Stay in the Shadows–that is the title of this game and the only instruction you need to play.
Stay in the Shadows is a very different kind of game from what I’ve made in the past. I’m finally using the 3rd dimension! Almost all of my games have been 2d games and it is nice to learn some new things. I also got to explore a fun but simple light and shadow mechanic that I’ve wanted to try out for awhile.
There are currently 5 levels and you can only move left and right, jump, and crouch. You are always running. Your score is based on how much health you end the level with. What hurts your health? The sunlight!
So, stay in the shadows!
This game is my September 2014 entry for the One Game A Month project.
