Description
Release date: 2015
Withstand: Apothoesis
is a platform puzzle game with some combat heavy sections and minor adventure and metroidvania elements. Konoci Mineta is an orphan living in a slightly Steampunk-inspired world, populated by honorable shapeshifters, obnoxious elves, and the occasional insane dictator. Use her wind magic as she embarks on an epic quest to get ingredients for a smoothie.

FAQ
How much will it cost?
That is undecided at the moment, but it will likely be 10 USD or less.

How much gameplay is there?
There is between three and five hours of gameplay, counting combat sections, puzzle areas, and exploring.

What will be different from the current release?
Certain sequences will be tightened up, areas extended, and additional detailing and artwork cleanup performed. A less obstrusive game "achievement" system will be added. There will also be more explosions.

Will you still provide the source?
Yes, the Steam release will still include with the release either the Game Maker project file or an archive available for free download.

Will you update the engine at all?
Withstand will be updated from Game Maker 8.0 to Game Maker 8.1. I was originally considering Game Maker Studio, but there is a massive amount of work that needs to make that happen. I do have it somewhat working in Studio, but there's a lot of items to attend to for Withstand to be 100% working. I would rather spend more time on polishing and new content for you than struggle with a clunky engine.

You're selling it, but still providing the source?
Yes. As dirty as it is, I'd like to show how the game was put together for other's reference.

Will you release for Mac/Linux?
I will look into porting the libraries being used, but most likely no.

Does it have Xbox controller support without additional setup?
Yes.

Why is the game such low resolution?
If the game was any higher resolution, it would never be finished.

Will you add a 16:9 resolution mode?
I will not add it unless it is repeatedly requested. Widening the screen breaks several areas. Since I don't like giving myself more work, I will not add 16:9 mode of my own accord.

Will I be able to make a smoothie in this version?
Yes.
