Get Out Fast - Text Adventure with Touch GUI

Get Out Fast: The House is an Old School Styled Text Adventure with a Touch GUI used for interaction.

- a universal app, taking advantage of the iPad's extra screen size
- features slide-out panels for movement, object interaction and action updates
- has three difficulty settings and saves high scores
- the font type / size are configurable
- includes a separate tutorial map that introduces you to the 'villain' of the highest difficulty

This is a demo of the interface using a testing map.
(It's a bit faded due to the orientation. The screen caps will display the sharpness.)

iPad screen caps

iPhone screen caps

Coming soon.

Interesting. I generally like the interface better than other GUIficiations of text games I've seen before (I'm talking about the unholy monster that is RAGS).

The drawer seems to work well for inventory, but somehow feels too clumsy for movement. Might work better if it was a move button near the lower corner, touching it brings up a radial menu of move options and the user can choose direction with a flick? Perhaps the freed up right drawer could be used for NPC interaction?

Just throwing out ideas, here.

The colour palette and icon design is, well, not great. But at least the comic sans got yanked before release.

It's funny you actually make that comment about the movement buttons.
Originally there was a Move button that kicked up a transparent panel with move buttons, but the feedback I received had me change it.
Also the color palette was also altered based on feedback (which was very positive after changing it).
I take all feedback as positive and process it. Thanks.

Releasing a new Get Out Fast (:The Test) game on Friday (1/11/13) and it will be completely free (no ads or iap or annoying prompts).

It's a completely different adventure map.

Feedback and suggestions are strongly welcome.

I really like this style of game! The graphics look a bit jerky though...when do you think we'll see more updates?
