A downloadable game for Windows

Dimlands tells the story of an overly-ambicious explorer, lead into the deepest and darkest paths of a misterious pyramid by the promess of gold and fame, with only the dim light of a torch to keep him company... Little does he know that a sinister and unspeakable secret awaits him at the heart of the seemingly abandoned ruins. 


About the Game

Made over the course of 6 months, this is meant to be a proof of concept for our game, wich will hopefully be ending development by 2018. 

Inspired by old-school isometric games such as Knight Lore, this version of the game packs most of the basic mechanics for the final game, including several types of traps, various kinds of items and consumables, and a diverse array of endings, wich will vary depending on how the player died, or how much money he was carrying when he got out of the pyramid.

The team currently includes the following individuals:

  • Raquel Carranza - Lead Artist
  • Emilio Mas - Lead Animator
  • Javier Irala - Lead Level Designer
  • Víctor M. - Composer
  • Tomás Patiño (me) - Lead Programmer and Producer


Instructions

Explore the pyramid and collect as much treasure as you can. Once you've had enough, return to the exit (the white glowing block) to unlock one of several possible endings.

The time you have left before the torch runs out is represented by the clock on the top left of your screen. You can replenish that timer with the yellow bottles that are all over the pyramid.

Dimlands was really fun! Here's some gameplay of it! 

What am I supposed to do with the yellow bottles I pick up? At one point my torch turns off and I die, I wonder is it because I'm running out of oxygen?

Hey there!

The yellow bottles are meant to give you more time for your torch (wich is indicated by the clock on the top left of the screen). There's also a green wine bottle hidden in the level, wich helps you recover some sanity (the red spiral) at the cost of making you a bit tipsy, see if you can find it!

I'll update the description as soon as possible to include those tips. 

Until then, cheers, and thanks for trying out Dimlands!
