This is my compo for the Ludum Dare 23 (theme: Tiny World).

Day 4380 of your prison term. 12 years. And many more to come.

But something strange is happening today… A mysterious puzzle seems to unfold in your cell.

Cool features:

  • super-old-school gameplay!
  • 256+ colors scenes! Woot!
  • many many texts to read and lots of details!
  • an ingame help system, in case you are really stuck!

I tried to make a “SCUMM-VM”-like for this Ludum Dare to finally discover the huge amount of work needed to do that properly…

I didn’t have much time for the sounds, I spent most of my weekend on the engine and on the  texts. I’m french, so I had to check the dictionary every 10 seconds…

Here is my timelapse :

    Je savais que tu as participé au LD mais sans plus et je viens de découvrir ce jeu par hasard en visitant le blog pour la 1er fois et honnêtement..

    Très bon jeu on regrette même qu’il n’y a pas de suites ;D

    PS : Au début je me suis crû dans un Mini-Hordes ;)
