It's just another fun "escape the room" game, right?

The player wakes up in a room and they need to solve puzzle to get out. The formula's there. 

But something's amiss. Puzzle elements start to get more and more abstract.

You keep escaping room after room after room for what? There's just more rooms! It's like you're not even escaping at all.

There's more at play than just four walls...

That it does! I'm really interested to hear what you think.

Feels strange that I announced it back in December. These week/month-long projects always end up being a lot bigger than I thought.

Just wanted to mention there's been reports of a few gamebreaking bugs since yesterday.

If you encounter anything let me know. They'll be fixed in an update at the end of the week.

I got to this area with 2 orange pixel guys and a boar. I got some berries.

I couldn't figure out what to do so I gave up. There's no save button so I think I'll stop here. You weren't kidding about "abstract". This is one WEIRD game!

I'll consider posting something along the lines of a walk through at some point. It's defiantly weird, I was just having fun and getting my hands dirty. (laugh)

Thanks for playing.

How about a save button? I recommend that if the game is more than 20 minutes or so that you let the player save progress and come back to it. I had no choice but to just abort the game because I just did not have the time to continue.

Just a suggestion

Saving and Download update
« Reply #8 on: 14 Jul 2018, 20:47 »
Alrighty, the game now has a save feature!

Also for all of those who have download direct, I've neglected to update the direct download version.

Now it's up-to-date with ETRv4.
