Walkthrough: Deeper Sleep

Have you ever had that nightmare where you think you’re falling off your bed and you wake up screaming louder than a baby piglet in a haunted house? Yeah, uh, us neither. Deeper Sleep is a dreamy escape game that takes you through one late night at the library. It might be a dream, it might be real, but it’s definitely more fun than explaining to your parents why you wet the bed.

Walkthrough: Escape the Bloody Prom

Prom: You’ll remember this night until the day you die. Because that day is today! Escape the Bloody Prom plops you into a school dance gone horribly wrong, more wrong than just the normal awkward sweatiness and teachers trying to dance.

Q&A: Seven2, developers of Expiration Date

Cyog blog

Way back in July, a much simpler time when we all lived in blissful ignorance of what “twerkin’” was, gamers took part in AddictingGames’ first-ever “Create Your Own Game” Game, answering Facebook polls to help shape a game that would actually be created by AddictingGames.  Letting gamers create their own game!? AddictingGames must be a bunch of suckers. WAIT, ADDICTINGGAMES IS US!!

UH OH!  Do we have the game yet?  No?  Another week or so before it’s released?  Uhhhh, dang it.  OK, think, AG, think. Have we shown any concept art yet?  We did?  Crap.  Have we revealed the storyline and title?  We did that, too!?  Geez.  What else can we share before we release the game next week?  Do we have an interview with Seven2, the developers of the game who include creative director Brandon DeLauney, lead designer/animator Justin Baldwin, developers Bradley Baysinger and Keely Honeywell, writer Mark White and designer Zach Grassi?  We do!?  Well, hot dog! What are the odds!?

Here, read this and we’ll get the game to you next week! Promise!


What was your first reaction when you heard what type of game the AG audience picked? 

We laughed, then we panicked. OK, not really. We knew it’d be a challenge to make a game with those parameters, but we also LOVED the challenge of making a game with those parameters. It made us get super-extra creative.

What game ideas were left on the cutting room floor?

At one point, there was a character named Brenda who turned into Bad Brenda and oversaw the post-apocalyptic world’s most popular reality show. But Bad Brenda wanted too much money to appear in the game. She was both bad and rather greedy.

Any must-know tips before playing this game?

Click on everything you can, think outside the box and make sure to take bathroom breaks.

Whose mom was the in-game mom based on?

She was designed to be everyone’s mom and nobody’s mom at the same time. Imagine a normal mom and then make her evil and menacing with a slightly more dated sense of fashion.

Evolution of Your Mom

What was your inspiration for the apocalypse? Does it parallel with other big apocalyptic stories in pop culture?

The game’s apocalypse has some similarities to the ones you’ve seen, but also some cool differences. We were inspired by “The Book of Eli,” “The Road,” “Children of Men,” “Mad Max” and a few ketchup commercials.

Can we expect any Easter eggs in this game?

Does a chicken have lips?

Fill-in & Answer: How much __________ did you drink while making this game?

Water, Diet Coke and badger milk — all in the recommended daily amounts. We can also tell you we’ll definitely be drinking a lot of _________ when the game is completed.



CYOG Update: New Name, Game Screens and Your Mom

In July, AddictingGames held the “Create Your Own Game” game, wherein we made the mistake of asking you lunatics to help us create a game. After what we can only imagine was massive head trauma, you picked an anime escape game starring a tomato fighting Your Mom in the apocalypse. WHUUUUUT???

We’re just crazy enough to make it happen, and this week we’ve got two updates for you.

First, a title!  Much as we wanted to call the game “What Were We Thinking!?!?” we have a much cooler name submitted by a Facebook fan.

And the title iiiiiiiiis: EXPIRATION DATE.

What does it mean!? Exactly.

Next, we have some pics of the game, our produce protagonist and Your Mom (see below). Keep checking back for more details, including a forthcoming release date, because, like we said, we’re actually making this game. God help us.
