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.
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.
Exit/Corners is now complete, but was originally episodic. Think "interactive webcomic". Each of the game's chapters was its own episodic release.
Be sure to follow us on social media to get up-to-date announcements on new episodes and patches.
There are 29 episodes total; there were originally 30 planned, but I managed to fit it all into 29. There's also a Question/Answer thread on reddit to clear up any loose ends.
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.
Yes. On the chapter select screen, if you have no save data, there's an extra option at the bottom of the screen that can help you get caught up. 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. You can re-make your choices by using the "Catch-Up Tool" (in the Extras menu).
If the game won’t run, contact the official Exit/Corners Twitter account or post on the subreddit/Discord server. I’ll do my best to troubleshoot and get back to you as fast as I can.
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!
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, Reddit, and Discord (discord.gg/HA8Vtzk). 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!
