After an indefinite amount of falling you find yourself in a strange house. The only person who might know what is truly going on is a mysterious individual who contacts you over the phone. Only by solving puzzles and overcoming barriers can you hope to escape.

Controls are listed by mousing over the controller symbol on the top right corner of the game screen. They are also listed below:
Arrow Keys- Movement
Z- Action
X- Use Item
C- Swap Item
Space- Menu (Can swap and combine items here)
0- Mute
+/- - Adjust Volume

(This is actually the first in a series of games that I want to work on. Originally this was going to be one large game, but it was decided that it made more sense to split it up into parts. Hope you enjoy the first part!

Also keep an eye out for Easter Egg things.)

EDIT: Here's a walkthrough for those who need it-

EDIT 2: Now with configurable controls!

I liked it. A lot of what you have to do makes sense unlike some other puzzle games.

It's definitely funny and engaging to play, but rather easy in all but a few puzzles. No big deal, though. None of the puzzles are convoluted or nonsensical. When more games are added to the series, the length will make up for it.
The controls should be displayed on the title screen. Looking down into the description shouldn't be necessary.

Yeah, you're right about the controls on the title screen. This is especially important because not everyone will be playing the game on Newgrounds. Turns out the game was copied to a bunch of websites without including the description, leaving many people outside Newgrounds without a clue on how the controls work.

I had no idea the game was going to be reposted in other places, haha. I'll know better next time.

Great game, the item combinations actually made me think and it stumped me on more than one occasion. The humor was awesome and it reminded me of old SNES adventure RPGs like Earthbound. The style was great and fun and the guy on the phone was a greatly mysterious character. The newspapers were great, my favorite one being the "bar now open to humans". This game is awesome and I can't wait for the sequel!

The gameplay is very cool, but I'd suggest change the key-layout towards "ASD" instead of "ZXC", so that players without America keyboard layout can play better. Thanks.

Huh! I had no idea that the keyboard layout on English keyboards varied! (Obviously I know now, especially since I did a quick google search for keyboards.)

What I'll probably do then is map each action to two different keys (eg A/Z for action, S/X for action, etc). A large number of flash games still use that ZXC setup (and many people expect that set up), but it's definitely not a problem to just add extra bindings for those with keyboards where that setup doesn't work.
