The Infinity Prison

by Multiplexor - Compo Entry

It's the year 2764, and you have been sent to the infinity one-room prison to serve your time... Tired of the excruciating boredom, you grab the first chance you get to make a run for it!

How far will you be able to get?!

The Infinity Prison is something like a "Endless Massive Runner" where you lead a group of fugitives that try to runaway.

Space to Jump
Return/Enter to Attack (Attack the cages to free more fugitives)

There are different fugitives that have diferent attacks, free them all!

Thanks all for playing, any feedback is much appreciated!

Awesome!! This is incredibly well made, especially for 48 hours. It's got a story, it's got cutscenes, it's got innovative gameplay elements, and it's fun! The only thing I didn't really see it had was the theme (unless I missed it)

I could totally see this becoming a successful mobile game as-is! Just throw some ads in there ;P

No kidding about how epic this is for 48 hours. Wow. Great fun.

Really nice game :) I think it matched the theme with one huge room that is rotation

@alex @smiley Yep, that was the idea! One endless room-prison. It's a bit of a stretch tough, that's true!

Thank you all for the feedback :)

Nice work ! It's not completely following the theme though ... I loved the idea of playing with 2 players at the same time. Also, The game is quite hard!

Great compo entry. Making an infinite runner work with the one room theme was no small task, and you made it work!

The jump seemed a little too high/hard to control but it wasn't a deal breaker and probably made the game more challenging.
Breaking out other prisoners and adding to your trail is the most fun component. I felt a little sad when most of my dudes hit the first mine I came across!

Really neat! I like the freeing prisoners mechanic that adds something to the usual endless runner formula. And the rotation each time you get to a new section is also cool.

Nice game, very interesting to see how the prisoners work as a group! The audio is great too! The theme wasn't followed that much, even thought is a great game!

Great game. Loved the music and the introduction scene. Is there a logical ending to the game or is it infinite?

Multiplexor says ...

@MentaL13 It's infinite, hence the name :)

Great music and a great infinity scroller. I thought it was fun. The first minute of story-mode was quite boring though, thanks a lot that I didn't have to repeat that each time I died! I got 17 sectors.

Really fun game and very addictive.

Amazing game!! Had a lot of fun playing through it quite a few times, can't believe how good it is for a compo!!

I hate runners. But actually love this one for the fresh approach to this genre. Well done!

Really enjoyed the intro polish, humour and soundtrack was excellent. Enjoyed using my cellmates as cannon fodder for the laser :).
Great entry

Wow spot on, aesthetics are unique and super polished and creates a great mood. Graphics are very original, music is fantastic and each visual and audio feedback feels good. It's theme-related, really fun and addictive, you nailed the difficulty curves and it's a really innovative runner. Loved the rotation effect and the intro, nice humor too. Great in every aspect, stellar job, especially for compo.

Everything feels perfect! That level of polish!
Great job on this, the best compo entry I've seen so far! <3

Epic game mate! Very funny and well made. I liked a lot the concept, the intro and the music. One time I felt below the floor but that is the only bug I found. Good job you made pretty well!

Really cool! Having to guess-control a few (disposable) people at once was a great idea and well-executed.

Well done! I love everything about this game, great music, hilarious intro, fun gameplay, and great cell placement as bait that distracts me and leads me into a trap! You really earned your top 5 fun rating!
