Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Escape Your Room

by AthelGS - Compo Entry

What do you get when you get a One Room theme, a 15 year old who knows how to program, and a lack of a really good, decent idea? This. This is my first entry to any type of game jam, and I really feel as if this was a learning experience for me.

Also I apologize for the fact that I can't make any other ports, I only have GameMaker: Standard. Good thing I'm releasing the source with this! :-) Also my code formatting is crappy as freak as well, so yeah. It isn't usually like that, don't worry.

This game was quite fun. I personally enjoy escape the room games, so playing this was quite a fun experience. I like the scene with the computer.

That means a lot to me. I wanted to add some more functionality to the computer but by that point I was burned out. Thank you!

For a first game it's a solid experience. The game contains everything you need to make it an "escape the room" game. So good job.

That computer part threw me off for a minute. I honestly thought my PC just switched into safe-mode. I love it dude :)

Good effort for your first compo. Every time you make something, you learn something, so you get faster and have a better codebase to work with next time.

That computer gave me flashbacks to my childhood.

Great job for a first game! With what you've learned, I'm sure your next one will be even better!

Thank you all for your comments! They mean alot! Just so you know, this game has two endings. Not sure if anybody has gotten both of them, but thought I'd tell those who didn't know :p

Not bad first attempt man. It was short but cohesive, and the computer bit (that fullscreen too) was quite cool.

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