I thought this was hilarious while I was making it. But when I try to explain it to people they look at me like I'm crazy.
You are trapped in house. The owner of the house has been missing for awhile and he might not be that stable, so you'll want to get out. But the door is locked.
It's a classic escape the room game! I know they're not everyone's favorite, but I love them and it really fit the theme this time.

All the code is JavaScript. All the art is done in photoshop.
I know that it's probably buggy. 48 hours is not a lot of time to work out how to do things like combine items, and create a working inventory, and, I'm just saying, the bit where you punch in codes to unlock things - that was tricky. Buggy or not, I'm pretty proud of how I got that to work.
I wanted to have better animations and some other really cool stuff, but, I just ran out of time. I had to really hurry in the end to make the deadline.
Well, here's hoping people like it! and also, here's hoping I don't get a cease and desist from Viacom before the judging deadline! lol -
here's the code:

Nice entry.. Thanks for including the hints, I found just the chair one to be tricky!
There is a bug where you can click the mailbox when it's not visible. I know how limited the time is, just to let you know!
Liked your sense of humor btw!

Haha, well this is the first escape the room game I played where I actually won! Pretty solid entry, although could definitely use some more polish.

It was fun because of your comments, but not the game itself a lot. And the dead mailbox was... unexpected hahahah!
