A development log is live here!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
UPDATE: v1.0.2 is released. It simply adds a QoL change to add checkpoints in, if the permadeath aspect is too difficult: https://github.com/TaizWeb/project-proton/releases/tag/v1.0.2
The game version currently hosted here was the one originally submitted to the jam, simply lacking this change.
Arrow keys to move, X to fire, Z to jump. Left shift/ctrl used later in the game.
To open doors, fire dark matter (shift-X) into them.
Project Proton is a short game I created for Metroidvania Jam 8. All code/graphics were created by myself, with the music and sounds by phantomrain.
All the crabs on aggy diggy
Those nice girls on smug
My internet friends who watched me
break make the game
And everyone else who cheered me on!
Linux: Install love2d 11.1 and run the .love file
Windows/MacOS: Extract the zip and open the executable
