A downloadable game for Windows
REWIRE is a platformer game made in approximately 36 hours for GMTK game jam 2021. The theme for the jam was "joined together", which this project fits in two ways! First: you join and re-join mechanisms using your grappling hook. Second: the grappling hook joins together movement and environment interaction!
Controls are typical: AWSD to move (W jumps, S crouches), left click to fire grappling hook. Hold left click to be pulled towards the hook. If your hook hits a mechanism, you'll swap wires with it, allowing you to open and close gates and disable security cameras. The goal of each level is to get to the *beautiful* checkered flag at the other end. Don't ask me why this mysterious location has flags and such everywhere...
I was able to make 9 levels. The first few introduce grappling and various mechanisms, while the last two are "challenge levels" :) If I had a bit more time, I could've made more to explore the interesting interactions this system can provide, but it's almost 6am... such is life.
PS. The protagonist is small... but you will see that he has a beeg heart <3
