The more pages of lore you find, the worse things get. Made for Ludum Dare, make sure to read the instructions before playing!

Ludum dare submissions page

SHIFT to fireball (after you get the 2nd page), WASD to move, SPACE to shoot pistol.

Game has a checkpoint system in case you die.

Important information

Since I didn’t get to add this, this is what the pages do in order:

  • 1st: true sight - allows you to see things you wouldn’t otherwise
  • 2nd: fireball - shift to fire
  • 3rd: stone skin - acid no longer burns you and incoming damage is reduced
  • 4th: arcane leap - double jump
  • 5th: dimensional door - open sealed doors

There was supposed to be a good ending, but due to lack of time the game crashes instead of triggering it, so only the bad ending is available. The fade out is the bad ending (didn’t have time to add more to it).

i got stuck at the wall flesh thingy

You can use fireball there.

I know the Jam limits time to do stuff like this but  a "SHIFT FOR FIREBALL" popup when you get the fireball would help dumdums like me. Cool game!

Yeah there's a lot of usability stuff I wanted to get in, including text for when you pick up the pages detailing the powers, but alas, I ran out of time.
