A downloadable game for Windows
"If purpose" is a risk and reward based game about the insane, made in 48h for Game Maker's Toolkit Jam.
Audio captured and edited with- Audacity.
All the rest made with- Game Maker Studio 1.4.
Controls: "AWSD" to move "Control" to shoot where you're facing and "Space" to shoot backwards, while standing still "Space" charges blast attack, that one-shoots enemies, replenishes sanity-meter, but leaves you open to attack. When sanity-meter goes out it damages you. Therefor you have to sit with "Space" and not only charge, but stay sane. You can get up by pressing "Space" when siting. Enemies when killed drop souls that heal you, but also effect your sanity. It's a balancing act of sorts.
My thank's go out to HeartBeast, Making Games 101 and Shaun Spalding. I have learned a lot from them, but came up with my own ideas(probably why the game's so janky). Uploading this from work. That's why I'm 2 hours late, but haven't really worked on in the last 5 or 6 hours so feel I'm within the ruleset of the jam. This is my first jam and first, more or less, finished project. Hope you liked, if not the game then the idea behind it.
