Puzzling Escape

by velvelajade - Mini LD 62 Entry

UPDATE: I decided to SCRAP this version and do something new entirely because it is IMPOSSIBLE to have an Alien planet that looks like this AND get depth to show. Besides, the word challenge is too hard for those who don't do MENSA word challenges and I need to make thing more "intuitive for those who are not used to challenging logic" problems. I think I'll wait for MV to come out and for me to afford it before I submit anymore games. Thanks!

Thanks for trying out the game! I still say my last game that I did over the weekend was much better, but that one didn't have a monster eventing issue.
. . .

The only thing that is NOT mine, is the people themselves, and the music. Those are VX Ace's library resources that came with the program. Thanks!

Yes! This game DOES work, in that you should be able to get to Game End. Please let me know if you aren't capable of finding a way out of the Outerspace challenge! Thanks!

This game is about an evil person who kidnaps you and places you in his
evil world. You have to figure out how to escape. The game is so-so due
to one event taking 6 days to iron out. I eventually had to dumb down
the code to fit VX Ace's evil eventing limitations. My fault there. lol
Honestly, I only like 2 of the challenges in this game - the last two.
Enjoy! (No evil ubersudoku in this one!)

.ps for the main page, its

UPDATE: Me stupid! I put the link under web. I moved it to Windows, where it belongs. Sorry about that!

whats missing? A better beginning, and harder puzzles for the first 2 challenges. And, those BOX challenges, don't really do anything. Yes, you get to figure out how to move something, but once moved, nothing happens. Oops! Ran out of time, and forgot to put that event ending in. rofl

Update 2:
Be sure when you get to the spot with the anagram letters, that you guess which words are needed by changing the letters to the correct letter in ABC order according to what the “?” letter would be. After you solve that one, you should be able to walk up to discover which door will lead you to the outerspace challenge.

Clearer explanation:
And, my deepest apologies. The boxes, when put where they belong, still don’t do anything. I forgot to put in the reward. Its not like I had time anyway, but still. Sorry!

Well...I got REALLY confused of what I had to do!
And I didn't get it, I'm sorry. :(
I know that the guy said he wouldn't say a thing but come on! Have mercy! ;(
For curiosity, why didn't you post the download link here on the LD page?
It's better to quick look to your game I think! :)

I really couldn't figure out what to do.

No idea what to do really. I included it in part 3 of my Mini LD #62 compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out! https://youtu.be/SRDUcF0cNXQ

You go talk with the person and see what he says. Then, after that, you try and figure out how to escape. I admit it isn't my best work. I should have dumbed down my event long ago. Thus, my beginning wasn't very good. And, the boxes I do admit don't reward to really do anything as I ran out of time.
Thanks Jupiter_Hadley for featuring it. :) And thanks for trying to figure out the game!

I hope to update my game sometime next week (when I have more time). I'll put in a how to solve the logic puzzles for each individual area. And, I might give clues for the Word game puzzle as that one is admittedly, Master Level. Thanks!
