You are stuck in a time loop damned to loop over and over again in the same room.

This is not a straightforward puzzle game. This might even be be what you call a nogame (but it is a game nevertheless). The annoyingness serves a purpose.

made for Ludum Dare 37 compo in 48H, the theme of the jam was One Room.

the game was made with webGL. don't worry if at first load it shows black screen for a long moment...

update: slightly augmented character speed and added show all text on click

This is an interesting twist on a puzzle game. Graphics were detailed enough to find the pieces and melt them. I enjoyed figuring out the puzzle for myself. Good job on this game made in 48 hours.

The medals work, and I earned them all.

Pretty decent game. Keep it up.

Punishment indeed!

Not a bad game, title is appropriate ;). Once you figure out what you need to do, it's pretty easy. I didn't find it as boring as others, but that might be because I didn't end up looping as often as they did. And that ending is brutal!

Wish it was longer, but I understand why that probably wouldn't work with a game like this, so perhaps this is the best it can be.
