Objectives of the game:
In the Garden you control Atom.
What is the Plot?
- Surrealist take on The Garden of Eden and the Fall of Man.
- Outsmart predator enemies, as you attempt to find Eva and hunt down the deity "El".
- Explore a strange new world; where Destruction leads to Creation.
- Destroy nearly everything in your path.
- Discover the secrets that exist in the story of Eden...
By now you all know the story of Temptation.
El created Atom from the dust of the ground and in his sleep, split Atom to create Eva.
Atom knew that to eat from the Tree of Knowledge was forbidden.
Tempted by the serpent, Eva offered Atom the fruit...
Atom knowingly chose to sin
"Cursed is the ground because of you; until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. You are dust,and to dust you shall return."
Eva was ripped out of existence from this world and forever remains, drifting through dimensional planes...
Expelled from the garden and now alone Atom became increasingly rebellious. Using his new obtained knowledge Atom created a weapon and busted back into Eden...
This was the first game maker project I started making.
Recently I decided to re-write my project from scratch after nearly two years since I starting playing with Game Maker.
The intent of this game was to create a hectic platform shooter;
Where destroying terrain was both a strategy, defense, and general way of getting around the levels.
Destructive terrain acts as a good puzzle system in terms of using the terrain to your advantage.
The whole game aims to be a Random juxtapositionDestruction = Creation
Most graphics I'd consider still pretty "placeholder" not sure if I will be making the terrain have textured tiles, or just keep it silhouetted like it is.
The player controls a corrosive gun, capable of destroying most anything it touches.
He also has grenades which he can throw at a controlled velocity. (this replaced the old missile)Creatures included so far:Chain chompah
(attached to starting position)
Moving turret (horizontal movement)
Static hidden turret (pop-up and shoot)
Missile turret (homing missile towards player)
Floating swarm (fly around the player/avoid water)Drill Pig
(breaks through bricks)Colt
(mountable - walks across danger tiles)
Vermes (random spawn - breaks through small bricks)
Foawr (fall brick - elevator)
Slug (explodes and releases gas)
Monopods (jump around and hop over small gaps)
Regen Wall (regenerates walls around it's self)Enemies planned:
Laser beam enemy (shoot small laser)
Grenade throwing enemy (throw grenade towards player)
Wall and Ceiling climber (obvious climbs around) aka Phlegm
Level plan; The idea is to work off the Kaballah Tree of Life.Credit is always due where needed

I am currently looking for any musician(s) to help out with this game.
The scope for music tracks I'm going for is about 10-15 tracks for levels + 5 boss tracks.
(I can always use more music, I plan to have about 50+ play-able levels hopefully more.
Each track would have a different theme or emotion based on the chapter going for it such as; Wisdom, Love, Truth, Power, Intrusive, Choice, Creation, Destruction ect.
So roughly 15 songs, if you feel this is way too many songs, I can use Creative Commons tracks such as the examples below for filler.
The type of music I'm going for is dark ambient experimental type music.
Here are some examples of what I'm kind of shooting for.01020304
