Emily Enough: Imprisoned

leave a comment »

You play Emily Enough, a psychotic heiress who reacts rather badly to a birthday disappointment. Now you’re sentenced to spend the rest of your days in the Claxochem Center for Mental Wellness. Oh Emily, how will you get out of this jam?

Explore the wellness center, make friends and enemies with various patients and staff, look for a way to escape, and perhaps commit a murder or two. The art, music, and dialogue are all playful and well done. The story is dark and tongue-in-cheek. It’s not a game meant to scare, but to appeal to those who enjoy a morbid sense of humor.

Navigation can be a bit of a pain, at times you’ll know where you can exit an area, but might have trouble finding just the right place to walk to take you out. All the command buttons are hidden at the top of the screen, you just need to mouse over it to bring them into view. You can also cycle through the actions by right clicking.

I’d like to note that this game was my introduction to the Adventure Game Studio engine, and inspired me to make my own adventure game. But calling the thing I made a game would be extremely generous. It’s more accurately called the room I made that has a few things you can click on. Still, it was a fun and rewarding experience and I encourage anyone who’s ever thought about making their own adventure game to give it a try.
