Wormwood Studios Presents



Until I Have You, is a story-driven, fast-paced, retro-aesthetic platformer, engulfed in a Cyberpunk setting.

Driving you to the edge of your seat as you run n' gun through enemies, the game recounts a thrilling story of regret, love and corruption, in a city that's gone haywire and just doesn't give a damn.

This is the story of the ARTIST, a talented assassin, who has worked many dirty jobs in a long and successful career. Finally heeding the pleadings of his wife, he has decided it's time to quit this ugly business and live a simple and peaceful life. However the ARTIST's clients know he is irreplaceable, and are unwilling to allow the craftsman to hangup his tool belt. They send him this message by kidnapping his wife, Emily, and make it clear, retirement is not an option! The ARTIST is determined to get his wife back, and prepares himself for one last assignment. He understands to be successful he needs to go all out, and he procures a rare exoskeleton suit. Although this provides him with additional powers, it also can cause hallucinations and affect his judgment.

If you could save someone, how much of yourself would you be willing to sacrifice?





FEATURES:
  • 12 Chapters of immersive story-telling
  • Beautifully pixelated environments
  • Fast paced action
  • Over 60 unique Enemies and 12 Boss Fights.
  • Rich and Diverse Settings (both in gameplay mechanisms and visuals)
  • Fully Voiced Dialogues
  • Gritty Cyberpunk Atmosphere
  • Keyboard & Controller Support

TEAM:
 
James Spanos - Programming, Music, Design
 
"I've worked on several games most famously known for The Cat Lady, where I coded the interface, Downfall, where I fixed the interface, and Primordia, where I coded the entire game, plus the interface. I've been a huge fan of games such as Megaman, Strider and always wanted to built a platformer that deviates from the norm and gives the ability to the player to perform extraordinary stunts and tricks, if he masters the controls, and that it should feel limitless, as if he's bending the world to accommodate his skill. That is why I've started working on this with Andrea Ferrara. We share our passion for challenging games, and old school graphics."

Andrea Ferrara - Graphics, Design

"Before becoming an active member of the Adventure Game Studio community I used to work alone on games; writing, programming and making the art. I worked on a couple of indie adventure games released as freeware that became quite well known in the net, such as “Donald Dowell and the Ghost of Barker Manor”. When a couple of months ago James showed me a very early WIP of “Until I Have You” (made with placeholder graphics), I instantly realized the huge potential of that game and told James "you just have to let me make the graphics for this!".

GIVEAWAY (Ends Dec 20th).

Since it's the holidays, and Limpingfish is playing Secret Santa, I thought to myself, there's no chance I can outdo that, but still, one can try.

We'll give away 2 Steam keys.

So how do you win one?

Wow guys! YOU DID IT!!!

The fact that you completed such a HUGE project in such a relatively short time is incredible, but also that you completed it in AGS without switching to an engine more suited for this kind of gameplay AND still released a professional-grade platformer!

Best of luck with the release and I hope you garner the massive fanbase you deserve!

I got it and I started playing right away. It's quite challenging, requiring quick reflexes and agile digits -- but, quite surprisingly, I don't totally suck at it! I breezed through most of the initial levels, with no kills and no deaths on some of them. But then I died a hundred times on one level -- mostly because of being either too slow (the enemies will shoot you on sight if you stop for a second) or too fast (can't count the times I dashed through the whole level and missed the last moving platform by a milimeter, or bounced right off of it too soon and missed the ledge leading to the exit door). Now I'm stuck fighting the first boss -- and again, most of the time I'm defeated by my impatience and bad timing.

But it's super fun so far. If you liked Hotline Miami, especially for the the frantic, non-stop action, you'll feel right at home.

I've been playing the hell out of the game -- clocking in at 14 hours as of this moment. I'm not usually into this kind of games, butter fingers and all -- but damn, it is FUN! The masochistic, "AAAARGH, I'M GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS" kinda fun, but the joy derived from finishing a level is all the greater. It feels a lot like "Hotline Miami" in that sense (and actually shares a few motifs with it).

But the best part is the sheer velocity. Some levels you just run and jump and slash until you stop thinking about it and let instincts and muscle memory do the work. Here's a small sample of me playing (and failing beautifully) in one of the most insane levels so far (so I can only imagine the madness that's still ahead of me)

Awesomesauce dude!  I'm going to Steam and not stopping UNTIL I HAVE THIS!

Yeah the hyperkinetic action is almost too much, but the lactic acid in my fingers brings me right back to Saturday morning sleepovers at friends with the piece of crap CRT, the SNES and mom making bacon and eggs the next morning after beating the f*** out of Megaman X2.

Crushed it!

I agree. Sadly most gamers don't understand the effort behind making platformer games with AGS. I don't want to sound unfair to UIHY, but if another engine suited for this genre of games was used, the game won't take much time and effort in coding the mechanics as it took using AGS. As an AGSer, this blows my mind specially that when playing UIHY I still have doubts its created with AGS  8-0

Maybe they prefered to use AGS because there is no license fee? I don't recall any other engine being free.

True that...also it's the engine they were most familiar with I believe. Creating it on a different engine may have involved learning that engine all over again, which can take a very long time.

I recently purchased this game and I must say that apart from everything which look and sound so beautiful it has the graphics and animations which are really mind blowing. I am really enjoying playing this game and I strongly raccomand it!

Spoiler: ShowHide

Today while I was playing I have got this message and I actually dont know what I have done or if this has been reported before:

@Vincent, above kinds of errors with a red round X icon is an indication of a serious bug inside the engine, not the game (script) itself.

Did this error happen once or it keeps happening at certain point in game? If it keeps happening, have you got a save around that location?
(although the engine version 3.3.4 is rather old now)

I have tried later to do exactly what I have done the other day and I am able to replicate it for some reason. It look a bit strange because it seems to be happening only when the player is going to die. What I do is to put the game in the taskbar and when I return to the game I get the error message. It happened to me to put the game in the taskbar while playing the game several times but I never got this error before. Indeed it seems to be happening only when the player is going to die.
