Scriptwelder is the best.

To help people out:

Use the data pad's security camera functions in areas where murders happened, excluding the bridge.

I would really like to play this game, I was so excited when I saw this posted.

Unfortunately, every time I enter the lab I become trapped in there. I've tried restarting, clearing my cookies, and on a different browser. No joy. To complete this game you need to be able to enter and leave the lab at least once at the beginning, and I am not able to do that.

Also, when I put things in the centrifuge, when I chose the option to remove everything from the centrifuge, those ingredients simply disappear rather than returning to my inventory. Not awesome when I'm trapped in a room and cant re-collect anything from the rest of the ship.

I hope these issues are looked at soon, as I said, I'm excited to play this game. I hope that soon I'm able to.

Excellent game. Don't escape seems to be shifting through various horror tropes. Can't wait for the next one if ever.

Although...

I'm not too happy you had to kill yourself for the best ending. But I suppose it's why the game is still called "DON'T ESCAPE" and the clue for what you had to do ultimately.

A subtle thing that I noticed is the 'Armor Games' intro is muted in Scriptwelder's games. I really appreciated that! The very loud clanging swords have always been quite jarring to me when they appear in all of the other Armor Games.

I noticed that it runs better if you go 'offline' after the game is loaded.

Perhaps the website's ads/activity is slowing the game down. If you are able try that it should help.

You can drop the contamination level at the end of the game:

Toss the crystal you coughed up into the crystals in the isolation room. There are hidden crystals.

One is outside. Enter the airlock, decompress, open the outside door and go outside. Once you get outside, open the tether panel and attach the tether, then go to the wreckage. Click on panels and you can find another crystal. Tossing this crystal and the crystal you coughed up brought the contamination level down to 40%, implying there are more hidden crystals I've left to find.

I've found one, there should be two more?

Reply

Oh No!

Someone on the ship is contaminated and killing everyone who could it be? *looks at title*

Great game in seriousness, puzzles were intuitive, music was suspenseful, had a blast even if the "twist" is less of an out-of-the-blue surprise and more like a toddler-hiding-behind-the-curtains surprise.

Do the other things in the 3D printer do anything at all?

lag?? game drags like games of olden days and you struggle to move the mouse. Can't imagine how one plays with lesser computer or slower ISP..

Another "ending":

By placing the bomb in the power core, and detonating it by using the pad in the escape pod, you will automatically use the pod the moment the ship explodes.

Jamilworm July 26, 2015 10:51 AM

After almost one full play through I just couldn't take the lag anymore. If it were smooth then i would have enjoyed playing through several times and trying to find the different endings. What a shame.

Reply

On Windows 7 and Chrome. Game runs perfectly fine for me. Not sure why.

Back to the game, I feel like it's not as good as the previous games. The plot is a lot weaker, as there wasn't an obvious goal or direction, compared to the other two games, where you at least had a grasp of what you should be doing ("don't escape").

At one point in the game, the only thing stopping me from using the escape pod was the central theme of the game. Only by checking the comments here did I realise the next step was

using the security cameras on each dead crew member

, which wasn't particularly intuitive in my opinion, and could have done much better by dropping some hints. Making the protagonist seem like he cares, for one.

Furthermore, the workshop items were rather vague, but maybe it was intended? I still don't know if most items are useless or have some obscure use.

Lastly, the time management wasn't done as well as the 2nd game, since I had plenty of time to spare despite making a handful of mistakes. Ditching it altogether for something else might have been better (easier said than done, I know).

Anyway, that's my 2 cents. Really expected more from Script Welder.

I was also having trouble with the lag, but I noticed a simple way to solve it. After the game loads, take it offline. That is, disconnect from the internet (if you can). It solved the problem for me almost immediately.

Paula July 26, 2015 1:19 PM replied to Nickyh

I think the lag might be related to the ads on the website. I'm just curious, do you use ad-blocker for chrome? I did before, but haven't been recently.

