The little big room

by jackolondon - Jam Entry

This game is based on escape rooms.
You need to find a way to active the button to escape from this little (big) room.

Control : wasd or arrow key
activate : e
left mouse button to hold an item in your left hand
right mouse button to hold an item in your right hand

I hope you'll enjoy it!

Note : there is NO bug regarding the enigmas. If you can't get trhough it, it'sbecause you didn't find the solution :D

On Linux, there are some control issues with the game.

Only S and D keys work (and arrow keys). A and W fail to move the player, and E doesn't seem to work as well. Mouse clicks work though.

I had to use the arrow keys to move because wasd wasn't working ): Pretty interesting game but it seemed really linear and when I completed the game I didn't feel like a did much other than look around. I really like the mechanic with the colored glass though.

@burnedkirby woops! I forgot to change zqsd to wasd, my bad! I just change it right now.
Regarding the E issue... there is no issue, you just didn't find a way to activate the button ;)

WASD-controls bugged for me too, but the color-mechanic was definetly enjoyable. The fact that you had to reset the bomb helped keep you on edge, making the puzzles more interesting - a good design choice!

I didn't manage to solve it :(

With more time it could use some better feedback on the interactions, but yay! puzzles.

Pretty barebones scape the room game. Didn't even manage to get through the first enigma, but with some polish, the stylized looks and mechanics can become a great game.

Difficult! But I think it could be pretty interesting

Did not get past the first puzzle. Some materials with color would have made it easier to stay in the room for a longer time, it is very bright when playing for a longer time and not finding a solution.

Didn't find the solution - although there is some serious bug with shadows (which makes it really hard to focus).

Also misses some music.

This is very hard, perhaps add some explanation on what you're supposed to do? I was just randomly pressing buttons hoping to find a solution. It definitely suits the theme, though,

very nice game!!! the mouse cursor disappear when try again, but the game's good, congrats!!!

Was tricky, but completed it at the end!
Good job, just would have painted the room with solid colors, at least. With full white is so difficult to distinguish objects

I love the way you move walls to make the room bigger !
I get stucked two minutes at the beginning, but I finished the game really quickly after that, in a random way... I think I just had luck :D Also, the red light wasn't useful, but maybe it's normal ?
Good try for a puzzle entry, nice job !

I loved that color thing, how do you achieve it?
The room getting bigger thing is so simple yet so good!
Great work, please improve graphics!

Dec 17, 2016 @ 7:17pm

Nice entry! I like the concept, although all the white make things hard to see. ;)

I can't rate this entry as I did not manage to do anything. I just basically walked in a blank room. I could only grab the object with a face but couldn't do anything with it and at some point it just disappeared...

I didn't manage to find the solution...
