Here's a remake of an old project of mine in PICO-8. Was a lot of fun to do!
Thanks to the amazing Gruber this version also have great music and sfx!
But all in all, CAN YOU GET OUT?
Share your thoughts!
So once you get out of there, it's just the one room and the game ends, or is there a "real" way to get out? (I'm not giving it away...just yet :) ) Because it'd be cool if this were a REAL "escape from the room" game where there were several more rooms and puzzles and not just the one.
Thanks for the feedback all!
Glad you appreciate the effort, it's all there to distract from the simple truth. :)
DR4IG, you just need to use the right key!
A larger, interconnected, set of rooms have crossed my mind - but it would be a totally different project.
I finished it soon because I remembered another version of the game (Ludum Dare maybe?). If you play a second time after finishing it, the door appears open, but the message of "locked" and the key droppings continue... The player can pass through the open door but the keys can't.
You might make it more challenging by the -method- not appearing unless you are holding the very first key ... or if that's too brutal, the -method- will not appear if you are holding any key at all.
You might even play with the cameras, saying for the first time, "This camera light turns red if I get too close."
Only do it twice as there are only 2 cameras.
Nothing like adding herrings to the dinner table. :)
Oh, and because I forgot earlier, Gold Star for you ...
