A Date With Destiny is a graphical narrative where the player must earn tickets in order to save someone's life. The player takes the role of the husband who goes on a date with his wife at the town's carnival. Everything seems to go well, and in the beginning, the minigames, which are the carnival games, seem normal, but after a certain point in the game, an evil wizard who was posing as the carnival's fortune teller kidnaps the player's wife. In order to get her back, the player must play minigames to obtain a certain amount of tickets within a given time. The appearance of the carnival changes to have an evil and eerie look. For instance, the staff have been replaced with the wizard's henchmen. The minigames look creepier as well. There are multiple endings. One is where the player gets enough tickets, dies in a minigame, and when the player does not get enough tickets in time. The minigames are based on actual carnival games like the duck shooting gallery and plinko. The assets are credited in the game. I made this game using GameMaker for my CMPM 80K class, also known as Foundations of Game Design. This was my third time using GameMaker.
I uploaded the .gmx file here, but you need Steam to open it (I think).
These are digital games I made. You can scroll down to see the games or you can go to List of Games and click on a game to be taken to that specific game.
