A downloadable demo for Windows




In a hidden world full of weird creatures, a boy named Caleb must find his way to the deep end of this gigantic abyss called Endfall... but what really lies at the bottom? and why does he want to go there? It's up to you to discover it.

The world of Endfall is basically a giant cave that divides itself into layers, and every layer works like it's own little world. Every year, a new layer is created with a completely different habitat from the other ones, it could be a world made out of candy or a desert, or a forest,  ANYTHING can happen! 


This is a narrative-driven platformer that requires your skill to traverse through different levels with puzzles and parkour. Endfall focuses more on it's story, characters, and things like side quests and minigames. (Which will  be implemented in the full version)

You can play with your keyboard, however, it's highly recommended to play with your controller.

The attacks from most obstacles are badly telegraphed or not telegraphed at all, so you just run into them without knowing. Apart from that tiny hiccup, the game is amazing and i can't wait to get the full thing.

Pressing Enter when typing in your name at the beginning of the game makes the fox pop up and continue talking but the name typing screen is still there. When you press 'J' at 'OK' while Skye is overlapped, game crashes.

Absolutely great game, i'm typically not a fan of platformers but the visuals and narrative are great! cant wait to see the final product :D

This is a really cool game. I love the art and the music.

The music reminds me a little bit of Animal Crossing :)

I would change the controls like jumping with space, moving with wasd AND arrow keys, let the menu interact with the mouse and make the controls more obvious. It took me a lot of time to figure out wich buttons I have to press

the entire game will be paid?

yes

Made a video

The game is an absolute DELIGHT!  enjoyed every second of it, only let down.....was it's a demo! I cannot WAIT for more and I left a follow. Keep it up!!!!

Impressive! But i couldn't find how to save the game

You need to sit on benches :)

I love the way how it introduced new things, it keeps me into the game, kind of frustrating to play it at desktop at first, since idk what buttons to press, so I randomly tried every keys, but I get it, it clearly says, highly recommend for your controller. Overall, nice experience, introduction music is not that good for me, but the gameplay music is very catchy and it lessens my frustration when dying over and over again. Very challenging but not very frustrating, it's very fulfilling to finish a level after resurrecting tens of times, but maybe you can make the sense of fulfillment after finishing a level, like adding a little sound effect/s. Also, the screen resolution is too small, hope it can goes to full screen. Would play it again later in full version.

I'm glad you liked it! :) I'm planning on toning down the difficulty so the game doesn't become that frustrating to play through, after all, there's a lot of stuff I don't want anyone to miss. 

Also, you can change to full screen with F11.

or you can change at option..... change windows to fullscreen that all

Is this inspired by the anime 'Made in Abyss'?

(+1)

Yes, the layer system in the game is inspired by Made in Abyss and something called Dante's 9 circles of hell. I thought the concept was pretty cool so I implemented it to the game's world, but that's really about it. So don't expect any horror or stuff like that 😅

Amazing game! I usually don't like platformers, but I really enjoyed this. Great design, loved the atmosphere built with the art and music.
Looking forward to the game's future :)

Thanks :)

very original

Do you doing this game on GMS 2?

yep

Cool! I understand this by game folder.

I really enjoyed this! It's really fun and challenging! I ran into a glitch, I think. When I first went into the room with the 2 statues I spawned at the heart, and got it without first passing the statues.

I am too, but i passed it, then understand i already have it. ;-;

Fixed it! Thanks for letting me know

Nice!

(+1)

Game is very nice, but it have some problems, controls is very strange, HJKL is not a best choice. When you died you spawn in 999 miles from your death point, everything else is very nice, graphic is nice, music too. Good job

(1 edit)

I tried to make the deaths a bit different from traditional platformers but it seems like it just makes the game a lot harder, going to try and improve it for the future and add more forgiving checkpoints👍

(+1)

THAT TEASER, OMG!!!! The game is awesome and lovely and... WOW!!! What a magnificent job!

i shall break every gam

i have broken a downloadable game now

Please, may I suggest changing the keyboard controls from HJKL to IJKL? And swapping the scarf from L to K, so it's adjacent to the jump button? That would make things a lot better.

Don't worry, the full version will have a key binding feature so you can customize your controls to whatever style you want. But for now, the demo's gonna stick with those controls.

speaking of keybinding, how do you select yes on the is this name ok part?

oh nvm i just found out lmao

Will there be support for PS4 controllers?

(2 edits) (+1)

I don't think the game engine I'm using supports PS4 controllers, but I'll check if there's any way I can add that to the game

Hey, Kenneth. This game looks adorable! I'm excited to delve into the story rich world. 

I was wondering if it was okay to make some videos of this game on my YouTube channel? What about monetizing those videos?

I'd like to make the following:

  • first impression feedback/gametesting video of the demo
  • summary of feedback for other game devs making similar games in the form of likes and suggestions
  • first impression of game trailer
  • critical analysis of itchio game page in the form of likes and suggestions
  • a lets play video

Let me know what you think.

Yeah, it's totally fine! You can monetize them if you want too. I'm excited to see what you think of it 👍

(+1)

Thanks for giving me permission. I'll post links when I'm done. :D

(+1)

Interesting world, want to see more, hope there's maybe some elements of horror involved (Just my own personal take, hah). Otherwise, gameplay, feedback and commentary within

(+1)

Played this game on GameJolt too but I wanted to say this game is awesome pls dont stop making it :)

Thanks, don't worry development is still on board 👍

Hi. I played your game and included it in a video. I like how fun and wonderful it is. Sometimes, it felt challenging, but I could quickly figure out what to do. However, at the end of the video I stuck and could not do anything. Also, it deleted my save files. I do not know why. If you want to cut your game out of the video, let me know. However, if you like the video, I make similar videos every day. I will be happy if you subscribe. Anyway, I enjoyed playing your game.

Ok! so I just watched the video and I replayed this exact version with different controllers and 2 different computers and I could not replicate this bug, maybe try to redownload the game to see if that works. 

As for the save files, the demo does not autosave, you need to sit on benches to save the game, that's why it showed as empty.

ok. Sure. I will try to check it again.

Hey. I replayed your game. It worked because I used different buttons now. I do not know why it does not work with xbox controller arrow keys. I finished the demo. It was a fun experience. :D

So sorry for that bug you had, it seems like it was an issue with the D-pad code, I was using the joystick when I tried it so that's why that bug didn't happen to me. 

But, I'm glad you liked the DEMO, been taking a lot of notes on your playthrough so I can make the full game better, thanks for playing!👍

All games have issues or bugs. I created some games too, and I think that your game is impressive. It is a lot of work there. I did not mean anything bad if I said something wrong on that video. :D

(+1)

A fantastic demo! Keep it up! (although I have to admit it was a bit hard 😅)

Glad you liked it!
