It’s a fresh new year and you have a fresh new job! You thought being an IT guy would be easy, but your boss gives you a huge challenge right on the first day. Turns out that, after the new year, everyone in the office seems to have forgotten their computer’s password! Now you have to play the detective and figure out how to unlock the computers in the office.

This game was made in two weeks for "My First Game Jam: Winter 2021" which had the theme "Locked".

If you ever get stuck, click the "?" for a hint, you get a new hint every minute.

Almost all of the art and sounds are original, however several of the sounds and music were modified from free sources. Credits are listed on Github: https://github.com/jbodah/game_jam-locked/blob/master/credits.txt

If you get a black screen, I recommend you refresh the page until it works... It should eventually work for everyone. Sorry, but this bug can't be fixed, the original programmer has since moved on from this project.

This was a fun game. I love the theme and puzzles, but my favorite part has to be all the characters. I love how much personality you gave them, and that each character's office helps tell their story.

My favorite room was the artists. I like how you contrasted the "modern artist" character with the more "traditional" artist, and gave them both very compelling personal stories. And I like the lesson that even two completely different people can come together in understanding.

Hey, thanks a lot! <3

Very solid little game (like the puzzles and consistency of the clues) and I'm in agreement with TheLemoon27 and I'd totally like to see a longer version! Also nice jazz choice for the soundtrack!

It's a little short. About 10 minutes of playtime, but I was rushing for passwords. Didn't explore everything or every dialogue option. Fun, only wish it was longer

Loved it!

great game
