Hello, here's a game I started making recently. It's a Platformer/Adventure game and is being made in Flash (ActionScript3) and Flashpunk. The game was started during the Ludum Dare 24 competition with the theme "Evolution", and I decided to continue working on it.
The concept of the game is to evolve the game itself. It starts off in the first generation of games, the “Odyssey” era, then through the “Atari”, “NES” and eventually the “SNES” era. The games complexity, the graphics, and your abilities improve as it evolves.
After you reach the 4th generation, you'll gain the ability to switch between the different gens at will. Each gen has different rules, so each has it's own advantages and disadvantages to be in. It could also add a certain puzzle element, figuring out which generation to use at what time.
The next demo I release will end at the same point as the current demo, except with more features and content.
Most recent screens are near the top. Click to see larger image.

Keep in mind that it's very unpolished and short, but as a demo it's pretty good.ControlsMove
