An abstract action game, which started as an entry for the 2013 7DLR Competition, has just had its full version released. So Many Jagged Shards is a game about finding your way and squeezing through tight spaces as you try to survive and find the black vortex that marks the end of the level, which are all procedurally generated. The interesting thing is that the game started as a bit of a rogue-like title but was changed massively, retaining only a little bit of its roots. The levels, the background, and every single other graphic in the game is made entirely out of flat-shaded triangles.
You can play as one of the three default characters (using the term 'character' loosely), or you can design your own to use with the included editor. You navigate the mazes with your mouse, and activate various powerups you collect with a single click. Enemies will chase you around and steal one of your three hearts if they touch you. Powerups aren't used to fight enemies but instead to manipulate the maze you're in. Depending on your play style, you can reach one of five final levels. The game's soundtrack is generated in real time as you play, and as such will be different every time you play. Hit the jump for the trailer!
So Many Jagged Shards is available here for free on your PC.
