Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.
The Cellarby Phil Strahl - Compo Entry
The Cellar is a little Lovecraft-inspired game. You play as Howard who wants to open the portal to the Other Realm in this odd cellar. But to open the door, Howard must first solve a riddle and activate the correct levers.
The room holds various symbols of different deities. Luckily, Howard is a scholar of the occult so upon examining them multiple times, he'll interpret the symbols for you.
Please play with the sound turned on, ideally with headphones :)
As always, I wanted to do more with it, but still somehow made it.
WASD or Arrow Keys to move,
E or SPACE to interact.
Tip: Hold the interaction-key to speed up the text.
EDIT +60 minutes after submission hour: Fixed a game breaking bug & some typos.
