What a fun little game, beautiful graphics, very reminiscent of the early Paper Mario games. Loved the water function as a way of keeping you engaged while exploring. It did take me a bit of time to understand where to go at the beginning due to not really understanding the "Follow the star" prompt from the villagers at the beginning, but that wasn't a detriment at all because of how much fun I was having just running around and exploring everything. All around great game, highly recommend to anyone looking to kill half an hour (or an hour if you're slow like me). I'll be watching what you guys come out with next!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
After the crash of your airship you are the only survivor in a mysterious desert, the air is dry, and the water is lacking.
Dry path is a 2D / 3D exploration third person platformer game.
The gourd at the top right of the screen represents the remaining water, if it is empty, you will pass out.
To recharge the water there are some sources on the map, but it is also possible to take the water in certain elements like cacti.
Languages : English / French
Playable with gamepad or keyboard / mouse.

i downloaded but it wont run
I loved exploring the map and finding fountains and NPCs when I was lost. Also finding multiple NPCs before even knowing what to do to proceed was quite nice because I felt like I was getting familiar with the world and knew what to do when I made my first trade. It was pretty immersive even for a 20 minutes game. Finally, having to be aware of the water level made the experience more threatening and thus fun. Big GG for the team !
wow the water goes down so quick
omg the art and the atmosphere is so cute! I love it!
Cool concept and nice visual effects and generally speaking art, but awful level design and practical execution.
well i might be an idiot but i played for like 20 mins and couldnt progress at all. i found all kinds of places and creatures but all of them just were there. even after watching the playthrough i was barely able to find the correct path and always reached there dried out.
im actually interested in how easy do you (as the dev) think finding the right path is.
i recently developed a (rather simple) metroid-venia style game and many players struggled finding the correct path while it seemed more than emphasized, so im curios as to what you might feel here.
what is literly what is it
It looks great but as soon as I get control of the character, the game starts to have extreme performance issues. My pc isn't the best, but I can still play games like Metro 2033 and Minecraft. And I would assume this game shouldn't be more demanding than those two.
the map is big and it was difficult to optimize, it's possible that it comes from some driver problem, but I can just advise you to try on another computer sorry :/
wouldn't creating load zones help the performance? i suppose you dont need the opposite part of the map loaded at all times, for example. You could divide the maps into regions and only load the ones that are either touching the region that you're currently in or that are within render distance. And in case it breaks any of your scripts, perhaps also the one that has the checkpoint. Really there is no good reason for not doing that.
this game is butiful i think you could make more games in the same stile and sell them on steam because of how amazing this is
I'm having a problem. so, when i start the game, it plays the opening cut scene, and then it stops on a black screen indefinitely. what do i do?
This is so cute!!! HUHUHU
It was interesting to listen to, thanks <3 Glad you liked the game, and well done for finishing it, it's not that easy Haha
The art style was really interesting!
I enjoyed this game so much! The art style was very beautiful and the music was so atmospheric. My favorite game so far: to play and to speedrun ;-)
(And small question: When do you start and end to measure the time of the game, so that I can submit the run to speedrun.com?)
Glad you liked the game so much and thank you for the video! The time begins after the introduction (at 0:32 in your video) and ends at the end of the credits after "Thank you for playing" (at 10:09 in your video)
love the style, bros
My video on the game, please do give it a view & a share.
Thank you for the video ! And sorry for the ground which is buggy, I don't really know where the problem comes from
the randomizer didn't miss this game's really awsome , nice intro, nice gameplay everything's perfect here
Thanks, glad you liked it ^^
I also got the game from the randomizer. And I love it 😁. I love how well the characters designed and how they contrast against the dry terrain.
i came from the randomizer lol
hope it's cool stuff
In love with that game, but saddly my curiosity lead me to get stuck in the middle of the gameplay many times and had to start it over :( a Save Game feature would be really nice.
Anywayzzz thanks for this masterpiece <3
This game reminds me HEAVILY of paper mario. It's a nice look, cool game.
I tried the game on laptop when I had no mouse available. I thnk it would be cool if you could control camera with arrows and interact with e key.
The Mac version says it can't be opened (using a Macbook Pro running Catalina). Can you verify that the file is correct?
I uploaded a new version which should correct the problem, tell me if it is not the case!
Cute game but incredibly difficult!
I've finished all your games so far but this may be the first I throw in the towel. Maybe I just need a glass of water...
Haha Thanks, I added a video of the full game on the page I think it can help you !
The game is not so difficult but find the first object (which unlock everything) can be hard
Really fun but I can't seem to find any item, only a rock
Loved the game! It was so mush fun to explore and meet all these characters :D
I love the 2.5D look of this game!
I like it a lot too! I don't know what this mix of 3D environments and 2D sprites is called (it reminds me of the first Doom), but I would like to know more about it. :) What engine is it made with? Is it Unity or something more specific?
I think the technical term is billboard, the game is made with Godot Engine, it's not made exclusively for making 2.5D games but it's quite easy to manage with
