The Polaroid (Christopher Ng, Conrad Fay, Michael Lee, Kenneth Ng, Spencer Lee, 2016) submitted to Ludum Dare 36 (August 26th-29th, 2016)
Inside a mysterious room with no door, you seek a way to get out. A set of polaroid photos on the wall hint at the story of this room’s past. With only an old polaroid camera in hand, you must solve the puzzle of each photo by matching them to the scene.
The Polaroid is a puzzle game that connects the past and present through a supernatural take on the polaroid-within-a-polaroid fad.
