Gearend is a small 2D non-linear action-platforming exploration game.


You take control of a small robot named Epsilon-98, or "Eps", as you explore an abandoned robotics research facility. Having been awoken by external forces, Eps sets out to find out just who has awakened him, and determine what has happened to the facility and its inhabitants. 

Throughout the game, you find capsules, containing spare robot parts. These spare parts upgrade your capabilities, enabling you to slash, dash, shoot, block, fly, and more as you explore the dilapidated remains of an advanced robotics research facility. You also will also find other friendly robots who may help you in your journey.

Taking classic games as the base, Gearend sports an updated look, feel, and sound.

Quick Q-and-A time!

Q: Why is the game so large (~200mb)?

A: The game runs on Java, so I'm including the runtime environment (~150 mb) for ease of use. If you have Java 8 installed, though, you can just download the crossplatform build (which is only ~50 mb). The Itch app will rather nicely run the jar file using your local JRE, so choose that build if you have Java.

Q: Is the game particularly well optimized?

A: It's so-so, currently. There's still some things that could be improved upon performance-wise (which I'll be looking into soon). OSX in particular might not run very well (but that might be more-so due to outdated versions of OpenGL). 

So if you're worried about the game running well on your machine, check out the demo first. And if you're on Mac and it doesn't run well... Try Linux! (I'm kidding. Mostly.)

Q: I prefer Steam to itch!

A: Not a question! But that's OK. Those who purchase the game here will also get a Steam copy of the game when it launches on Steam in the very near future.
