A downloadable game for Windows
"Exilus" is a Sci-Fi Metroidvania-esc platformer.
Inspired by such games as Exile (1988) and Metroid (1986/1987/1988), you control a small pixelated spaceman trying to find his way off of a hostile planet while combating hostile invaders and exploring deep caverns and ancient ruins.
The game will feature two difficulty settings which change power-up locations and level design (hopefully adding replay value) as well as an introduction/tutorial, and will encourage player exploration as opposed to linear game-play (at least to an extent).
The game will also feature a randomized powerup mode that changes the locations of most major upgrades and guns on a run-by-run basis.
There is no defined story-line implemented as of yet, though a loose introduction and epilogue will play before and after each new game. In-game text is minimal. At the moment, the game is being developed by a single dev, with music potentially in the works from another contributor. No full release date as of yet.
Current download is a Demo version of the game, and does not necessarily represent the final product.
