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.

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 !
