Endeavor is a game about a dwarf trying to uncover an ancient secret. Or maybe it's about exploring, climbing, and swimming. Or perhaps it's about collecting powerups and treasure. Or possibly it's just about killing things.

With multiple endings, quests, interactive npcs and ambient critters, it's my most involving game yet! It features many original musical tracks, several upgrades, and an engaging climbing and endurance scheme.

Controls:
Left/Right arrows to move
X to jump
Up/Down arrows to climb
P to pause and display collections
C to advance text
Q to return to the title screen (Use this if the game gets stuck for some reason!)

Volume controls:
-/+ to adjust volume
0 to mute

This game was made in one month for the Ludum Dare October challenge, though it took another month for release!

If you like this game, be sure to check out some other AWESOME games that inspired me!
-Shadow of the Colossus
-Knytt
-Level Up!
-Robot Wants Kitty

(Remove the two spaces in the link to get it to work... I'm not sure why it's doing that!)

Enjoy!

Note: Once you've reached an ending, you won't be able to get a different ending without restarting the game. Don't worry, getting the other endings is much faster when you know where everything is!

Update: Some people are getting lag whenever they touch a flower- this is due to an auto-save feature that I've decided to remove (note that the game still autosaves whenever you collect a powerup or switch screens, just not on touching flowers anymore). I've submitted the latest version which should get approved soon, so bear with me! Thanks for playing!

Update 12/2: There seems to be a bug with running out of endurance underwater and getting trapped in air bubbles. I'm working on fixing it! If this happens, press Q to return to the main menu, and then reload your save file.

Update 12/3: Patched to fix the underwater bug, pressing escape now pauses AND unpauses. Added tip menu screen to press p to see collections. Also added an additional creature on the island above the light beam. Hopefully the update goes live soon!

Update 12/11: Added a link to a full map of the game, see above!

Reviews


In a way...

this kind of reminds me of Shadow of The Colossus (r) in a way because of the forever youth fruit and eating them to gain endurance *SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ IF YOU WANT THE GAME SPOILED* and the diety you so longed to help actually turned out to be evil, so i guess you could say it was a base but this game has more Interaction with other people than just you by yourself. Great Game not quite an original concept but you made a good storyline and you most likely put a lot of time and effort in it and i give both a 10/10



Best Newgrounds Platform Game Ever!!!

I've played hundreds of games on Newgrounds and this is by far the best platform game that's ever been posted here. So much fun! I really hope you make a part two...maybe with our hero killing all those those bastards that were mean to him in the beginning of the game...VENGENCE!!!


People find this review helpful!

The game was very awesome man good job!Anyways I would think that you should keep it a bit shorter because its an art game.Just please learn from this review and to the other looking at this,thank you.



Yay!

Predictable storyline but fun nonetheless; FAR better than One Chance and much more deserving of the front page!

I have 2 secret medals left and I have a good idea what one is and some thoughts about the other... And it's replayable enough that I don't want to check a walkthrough; congratulations on making a good game!



you no this is a good time waster ):<

but thats ggod when you have nothing to do great job!!!
