IT IS DONE! My game, "The Tower Experiment" is complete and you can download it now! Please please please go and try the game! It is free. I would love to see your reactions.

You are a scientist and it is another day on the job. You have been selected to take part in "The Tower Experiment". This experiment involves navigating mazes, solving puzzles by finding keys, pressing switches, solving repeating rooms, surviving against dangers, and moving through teleporters. You may even have to use a jet pack!

This game does not involve combat. You will be going through 4 levels with each having 5 floors/sections to finish. You will be assigned helper bots to assist you further in the rooms.

This game was a labor of love and was originally a whole different game idea. If interested to see the behind the scenes of this game's development, a video will be coming out soon on the C.J. Cuypers Productions YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4sYXcoXwYlO2L49SO5Z50Q)

I hope you enjoy this small game! Please leave feedback, negative or positive!

I played the demo two days ago. I liked it as a basic maze puzzle game. I like the chill music. I like piano others don't. I wish GG had a more robust sound system. I like that the maze is bright. Download whole game and ran it. It chrashed out twice to windows no error message after rounding first cornor of maze level one where robot says this is a basic maze. Ran again and it worked but I got trapped by robot pinned on lvl 5. Could not move. Is there a way to turn off robot collision? At this point I load the save game from slot one. I fell into a lava pit and was eaten by demons! You probaly want a game release without the first save file already used. I save my stuck game in the second save file and reloaded it. Robot was gone but I was still stuck. I will try again and update my review. Replacing scientists with robots would look better. The tower view thru the hallway is amazing. The creepy things set a tone for the monsters later but consider a version removing all the gory stuff for people who like mazes but not monsters. Will try again. I do like the keys and buttons. I also like the intro and over look of the game. Good job.

Thanks for playing it. Ya, I know it has some issues with crashing and the robot getting in the way. I tried all I could to fix those things. I'm still novice at Game Guru but I'm hoping with Game Guru Max, some of the annoying quirks of the engine will be sorted out.

I wanted to add these 2 videos about my game. One is a short documentary on my journey to getting this project done. The other is a playthrough of what the game was originally going to be called "The Never Ending Room".

This way you guys can have more context to this project.

hey thank you for that documentary. it´s really helpful to see how you work and fail and then change your idea and finish it. inspires me to continue with my own little pet project.
