Southward Lies Escape

by PaulSB - 48 Hour Competition Entry

You are trapped at the North end of a mysterious complex of connected rooms. Everywhere are mindless savages with a taste for violence and loot. You have only one last hope: Southward lies escape.

Coded with Flixel, arted with GIMP, sounded with bfxr + a mic, musicked with FL Studio and Kontakt.

Controls
Arrow keys: Movement
Space: Interact with doors and loot
Escape: Proceed from menu screens
M: Mute/Unmute

(There was an element of UK riot inspiration in the initial concept, but I lost my shot at high brow when I started barking like a dog into a microphone.)

Gets a little repetitive; more variety and a minimap would have been awesome.

It is a clear goal and really easy if you are into games where you avoid obstacles.

Most people are telling me it's too hard so that's good to hear :)

Very cool atmosphere. The music really added to the creepiness. The pitch black rooms were especially good :p

I enjoyed the audio and graphics style, gave a scary atmosphere. Thee rooms looked too similar for me to go and visit all of them.

This game has a great dark atmosphere, but is a little too repetitive. I didn't really feel like I was progressing until I suddenly won. It's still pretty nice, with great graphical style.

The background music is awesome! I would like to have a minimap.

Has a very nice and creepy atmosphere. Although when I played it I didn't know it I was progressing or not. Throughout my playthrough I was asking myself if I should just stop playing as there were no clear indication if I was doing good or not.

Very cool graphics and sound. The whole experience was vaguely upsetting, which is to say I enjoyed it greatly :)

I like the asthetics, they're quite unique.

Also interesting how the enemies ile onto you after some time :-)
