A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

IGASCALBNIAAAIMD is a top-down shooter made for the Ludum Dare 44 Jam

The theme was "Your life is currency" and this is the result. As it is, it's unfinished and the game's story isn't shown anywhere, so I'll tell it here:

You died and then Death resurected you as an axolotl. But it wasn't for free! Now you are in debt and have to pay with the souls of immortal beings (plus interests every thirty seconds).

Originally the game was going to have 4 enemies (zombies, demons, lichs and shadow figures) plus a vampire boss and a lot of different bubbles and upgrades.

Alas, the game has only 4 types of bubbles, one enemy (zombies) and a shop. Also simple procedural dungeons and some stats. The game doesn't even feature Lizzie (Death) :(

You're right. It slipped my mind. Thanks. And thanks for playing :)


Any plans to continue development?

I'm not really sure. At least not this month, because I'm quite busy. Also, the game is a bit too similar to Nuclear Throne, so it's not really original or anything. I'd like to make another game too. Anyways, probably yes, but not in the near future.  

Thanks for playing!


Never heard of Nuclear Throne, but I'll look it up! Thanks for the reply.
