Description

About the game

Exodus is a 2D Plateform/Exploration (metroidvania) game for Windows, with oldschool gameplay mechanics, and HD native resolution (1920*1200). Musics are made by Yann Van Der Cruyssen (Saira, Block That Matter).

You can choose between a male character, Zoulux, or his girlfriend, Ly'sax, depending on your favorite alien (or gender). The choosen character will get out of his capsule, in a wild and a somewhat hostile environment. Soon enough, a leader of Exodus will contact you from his capsule, asking you to help Exodus' inhabitants. And you'll be on your way...

Main Features:

  • Metroidvania mechanics : Platformer control ( jump, crouch, sneaking, attack, etc... ), and in our case a big part for exploration.
  • Unique visual style.
  • Skills evolution with skill-trees, using evolution points ( Vital energy in the game ) that can be found in the environment or by killing monsters.
  • Collected evolution points are lost on death ( but they can be recovered if you can reach them without dying again ), but activated mechanism are not reseted on death.

How did TexturePacker help you with your development?

We used Texture Packer to optimise our huge spritesheets for Exodus !

Characters, monsters and Bosses animations were created with Maya, and we used rendered images to create smooth animations (30 fps) for our 2D game Exodus.

Without a great tool like Texture Packer, we were not able to manage such big data ^^

What are your favorite TexturePacker features?

Trim and Rotation are very helpfull to optimise our big frame lists. Data type and Auto-SD changed our life since Exodus can be played in 1080p HD resolution, or SD (1280*768) for low RAM computers.

Any tips and tricks you want to share with the community?

Just buy Texture Packer ! It does a relly good job for huge spritesheet and have cool optimisation features !

And it run fast as well, a real great tool !
