Need to travel back in time, but your DeLorean's transmission's cracked and your flux capacitor's on the fritz? No problem, how's 1993 work for you? In Exposed, a short old-school style point-and-click puzzle adventure from Procedural Activity (01101101, with music by Mathieu Hallouin and artwork by Carduus), you play a bored teenager with a Fonzie-esque pompadour who gets himself into a bit of trouble when he runs afoul of the local mad scientist. The part of this game that will have you feeling like you've gone back in time is the retro pixelart, fun animations, silly music, and irreverent humor, all of which is reminiscent of the classic adventure game, Day of the Tentacle.
You're given a special orb that evolves based on what it interacts with. Your goal is to help your orb become a fully formed creature with hair, eyes, ears, and the rest. Left-click on any object in the room and have it interact with your orb. The trick is to find the right combination of objects in the room, since the wrong combination will evolve your orb into a ghoulish freak of nature. To check your progress or kill any deformed orbs, just click the microscope.
Exposed is not Day of the Tentacle, of course. It was made in under 72 hours for a recent Ludum Dare Jam, and some players will be annoyed by the amount of trial and error involved in getting the right combination, or the lack of a mute option. Still, it offers some great retro fun and for 10 minutes, you'll be transported back to your childhood den next to your Sega Genesis and glossy back issues of GamePro. And, while we're on the subject, I have some pog slammers I could sell you...
