Based on feedback I've gotten in my drawings/art thread I decided to make a separate thread for my game development efforts here.

DIRT is a project I've been working on for quite some time.

It's a 2D Metroid-inspired platformer dealie made in Game Maker: Studio and, to avoid giving too much away, it's about venturing underground to locate your best friend. It's presently free and noncommercial (because various permissions/copyright issues MIGHT just prevent me from actually trying to make money from it, more on that later)

You can follow my game development blog at http://dirt-dev.tumblr.com/

To download the most recent version of DIRT (as of this post), click here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7zty6h5mxom7zyg/DIRT_DEMO_v4_5.exe?dl=0

To see other versions of DIRT (all downloads right now are Windows only due to technical difficulties) click here: http://dirt-dev.tumblr.com/downloads

Oh and here are some screenshots




Graphics were made using MS-PAINT and Game Maker's built-in image editing tools and occasionally Photoshop.

Sounds and Audio are also mostly custom. The title music is currently a placeholder and will probably go at some point. Everything else was made in Bosca Ceoil and Audacity (and thanks to the magic of databending, sometimes Photoshop and Notepad++ get in on the action HERE too)

The font being used is the PCPaint Font Collection which you can find at the link.
