Fate of Mankind is another Metroid-style platformer that was created by Leonardo Millan for the Ludum Dare 19 competition (which ended last week), featuring the usual maze exploration theme and upgrades that you will have to seek out and collect to unlock new abilities. There are plenty of checkpoint locations scattered all over the map, but you're still expected to beat the game in one sitting because progress isn't saved when you close the window.

Though Fate of Mankind comes highly recommended by many, I still find the level design to be rather drab because of the amount of backtracking that needs to be done if you're aiming to collect every single item in the maze. The game is still pretty good though, for an effort that was made in less than thirty-two hours. Windows only. (source: Bytejacker)
