F.A.Q.

What's the game like?

Gameplay is broken up into Story and Puzzle sections.

Story sections play out like a visual novel. Sit back, enjoy the narrative, and help the main character make decisions.

Puzzle sections require the player to solve a riddle to proceed. Don't worry — there's a hint system in place to prevent you from getting stuck or to help you breeze by them if riddles aren't your thing.

What are the controls?

For the most part, the game is a simple point-and-click affair. Click to advance through text and interact with puzzles. Some puzzles require the use of a keyboard.

You can use the scroll wheel or arrow keys to view previously-read messages.

You can skip through text very quickly by holding Enter.

The game is episodic? How often will you update?

A new episode will be uploaded every Sunday. Episodes are generally 10-20 minutes in length. Think of Exit/Corners like an interactive webcomic.

For the first week of release, a new episode will be available every day (Monday 7/3 - Sunday 7/9).

Be sure to follow us on social media to get up-to-date announcements on new episodes and patches.

How many episodes are there?

There are 30 episodes total. It should be noted that the story is split into two distinct halves. There will be a break between the first and second halves.

Do choices carry over between episodes?

Yes, choices will carry over. Just make sure that you’re using the same browser and that you don’t clear your cache or erase your history.

Even if you close your browser by accident in the middle of an episode, you can resume where you left off by selecting “Resume Suspended Data” from the main menu.

I accidentally erased my data / I’m using a new computer! Can I skip past the chapters I’ve already played?

Yes. On the chapter select screen, press “O”, “P”, “E”, and “N” keys at the same time to display all currently-available chapters. Please note that if you skip directly to a chapter without playing the ones before it, you won’t have any choices to carry over.

The game won’t run for me.

If the game won’t run, contact the official Exit/Corners Twitter account or post on the subreddit. I’ll do my best to troubleshoot and get back to you as fast as I can.

Is there a desktop version of the game?

There is no desktop version of Exit/Corners at this time. I would like to release one at some point, perhaps once every episode has been released. If you’re interested in a desktop version, let me know!

How can I support Exit/Corners?

Though the game is free, there are still ways you can support the project.
First, be sure to give us a follow on social media: currently, that's Twitter and Reddit. This helps more than you know.

If you’re enjoying the game, consider posting about it or telling your friends. More than anything, I just want people to play Exit/Corners; if you could get just one more person to play, I would be ecstatic.

Keep your eyes peeled for more ways to support Exit/Corners in the future!
