Overview

Created for Ludum Dare 38, Platform Styx is a lo-fi, atmospheric exploration game created in Unity. The game was conceptualised and developed within 72 hours by Monea Games, an indie dev team of 4 people (including myself), with the help of a 3D modeller friend. 
 

The theme for Ludum Dare 38 was "A Small World", so our intent was to create a game that featured a variety of "small worlds" that the player would traverse through. This led to the concept of train carriages representing different worlds, and thus the creation of Platform Styx. 

Platform Styx was well received by the Ludum Dare community and was ranked #19th in the mood category.
