Room Escape

by Tifu - Compo Entry

This is a room escape game. Explore the tiny room you have found yourself trapped in, and find a way to escape!

Created in Unity


First person exploration with mouse and WASD/Arrow keys
Left CTRL to crouch/stand up
Left click on items to pick them up, use items on objects, or press buttons
Right click to drop any items you are carrying
Q/E - Rotate picked up item

Objects glow when you mouse over them according to whether they can be picked up (yellow), an item can be used on them (green) or if they are a button/switch (purple/red).

It feels nice, and fits the theme very well. The puzzles were well thought out and it's a nice game :) Great job

@eruiz00 - I don't know what you're saying at the first part?

@Humanics - I take it there aren't spoiler tags on this comment board... what code are you trying? Can you type it here in some way that won't spoil the answer/stand out to people browsing the comments? (onetwothreefour might be better/less obvious than 1234, or add fake numbers to every second digit - 1526374 for example?) or is the problem something else than the final code?

Great example of classic genre.
If it wasn't so interesting, I will start to say, that it is too predictable genre for this theme, but execution of game itself is too great (especially logic) to starting this speech :D

I had to check the sourcecode for the code.. .. To not spoil.. Let's say I am a mess and thus wasn't able to get the code right from that D: :P Besides that it was a solid game

I really like the cartoony art direction for an escape the room game. The puzzles were nice too. Anyway, good job.

This one was hard for me! I have over 20 (real life) esc rooms, but still have to look to source code to find safe code. Hard to comment it without spoilers, so shortly, good job!

I'm really impressed by what you did here with the time provided! There is quite a lot of stuff to interact with and logic. It feels like a complete experience. The puzzles were challenging enough and interesting and you even had time to have an ending. very satisfying nice work! -RS

Great game, solid mechanics and a tricky puzzle. I wish there was some audio but really, it was fun!

Great asthetics, the 3D makes it stand out from others of the same genre, and escape rooms fit in with the theme perfectly.

PS The safe code really took a while to get.

I really liked this one! An escape room game is a natural fit for One Room, and you pulled it off really well. As everyone else has pretty much said, the safe code was tricky, but I felt like a goddamn genius when I finally worked it out, instead of frustrated that I couldn't get it for so long. It's difficult to strike the correct balance between a challenging puzzle and a frustratingly hard one, so nice job getting it just about right.

I'm mostly impressed that you got a 3D game working so well within the time limit, and the puzzles were all complete with no bugs that I could find. The art style was well-executed and consistent (and somewhat similar to my own entry, actually!) and I liked the fact you got so much all packed into a tiny area.

My one complaint would be that I wish there was some music in it. Something simple just to play in the background, a soothing ambient track would have done the job, although I do understand how hard it can be to get music into an LD entry.

Again, the safe code part of the puzzle was very well devised and tripped me up for a good few minutes, but I eventually got it. A very nice entry.

Really well done! I haven't been able to find the code of the safe though ^^' I might try again later today.
