The Ludum Dare gravy train keeps on rollin'. Predicament by Orangepascal is a back to basics escape-the-room game with lovely pixel art and a story with an unexpected ending. You are a lone survivor who has fallen into a cave and must find their way out if they want to live. But, if you are the only one here, why are there objects already in this cave? Simply move your lone survivor with the [arrow] keys and press [X] to interact with objects.
One of the cool things about Predicament is its minimalism. All the graphics were done in the open-source image editing software, Gimp, which, along with the Ludum Dare competition in general, shows that there is some great under-the-radar talent out there on the interwebs. That being said, there are a few caveats. There are only a few puzzles, and the entire game won't take more than ten minutes to complete, but anyone with a need for a quick escape-the-room fix and a love for stories with ambiguous endings, there is no predicament... just play and enjoy.
