Welcome to the world of Boxes! Please leave one of your dimensions at the door, then come in and stretch your sides. Comfortable? Good. Now, let's get down to the nitty gritty.

Why should you stay in the world of Boxes? Well let me give you a few reasons.


All the brain-busting fun of an adventure game. Prepare to scavenge for leaves, string, CDs, splints and whatever else you can get your greedy... hands?... on to find your way out of whatever room you may be stuck in.


Of course, if your brain gets too busted, there's always an easy way out. The game is about finding the most ways out of each room as possible, but if you get too stuck, you can always just skip to the next room. What's that called? Ah yes. Non-linear.


Amazing character customization. Choose your gender and name! I like the bow, even if I am a male. No-one's judgmental in the world of Boxes!


Face the most fearsome of foes. As you have been known to say, "Jerks. The world's greatest obstacle."


And of course, an absolutely gripping story. Feel the aching heart of a box stuffed down in a dungeon by his or her own parents. Feel the intensity of certain characters' all-caps writing scratching against your eyes. And feel the excitement of a lock finally opened. I warn you, they jump.

Sold yet? Great!

Make sure you install the fonts before playing! If you don't know how to, or if you can't, then you can simply have the 2 fonts open in the background.

It's funny, i'm with a company called "OutsideTheBoxSoftwate".
Dear Vanisher,

What a huge coincidence! Funny how the world works. We do hope you adventure what our company has put together!

To whom it may concern,

Our letters now come with pretty backgrounds!

This reminds me o Boxley. I'll play this too.

Btw, best gameprofile background ever.
I'm both stuck and bugged.

I got to solutions to the first door, and got the second. With two solutions to the second, got the third. With 2 solutions to the third... nothing. What am I supposed to do?

Also, I tried a new solution to the door with the CD guy, I couldn't find a new one, and a did one I had already done. The game said I had already done that, some music started and... nothing else. I couldn't move or do anything. Game stopped.

I'm afraid all that's left is to find the other exits- it's not a very big world.

So sorry for this! This world never got properly bug-tested(it was made in 3 weeks), so there are many bugs. However, most of them are known, and written in the "Bug!" section of this profile. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Btw, best gameprofile background ever.

We try!

So the game has no ending? Nothing happens even if you find all the solutions?
Dear calunio,

Sorry for any misunderstanding! There IS an ending, if you find all solutions. If you get stuck, contact our director("Pokemaniac") through private mail.

We hope you have enjoyed what you have seen.

Sincerely,
World of Boxes Customer Service
I love it how the background destroys the ads.
Dear Mary 4D,

We here at the World of Boxes don't see the advertisements normally, so we can not see what damage we have caused. We do hope it is hilarious though!

Dear Customer Service,

Let me give you a visual aid then:
EDIT: W, when the fuck did this turn into thst picture? Kinda funny.

Yours truly,
Mary van 4D
Dear Mary 4D,

That happens everywhere for us. Maybe it's a disease and we've passed it on?

P.S. Your letter-writing skills are impressive.

World of Boxes Customer Support
I don't get this ad problem here. Unfortunately.

Dear World Boxes people.
This game is a lot of fun, but I find it to be too slow. Messages are slow, choices are slow, animations are slow, everything is slow. Plus, I'm missing my ending. But overall the idea is great.
Dear calunio,

You are the first to have a problem with the speed.

...

Which is probably a sign of your skills of observation.We have seen this problem from the start. Although to be honest we don't see the broblem with the text speed(it's the fastest it goes), we understand using items is a very drawn out process. If we'd had more technical knowledge, this could and would have been averted.

But we are happy you liked the game in spite of this!

Sincerely,
World of Boxes Customer Service
Hi, interesting concept. I just posted a short review of it over at IndieReview, if you're interested:

Dear miaowheretotalktopokemaniac,

The quality of names has seen a sharp increase as of late. We here at the World of Boxes hope this trend continues.
