Not the Sharpest Sword in the Box (2011 game roundup)
Writing about web page http://www.draknek.org/games/escapology/
Created for: Ludum Dare 21 (10th – 21st August)
Development time: 48 hours
Status: Wants to be ported to touchscreen devices
Taking part in Ludum Dare from Cambridge again, I had the idea of making a game about an escapologist for the theme of “escape”. I wasn’t sure it would be interesting enough to spend 48 hours on, so I decided to make it for Klik of the Month #50 instead.
That prototype was promising enough that I decided to polish it up for Ludum Dare (I hadn’t started anything else yet, so I wasn’t throwing anything away).
The audio was thrown together very last-minute, but I’m really happy with the variety of exclamations the guy has.
This would be perfect on touchscreen devices, so I should really get around to that. It’d need a complete rewrite since the code is some of my worst in recent memory.
