Freedom

by orangepascal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I decided to make a prequel to my LD#23 entry Predicament, the gameplay is the same, but with a bigger focus on minimalistic.

You find your self in a room, and your goal is to find a way out.. just like in Predicament there really IS a way out (some people still believe the previous game had no exit !)

Think outside of the box, work with the minimal tools available, and escape your boring room.

All done in HTML5, most browsers should be running it without problems, worst case just use Chrome!

Well, I found the door, but nothing else seemed to be possible. Is it bugged?

Just when that textbubble sound was beginning to drive me crazy, the phone appeared out of nowhere xD
Funny game, but it's kind of unfair to just have your players wait around, don't you think?

play it again, it has nothing to do with waiting

Very cool! I got out :)

Lol, I found the way out, this is pretty cool :).

Nice art as usual. Poor kitty.

Yeah, it's kinda unfair to have wait for next clue :)

(Spoil free) Still can't figure out the correlation between my actions and one of the steps. Overall a pretty interesting game. Good art, fitting sound, and a cool concept.

LoL. I thought it was bugged, but was not! humorous and neat!

It's fun to figure out, well done.

Great kind of game for a 48hr compo... I don't know where the phone comes from...

JonRB says ...

It's certainly minimal. I used to be obsessed with these kinds of puzzles. The character's brow probably closely resembled my own as I tried to figure out what caused what in the game. The cat is a strange turn of events.

very nice!!!

That's the weirdest escape game I ever played. I had to resort to mashing the keyboard constantly while walking back and forth. The text bubble idea was pretty good though, but at times it was quite confusing. STUPID ... FRIDGE DOOR ... IS BROKEN STUPID ...... BORING!

sparkleswirl says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:41am

Can I have a hint on what to do after the door shows up?

Ludipe says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:44am

Very nice, too short but very nice. The cat is the key to everything O.O

Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:50am

Nice experience but it was kind of hard to figure out what was going on at first, I moved once and pressed X.

zapaman says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:54am

I found my freedom! Also the cat, is ADORABLE!

jhrrsn says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:29am

One of our favourites for sure.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:17am

Haha, nice one! I found the exit.
At first I thought it's impossible... Yet by doing random stuffs (you guys will know this as you'll play)... It's possible. And the texts I saw are really funny from flashing at the right time.

I think it is the number of jumps, as it kept saying 'boring'. Also, you don't leave through the door. After you leave, and it says you find your freedom, is their an end? or is that it? I could still jump, wasn't sure if that was intended or not. Fun little game though.

Really short, but adorable!

d_durham says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:52am

Ha, I figured it out eventually. Really great job with the presentation and a nice little game play gimmick. Well done.

I got a bit stuck, but very interesting art and smooth gameplay!

At first i was "nooo it's nice but buggy!" then i understood. It's cool :)

sparkleswirl says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:00pm

Okay, I figured it out. This was amazing. I really like it. =)

Very nice :). I just wish the background wasn’t white.

McFunkypants says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:19pm

Great work... nice art... good sounds... but I gave up quickly after nothing seemed to happen. After reading the comments, it sounds like I just had to wait around for something? Patience and gamers do not go hand-in-hand. =)

orangepascal says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:34pm

no it has nothing to do with waiting.. it's to soon to spoil the solution here, so if people can't solve it just ask on twitter ! *spoilhint* it's not a boRING game!

spilth says ...

Nice art and interesting concept. Might be better with different sounds for things happening. Just kind of clicked randomly and eventually got free.

Short and sweet. Well done.

Thanks for the comment on my game! This is very well done, love the style

mollymus says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 9:15am

I like it! Just like last year! Good job!

mchaza says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 1:45pm

took me a while and the comments convincing me to keep playing, no bad, just annoying waiting for the phone.

josefnpat says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 2:51pm

I won, but I don't understand what I did.

martijn says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 2:52pm

Got stuck for a while after drawing the door.

bobiniki says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 3:47pm

I really love this.

Puzzlem00n says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 4:29pm

Haha, wow! I got the phone by accident at first, but then I went back to read the comments and see if you mentioned how I got it. BoRING... Hahaha, funny. But you really do need to make it more apparent to the player how they solved the problem.

All in all, love it.

Pretty cute!
I like the way the dialog expression :D

Simple (but hard first puzzle) and fun! :)

Just got the door drawn and got stuck. Felt nice on the way there though. :)

rogueNoodle says ...
May 2, 2013 @ 1:39pm

Great art, and while I was tempted to quit at one point (after finding the door), I stuck with it and was glad I did :)

May 6, 2013 @ 8:37pm

Very nice game! Took me a while to discover what to do, but when you do, it's great!

Please, take a minute to play and rate game, thanks!

I liked your story line.

badlydrawnrod says ...
May 8, 2013 @ 7:13pm

The graphics are unmistakably yours. It took a while for me to figure out how to get the phone, but everything fell into place after that. A nice little puzzler, and clearly it's not just my cat that goes crazy for fish.

alcazar says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 4:52pm

I like it, but i dont know if it's bugged or what? because, i'm blocked in the wall's hole
