Test Chamber

by 43iscoding - Compo Entry



You are trapped in the test chamber.


* Arrows or WSAD to move
* Space to jump
* E - pick up/release item
* R - throw item


Currently, there are some bugs considering items falling through the walls/floor and sloppy holding of the items. I'll try to deal with that stuff tonight!

That was Interesting way to ramp up the game. Controls are a little bit frustrating though. Hard to keep ahold of items. Love the pixel scientist!

I'm not sure what to do, but I liked the idea of the test chamber

Not bad, tough towards the beginning one of the spheres glitched out of the wall and I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do after it said I was on my own, I had lit up the panels on the wall but nothing happened.

You know those toys for toddlers where you have to fit blocks of different shapes into corresponding holes? This is like that, but for MEN. Also women. And anyone else who likes physics-based challenges.

I like the pixel guy and the overall clean look. I also appreciate how cluttered things get at the end, you don't see chaos like that too often :D

oh_andrej, yeah, at first I wanted to do exactly that puzzle. But then I got it a bit simplified ^^

Sadly, I didn't have enough time to draw the lab and main character properly =(

Very interesting. Wish there was a way to rotate an object that you carry around your body. At some point I gave up, because I couldn't move stuff out of the way. But fun nevertheless! :D

I liked the mess this perv scientist puts in your room after a few levels.
But I don't really enjoy tidying games , it reminds me too much of my own room.

Nice settings but controls and throwing objects was a bit irritating. However, its still a cool game

Very Portal-esque, I liked that. But it's to hard to place the items correctly, and the room is very crowded with crap.

Well done overall.

Interesting idea! I found it a bit annoying that my grip of the items disappeared as soon as I gained height; made my plan of creating staircases etc. impossible.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
