A downloadable #Walking simulator for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Out of the Game is essentially the Inception of video games, with lots of game-within-a-game madness. It takes place within a small dorm room inside a video game that you have to figure out how to escape. Littered around the room are various objects you can interact with and games that you can play, in which you may manage to find the keys that you need to escape.

Out of the Game is created for a month, by Shitao Fan.


"It’s great fun discovering and experimenting with the various objects in the room and there are some great little surprises throughout."

How do I activate the ceiling fan?

EDIT: You activate the fan by collecting all of the keys.

I'm always a sucker for meta bullshit so this one is right in my wheelhouse. However, I think a little bit more attention to user experience (quitting easily, etc.) is always welcome even in exercises like this.

The Linux version in Xorg is unplayable. In Wayland mode shows a big mouse pointer on the screen

Linux version of the game is unplayable.

I Love this game. It's so weird and cool. I even get jump scared once. 


this is one of the best indie games I have ever played.

Gave it a go...


This was actually very nice, did not expect the fan, I recorded the whole thing but I highly reccomend to whoever reads this to play it for themselves, it'll take you bout 15-20 mins and its completely free.

Would love to see a more complicated/ extended version if at all possible.

wow i really like this game. it's fun to see that you like the exact same games as i do. Ive got the same posters :)


Hello, I just finished your game, and had to write a quick review.

First, let me say that i really liked it ! It's quit intuitive (maybe except for the poster and 'Out of the game' game (lol) thing, but it's not important to progress so it's fine) and i like the fact that you have to discover the game by yourself : no direct indications, no hints.

I had only one little bug (when standing near the table, i was moving backward for no reason), but overall I loved the concept of the game !

Bonus point for the Matrix ref in the end ;) !

Hi.Thanks for your review! It means a lot to me. Actually the hint is behind the poster but you need to flip them by dragging the right mouse (Guess it is not well design so most of the players did not find it). I’ll try me best to fix the bug. Glad you like it!

I felt the same abritrary moving-backwards movement too, although it didn't annoy me for once.

Hi there, I had an issue with the game, around a minute or so into the game, it crashes. I feel that you made a pretty good game but I hadn't had a chance to play it for more than a minute.

Hi! Thanks for your kind suggestion. Did you try different version like Win64 or Win32? Any further question please let me kbow.


Very unique and cool. Was a bit confused in spots but made it through eventually.


I have a deja vu. I swear I spent one night in some similar room with THAT high placed bunk bed at my friend's apartment. Very interesting game! Well if you need an audio guy for a jam then check out my portfolio

This game jus kept me confused all the way throughout 😭 great game tho, had fun playing it and eventually solving the puzzles!! Good work :)


Played your game in a little indie romp. This was intresting I had fun figuring out the mechanics. I hope you enjoy the video I made :)

Your game starts at 7:28

Hey thanks for putting so much time into this! I really appreciate the awesome video here!

This game was very interesting and entertaining.

Hi, mate! Thank you so much for your video! I like your commentary. It is very funny and emotive! haha!  I would say you are very very talent to go through this game just within 10 minutes!!! I was expecting that would be longer. 

Congratulation for the sucessfully "escape". Actually there are something behind the posters when you sit on the chair facing the laptop and Pong arcade, and the coffee on the desk are interactable! 

If you can see what is behind the poster and then play the game just as you have never played before, the whole game will make more sense;) But anyway, thank you so much for this video! Appreciate!

You're the best ShitaoFan!! Please keep me posted on your future projects.

No Linux version? :o Also, this game was not made in 3 hours, right? :D


Hi, I just uploaded the Linux version. Thanks for the kind reminding.True, it cost me more than 3 hours but it still mathchs most of the features of Jam rule, right? :D

The jam doesn't have strict rules, so yeah, you're good! :)


Please don’t tag your game for Ludum Dare unless you made it for Ludum Dare. Thanks!

Thanks for your kind reminding. Sorry for the mistagging.

Hi I really like your game, I'd love to interview you about it for my university assignment . Can I have your email to send you my questions

Hi Mirvat. I am glad you like it. Here is my email :

strange game but cool

HI, Thank you very very much for this video. I am appreciated for your patience to finish this game though it isn't supposed to be this way to "escape" the room due to the bug. The posters are able to flip back when you hold your right mouse, only when the camera fixed after you clicked on the chair in front of the laptop and  Pong Arcade. Sorry for the bad UI design. Now I realized it should include more visual guide to players. But thank you very very much again. I hope you enjoy the game. You are very welcome to play again cause it should to be more funny after you see what is behind the poster!

this bug but I believe that part of the game, but I would leave changing bugs as a possible final alternative of the game .. ok we will play again .. you have made a great idea of the game ... we see particular study of the fourth dimension of the player ... excellent idea ..
