Greetings from Norway. :smile:
After playing through the entire Myst series (best games eva!) I was inspired to make a little escape the room game. To those of you unfamilar with Escape the room it's a genre of point-and-click games where you solve puzzles to escape an enclosed area. Often you'll have to search around and look for clues or items.

I made the scenes in Google Sketchup with the V-Ray plugin for lighting, then welded them together with game maker.
Tell me what you think? Also give me some feedback on the difficulty; because it's not supposed to be very easy. :happy:

Play Escape the Room
Don't be supprised if it takes a minute to load

Instructions:
-Pick up items by clicking on them.
-To look at items you've picked up click on them in the inventory.
-To use them drop it onto whatever you want to use it on. (Drag the key onto the lock).



I'll add some music and sound effects later. ;)
Good luck guys

It's hard! I just don't know where to begin! There seems to be multiple puzzles all starting at the same time?

In regard to my level of skill in these sorts of game, I beat the Afro Ninja escape the.. series without help(although some of those took some time!)

Don't give any hints (for me, anyway) I may get back to this when I get time. First impressions are that there seems to be multiple puzzles to solve instantly, and it's a bit overwhelming.

Good work on the graphics, btw.

i enjoyed it a lot, and yes it was hard. I was hoping that when I finished it there was more than a simple dialog box at the end stating I had won. A little anticlimactic.

Excellant Game

I finished! Typo at the end by the way, you had beacuse, it should be because. I'll assume you updated, because I didn't get any ol' lame dialogue box. :D

Jolly hard game, recommend to whoever is reading this.

IF YOU HAVEN'T BEATEN THE GAME, DON'T READ IN SPOILER TAG! (mild spoiler within)

What 3d rendering program did you use? It looks really good.

Thank you :). I make the models in Google Sketchup, and then I render using V-Ray. You install it as a plugin. You can add lights, reflections and change 'camera' settings. (As if you were using a real camera). There's a 30-day free trial if you want to try it.

Tried it out! I got the ice cube and the paper and then punched the paper and now I am stuck! Too tough for me, but still a good game. Graphics are nice. Sketchup can do some amazing things.

Good job overall!
