"The king is gone" is a puzzle game, about running away. Some doors are blocking the escape path and need to be unlocked to proceed. Each door will give a different benefit, and a combination of them is the key to succeed.

Before opening a door, a puzzle is presented, where pieces of a key have to be rotated and merged together to open the door. The further someone runs, the more difficult the key puzzles become.

The available benefits are:

* Green doors increase running speed.
* Purple doors increase lockpicking skills, which makes opening new doors easier
* Brown doors provide no direct benefit, apart from increasing the gap from the chasing enemy.

This game is currently in Alpha. The basic gameplay is implemented, together with most of its features and it needs a lot of polish.

This project is still in development. Feedback is very welcome.

Since the launch of the previous version, there were a few minor issues that needed to be addressed. These are the fixes for this version:

  • The online scoreboard now works on windows. Users can now (optionally) submit their scores and compare with other players. The demo version is using separate scoreboards.
  • Some improvements made to make it easier for users to move the game window around, before it captures the mouse, and ability to “uncapture” the mouse from the title screen.
  • Improved the visuals in the title screen.
  • The game now has a functionality to make it more obvious that there is a time limit.
  • Made the transition from the game to the title menu smooth.
  • Added one extra room, which is the last room the user will encounter on the demo.
