A science fiction prison break game, August 2, 2021
This game is the author's first game, which is surprising considering the level of detail and programming in the game, although there are a few bugs.
This game features a prison break from an alien base. For some reason (never explained in-game), your captors disappear and you have to shut everything down.
The puzzles are a mixed bag. A lot make sense, a lot are fun, sometimes the two groups aren't the same (I enjoyed a language code puzzle that had simple, nearby hints involving interaction, but later everything was in English). Occasionally solutions seemed really obscure.
The coding needed a bit more synonyms. For instance, late in the game there are buttons that have names, but saying PUSH [Button name] doesn't work. Instead, you have to say the action that they perform (this example isn't in the game, but it would be like having a button saying lights where 'push lights button' doesn't work but 'turn on lights' does). A couple of other inconsistencies with synonyms was probably the major fault of the game.
Story-wise, I feel like it omitted some major features, but what's here is okay. It has some pretty strong gore at one point.
As a game, it's okay. As an author's first game, it's much better than most, and I'd expect the now-experienced author to be capable of making very good games in the future.
