A downloadable game for Windows

The Squire project was my first real attempt at getting a full-length game out. However, a combination of inexperience, lost motivation and an utterly ridiculous amount of 'feature creep' choked and killed it after a few months.

What this contains is most of what went into the last demo.  Because this was my quintessential 'crappy first game', expect crude graphics, broken functionality and 'nintendo hard' gameplay due to poorly-designed attacks.

(Old-school adventure platformer in the Metroidvania genre)

Controls are shown by pressing F1, as well as a lot of my notes.

Install instructions

The project is an executable, made in legacy Game Maker, version 7. I know it runs on Windows 7 and earlier, anything else I can't guarantee.
