You are a lonely hiker who had an accident and landed in this test center. The only way you see to get out is to run this test. Nicely, an automatic help program of the labor helps you at some points, but the further you go, the more confusing this strange kind of dream gets... Roccy Laboratories is a short puzzle game we actually made for participating at a contest, but we might plan to expand it after that contest. You play in ego-perspective and have to find the best strategy to reach your target. Everything happens in a kind of research laboratory that gets more and more confusing the further you go. [current version is v.RL.09.12b]

We're happy to announce: -the first full release of Roccy Laboratories -participation at 2010's Crossmedia Festival/Contest -IGN asking us to release Roccy Labs on Fileplanet

Posted by HavocInferno[np] on Oct 7th, 2010

Phew!, after three months of work, we finally made it: we completed the release candidate of Roccy Laboratories. This was a heavy job since we had to deal with various things such as evil or dumb teachers, an old version of C4D or the fact that we wanted to develop a game without any programmers or texture artist. But we tried to solve things as good as possible.

Well, we weren't able to solve the programming side, but we managed to make textures on our own, the modelling side also didn't work that well since C4D (2003 version O_o) isn't suited for exporting meshes to UDK. But we didn't give up! We haven't even thought about giving up since we had to pay the envelope for the things we had to send to - and this is the second thing of the news - the Crossmedia Festival!...well, actually it is more of a contest, but it's called festival, no idea why...I think/hope our participation worked since their website, where you had to fill out a participation form, was broken at a point. So hopefully we'll soon (more or less) give you some new news where we tell you that we won 1st place and are the new princes of reggae - or not.

The last news is about IGN. Jordon Latham from IGN asked us to arrange a co-release on Fileplanet while releasing Roccy Labs on IndieDB. Of course we accepted, though I don't know whether our game is shown on Fileplanet yet. But always feel free to check out Fileplanet's Indie section for Roccy Labs: Fileplanet.com

So if you want to play this game, check out the download section of IndieDB or Fileplanet and enjoy!


Finally!

I didn't get very far cause I was playing at work, but I really like the demo. Its kinda like Half-Life 2 meets Portal. Cool physics puzzles. I can't wait to see more development...
