32 bits in future?
A downloadable game for Windows
**REQUIRES A GAMEPAD**
Aube is a top-down zelda like adventure game, mixing contemplation and elegant / fencing-inspired fights, where waiting for the right opportunity is crucial in order to defeat your opponents.
It was made by our team of 6 students at Rubika Supinfogame, France, for our 2nd year project.
We tried to polish it as much as we could, however if you find yourself stuck because of some game-breaking bugs/exploits, you can use the 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 buttons to (re)load any of the game scenes.
The Team :
Pierre-Louis Mabire : Environment Art, Animations
Alexandre Villiers-Moriamé : Painting, Animations
Antoine Destailleurs : Character Design, Animations
Guilhem d'Humières : Game Design, Sound Design, Music, Programming
Nils Nerson : Game Design, Lead Programming
Nicolas Ceriani : Game Design, Technical Art, Programming

Wonderful work! There were some lockups after death, so I'm glad you included the ability to jump straight to different scenes, and there were a few things that could have been improved upon for readability's sake, like the color and shading of the text.
But beyond that, this was pretty well polished. The controls were responsive with really satisfying feedback on collision, the animations were smooth, the maps weren't too large/repetitive, and the most important thing, the combat, stood out in an intuitive way.
I knew what you were going for without having to read it and I appreciate that the few enemies presented here each felt a bit different. Good job and good luck out there in the gaming world!
Took a look at this for my Twitch stream. Hit a softlock towards what felt like the end, which was disappointing but I guess it saved me from spoiling the end for the viewers. :)
And I mean it, I'd love to see how the team could expand on something like this!
An interesting little game. We enjoyed it very much. The art is just great.
Here is a short video we made while playing:Keep up the good work!!!
Really cool little game. I love the vibe of a slower paced action game with good atmosphere
why cant I play this game without the controller? Somehow games from itch.io stopped recognising my controller, yet windows does.
I realy want to play this game, so so much.
I haven't played this game because I don't have a gamepad but it looks really fun. The art style reminds me of Hyper Light Drifter.
Why is this game not for windows on itch.io
This dude is the perferct babysitter. lol Awesome game! I hope you all become a fantastic company, although I did run into some glitches such as having the game freeze on me and all. But amazing game, ps please add save points!!
Hello! im a bit new to this downloading and extracting stuff. Could someone help me with it? I tried to extract it but ended up just making it a new openable file rather than something to launch. help?
When you extract a file, it's like pulling the contents out of its box. But alright here's a quick runthrough:
Open the downloaded file with whatever program you're using ( let's presume it's Winrar).
Once you've opened the file you'll see the folder or content the game is in.
If it's just a folder, then click and drag that folder to where you want it on your computer.
If it's the actual game's contents then you'll want to create a new folder somewhere and rename it. Then click on the first file, hold shift, and click the last file to select all of the file's contents, again drag all of them into the new folder you made and Viola! You successfully extracted your file.
uhhh.. wow im stupid.
im not good at this.. thank you for trying to helping me though!
It's alright! Take your time, it took me awhile when I was younger. Over time you get used to it though. Besides, you may be more of a visual learner like me, I'm pretty bad with text explanations xd
Is it okay if we play with the keypad ? Because it doesn't work with it...
Hi, unfortunately, the game is only playable with a gamepad for now :/
I loved to play this game. Will this game be more expanded or is it the complete version?
I mean, the version number is 0.6, so we can probably expect quite a bit more to come from this game.
Hi, glad you've enjoyed the experience ! Concerning the future of this particular project, it is unlikely that we will continue to work on it, as we have a lot of work at school, and most members of the team have an internship during holidays. However, this doesn't mean we won't create other games together... :)
This is great and gorgeous! What engine did you make this in?
I get error 404 when trying to download. Link broken?
Round two! I did encounter a few more bugs this time around, all of which were forgivable and not game breaking. The final boss was impressive visually and stylistically, but I took so many hits it felt a tiny bit broken. More than anything else the visual storytelling has me so curious as to the whole story of the baby, the robot and this world. Who was the boss? Why do we have a baby? Why is this robot caring for it? And why are we brining it to this temple? But for the short experience it was, it was a damn fun one and I'm only disappointed to see it go so soon. Well done, to everyone involved.
Heya! Played a bit of this on my channel.
Very VERY good for a student project! It reminds me a LOT to Hyper Light Drifter. Still, you have a great potential. If you keep on like this, you will make a remarkable games. Great job!
PD: I liked so much the little cameos xP
Thank you very much! Indeed HLD was a "little" reference for us, but we tried our best to create our own experience.
Happy to hear that you appreciated it :)
Overall, throughly inpressed! The pixel art is gorgeous, the music is awesome and the combat does so much with so little. Seriously, the slow and drawn out pace makes it really interesting and tense. I was thinking it might be a button spammer when it said it was inspired by Zelda, but it's so damn satisfying. Fantastic job everyone!
