Go Out Screen

by allanolivei - Compo Entry

Help the character to find the level exit.
But be careful not to enter the darkness because of abstinence character by computers.



Our character is totally addicted to computers and can not stay away from them.

The scenery is dark when abstinence this very high because the character only sees computers.

Solve the puzzles of computers to rotate parts of the scenery.
Keep an eye on the plates next to the computers.

Really nice graphics. Shame that I suck at those tile puzzles though! Love the abstinence from computers idea.

Looks and feels really good. I honestly love the idea of the turning rooms. The only thing I didn't like was the repeating puzzles, but that has more to do with personal preferences.

Really great art, i really suck at puzzle games, couldnt resolve the first one.
Please add some music!

Interesting game concept with the rotating rooms and the dark ambient mood. However I kinda felt that the puzzles were unnecessary, and that it was putting me on a tangent away from the actual beauty of the game. Overall great job on the game!

ok .. I'm finding the unnecessary puzzle. I will remove and put something simpler.

Solid art, gameplay, and concept! Would have liked more such puzzles and more complexity, but what you have is very polished. Feel proud!

Really sweet mechanic. I didn't get them all in the beginning, and I had to peak in the pictures just to find out that you can actually jump! Good work!

Now that was a fresh experience :)
I'd love to see this expanded into a bigger game with more challenging levels!

I enjoyed it a fair amount ^_^ I like the graphics and the main mechanic but I think you could have juiced some more ideas out of that mechanic.

Really cool game and great graphics!

I agree with @hollowspecter - I needed to look at the screenshots to realize that I could jumpas well.

Love the graphic style!

Nice entry, new idea and good execution. Good job.

Very good game, simple but amazing!

Really beautiful game, however I found it to be too short and easy. Still, I think the idea and the mechanics are really cool!

Nice puzzle, climbing over sideways furniture fells pretty original! The only minor quirk I see is that the puzzle interface is a bit counter-intuitive: the arrow points anticlockwise while the rooms rotate clockwise.

Graphics were nice, and the objective was clear once you spent a minute with he game. I think a bit of sound would have added a lot to the game though

Pretty cool. Not my type of game but very well done and good look and feel and original ideas

Great game! It took me lot of time until I find out how to solve the puzzle though :D The graphics looks very similar as in my game. We have very similar art style :)

Such a cool idea, this being made into a full game I can see happening.

Liam :D says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 1:21pm

Neat! Love the idea and the execution. Best of all, this idea could be expanded a lot, so if you want to continue development after LD, you have a lot of things you can do.

Great looking game! The visual effects from withdrawal look awesome :)

Nice pixel art graphics

mortus says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 1:30pm

Great idea and solid implementation, too bad there's not much of it. I also wish there was no embed ability on new LD site, because it makes voting process much harder. Your game doesn't fit the embed frame btw.

Played through the whole puzzle, nice varied mechanics and controls are solid. Great quality effort. Would have loved to have the 'room turn' UI overlay on the actual level.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 1:41pm

Neat little puzzle with nice art. I wish there was more to really see what you could have done with these mechanics.

Boracho says ...

The art style is really awesome! reminds of me of old webcomics or Where's Waldo. Clever use of the theme. Game plays nice as well. It's a shame you couldn't get any sound or music though. Awesome entry!

Dec 11, 2014 @ 3:16pm

Interesting concept. Funny but sad. The addiction that has him climbing over the furniture gives him a "twisted" view of the world. Metaphor! :P

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:15pm

Cool idea for a puzzle game, bit tricky to figure out what to do though. The withdrawal where he only sees computers was darkly amusing. Really nice pixel art as well! Good job.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:16pm

Really clever entry. Took me a moment to realize I can jump on objects to reach other rooms, I'm surprised how short this turned out to be. However the game was very well done and fun little experience, good job.

Overall nice game. I think the puzzles were pretty simple but that also goes with this kind of style! Looks nice and simple, the objective is solid! Great idea and great game!

Nice funny game. I recommend you to extend it and make puzzles more complicated.

Pretty cool concept and gameplay! Would have liked a little more :) Good job! Thanks!

The graphics really work well with the concept. Great job!

Dec 13, 2014 @ 11:51pm

Very original idea and mechanics. I like the artwork too.
Now I guess I'll have to try it out for real...

khahem says ...

Good idea and nice graphics.

Maybe I was too lucky but the puzzle was too easy, I wanted to play for a longer time :)

I hate platformers, but I loved this game! The puzzles were easy enough once I figured out I could jump. I liked the mechanic of the screen getting darker.

Dec 14, 2014 @ 4:18pm

Really liked climbing up the shelves and stuff in a room to get higher. Nice entry. :)

Dec 14, 2014 @ 6:30pm

Lot of uses of "screen" theme in this one. Good job. Also like the graphics. But it was kinda easy :P
Anyways congrats on your first ludumdare!

Story of my life. Not a bad design! Could use some audio.

dunin says ...
Dec 18, 2014 @ 11:50am

Cool graphics and cool concept.
Just two things: -too easy - the jump is weird (maybe just a jump animation could fix that)

lemmily says ...
Dec 18, 2014 @ 1:16pm

I feel dumb, I'm not quite sure how to actually get anywhere..... I rotated the rooms, but I don't understand how to get to the other rooms above. Derp

Ashtom says ...
Dec 18, 2014 @ 1:17pm

Well done. I like the idea but it would have been great to see more out of it with different levels and expanding on the mechanic.

Tifu says ...
Dec 18, 2014 @ 4:33pm

Cool idea, I beat the game, but somehow the sliding tile puzzles (screenshot 3) never showed up for me? All I ever did with the computers was rotate the rooms to the correct position so I could make it up higher, but it looks like there was something else in the game from that screenshot? =/

Tuism says ...
Dec 18, 2014 @ 9:15pm

I'm really not sure what just happened :)

I'm not entirely sure why computers turn rooms, or why you forget about everything if you don't use a computer, or why the exit is at the top...

But that's just me, I like themes to make sense :P

Pretty good job if you disregard the things not making sense :)

Nice game I like graphics and the global idea. Congrats!
