Escape the Wolf: OHR

by James Paige - 48 Hour Competition Entry



...but if you run too long, you get tired.

And where is that dang cabin anyway? This forest is HUGE!


Created with the OHRRPGCE (although I ended up scripting almost everything)

For the Linux OHRRPGCE player, go here:
Just use the escapewolf.rpg data file from either the Windows or the Mac zip file.

(although escapewolf.exe works in wine if you are lazy)

Game data is escapewolf.rpg
Game scripts are escapewolf.hss

Quite well-done, and I loved the soundtrack. "dun-dundundun-duhduhuh-dundun-dedede..." You could have left a couple hints as to where the cabin was, otherwise it's essentially randonmly rompng about. Really, really, cute, though.

Some idea of where to go would have been nice. I liked the graphical style and the mood setting music. Good job!

Coll tune there. Would be nice with some indication to where you're supposed to go.

I love the music! The visuals are great as well, and I really liked the way she(?) moved around the trees instead of just stopping. Very well done.

I love how it subtely changes into action-music :-)

I loved the good ending. How the wolf tries to get red out of the house is priceless.

Very nicely done, the soundtrack is surprisingly good. Graphics are cute, but trees do get in the way, though moving around trees is nicely done.

Very good mood, the ambience, the music fits. The wolf comming does create a sense of urgency :).Especially when you're in a thick part of the woods and can hardly see yourself.

I never understood how to "escape" though. I tried going in 1 direction for a long time.. then I tried another direction, niether seemed to get me anywhere. It seemed neverending.

Care to let us in how you actually get out? :)

Yes, Ippa, I promise it is possible to escape. With luck and skill you can even do it in under 1 minute on hard mode. Here are some hints:


The cabin location is random, but you will never find it by running just one direction in a straight line from your starting point.

Your footprints (and the footprints of the wolf) are permanent, so you can use them to eliminate areas you have already explored.

The forest is not endless, it wraps.
