[LD30] Dream Witch Erika

Post by SimonLarsen » Thu Sep 04, 2014 8:53 pm

Hi guys. Just wanted to show the game Lukas and I made for Ludum Dare 30.

Dream Witch Erika

This time we decided to try our hand at making a metroidvania type platformer.
This proved to be a lot more work than we could handle in 72 hours and the game suffers quite a bit from that, especially the level design. We're still pretty satisfied with what we accomplished and we hope you'll like it as well.

Also a big shoutout to kikito and vrld for middleclass and hump. They proved really valuable once again!

Like all the other games I've seen from you guys so far, it looks and plays pretty well. Good job!

The app runs fine, but I'm getting this error, when trying to run directly from source on OSX:

That's because hump and MiddleClass are included as submodules.

If you use git, you can clone the repo with

Code: Select all

git clone --recursive https://github.com/SimonLarsen/DreamWitchErika.git
If not, you'll have to download MiddleClass and hump manually.
Help us help you: attach a .love.

Thanks for the kudos!

This game looks great, but I had trouble with the controls.
  • How am I supposed to enter the dreams of people right at the start? I just pressed keys until one worked
  • As much as I tried, I was not able to do any wall jump
  • As a result, I got stuck very early on each dream. Pressing "l" didn't seem to do anything. Is it the right key?
EDIT: In fact, the L key doesn't seem to do anything at all (no dash). I am on a Mac, if that helps.
When I write def I mean function.

You enter the dreams by pressing the attack button (J)

All abilities besides the basic attack and jump needs to be unlocked in the game which is why you cannot dash or wall jump. Try entering the first dream from the left and take it from there. :)

Really cool :awesome:

I like the "aha!" moments I get in it. It makes me keep trying.
