Twisted Tower chapter 1 Early Alpha
This is an early alpha release of Twisted Tower chapter 1. Originally started in 2010, the game hasn't been in active development for several months now, so I've decided to release it in its current form for the time being. I haven't decided the project's future as of yet, so feedback and ideas are still welcome.
What is Twisted Tower?
Twisted Tower is a platformer game with heavy emphasis on dungeon crawling and RPG features. The levels (known as floors) are randomly generated, and players advance floor by floor, killing enemies, breaking open containers, looting chests, leveling up their character and finding better equipment. Currently there are 30 floors worth to explore inside the Twisted Tower, and couple of low-level areas and a village outside the tower.
(There's little to no story yet, so your focus should be on exploring the Twisted Tower. Although Twisted Tower continues from where Twisted Fates, a game on iPhone/iPad ended, no knowledge of that game is needed to enjoy Twisted Tower.)
The fantasy world of Evan. Region known as Skies of Evan, a mass of floating islands high above Evan. You control Arina, a girl from a half-feline race known as the Kii. An ancient tower nearby has ominously begun to transform. Arina heads to investigate.
You can control either with a keyboard or a gamepad/joystick. (Gamepad is highly recommended)
You can customize the keys yourself in the Options screen at the main menu of the game. The default controls for 'joystick' should work for an Xbox360 gamepad. There's an option for Analog Aiming for gamepads as well, but it's experimental, so use at your own discretion.
(Known Issue: After switching from keyboard to joystick, some buttons may not work until you've entered the game. Just one of the many bugs left to be sorted out)

* Unzip its contents to any directory you want

Twisted Tower is a Twisted Team game, based on the 'Twisted' universe by Leuvsion and HitmanN.
This version of the game is an ALPHA build, meaning that it's absolutely not finished, may suffer performance issues, is missing many features, and you will certainly come across some bugs during gameplay. While feedback of any kind is welcome, please do take these facts into consideration.
Old trailer from last year
(Still recent enough to get the idea across)
Just a shame development has been put on hold.
Played through to what I assume is the end (it restarted from Level 1). I'm impressed with how much content you've included actually - quite a few hours worth already. Had a couple of goes and found it much easier as a Mage - once I got the lightning zapper wand thingy, it was all over Comment edited by Sketchy on 9/13/2013
Hey, man, why aren't you making more noise with this? I think a lot of people would really like this, but have no idea it exists. Post it on your twitter account, Facebook page, etc.
Also, do the #screenshotsaturday thing. I got a nice bit of exposure just from uploading a screenshot and tagging it. I'm sure you'll get some fans. You owe it to yourself to make the least bit of marketing efforts.
