Eternal Dungeon by Nelde Eternal Dungeon by Nelde
Eternal Dungeon
is a game prototype I made in school. The task was to take a retro game and reproduce it in Gamemaker, while adding a new concept.

I chose The Legend of Zelda and turned it into some kind of Survival/Action mashup.
Basically, you go from room to room and kill enemies until you die. Theoretically for ever, hence the name. ;)
I finally got to use the paper cut-out style again!

Arrow Keys: Move Link
Y: Use Item (if you have one)
X: Use Sword
(Note, this was made for a QWERTZ keyboard, where Y is in place of Z in the QWERTY keyboard, tell me if you have any difficulties playing it)

So, yeah... download it, try it out and tell me what you think. :D
Oh, and don't forget, it's a beta version, so there are some bugs...

Very good! One little glitch though... If you press the sword button repeatedly and move at the same time, the game creates 2 swords.

What I try to open the game I get this error:

action number 1
of Trigger Event: <Deleted>
for object Start:
Error defining an external function.

I REEEEELY want to try it!

I have no idea what causes this error... Did you try it on a different computer or something?
I'm not working on this game anymore, so I probably won't be able to fix it.

I tried it on two different computers but no luck. What I really want is to see the game art close up. Do you have any medium to high resolution stills online? I absolutely love the style.

Well, did you already see those: [link] ?
DreamIn8bit Featured By Owner May 1, 2012
No, no I did not! Very smexy! Is your offer still open to do art for a game? I'm a C programmer and I was looking for an artist.
Nelde Featured By Owner May 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
Well, the offer was that someone could use my sprites for a game and that I might do some more if needed and if I like the project. :)
I don't really have the time to do the art for an entirely different game.
