This is not minimalist

This game was made from scratch in 48 hours for the Ludum Dare 26. Theme : Minimalism.

You are a mighty warrior, and you spend your life doing quests for various NPC in a medieval fantastic setting.
But what if your whole world disappeared and there were no more colors, no more details ? Even the way people talk has changed, only the essential words are left.
Solve the puzzles and get the world back the way it was. Or not ?

walkthrough :

Controls :
- M to mute
- arrow keys
- X, C to talk to NPC
- 1 for the map (when you have it), then 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 on the map screen to go to another location (if you enter your current location, it does nothing)
- X to pick up an object when possible
- 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. to drop an object

Tips if lost :
- revisit the locations you know to see if changed.
- try to combine the objects by dropping them

loved it, i got stuck because i have an aversion to instructions, but then i scrolled down and did hat it said, i dropped items on top of each other, or jumped on them to destroy them and boom, the whole game opened up. loved the ending, he basically became the first rectangle he met. anyway, great little ludum dare game based on minimalism. loved it.

Needs more

I like this game it's sort of unique and has some good ideas here that white part was kind of hard but I liked it the game was creative and there's stuff to do but wish it was longer and more stuff to do more interactivity could make it more fun

Fun game but could use more interactivity


I wish it was longer, but other than that it was good. Great for a 48 hour game. Poor guy...

Really cool experience. Thank you!

That was a very strange game. I had no idea how to get past the pure white part. Well, at least it was unique. I say that too much. Or I guess type it? The music was pretty good.

It did seem pretty minimalist. I know what that means. I look up tropes all the time. You did have some good mobility. It just wasn't rewarding.
