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.

Dear Jeroen_Sol,

Your comments are greatly appreciated here in the Land of Boxes. Another land, an "expansion", if you will, is not completely off the cards. We will be sure to keep you informed of any future developments.

Sincerely,

Dear Pokemaniac,

Thanks a bunch! I've just finished the game, and I really liked it! It was rather short, though. It be great if you'd make Think outside the box 2 with 10 worlds or so? I'd be happy to help with anything! (just no scripting or spriting, I suck at that XD):D Great game!

sincerely,
Jeroen_Sol
Dear Jeroen_Sol,

You seem to have missed the most obvious solution, involving using a twig as a lockpick. I hope you enjoyed your visit to our world! Please come again!

Dear Pokemaniac,

I'm stuck. I have all but one solutions. In room 2, I have 2 answers for the trapdoor, and one firey one to the locked door. I've unlocked all hints, and it seems I've already tried everything. Could you give me a hint?

Yours sincerely,
Jeroen_Sol
Really? What happened when you tried?

I tried downloading this game but, alas, it didn't work!

Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed it! Make sure you check out our next world, codename "Intrepid Inspector", when it is opened!

The setting of the game is different, but the type of puzzle is exactly the same. You should give it a go.
Dear calunio,

Really? It doesn't look very similar. Would you recommend it?

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.

Cheers and keep up the great work.

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,

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 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.

Sincerely,
World of Boxes Customer Support
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,

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!
