DisillusionJohnBCreated in 72 hours for a recent game jam, Disillusion by True Valhalla is a short, somewhat abstract platform adventure that focuses heavily on atmosphere and exploration. You begin with a sword and a vague goal in the back of your mind: go to the end of the world and find the Holy Artifact. If you don't, your people won't survive. Sounds like motivation to us! You quickly head out into the hazy world, ready to tread down branching non-linear paths, defeat enemies both small and gargantuan, and pull off some tricky jumps with the greatest of ease.

Disillusion borrows a lot from the metroidvania genre, though don't expect fancy upgrades that let you bend the laws of physics or anything. The gameplay is squarely focused on allowing you to roam freely. There are usually multiple paths you can follow, each with its own set of dangers and rewards. It's a short adventure, but a very high quality one for a game created in such a short amount of time. The jumping mechanics might be a little too "floaty" for some players, but once you get the rhythm down, you'll settle in for a fine lunch break-sized game.

Will run on a netbook just fine but won't fit on the 1024x600 screen :*(. Great little indie game though!

Shame there's only one ending.

I thought there would be a different one if I didn't kill any enemies, but there wasn't. Sort of a 'holy artifact only reveals itself to selfless people. But I guess the 'made in 72 hours' didn't leave enough time for an alternate ending.

I don't even know where to begin in detailing the rediculously large number of ways in which I dislike this game. I think 'it lives up to its name' actually pretty much covers it. I genuinely felt cheated.

Simple, and mildly boring game, but the music was so beautiful.

Is there anywhere to download it? I could listen for hours.

So sorry for wasting your time John, I totally derped out.

I saved the download directly to me desktop (couldn't be bothered putting it into a folder and making a shortcut). It turns out, when the game fully opens, the song and a readme (with some small info, and the actual link to the song on Newgrounds) appear wherever the .exe file was (in my case, desktop).

:D
