First person mini-metroidvania with fireballs, jetpack and such. About life in a box. There are secrets to find.
Made for Ludum Dare #23; Theme: "Tiny World".
With extremely minimalistic gameplay, and pretty much everything else, Box Life relies on the simply feeling of exploration and discovery. The world of Box Life is very small and fit entirely in one giant box, filled with platforms, destructible blocks, upgrades, hidden chambers, and secrets. The point of the game is to find a series of secrets, one group that is necessary to win the game and another, harder to find, group that is purely for completionists and people who want to extend the game's length. It is a fantastic, abstract, minimalist exploration game, and well worth playing.
