Christmas countdown

Hi everybody!
Today we want to challenge ourselves! Can we make a top-notch escape game in just 10 days?!
Most likely NO (because some of the game’s making process is not up to us, for example proofreading and voice overs), but we’re still gonna give it a try.
We already wrote the game’s plot, so now it’s time for us to work on the game’s graphics. The puzzles will relate to the theme of the game and we hope that the game’s ending will leave your jaw on the floor.
We will be updating this post during the next 10 days, so you’ll be able to follow our progress!

Other than that, CrazyDad will be ready in a week or so 🙂

That’s all for today, we now have less than 10 days to create a spectacular escape game, the clock is ticking!

P.S. – The escape game will take place inside an arcade, so please share with us your favorite classic arcade games (or any other very old games that you used to like, such as DOS, Nintendo or any other classic platform).

Updates – Day 1:

We now have sketches for all three rooms of the game. It’s not very impressive right now, but we will be adding lighting & shadows and more details, so the final result will look great!

Updates – Day 2:

So here it is, our first background! We’re working on the 2nd background as we speak, and the game characters too.

Updates – Day 3:

Another day went by and we have a new background! Also, the protagonist’s character is ready. In contrast to mozt of our games, in this one you’ll be seeing his back for most part.

    Ahahah interesting challenge, you’re always full of work! Don’t push yourself too much, we all appreciate your dedication! 😉 By the way good luck and thanks for the games! 😀

    • Thank you very much andrea! Don’t worry, we’re taking good care of ourselves 🙂

  • That’s a tough task to complete but don’t worry we are here for your support 😉

    You can do it Carmel Games team! If you’ve not already do so, make yourselves a DSL to describe the game programming that you can “compile” into Flash (as well as output scripts from, and do some automated flow checks)… I remember a video a long time ago showing your workflow and I’m sure you’ve tightened it up since then 😉

    • Hi Nat,

      We are indeed working with similar methods to those you described, thank you! 🙂

  • Aura

    All the best!! I’m sure you can do it…………..

  • Jenny

    Great idea! I would love anything with Yoshi in it. 😀 Good luck!

  • hi, great challenge, hope you’ll succeed.

    as for arcade/old games: commander keen, double dragon, bubble bobble, pinball, donkey kong, pac-man, tetris, frogger, space-invaders, snake, street fighter.

    • These are some very cool games Uri, thank you!

  • Umta-ta

    My favourite arcade game was Track and Field. When I was at school one of my classmates was the son of the local landlord. Going to his house, the pub, was amazing because his Mum would give us a bag of 10p pieces each and we’d spend the time on the arcade machines.

    • That sounds really nice James! It reminds me of my childhood and playing at the arcades with my friends. I did not know Track and Field but I played some very similar games to this one 🙂

  • Umta-ta

    btw does that mean we have to wait 10 more days until there’s a new game ???

  • Krissie

    Zombies Ate My Neighbors! Used to love playing that on Sega with the son of my mom’s roommate when we got home from school every day.

    • I also played it! It was such a cool and fun game! 😀

  • Joel Saltmarsh

    my favorite ever arcade game was digdug. man, i loved that so much… i sucked at donkey kong though… heh heh…

    • I am not familiar with that one, it looks very similar to Digger 🙂

  • Thank you for sharing your favorite games with us!
    One of our favorite arcade games was The Simpsons, released by Komani in 1991.

  • John Jones

    One of my favorites was Missile Command which was waaayyyy back there.

    if you can create such an amazing game in 10 days than i would always like to give you a deadline of 10 days great effort waiting for VP 8

    • Well for now it looks like we can’t, maybe next time 🙂

  • Swiftie Since 2008

    It’s been 10 days. AHAHAHAHA

    • Mr.Crow

      It depends on timezones really tho while it might be 10 days for you, somewhere theres only 9 days past this post.

      • Swiftie Since 2008

        Well now it has been 11 days. HAHAHAHA I am just so excited lmao.

    • petroa

      Perhaps, they’re only counting weekdays (M-F), and not weekends (S-S). In that case, they would have until December 23.

      • Swiftie Since 2008

        That might be the case. HAHAHAHA

    • Yes, there was a delay, you can read more about it here:

    Was this a situation where something that was bitten off became too much to chew?
