Beyond the Deep [LD38]

Discover what lies outside your world!
A mermaid princess wonders about what lies in the great beyond.

Does she decide to go out there and see for herself? And who will she find helping her along the way?

The mysterious loner of a merman, or perhaps a reliable childhood friend?

A Visual Novel created for Ludum Dare 38, with the theme Small World.


Here's our effort for Ludum Dare 38.
Thanks again Scribbles for the logo. So indebted!
Because of the wonderful team we topped 10k, got 9 endings and awesome dungeon crawling and art.
I could not be happier with the results.

Aah, I really liked this! :D I love anything ocean, mermaid related so when I saw this I had to go for it. The art was so pretty, very soft and suited the theme really well. I enjoyed the easy flow of the writing as well, the dialogue was great fun at times! (I really liked Triss...)

What will you be releasing in the longer version? I'm really excited for that :)

I'm experiencing a bug... I lost all of my health on the first playthrough and now it's stuck at 0. Even beginning a new game starts me at zero on the first battle. I don't know if the two bugs are related, but none of the dialogue that happens during the dungeon crawl section was triggered my first time, either.

Yay! Seraphinite! :) :) :)
Triss is my favorite too. I'd be happy to reconvene and expand on it sometime though if the others are keen.

And Zelan - noooo! Not more bugs! We seriously had days of bug ridding. ;)
Will totally look into it.

Ah, such a fun and interesting little game! I liked Calder best, managed to get his best end on my first try. I know it's unlikely we'd be seeing a longer version of this at this point, but if you're still considering it go ahead and take this as my yes vote, haha.

While I was in the mood to play around with something I finally FIXED this so that all the ends can be seen. Let me know again if there are any other problems! ... d-the-deep
