Extremely limited (hacked-together) work in progress:
Explore a room!
Listen to some (unfinished) music!
Feast your eyes on a colour! (two, if you count black)
(the piano was playable - two chords - but i've switched it off so the music plays through)
Hi @stefstef, I don't know if you're around anymore, but I found your soundtrack for this on Bandcamp (it's great! PICO-8 plus extra editing?) which led to your full game on itch (also great!), it looks like you never posted the finished game on this BBS.
Anyway, nice job, a fun exploration/puzzle game and the 1-bit orange graphics are perfect, I thought every sprite was crafted as clearly as it could be, given 1 color and 8x8 pixels! Kid-friendly, too.
@touk Oh thank you! My coding is super shonky so I was too embarrassed to post the cart on here. Had a great time making it though! I was trying to recreate the vibe of early DOS games I loved back in the day. The soundtrack was Pico-8 tracking with extra delays and reverbs and filters yeah, thanks for listening! And playing. Did you escape???
We escaped! Definitely DOS vibes. It took two days (we were playing with a 3-year-old, not exactly speedrunning) but we got out with 2 diamonds. Didn't find a third. Can some action be done with the skull???
The music is great. I was slightly disappointed to realize it was not all done within P8! I'm still new to P8 and I first thought "wow, I really gotta see how they composed this!" :)
UPDATE: FULLY PLAYABLE GAME IS POSTED ON ITCH.IO, NOT HERE. THIS CODE IS INCOMPLETE. A LITTLE CONFUSING AS AUTHOR DID NOT POST ITS FINAL LOCATION.
You can find it HERE:
If you want to try this demo where you can reach the fish and get past the cat, I posted that below. But be aware once again this is only the start to the game.
The final game is found on itch.io and has MANY rooms, upstairs, downstairs, attic, cellar, outside garden, multiple bedrooms, and many puzzles to solve with cool animating secret passages.
Giving a star here for the superb and creepy music.
