A text adventure, complete with text! However, your keyboard has seen better days. Time to break out some more modern hardware!

Currently comes with a limited set of levels that kinda scale in difficulty. With enough interest I will flesh out this game for a full version!

Made using the Godot 3 game engine.

Level Hints (minor spoilers below!):

  1. This is a tutorial level. Try a bit harder. In case you didn't figure it out already, you click on words to type them in, then press ENTER.
  2. Pay close attention to the hints! They may not seem helpful at face value...
  3. Where'd the help button go? Terrible wordplay and lateral thinking to follow.

Windows (tested): Unzip and run "escapeTheKeyboard.exe".

That was really frustrating! I needed all of the hints.  I had a lot of fun playing it!!!

This is a really fun concept, I'm just super stuck at level two. I've clicked every combo I can think of and am just spinning in frustration circles. Any hints would be lovely, because I'd really like to play through this fully.

Frankly, I'd probably read the rest of the comments for this game, I've given out a whole bunch of hints there.

This game isn't exactly fresh in my mind (I have started a stability/completion update but I've got a lot going on) so I don't remember the solutions that well.

I think the solution to level 2 is stupidly simple, but you need to reveal a certain word before it ends up being possible.


Very puzzling and very creative concept, I loved it.

ok guys, i've been trying to escape room 2 for 24hs now. i've organized a spreadsheet to find all possible combinations between words, but i'm still stuck here. Any extra hints?

the solution is only 6 letters (and a space) long.

i cannot believe i hadnt tried that one before!!! thanks!

ha ha I couldn't get out of room one. I clicked a few things and it said it didn't understand. I bet if I devoted a few more minutes I would figure out the first room


interesting game, I'd like to see more of it

any extra hints for level 3? i think ive exhausted all my ideas and tried them 10 times over


The [spoiler] is not what a normal [spoiler] would look like. Can you make it like a normal [spoiler] again?

any other hints? It's still super hard



The banana is in two halves. What word would you use to make the banana whole?


This was a really good game, wish it was longer!


holy hell this is hard

Like all puzzle games, it's hard until it's not :p

General tip is find all the verbs in the sentences, then try them with everything.

Specific tips have been commented by me all around the place.
