An extremely challenging mod which forces players to think outside of the box... in order to get out of the box. Each room is a unique puzzle, and is always full of surprises. Not for players who aren't up for an intense, claustrophobic experience.

As July brings an end to school, August brings the end of development.
It is with great pleasure I announce the official release date for Escape The Room - Friday the 13th
ERmod has become much more than initially intended. It is now truly the intense and claustrophobic experience I have advertised. It's been a good long time in development, I know you will all be pleased with the results.



Some highlights to look forward to:

-A plot!
-Voice acting!
-Many more challenges!

Attached is a screen shot of the opening scene.

Thank you all for playing!

It was okay, but I got stuck on the kitchen level and just couldn't figure it out, if someone could help that would be great.

What I noticed was that there needed to be more to tell what was useful and what wasn't. There should have been much less physics props as that would have made it a lot easier. They kept getting in the way and I had to suicide a few times.

I had actually written out a really long review but chrome crashed and I can't get it back, so I can't be bothered writing it all out again. But my main point is listed in the comment.

Grab the meat cleaver and use it on the rope, make sure the tin basket lands upright and grab the red button in the tin basket and bring it to the oven, it should now leak gas if placed on the oven, unplug the electric cord from the wall and bring it over to the gas, now stand back, the explosion is powerful enough to send the tables flying :D

just played through this and it was not bad.

PROs: progressively better mapping from room to room. you should have revamped the early rooms to reflect your improving mapping skills. my favorite map was the office map.

CONs: this is not as much of a puzzle mod as it is a "pixel hunt", ie look for a key to proceed. there was not a lot of critical thinking going on here.

overall, not a bad effort. i look forward to seeing some more cognitive puzzle-solving in the next episode, as well as more of the good mapping from the office room i talked about earlier.

Very fun. However, i do prefer finding ways to use items as opposed to simply scouring the map looking for a tiny key. IMO solving puzzles is more fun than searching for items.

2 Great hours.
Even though:
The new puzzles were pretty easy.
Much shorter than what i expected
The cave part has a sudden FPS drop when you move.
The last map is very buggy. (Props are being pushed inside the train from the outside, the "thing" that u need to advance is hidden too good, u can climb out of the map and most of the times you spawn into a train chair, which forces u to suicide until u succeed or to use noclip.)
On the other hand:
The puzzles were great fun, very well built.
The sphere in most of the rooms was very spooky, well built too.
The puzzles werent too hard and wouldnt make u say "OMG ITS BUGGED!"
The background voices helped to the mood of the game.
Summary:
Graphics - 10. Nothing else to say. Very well built.
Sound - 7.0 You can barely hear something through the game. And most of the times you also cant hear your captor.
Gameplay - 9.0 Simply great. The maps are fun and satisfying after solving them.
Average: 8.6
Cant wait for ERMod 2 :D
