Description

A cave exploration game where you explore caves by descending into them on ropes.

The caves are procedurally generated and completely dark to begin with. To explore you will need to place flares strategically to light your way. This early playable version includes the core gameplay.

Requires pymunk, scipy

You left click on the rock areas to fire a rope. Make sure you shoot it relatively close to your character and fire it into the body of the rock and not the edge.

Once you are on the rope you can then move up and down, left and right using WASD keys. You then descend into the cave firing additional ropes in the same way. Left click deploys a new rope and right click does the same but picks up the rope you already deployed.

You can let go of the rope using Q and if you are swinging near a second rope you can use E to switch between ropes. The key assignments are also shown in the HELP screen.

To add light you click on the flares at the top right.


 

Changes

New in 0.3.1

  • Improved framerate by 30-50%
  • New gameplay video below shows off the sound texturing (dynamic sounds depending on your location)

The video below shows a short game where you enter the cave, locate a crystal and then, unfortunately, fall to your death.

Thanks -I am thinking that I need to introduce the gameplay to help people through it initially.

You left click on the rock areas to fire a rope. Make sure you shoot it relatively close to your character and fire it into the body of the rock and not the edge.

Once you are on the rope you can then move up and down, left and right using WASD keys. You then descend into the cave firing additional ropes in the same way. Left click deploys a new rope and right click does the same but picks up the rope you already deployed.

Thanks for picking up the error in the readme - this was an earlier name for the game!

Let me know if you are still having problems.

It's beautiful! But I don't really get how to play. Help didn't really help...

In the readme is a little error: "To run the game: python plutomurus.py "
