Escape One Room

by Tangent128 - Compo Entry

You're trapped in a university lab's office! Can you make an escape?

It's one room, but big changes can happen to it over the years...


2016-Dec-11, 9:40 EST: Fixed items duping on time travel, and made pickup trigger on mousedown instead of mouseup.

Oh, just an every day time machine, no biggie.

Still, could not keep me interested.

No idea what to do :/
got the spade, cup and green box thing and no idea what any of them are for. tried lots of the usual adventure game tricks (trying random combinations and clicked on pretty much everything) but nothing worked.

This was a good laugh. Entertaining use of the theme. Ace graphics. Had no troubles. I want a confused pet from 67M years ago now.

I got to the point of getting lead, screwdriver, coffee cup, green box thing, and a bone. No clue what to do at that point. I don't know why I played for so long after getting stuck. Is there a solution?

In retrospect this needed more playtesting time, but some ROT13-encoded hints of the main stuck points I've heard about:

Little rough around the edges, but I had fun with it and figured out my escape.
nice work.

Nice little adventure game. Some more object descriptions (or mouse-over stuff) might make the puzzles a little less opaque.
