A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 39. The theme was 'running out of power'.

Olaf, the hero who defeated the demon lord's armies, is getting old. His strength is fading, his power running out. With no apparent end to the monstrous onslaughts, he must train a group of young heroes to replace him.

Passing the Torch is somewhere between an RPG and a deck-building game. You start with Olaf, an incredibly strong hero, and three complete rookies. After each round, the rookies will level-up, but Olaf will get weaker as he ages.

Sadly, I didn't have time to implement the end-boss I wanted, so the game just carries on until it breaks. If you can beat 12 encounters, you can consider yourself to have won the game.

NOTE: I realised after submission closed that the game didn't work properly at different resolutions. Menu elements ended up covering each other. I have uploaded a new version which fixes this, but it was after the Jam ended.
