I’ve been focusing on adding as many puzzles and interactions in the game the past few weeks, and I’ve also added new rooms.
So the evolution of the puzzles is from the mundane to the surreal.
So you have a normal closet, where you need to rearrange the clothes according to it’s gradient color. Okay, this is a bit difficult. This idea came from ferdonkers from HitRecord, he wrote:
My closet is filled with shirts. I have so many t-shirts, that every day when I go to pick one out to wear it takes me about three to five minutes just to choose the right one. My sister taught me, when I was in high school, to hang my shirts up in color order. It is quite helpful when trying to match my shirt to my other clothes or even to how I’m feeling each particular day. Let’s say I need a red shirt, I sift through the red shirt section until I find the right shirt for the day. More than 50% of my closet is filled with t-shirts, the rest is made up of fancier clothes that I mostly don’t wear.
Another closet interaction is, you sit in the closet in the dark with only a light. And this idea came from 53mph from HitRecord, he wrote:
In response to the challenge, I can tell you about some moments in my life when I’ve had to confront fears (which for me are demons), and perhaps you can weaponise them.
As a child I suffered from terrible claustrophobia. I hated small rooms, confined spaces, and had a reoccuring nightmare of falling into a hole in the ground that turned into a smooth metal tube which slid all the way into a smooth metal stomach from which I couldn’t escape.
I hated being a victim of my own fears, so I decided to fight fear with acclimitization. I made myself a cubby-hole inside my wardrobe, in which I would sit for hours with nothing but a torch. To get over my nightmare, I used a rolled up yoga mat of my mothers, which I would press up against the wall, then I would squeeze myself into it, arms pressed against my body unable to move, and keep myself there until I could take it no longer. Gradually I got more and more used to it and got over my fear.
Another one is where this anti-character, or this shadow of yourself jumps out. And then when you return the to room scenes, the anti-character now follows you around.
The new room that I added is the bathroom. And you go through the normal routine of using the toilet and brushing your teeth.
The brushing your teeth puzzle is like Simon Says, just follow the direction of the arrows.
Another is looking at yourself in the mirror. In this one, you can just draw on the fog, it’s not really a puzzle that you have to solve, it’s more like a toy.
And of course, you need to take your bath in the bath tub. And there are different scenarios as well in the bath tub, the mundane to the surreal.
Like flooding in an Alice in Wonderland Pool of Tears kind of way.
That’s it so far for these past week.
More puzzles to go! Deadline is also in a month, so… Aja! I can do this~!
