Hope you’re all managing through these tough times.
Lock downs have been pretty rough for all of us, no doubt, and I’m sure inspiration hasn’t exactly been easy.
I used to commute 1 hour into work and 1 hour back via the train.
That used to give me an isolated 2 hour window of creative outlet.
I would use that time to create games and side projects without any distraction.
Being a father of 2, working and home schooling in between has proved tricky.
I had an itch to create something and after researching lots of ideas I settled on a text based adventure game.
After spending 1 hour a night for 6 months on and off, I finally created something that I’m proud to show – Blank.
Blank is a unique escape room, text based adventure game with puzzles that will challenge you to the core (and I’m not lying about that last part).
I designed the game with just text and sound and most effort was spent into plot and story (which I re-wrote at least 8 times throughout).
As an MVP, I released the game on Android to get feedback. If you would like to test on iOS – there is a web version you can play below
I hope you enjoy playing Blank 🙂
