The Walled Garden is a platformer RPG set in a surrealistic Garden of Eden with procedurally generated trees which grow from a destructible environment which subdivides as it is destroyed.

Inspiration for TWG stems from video games such as; Super Mario Bros, Flashback, N+, Zelda & Super Metroid. With artwork inspired by Hayao Miyazaki, Zdzislaw Beksinski, Hieronymus Bosch, Salvidor Dali and many Esoteric Illustrations.

The game assimilates esoteric symbolism to video-game iconography via the appropriation of existing source materials. Essentially TWG is a interactive representation of the pictogram depicted on each tarot card.

There are particular animals in Eden that don't mind Atom riding on their back.
At the moment the current existing mounts are; Horse, Rooster, Swordfish

I'm planning to add a Gryphon as well, if you can think of any more mounts let me know.

Horse: Left and right motion (basic mount)
The original mount ; Will have to re-designed because the other two mounts are more interesting.
And the Rooster kind of makes the Horse obsolete.

Rooster: Nimble jumper with a secondary flutter jump

Swordfish: Water based mount, stabs enemies, jumps out of water, slides across the ground (can't change direction out of water)

Gryphon (WIP) : Aerial mount, flying - either Flappybird style or Hovering like a Shmup.

Glad you like how it looks, no worries about donations.
Have you had a chance to try out the demo that is on indieDB already?

It's pretty old to the new demo that will be coming out very soon.

@BearyBarrington Background sketches and larger sprite animations are done with a tablet. Medium sprites and refinements are all mouse work.
