Ludum Dare 45: Nothing

“Nothing” by Joellikespigs.

“[A] short platformer where you start with nothing. Including controls.”

What is a jump and run without background music, a health bar or even a control scheme? You can find that out by playing “Nothing”, a charming combination of a platformer, metroidvania and metagame, where you unlock one feature after another. At the start, the little character cannot move to any side at all. Then for the main time you will only be able to control it to the left, but even that can bring tricky situations with it. There are many little features hidden in “Nothing”. While it is of course useful to have a working jumping ability, others are more of a distracting nature, like a Navi-like fairy by your side, constantly mugging that you should finally listen, or sound effects of squeaking shoes.
