I’ve developed this really weird habit of developing quick, little games around one type of variable/concept. These have included games like Shadows: The Darkness, Poop Tycoon (a jab at all those damn simulator games) and now The Floor Is Always Lava. I never really intend for these little projects to blossom into anything large, hell most of the time I do them for fun or to kill time while I’m sitting at home on my days off.
That being said, this is probably the one I’m most proud of at this stage. It’s fun, fast-paced, and you can play with some buddies. It pretty much takes the concept, and idea behind that game kids would play in their living-rooms but instead of jumping from various pieces of furniture, you’re standing in a room that’s quickly filling up with lava. It’s essentially a last-man standing sort of idea. I’ll probably look into adding more features sometime down the road (more maps, achievements, better visuals, etc) but for now it’s more of a concept test/tech demo in a sense.
Anyways, I just pushed the full release out on the IndieDB page, but it’s still waiting to verify. For the time being you can download the files from here. Installation instructions are below if you’re having issues.
