What is Epheremal?

Epheremal is a game developed by Team Prestige Worldwide for the 48 hour game making contest pixel jam (www.pxljm.com). It is a two dimensional side scrolling platformer reminiscent of classic platformers like mario or more recently super meat boy.

The twist (and central theme to pxljm 2012) is that it is 'not what it seems'. By pressing either the left shift key or 'b' button (on xbox), you can toggle the state of the world. This affects both the behaviours and interactions of all the tiles and characters within the level.

The game was developed entirely in C#, using the XNA games for windows library to handle user input and audio-visual processing.
