Cubed

by LoHii - Compo Entry

Cubed is a shout-out to the Monkey Island-esque games with a slight horror twist which suits better some of the genre's quirks. As a horror game, I marked it as "maybe un-suitable", but I don't think there is too much to worry about. Also the subject matter is somewhat grim, so I put the "offensive-mark" up too, just in case.

Got stuck and read the walkthrough... I can't seem to perform step 5? Where is the green tube?

I did a huge double take when the game starts with you chained to a wall, that was really cool. I also like the whole reversal of the victim and tormenter. I'll admit I couldn't figure out how to unlock the 4 digit password lock. And when I tried to open it I couldn't get the lock off of the screen. I'd love to finish it if you gave me a hint :)

Wow. I'm glad I was able to finish this... inspired by Old Boy? Great puzzles too. The combination lock solution... yeah. 5* for mood :)

Danman9914 The 4 digit thing is hidden in the 4 of the letters, and the lock goes away with esc.

Hecotrhon the tube is the green thing tied around the upper cabinet. You can take it off by clicking the part on the left side of the cabinet.

Great mood. I got 3 of the four numbers, then guessed the last one :). Found it later.

Awesome! Dark, in multiple ways, but an amazing idea, felt odd playing that character. I feel more realistic looking character would have built better immersion, those cartoony eyes are more disturbing than the story.

Good job!

Grim and engaging story. Good puzzles. Felt like Binding of Isaac meets point and click adventure. Some of interactions didn't make complete sense to me and I had some interface confusion but overall great job.

Great game. Had a great story and mood, took me a while to solve it. Had a bit of an issue switching items until I realized I could just hit esc. Awesome job, really enjoyed it :)

Very nice point and click game! I especially enjoyed the puzzle which were not super obvious. And the mood is superb.

I loved how this game fit's the theme! I like the mood of the game, but I may be a bit too dark for me, it was a bit hard to see the screen.

@Verz Oh man, that's something I definately should've tested. I myself tend to go overboard with gamma on my screen xD

Awesome

Good story and art. Really liked how the code for the lock was hidden :) felt pretty smart when I figured it out.

Really good, nice feel to it. Kind of saw-ish but less gore :)

Sometimes I am rendered unable to select items from inventory, had to restart twice :(
Good game, I had to consult the walkthrough a couple of times, partly cos I didn't know what some items even were... hovertext over items saying what they are would have been good.
I didn't figure out where to get the padlock code on my own, but that was really clever, and I recognise that I had all the clues available and can only feel shame for not figuring it out :P
Good job!

This was great. Really dark which gave it a great mood. Got stuck at one point but I figured it out ahah. really enjoyed it.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
