Hah, sure had some similarities to the story of our game!

I think it was completely broken on the first run tho. Got stuck at some point, and when I restarted to try again I got a very different series of events, so something must've gone wrong the first time... But second time went fine and I reached the end!

One thing that happened the first time was that when the raft had escaped the screen the game just got stuck and didn't move on to the ship and I couldn't click it either, so the second time I panicked a bit about clicking it at the right times to have that not happen again. Is that a recurring bug?

Not sure how liberal to consider this interpretation of the theme... There is only one actual room being the tavern, but multiple "game rooms" as in different places to be, tho OTOH the player is really only in one place the whole time, and OTOH your whole deal may just be your pun? :p

Music was nice! Too bad I can't rate it, but I understand it has something to do with the fact that it was made post compo?

The transition from the jug back to the ship is really nice!

Good job!

Thanks for feedback, guys!

@Avant-Marde, everything is working fine for me. I was unable to reproduce your case, but I will try again on weekends.

Interpretation of the theme. Not only a pun ("One rum" title). Game says: "You may travel across seven seas, but sometimes you feel you are locked in one room". I didn't want to take theme literally, so "one room" is a metaphor here. I believe it's a more interesting approach.
Also "one room" sounds a bit similar to "one screen" (LD31 theme), and I wanted to try something new. )
