Alone in the Gloom

by hulahulahest - 48 Hour Compo Entry

It is the dawn of the 20th century. A Cambridge scholar and explorer has led a team to the depths of the South American jungle to investigate a newly discovered temple complex claimed to predate the Olmec by several centuries, showing evidence of stonework thought beyond the capabilities of preclassical Mesoamerican masonry. As they begin to explore the strange temple, our professor accidentally falls into a pit and is separated from the group. All alone, he must find his way back to the surface, and maybe score some fascinating pieces of research data while he is at it...

Was there sound? If so, it did not play for me.

Dec 20, 2011 @ 7:29pm

Forgot to mention that it was a great game!

Fun! You just need to add some sound/music and you've got a great little game on your hands.

Works really well, would have been nice to see another game mechanic than push blocks, especially since the one item in hand thing could lead to some interesting gameplay.

All in all though, a fun little retro arpg puzzler with some nice graphics and a fun little story.

for us dum-dums who are stuck in the third room... any hint?

Dec 21, 2011 @ 10:16pm

i sink it be a bug ;)
ve no kann push ze blocks!

Dec 21, 2011 @ 10:38pm

ahhhhhhh i see... we can push the blocks but we must try longer. - should be a pushing animation or something so it doesnt look like we are just walking against a wall
end is cool ;)

Really great. Only poor thing about it was the lack of sound.

Dec 24, 2011 @ 11:52am

I fell in a ditch and died.

Awesome! Solid adventurer. Nice work.

Good ending :) I liked the graphics a lot but they look so familiar! Are they original for the compo? If so you have a great retro style!

Brorsan grät en tår över saknad musik. Looks great, of course. Plays smoothly. Kind of clever puzzles, without being nasty. Nice and cozy mood, but would definitely have been elevated by a hollow theme song. Spooky ending. I like it.

lack of music is a real shame

Great game, it had a very nice feeling. The musik/sounds are missing but i dont matter.

nice little game :-) good ending, really wanted some sounds though, music would have set the atmosphere just right
