Overview

In Nongon you will explore a procedurally generated, abstract, low-poly world, searching for the 4 nongon shards to return to altars in the Cathedral. Jump, climb, and wallrun to traverse the environment and collect the nongon shards.

Features

  • Parkour-like traversal system
  • Low-poly art style
  • Atmospheric music
  • Supports Keyboard & Mouse and gamepad (Primarily Xbox 360)

Story

Unknown beings created a simulation of the Universe, known only as The Simlation. The Director was created to manage the operation of The Simulation. Eventually The Simulation grew too large and collapsed. As its final action The Director froze The Simulation and created you, The Divulgant, to traverse the Nongons, the now corrupt storage volumes containing data on The Simulation. Your sole purpose to collect data on how, and why, The Simulation collapsed.

Future Content and Plans

I plan to keep adding to the game for the foreseeable future. New content, bug fixes, and gameplay improvements are in the works. I'll try to keep posting updates at least once a month, hopefully more frequently though.

  • More platforms and variety within platform types
  • Lore - collect items that will reveal more information about the world of Nongon
  • Increased movement responsiveness and functionality
  • Working options screen with sensitivity, FOV, and other settings


System Requirements

It runs on my crappy Macbook, so just about any computer should be able to run it fine.

I just wanted to comment and say how much I enjoy this game and hope you continue to add content and keep this alive. It is a wonderful game and I just feel almost a compulsion to play a level or two every day.

Great concept. Not quite working for me in this early alpha state, but I look forward to seeing what it's like when completed. The main problem I had was that jumping was sluggish and unreliable. There's a noticeable delay between pressing the space bar and actually jumping, and sometimes the jump just never happens. I thought this might be a performance issue at first, but my frame rate was fine and turning graphics settings down didn't make a difference. It seemed like jumping would fail repeatedly at certain spots, and it wasn't always because of going over the edge before the jump kicked in. Unfortunately, sluggish jumping is a deal breaker for me when it comes to platforming. As I said, though, I realize this is an early alpha. Hopefully this will get ironed out in a future update.

I think i failed at playing this game.

Congrats on the game.

I really like the look and feel but the controls could be improved

here's my let's play https://youtu.be/SrdI_eaS7ec

Thanks for taking a look! Controls are definitely one of the main things I've been working on improving.

Absolutely loved playing this game even though the controls are a tad bit slippery.



This game was pretty fun to play. Had a blast. You can find my first look on it here. Keep up the great work.

Very impressed with your Alpha version. It sure was a challenge.

If you are scrolling through the comments trying to decide if this game is worth a download, it certainly is. The game has an amazing art style <3, a really smooth and floaty parkour feel to it. Even the color scheme is awesome! Definitely will be keeping an eye on the game as it develops!

-Thanks for the awesome game,

I cannot get past the main menu. :(

Me too

What platform are you attempting to play on?

Windows 10 (withe the most recent update). 64bits and it happens with either version 64 or 32)

windows 8 64 bit

I've posted a new update to the game. This may fix your issue. Can't say for sure since I am unable to replicate it.

The game has great visuals but the controls can be kinda slippery, its easy to walk off the edge and stuff, but the overall concept is great.

Wow! Really cool so far despite the alpha status. I'll be making sure to follow this game as it develops!


Thanks for the video! A lot of the bugs you've encountered are either taken care of already or I'm working on it currently. As for the wall running, I've bound it to a button, so no more wall running unless you want to. So tighter controls will be coming in the next update.

Glad to hear! Can't wait.

This is a cool and fun little platforming game. The simplified polygon graphics are pretty, the music is awesome, and the platforming was simply and easy to grasp. I love this particular art style and the way simple shapes are pleasing to look at. I love the music in this game and how it adapts as you progress with the game depending on the nongon's collected. I have played a lot of platformers and am generally not great at them, but this game combines randomly generated worlds with simple and east to control parkouring. All in all for an alpha this was a fun little game and I look forward to seeing how the game progresses from here. I did a quick video on my experience with the demo if anyone is interested.
