I think it's necessary to show your character's shadow directly under them in a 3D platformer, otherwise it's super hard to predict where they'll land when jumping. Good graphics and music, though! :)
No Excavation Needed (Ludum Dare #36)
A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
A game about finding things in the sand, or archaeology, or 3D platforming. Short but sweet. Play as the enthusiastic Dr Turquoise in a quest for the highest button... If you have one, play with gamepad! I didn't have time to fine tune the controls and level design but with a gamepad the controls are ok.
Created with Unity 5. Music created in Ableton Live and sound effects made with Sfxr.
