After seven months of hard work, Alpha 3 is ready to play! Includes the first five levels of the game. Teaches you the basics of jumping, climbing, wall-running...
Lemma is an immersive first-person parkour game. Every parkour move has the potential to modify the environment. Surfaces pop in and out of existence at will!
After seven months of hard work, Alpha 3 is ready to play!
Some interesting statistics:
Incidentally, most of that is open source! If you're a developer, check it out on GitHub.
This version includes the first five maps. There are still some unfinished bits (the opening sequence is not yet textured) but it's come a long way in the past year.
Please play this because this release will report invaluable analytics back to me so I know what parts are frustrating. The most important thing the game needs right now is play-testing! Please let me know what you think as well, all the feedback from past releases has been incredibly useful and encouraging. You guys are awesome!
It's difficult to judge release dates, but I foresee at least another year and a half of development in order to make the game say everything I need to say. My goal is to save enough money in the next year to take some time off and dedicate myself full-time to finishing Lemma. For the first time, I have a vision for the whole game experience that is actually feasible for one person to complete. The engine is done and from here on out it's basically all level design.
Thanks for reading and playing. See you in a few alpha releases. :)

I hate the pervasive tendency in our society and especially in myself to "keep score" in life. It doesn't matter.

@kristruitt With dual-booting you do seem to end up pretty much picking one and sticking with it. Rebooting is way too much effort!

@kristruitt Dual-boot Windows and Ubuntu actually, and OSX at work. It's amazing how similar they all are now.

@kristruitt Unfortunately none of them work on Windows. :( Yeah, it's a weird setup. I just love the Apple keyboard too much to let it go!

Before you recommend a key remapper, I've tried those and none of them work on Windows 8 it seems.

I've got a bunch of new things to screenshot in Lemma but I switched to an Apple keyboard and can't printscreen anymore. Worth it though.
