Post news RSS Version 2 Now Released

Trophies/Achievements and Controller support are just a couple of new features added to Escape the Underground.

Posted by on

In August 2013, I created "Escape the Underground" for the Ludum Dare competition. Recently, I took part in the latest competition and was motivated to add features to this game I hadn't before. This includes:

  • Highscore tables and trophies/achievements that you can unlock
  • Better controls (a lot of people experienced problems jumping, this has been fixed)
  • Widescreen support (was a fixed 4:3 aspect ratio before, now it resizes to fit your screen)
  • Controller support (confirmed working with Xbox 360 controllers)
  • Remastered music

If you're interested in a little more detail about each point, read my blog post about it.

Apart from all of this, I've rewritten the game in Game Maker Studio (compared to GM8), which will allow me to port to Mac, Linux and Android in the future, and speeds the game up massively.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy playing Escape the Underground!