I was making real progress until I decided to restore the security cam footage and watch it, now I cannot stop watching it -- seems to be no exit.

fuzzyface July 26, 2015 2:41 PM

The lag is likely to the ads. Get an adblocker then the game works flawlessy. (Yes don't lecture me how evil this is for websites that need support, but while advertisment industry just can't stop eating tons of CPU/RAM for flash animations, they have it coming)

Michael, how do you find out what the current contamination level is?

Kyttynjirr July 26, 2015 3:45 PM replied to jcfclark

jcfclark, the footage doesn't auto-forward -- you have to click through it by finding hotspots within the footage. I just had to move my cursor around the screen til I found them.

So I got stuck and had to refer to the walkthrough, but I still don't understand how you'd know

which items to combine in the centrifugal mixer. I analyzed them all, but the results are meaningless to me.

for the centrafuge...

there's a paper on the table. says.. x+y+z= combo 1. WARNING z+y+x=combo 2. You analize the components and do simple math to figure out what part should be what

I found this a very enjoyable game. Difficulty was about right - it took me about 7-8 plays to get all of the achievements without help. Ironically the part where I was stuck longest was that I didn't realize I had to

flip the switch in the dark room.

The horror was well done too - the room with the flickering light creeped me out every time I had to go through it.

The only part I thought unintuitive was the order of the achievements. Wouldn't humanity finding out what happened be the best solution, in case this problem was ever encountered again? The decompression achievement was the last one I found, incidentally.

Never noticed any lag either, but I do use adblockers. As a balance between making sure game sites are paid and stopping ad problems, I'll suggest my approach. I use adblock but not the block lists. I just block ad sources for ads that are annoying, offensive, or problematic as I come upon them. If more people allowed benign ads while blocking irritating ones, I think the ad makers would respons and we's all see fewer bad ads.

There's a paper on the desk telling you the combinations for each formula. To determine what goes into each, look at the analysis and determine what compounds will give you the right number of each symbol.

I don't think the other items have any use.

Tried getting the

flux stabilizer

thinking it might help fix the navigation system.
But no luck.

Was really hoping for some easter eggs there!

Nickyh July 28, 2015 9:48 AM replied to Paula

Pretty sure I paused Adblock prior to playing, as I usually do. Perhaps the ads aren't affecting me because I'm not in the US, so a different set of ads is targeting me.

I still think you should be able to drink the disolvent or put it on the pancakes.

I'm on windows xp and I'm running smoothly.

I think this should have a horror tag or something like it. Not everyone appreciates these sorts of games! Thanks.

I'm having a terrible time with the Hull Breach achievement. I almost wonder if I've somehow locked myself out of getting it. I've tried

tossing both crystals into the lab and blowing it up, but from there my only option is to wait for the escape pod to be rescued, which doesn't seem to do the trick.

Reply

Whoops. Power of the Post! Turns out all I had to do was

be IN the lab on blowing it up.

Nice to see there's a slightly better ending than

nobody ever learning what happened.

JohnTFS October 6, 2015 7:11 PM replied to Revvy

A couple things to consider regarding the various endings:

From the second you wake up in the airlock, you're dead. There is no cure. The only real question is "Can I stop this thing from killing even more people?"

If you simply Decompress, the Warsaw arrives and they all die.

If you use the Escape Pod, you are "rescued" by the Warsaw at which point they (and you) all die.

If you trigger a Hull Breach, the wreckage is taken to a secret base to study. Given how infectious the crystal is, it's a pretty safe bet that in studying/recreating/finding more of it, many more people will die.

The Lost in Space combined with the Decontamination ending is the only one that eliminates all possibility of immediate further contamination and forestalls the possibility of others researching/seeking the crystals.

Reply

Hull Breach is best ending IMO , because in it world will know these crystals are dangerous. In other endings there is risk , that more crystals could be found by others and all rebegins.
