Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

by Neonian - Compo Entry

You play as a prisoner that is trying to dig his way to freedom. Every so often you have to return to your room, so the officers don't notice you escaping.

The game is played in the browser. I coded in javascript, made art in and created music in Soundation.

Cool, well done. Love the twist of the guards coming back to check on you once in a while in a "digging" game. My only complaint is that the music sounds like a xmass song... xD

Pretty fun. One thing, it's sometimes too far to go back to your room.

The game didn't really announce that a timed bar appears when you need to come back, so my heartbeat sped up as I ran back thinking holy crap I'm not gonna make it a couple of times before I even saw the bar appear for the first time.

Great submission!

Reminds me of an old 90's era shareware game. Nice.

Nice little game, my only complaint is that the messages from notes disappear too quickly after moving. I frequently found myself not knowing what a a note said.

Nice entry, I really love the concept! The gameplay is nice, and the going back and forth to your cell was very fitting to the theme! Good job!

a nice game, but the general pace of the game is a bit slow, Fricken loved the soundtrack though.

Fun game I escaped within 5 minutes and it wasn't too hard. Maybe add a hard / medium mode where they check more often or it takes longer to dig out.

Interesting game, but I would have like more powerups like for example different types of pickaxes for blocks with different types of hardness so that the game feels less like a go back and forward game. :)

This is the first one I actually completed haha. Loved the music and the gameplay is simple enough to keep you interested. Good job! We also did our jam with javascript, if you want to check out ;)
