Magnificent Microcosm of Mechanically Mutational Evolution!
This was my second Ludum Dare submission, made the first week I moved to college. The competition theme was 'evolution.' Based on DROD RPG: Tendry's Tale, this game mapped the RPG leveling mechanic to the evolution of a creature. The more the creature eats, the more powerful it becomes. The game's major failing was that it did not provide players with enough information to make meaningful decisions. It was created with Game Maker.
