Skeletons and Skulls

Share Collapse

Author Comments

CONTROLS: WASD/Arrow keys to move, left/right mouse button to attack, 1,2 and 3 number keys to summon skeletons.


This is a submission to the Brackeys 2021.1 game jam. The theme was "Stronger together" so i made a game about a necromancer who summons skeletons to help himself.


If the browser lags too much you can download a standalone build here (its free dont worry, also highly recommended as it should lag way less): https://cheesebaron2.itch.io/skeletons-and-skulls


UPDATE:

Just a small update to polish up a few small things.

Added 2 skeletons, a really strong enemy and a new item.

Also made it more clear when you can attack (and even made it just a bit faster).

Also tried to optimize it but i dont really know if it works so i very much recommend to just download the standalone version.

I like getting a bunch of orbital skulls that shoot whatever those projectiles are.

Two part PLSSS

I HAVE AN ARMY OF MINIONS, AND THEY ARE ALL FUNKY. LOOK AT HIM HE IS JUST A FLOATING HEAD WOOOOOOO

Yeah, even though you have to spam out skeletons I find it fun because you can just collect the souls and let the base skeleton do literally everything else, so it adds a chaotic sense to the game

I love the concept and the game itself. I could see some updates made such as:
-Skin change (Color of the Clock, the eyes.
-New weapons (maybe a gun)
-New gamemodes. After the first 2 levels the game essentially becomes "How many/fast you can spam skeletons"
-Inventory (Where you can see all your upgrades, Level, Floor.
-Achievements (Such as: Floor 10/50/100; Multi kill, Guardian angel (After extra life is used)
-In-Game effects above the head (Multi kill achievements such as (Triple, Quadra, Penta)
-More buffs (Life steal ,speed buff nerfed, dmg reduction)

CheeseBaron, those are just some ideas that would be nice to see in the game. But the game as it is already brings a lot of fun. If you'd like to implement any ideas, and would like to hear more of them. Dont hesitate to contact me!! (Btw ive played this for 1 month already and i cant stop.)
One of the best games ive played so far

CheeseBaron responds:

Sadly i cannot modify this game as i dont use game maker anymore but at some point id love to make a remake/full game version of it. Thanks for your feedback and playtime!
