The idea is great, and the game is not bad. But would really like some kind of walk through instruction. But overall well done.

Neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

just spent 14 minutes exploring every nook and cranny only to decide that the game is too smart for me. However it is very well done. Enjoyed it. Lots of puzzles.

I guess that's a bit to much for me, but you've captured the essence of a real escape the room game: turning everything upside down, and that is FUN! :D

I have spent the most time on this game of all gamejam games so far, puzzle design, i am happy i perservered and got to the end. Quite a difficult main puzzle! I think there may have been one combination unopened of a 2 lock box.

Cool small puzzle game fun to play but very hard start atleast for me xD. I also found a bug that when you jump on a create and then pick it up and continue jumping the player will have no gravity until he starts walking again. But other than that cool game and solid entry

Nice! The physics here are very fun, if a bit silly, but you can't beat tossing around a giant bookcase. Seems like a very solid escape the room type game. I have to admit I didn't have the patience to solve the puzzles in the big room, but watching the video seems like you came up with some clever stuff.

Spend a lot of time trying to figure out, what to do with clock and with pictures on the walls. Very interesting game with challenging puzzles. Nice job!

It's very fun, but it's annoying when you have to check all of your 5 keys on all of your 10 locks and then you finish checking every lock with every key, and it turns out none of them go with eachother. The graphics are realistic, and the audio is nice. The theme could have fit better, you are going out of prisoner rooms, and into big sleeping spaces, up in sort of attics. There are doors, etc. But overall it is a good game.

Wow, a really good puzzle game for such a short time! I've not been able to solve all of the puzzles yet but I'm having lots of fun.

One issue for me is that there isn't a way to tell which combination goes with which lock, which makes the big room a bit tedious.

Good work!

Very clever escape the room puzzle game. Took me a while to solve the puzzles and I got lucky with one of them. Enjoyable game to play, well done.
