** 30,000 views! What a nice number. Thanks for playing, anyone who played!
**UPDATE 5/9 - Fixed a performance issue. Should run a little smoother. Also, frontpaged, woo-hoo!
**UPDATE 5/7 - Added "CTRL" as a run option for those with keyboard issues. This might have erased some people's data. I hope not, but if so I'm sorry :/ your scores/medals are of course still there.

Inspiration Dave is a platformer. You control a character on a mission to find inspiration through musical notes throughout whatever world he lives in - via going through 33 small platforming stages, with three goals: Finish the stage, collect all 20 notes, and finish the stage 100% very quickly! Only finishing the stage is necessary. There are unlockable secrets for how many notes you collect and stages you finish quickly. I wrote the soundtrack and created the graphics myself, for better or worse! :)

Controls: "/" denote any of the keys work.

X/J/UP/SPACE/W: Jump (tap/hold to change height)
CTRL/Z/K: Hold to run, cancel menu
SHIFT: Toggle "auto-run!" you'll always run with this on. Not advised as you will want more fine-tuned movement in some spots, but hey, do whatever.
left/right, or A/D: Move
DOWN/S: Enter door/interact
P: Pause, Q: Quit stage, R: Restart stage, M: Mute

Made over 12/11-3/12, but mostly 2012.

It's not! I noticed that game after release and was very amused by how similar a title I managed to pick.

Great Game its an Addictive Game but with the Time it come bored an Dificult, but I liked Good 8 Bit I dont see Bugs you Have a Good Game Here and the Controls are Good.

This game is simply addicting
I find myself retrying every time until I get the best 100% time, but until then, I can't move on.
The music/art/feel of the game is great, the story line is a bit "eh", which is why its only a 4.5 rating from me, but the game is incredible
Props to you man.

Seagaia responds:

Yes, I agree, the story is somewhat...lacking! (It has some references to a band, but other than that is a bit, uh, tacked on!) Glad you liked it so much otherwise.

I must say that I really enjoy this game.
The graphics, sound, and overall feel of the game is very reminiscent of '90's SVGA games on the pc, which is a fond memory!
Keep up the great work and I really hope you make more gems like this one in the near future!

Seagaia responds:

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it so much and it gave you some happy nostalgia as well!

Good game i must say. The lvl count was like the original super mario bros. but the entering of stages resembled a sonic the hedgehog game. Interesting...

Seagaia responds:

Glad you caught the sort of reference to those sorts of scene transitions. I would say sonic gave me the idea, which reminded me of Yoshi's island 2, and it was kind of ripped wholecloth from that <_<
