Get Me Outta Here! is a Coco 3 only game designed and programmed by Tim Thayer along with his brother Paul. Based on the popular "Escape Room" games of recent years, the goal is to select and manipulate objects on screen, solving various little puzzles and pictograms along the way, in order to escape from the room that you are trapped in. This requires you to investigate everything and likely write some things down, as some clues disappear after you do something with some objects, but you will need to reference something that was on them visually. The game is written mostly in BASIC for the Coco 3, but has some BASIC patches to make things easier, and some ML subroutines (including one that disallows listing the program, making it impossible for the casual player to cheat), that came from a variety of public resources, or by Paul. As far as I am aware, this is the first Coco game of this genre to exist, and hopefully we will see more. Once you get used to the style of gameplay, it is quite challenging and fun.
