A downloadable game for Windows

Originally created in late 2014/early 2015.

A one-button level-based runner! Collect all your chosen student's items in just 8 levels set around and in the University of the Witswatersrand's campus!

Commissioned by the University of the Witswatersrand while we were in 3rd year. Meant to act as a way to make new students excited about the University. Lowest common denominator of skill needed to be able to play - hence the oversimplicity.

Dik dik van Dik goes to college and is a playable character seemingly, but despite the joke. It is a very respectable platformer where clouds are being more problematic, but the running style makes for an easy learning curve despite all the obstacles.

Which engine you're used in development? :)


We used Gamemaker: Studio :)
