Boxed In

by EvilObjective - Jam Entry

You are trapped all alone in a small room - but you can push the walls and floors at will! Can you escape?

Controls:
Arrow Keys to Move. Hold Space when against a wall/floor then arrow keys to move the walls/floor in the direction you want - just don't hit your head on the roof!

It was really neat moving the walls and floor to navigate the room!

The idea is really interesting, but sometimes I just wished I could run! But pretty cool :)

Really interesting concept but results in the same game mechanic as flying through the level with limited vision. Nice sound+mood though, it does still feel pretty good to move those walls around.

Cool mechanic! I was digging it, but I feel like you could have used it in a lot of creative ways which is a little bit of a shame you didn't.

@Geosearchef @DevDennis Agreed. I originally had boxes that you had to move onto pressure plates to release doors (by pushing the walls, the character couldn't move them) . It added a lot more puzzle depth but collision issues kept breaking the game so I had to remove them and reconfigured the level without them. If I do a post-jam version it will be with the collision fixed and boxes in.

Nice core mechanic. Definitely could be expanded on in a post-jam. Cool stuff.

This is quite great IMO. The concept of being able to move the floor and walls at will was a nice concept, and I'd love to see more of this post-jam!
