Hi! It's been a while since I have finished a pico-8 game to be able to share it here, but this is one!
The controls are Z/C to Jump, and X/V = Shoot (or respawn if you become a slimepire)
~ Story: ~
Years after the horde have claimed Earth's surface, they find their way into Bunker 4103 - the last bastion of humanity. You awake in a remote part of the underground shelter, and if you want to remain human you must reach the bunker's deepest point: the safe room.
~ Extras ~
You can tip $3 or more on itch.io for access to extra goodies: illustrated & pixel maps, a comprehensive manual, and also a 2 hour video of me talking through the game project and its code.
i have no idea how this room is possible. you cannot reach the ladder and the jump is too far even if you do a somewhat precise sliding jump, you still fall just short. you can't diagonally shoot the barrel (which doesn't do anything as far as i can tell).
what are you supposed to do?
i got ending b, a secret room, and another secret room using a glitch, also did a pacifist and deathless run
edit: got to that first secret room using the same glitch aswell
edit 2: crashed game using glitch
edit 3: beat the game with left terminal off
edit 4: found speedrun skips for every terminal
edit 5: found a way to beat the bottom terminal without hitting button to open all terminal routes up
edit 6: idk how tf you get other endings, if anyone could inform me on how many ther are id be happy (dont tell me how to get them tho)
edit 7: got ending c
edit 8: got into safe room without any generators on lol
edit 9: got ending a
edit 10: i should probably post some proper feedback now:
this game is very polished, with fluid movement, and nicely made parkour sections, it makes the player think, but not too much, and the endings are quite nice once you finally find them. the game never confused me, but gave me different paths to take, which is quite nice. the different endings and routes are enough to keep a player enticed for the longest of times, 10/10.
edit 11: @ffa to hide text use 'hidden' and '/hidden' not 'hide' and '/hide'
@CrownDeluxe if you really want to get ending a then
also, if you are unable to find ending c, i know that one aswell.
what a great game! ill be sure to go give the $3 you're asking for as soon as i can! there are a few glitches - sliding and jumping in tight spaces can often result in the player warping within a room or even into an entirely different room.
I've gotten all 4 endings after about two hours of play. tip for ending D to everyone else, it is very similar to ending A except the exact opposite, it also showed me just how much care had to go into the level and enemy design, I appreciate it a lot. note about some secret things (rot13 to avoid spoiling): fnqyl gur svtug vf irel purrfnoyr ol fgnaqvat va gur fcvxrq cyngsbez naq fubbgvat qvntbanyl, fb gb vzcebir vg v jbhyq znxr gur nggnpx qvntbany nf jryy.
Thanks for all the kind words and feedback everyone (and thanks for playing!)
For Ending D, I’m pretty sure it’s possible to do it without dying (not sure if I’ve ever managed though :p), and the sliding glitch I found pretty early but deliberately kept in specifically for speedrunning. I thought casual players would be unlikely to find it but I’ve been proved wrong on that lol. Still, I don’t plan to remove it :)
I'm enjoying this game but have got totally stuck. How on earth do you shoot the red blob on this screen? If I get down to the spikes I can't shoot it because my bullets are too low. I thought I could shoot it from the ladder but any attempt to shoot from the ladder make me fall off.
i looked through me ending b pacifist run footage, saw the hole in the wall and got annoyed at myself, but cool ending d boss
@ChakAttack could you please explain what you did to obtain ending d through a glitch? ive gotten to that room but instantly died because i was at the top of the screen and you instantly get hit
@ChakAttack ok thank you, i do that to crush myself as a joke in my runs so there must be some other condition that ill research. it may be another instance of slide clipping so ill try jumping as i do it.
@Roninnozlo there is no "everyone dies" ending, but there are 3 other endings in the game for you to find, heres a hint for one of them:
edit (for @ChakAttack): i was correct, jumping while sliding under it will warp you into the hallway next to the good emprex, but exiting on the left will put you in the wall, if you jump then it clips you out though. this could be huge, thank you so much for sharing!
@pingüino324 yes, i know how to obtain ending d MAJOR SPOILER:
I really enjoy the game, this is by far one of my favorites! I managed to get all the endings except A. MINOR ENDING A SPOILER:
