Downfall - new game released

(Yeah, it's been out for several days already and most of the people who are interested will already know but it still deserves an announcement here I think...)

On April 9th, 2012, the full version of Downfall was released into the wild.



Ever had one of those nightmares (or dreams, if you're that way inclined) that you're constantly falling? Well with Downfall, those dreams (nightmares?) become a reality. Sort of. It would have to be a very specific dream, in which you're a mouse and are trying to make sure you land on platforms that are constantly moving upwards FOREVER. Until you do something careless like die. By falling off the bottom to your doom, or being squished at the top.

Yes folks, that's all there is to it. In Downfall, eventually you will die, be it through incompetence or boredom. Your aim is to delay the inevitable for as long as possible by staying on the screen while the platforms scroll up the playfield. This means that should you be too slow, you'll disappear off the top of the screen and it's game over, but being too eager or otherwise making an embarrassing misjudgement means you will meet your end by dropping off the display.


The game can be downloaded from its dedicated website at http://downfall.mikendezign.com/

(System requirements: 1MB Chip RAM)

A dedicated AGA version is planned!

Remainder Software can be found on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/RemainderSoftware so please come and Like us!

We're always looking for people to help us with future projects (programmers, artists and musicians), so do drop me a line if you're serious about helping us create new Amiga games.

Have fun!

Needless to say that the latest issue of Amiga Mania mentions it in the news section...

Please, if possible, replace the team logo in HOL with this one (without the word PRESENTS):

Yes indeedy

The feel of the game with that music just smacks of late 80s, early 90s Amiga productions. Real old skool feel.

Cracking work Graham. Proud to be involved in some small way.

Just so you know, there are 10 levels with unique tile graphics, so your going to have to put some effort in and get screenshots from all 10 levels!

Good question... I think they might object if I ask to review it

Thanks for the nice comments!

For anybody interested, the full source code is now available from the game's website.
