Bot Explorer Bureau for Egyptian Investigations on Graves and Historical Tombs
3D Puzzle platformer

* Use arrow keys or WSAD to move the remote robot and to explore the egyptian tomb. Beware of ancient traps and mecanisms.

* Reach the tunnel on the top of each room to get access to the next room.

* Use the restart button to retry the current room. The Next and Previous buttons allow you to retry the previously visited rooms (the progression is saved in your web browser).

* The keys 'P', 'N', 'R' and 'H' work like buttons.

* The WebGL version was well tested on Windows 10 with Firefox (64) and Edge. Any feedback about other platforms or browsers is welcome.

Made with:
- Unity 3D 5.4
– C# with Visual Studio community 2015
– Inkscape
– ProBuilder

Have fun ;)

Great challenging game overall. I'm in Linux using Chromium v47, and it's working without glitches.

Maybe its just me, but I was able to figure out what to do on level 3 to trigger the pillar-elevator.

Movement and Physics feel very 'right' tough, bonus points for that!

Fun game, sometimes hard to move, and the sound effects are punishing on the ears. Overall though a nice entry

Some more levels would have been great but I really enjoyed the idea.

The motion feels a little too fast, and it's hard to time the buttons precisely due to this. Otherwise, I like the concept.

A really fun game. I would've preferred it if it actually said what each did, but a really good start to a really great game.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Many solo participants enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
