If you encounter a problem, please leave a bug report with as much info as possible, and check back for a fix! We will rate the games of everyone that leaves a message!

Windows:
Should run on XP SP3+. Requires .NET 4. Might possibly need OpenAL installed if it fails to run. I've included the OpenAL redist installer.


Linux:
Run GoingDown.sh

This has been tested on Linux Mint 14 (Cinnamon), you may need to install libSDL-mixer (sudo apt install libsdl-mixer1.2). Requires mono. If no joy, run from a terminal (mono GoingDown.exe) and copy/paste the output into a comment.

Mac:
Hopefully we'll have a Mac version for you soon, if I can persuade one of my mac-owning friends to do a build for me.

Tools used:
C#/XNA/Monogame
Spine
Tiled
Photoshop
Audition
Sound effects from Freesound

Enjoy!

Very difficult and still cannot complete it in time! I love that you just attack everyone just to get that sodding parachute!

wow, this game is really well crafted. The physics involved in the controls are really spot on and put you in the scene. (basically the immersion is amazing). maybe the screams help in that? haha idk, but either way Good Job!

I watched the gameplay video (I'm on a Mac, without my VMs handy at the moment) and it looks ridiculously amusing. +1 for the mac build!

Amusing, I don't usually like downloading the games but it was worth it.

Nice! We had a similar idea for our game, but it looks like you guys implemented it a lot better. Good job xD

4 stars only... because that game definitely needs a multiplayer game. God that game is so fun!

Oh man, a multiplayer version would be fantastic. Perhaps we should add a couple of cabin crew to make it 4 player? :)

I never laughed that much. You totally made my day. Make a multiplayer version of that! But then, it needs a bit more diversity in the gameplay: The different items should effect the others on different ways, for example.

Really fun idea, well done. :)

That was awesome!

Oh, nice interpretation! I liked the game. Finished for the first try tho. We definitely need multiplayer! Oh, and the "parachute" remains me to a bread :D

This was amazing and kinda disturbing at the same time :D

Like I read in another comment of the game, a bit disturbing. But it's a good interpretation of the theme.
I liked that you implemented a weapons system, a must in every beat'em up, so, good work :)

Haha, that was hillarious. Loads of fun, if only a bit simple, but hey, it's a great short game!

Amazing game.
Well done :D

This was fun while it lasted. Gets chaotic near the end and turns into button mashing, but it's pretty amusing nonetheless.

Really cool game, kinda short unless im missing something.. anyhow good job there! ;)

Incredibly well done entry. The mechanics are very simple and yet they play out very well. I actually had to defend of the parachute to see all the endings.

Admittedly the screaming noises without anyone actually having a mouth was a little disturbing... excellent take on the theme though. (Wish I'd thought of something like this ;) )

This is amazing, Art needs improving but the concept and execution was brilliant. I did get a security warning before playing though.

Great game! The whole premise made me laugh a fair bit. Managed to beat it on my first go! :)

Like the idea, the implementation is pretty good. Would be nice with some change in the gameplay at some point.

Fun game to play. I was never able to escape with the parachute but it was very entertaining :)

Amazing game! Really enjoyed playing this. The sounds are very good and pretty 'horror bringing' Haha. Very scary game in a way, really made me sort of uncomfortable, the thought of being in a airplane crash is horrible. Anyway, very solid game, cute and polished graphics, GREAT take on the theme! Keep up the good work!

This is my favorite. Absolutely hilarious.

Hilarious. Loved the knocked out people sliding up and down the plane, and the various improvised weapons. Bonus points for the random outfits / characters so it's a different pilot each time. :D

I just find this game silly in all the right ways. Thanks for making it, man!

Well that just happened! :D So much fun, I can't believe how enjoyable it is to beat everyone down to escape an inevitable death. Just crazy! One of the few games I've played more than once. :) Really great job.

This is great, guys! I don't like saying like this, but it's the best game I found so far. All games are about the same thing (thematically), but in this one, it kinda makes sense. hehe Beautiful art. Very fun game that I think it could make it to mobile (adding more content, of course). It's kinda hard, but it's possible. I loved it!

Brilliant. I have nothing else to add.

I was making my way to the end over half the length of the plane just punching people until someone stabbed me. I'm never getting out of there alive.

Nice but quite difficult to make it to the far end. At least I got to see it but never survived the mayhem. It would have been interesting to have some different types of weapons maybe or a dash or something to give more flexibility to the fighting.

Such a good experience to play! Didn't like too much the sounds but the global sensation is great

One of the best uses of the theme I've seen - really entertaining. Made it out twice - once without the 'chute (must have lost it right before the door opened?), and the second time got safely to the ground :)

Oh my god, this was awesome! I can't find the words how this game is awesome! Punching crowd is awesome, especially at the end is so brilliant! This should be multiplayer!
