In a dystopian future, when people die they become cyberghosts. Their body can be recovered automatically... for a fee. Explore the rooftops of this neon-tinged city, meet the locals, and have your own brush with death... over and over and over!
The arrow keys move you in both human and cyberghost form. When NPCs have a dialog option you can press the Q key to accept it. Once you come into possession of the Respawn Bracelet, you can respawn by pressing T in cyberghost form.
This jam serves as essentially the opening chapter of a potentially large adventure. It's my mistake for picking a genre not well suited to game jams. Think of this as demonstrating the mechanic and setting a cool scene! Once you've crossed the bridge and seen the second "No Ghost" sign you've seen the whole area, but you can feel free to poke around and play with the mechanics. It ends when you feel like it!
I made the entire thing myself, with about 8 hours of total time spent according to Game Maker. The fonts are from Chevy Ray's pixel font collection
- Game Maker Studio 2 (obviously)
- Aseprite (this tool rules)
- PreSonus Studio One for the music/sounds
OK you've been patient, here they are. Check it out and go play the game! Please give me your feedback
This seemed pretty nice idea, cyberpunkish and ghosts, had good vibes. I dig that background music changed during ghost phase. There wasn't much to play, but you can continue from this. Maybe not the same project, but the idea. You got the neon lights about right, nice ^^ It was good entry :)Submitted
IT'S EXTREMELY LOUD???? Had to put it a like 5%.
This seemed interesting, sad this is so short. It's all pretty good, but I really dig the character's artstyle!Submitted
Sorry about the volume! It didn't seem that loud on my end, I guess putting a volume control slider in the game would be the best long-term solution if I were continuing this. I'm glad you enjoyed it, I wish I had time to implement more of my ideas as well. Thanks for playing!
I think some parts of your levels where difficult to figure out what to do and i wish your cyber ghost graphic was a bit more interesting.
However i think the game is pretty decent despite not being able to complete it. You really nailed it on most of the graphics and sound/music well done.
