Izel's Observatory is an underwater action-adventure game made in one month for the 2018 Indie Game Making Contest.

You are Izel, and your passion is studying the stars. But your discoveries threaten the power of the high priests. They destroy your research and sentence you to execution.

Escape from jail and take up your spear -- fight your way through underwater caverns, coral reefs, a nest of electric eels, a sunken ship and more. Collect upgrades and abilities to open new paths and find your way home.

  • Game can be played with a gamepad, keyboard, or keyboard and mouse.
  • This is a prototype version made in one month for the IGMC 2018.

Design, art, and programming by Jason Perry. Original music by Jake Milner.

And I got to finish the boss chase right after recording. Hope to see more of Izel, keep up the good dev work! :)


Absolutely loved this one! Would definetly love to see it win and be made into a full game. That being said, jesus, that final chase was BRUTAL. Took me at least 50 tries to finally get through it. But hey, at least the visuals are amazing, but I expected no less from ya~

Really fun! Feels like The Little Mermaid combined with Shovel Knight. I very much enjoyed it and would love to see more if you  continue with it. Super impressive for a month of work, great job.
