A downloadable game for Windows

Move to the edge of the world to grow it larger, and reveal an adventure!

The game is controlled entirely with arrow keys.

Tap a direction towards an opponent to fight.

Use temporary attack and defense boosts to fight more dangerous foes early, or come back to them later once you've grown in strength.

Made this prototype on Twitch, for the 48-hour Ludum Dare competition (LD38)! My twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/frankiepixelshow

I am working on a final, polished version of the game, with a bigger world map, tweaked level design, more varied enemies, a few quests and better treasure. I do most of that work on my Twitch stream linked above.

Let me just say something. I was SO excited to download this game and the second it did, I instantly started the game. I loved this so much. I was beyond addicted and I couldn't even be bothered to do anything else except play this game. I think the idea of a growing adventure is brilliant. Like the walking up to the wall and waiting for it to spawn was brilliant.  I hope more is added to it in the future! I love this game so freaking much and the very mention of the game fills me with joy.

I really enjoyed this game, for a game made in 48 hours this is quite impressive.
the fact that you had to discover the tiles as you went along was really entertaining
at first, but I think the fact that the map is for the most part static is hurting the game abit, after 2-3 times playing it you now where the important stuff is. But I think the main idea is quite promising, I hope you'll continue to improve this project, as it could really benefit just being polished a bit.
Here's a bit of my gameplay experience:

This game was sooo addictive.

I'll be voting for you for sure!

how do you save?

showed this game to my friends, and i immediately distributed copies of the game to them via USB drive, so i think we all love it XD

Is there any end to it? I feel like I've beaten every big monster even the sorcerer guy with the two big guards and death.

There's no "You Won" screen if that's what you're asking xP

Cool concept! Makes a relatively small world feel really big.

Great game, quite addicting, love the feeling exploring and finding small paths that lead into new areas. #savethebats
