I beat the game. Not obvious that I need to interact few times with one object. But when I understand this mechanics I press spacebar until get result and have no time to read appearing text.

Selecting objects can get a bit tricky. I had just about given up and was going to declare this "prison simulator" haha. Once I got it going, though, it was pretty cool!

A nice brain teaser. It reminds me of Grim Fandango with those riddles.

I dunno why I put the TV in the sink, but cool game! I Included it in part 4 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

Nice work finishing a 3D game for the comp, I thought this was a good way of getting it all on one screen by making it make sense with the theme of the world. I'm not sure if it was intended to be funny, but when I solved the issue of people being able to see me mess with the TV by covering the door with beds I unbolted from the wall it made me laugh out loud. Good job.

Finished your game,
As the first comment said. The thing with "having to press space a lot of time" makes the player not reading the text, so that's kind of bad.

Otherwise, pretty impressive work on the 3D for a game jam! There's some funny things.
(having a naked woman in your game is a nice try to get some votes, but you wont get me! è_é :P )

Not a bad escape game, but a lot of the puzzles don't really make sense. What I did was just go to random stuff and hit the spacebar randomly and see what works and what doesn't.

Unless intended, the controls should be simplified. WASD can simple move the character. No unnatural rotation or backwards movement, just moving up, down, left or right.

Well done for a compo game! The controls were a bit finnicky, and I did not try "space" for a while because I was clicking on things, but once I got that figured out it was fun to solve the puzzle.

Nice prison escape. I think I am now ready to commit the crimes.

Thanks for taking the time to post, this type of feedback is where you learn the most about game development in a jam. Some time a full scale adventure game 'Day of the Tentacle' style would be tons of fun to make!

I couldn't figure out what to do and just before I gave up I found where to commit my first step, and the item I got feels like a magic rod or something and did everything... And everything you couldn't use before became useful! I really had fun. Nice game!

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.
