A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

About the game

Hang The Gods is a metroidvania set in ancient Japan where the Gods grew jealous of what man has created, so they decided to attack and destroy everything.

A hundred years have passed and corruption has consumed the lands...

Who will restore the balance?

Please note the following:
  • This is a Prototype for the character movement, this is a very early prototype so there might be a few bugs.
  • Nothing is set in stone an might change in the future
  • The controls are mapped to weird buttons, this is just for testing purposes and will be mapped properly at a later stage.
  • This is not in any shape or form a representation of what the game will look like, at the moment everything is basic and empty because i am still working on getting the controls just right.

Hope you enjoy!!

Install instructions

This should just be a download and play.
However, on Mac it will give you and error that says the file is not from a know developer, thats just because i have not paid the $100 a year for the developer licence.
If mac users still want to try the game out:

  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Go to the Security & Privacy tab.
  3. Click on the lock and enter your password so you can make changes.
  4. Change the setting for 'Allow apps downloaded from' to 'App Store and identified developers' from just App Store.
  5. Go to Security & Privacy and select the General tab.
  6. Click on 'Open Anyway'.
  7. You'll be asked one more time if you're sure, but clicking Open will run the app.

Well, the story here is really what caught my eye... can't really say much about the gameplay just yet! First off, why are the enemies hot dogs? Did the gods corrupt the land with hot dogs? (I'm guessing they're just placeholders?) Anyways, I like the jump going up; I really felt like I could decide what height I jump at. However, the jumps were slightly floaty imo... Regarding the watermark, I think it should be removed, as it makes the game seem a little lower quality. Yes, the xbox 1 controls work.what are the "health regeneration" and "charge?" I wasn't able to use those.

Hi Canted!

Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it.

So all the visuals are still just placeholder, I will be doing everything from scratch when i get to that point. I am trying to get the player controller just right and play around with some more features before going to crazy with visuals.

So for health regen on xbox it is supposed to be "Hold B" but it only works while grounded.
For charge attacks, it will be "Hold X"

I will get myself an Xbox controller and test it.
