Ahoy there Tiggers.

I've been lurking around here from time to time, watching things unfold. When the new competition hit it suddenly occured to me how I could make a simple procedural engine, so I did a bit of a spur-of-the-moment thing and put together a bunch of random stuff. Not the most glorious game (had to keep it simple since I can't program to save my life,) but I figured I'd share since it was meant to go with this competition anyway. Anywhoo, here's what I cooked together:

The Adventures of Charles Dumbbell



Charles Dumbbell: A Strongman at the local circuis, part time pilot and adventurer. During one of his many travels, he finds himself lost in the Witch cave (somewhere west of Bloksberg,) a cave that never looks the same twise. Armed only with his jetpack, fists of steel and earth shattering mustache, he must find the witches causing the shifts and put a stop to it once and for all. Will he make it out alive?!




Features:
 - Exploring: Using your bare fists and jetpack, punch your way through the caves to find hidden items and areas.

 - Hexing: On every stage is a witch that will put you under a spell. You will change into a random form, say... a flying dinosaur head, or get set on fire. To break the spell, you are given a random task to complete. Escape the giant Drillshark. Kill your enemies. Dance for the squid monster.


I won't make the deadline with this in time, but if I manage to solve a bug by tomorrow, I will be posting a demo. I've found better ways to make the game, so we'll see if will stay in it's present form.

Bug fixed. Hopefully, I can improve the gameplay by tomorrow.

Holy shit, this looks amazing. Can't wait to dance for the squid monster... :D

No squid dancing in the demo so far. Making squids happy is a pretty complex procedure...

Wuh... wait a minute...
