The Deep

by Cryptoporticus - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You've just woken up, alone, in a dark cavern deep underground. You must attempt to navigate your way out of the caves whilst disarming traps and avoiding the creatures that live within.

Controls:
Press Z whilst standing near traps and switches to interact with them.

Use the arrow keys to move.

Press Esc to quit.

If the music starts to get on your nerves, press M to mute it.

Switch to full screen with F4.

When lockpicking, use the 1-3 buttons to select a pin and then press the space bar to nudge the pins up, you can also click on the pins to nudge them.

There was a lot of actual gameplay content in here - a Lights Out minigame, a cut-the-wires minigame, a lockpick minigame, and the exploration/enemy avoidance game. Unfortunately, none of them were very fun to me. What could have helped are a reset button on the lights-out game and some checkpoints.

DANG THIS IS HARD! Your post mortem is very honest and insightful. Congrats on your first Ludum Dare!

Controls were a little slow and I wasn't a big fan of resetting at the start of the level when I died - but other than that, seemed alright :) Good job with Ludum Dare!

Hard like a hell! :D You should create some checkpoints ;)

The gameplay is really good. I like the system of minigames that you created(especially lockpicking :D).Audio in background is simple but not bad at all. It fits the theme. ;)

Nice game. There is a lot here. Checkpoints would have been useful though.
