Another Kind of World (Remake)

Post by MadByte »

So...
about two weeks ago I had a nostalgic moment when I searched for old LÖVE games I could remember playing (and enjoying) when I was more active in the forums. Most of them still can be found (like Mr.Rescue, Sienna, Stabyourself games, etc) but for one I just found a broken fork (after quite some digging), so I decided to use the assets and make it playable again. (I hope it's okay for you, daandruff)...

This is a complete rewrite of Another Kind of World, an old Ludum Dare entry originally submitted by daandruff back in 2012 (old topic).

Can anyone else remember the game? :)

Changes: V1.3.0
Daandruff decided to join me on remaking his old game(!) (for the moment), so the game has seen quite some changes since V1.2.0.
  • New level file format!
  • New sprite and tile graphics made by daandruff!
  • New sounds & a new loop song made by daandruff!
  • Improvements to the level editor!
  • New tile: Lava!
  • Many tweaks and fixes
Github repo

V1.3.0: love (mirror) - Win32 executable (zipped)
(older versions can be found in the release section on Github)

I wasn't here to remember that game, but it sure looks ahead of its time. It looks on par with today's LudumDares.

As a side-note, Stabyourself Games and Tangram Games (Starting with Duck Marines) eventually led me to Love2D... specifically when Sienna explicitly credited it.

Ah, different browser implementations here we go. Tested on chrome (mac + Windows only). More improvements to go! Thanks!

Edit: This is a Firefox "feature" that you can toggle: https://github.com/ggerganov/kbd-audio/issues/9
