Hi all !

First of all, sorry for my bad english :(


Introduction

I works for Galhmac Game, a french indie game dev, on our first production : Exodus.
We're are 3 guys working hard for this particular game.

Exodus is a 2D plateform/Exploration (metroidvania) game for Windows, with oldschool gameplay mechanics, and HD native resolution (1920*1200). Musics are made by Yann Van Der Cruyssen (Saira, Block That Matter).

In Exodus, you take control of Zoulux or Ly'Sax, and go to discover a stange and vaste world. Their unique abilitie is to absorb Vital Energy from the fauna, or by exploring the world. With this, they'll be able to evolve differents skills (like double jump, more strengh, dash, etc), that changes the gameplay directly.

Here is some screenshots of the actual alpha build :

You can test an Alpha version of the game for free here : (1Go file, EN/FR language)

If you're an ATI user, you'll not be able to launch the game actually. But you can use this temporary Dll Fix (just place it in /BIN/RELEASE) :

This could help, but not perfect. (really sorry for that, an incompatibility with sfml 1.6, or something like that, an update you'll coming soon). If the game encounter big lag with this dll fix, try to turn OFF the HD mode in the options, or play in windows mode.

To finish this post, you can found a gameplay footage of Exodus here :
