A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

End of File is a first person 'perspective' puzzle game. The emphasis is on observation and exploration. The world, an abstraction of a broken piece of software that you are attempting to traverse and understand.

It was developed as a student project at the Victoria University of Wellington as part of one of our courses. After the course some of us spent a little more time adding a bit more polish so the game could be released to the public.

While we refer to it as a prototype the game is feature complete, just lacking a few optional features. When developing the game we came up with many concepts that we simply had no time to implement in the timeframe of our course. We would love to revisit the game and rebuild it bigger, better, and longer. If we do depends on feedback and interest from people who play it.

Play the game, tell us what you think, what we can improve, or if you'd like to see us expand/rebuild it. We already have tons of personal notes about what we want to improve in a rebuild, but to ensure we don't miss anything, all feedback is taken into consideration.

Install instructions

Unzip, and run executable.

Should run on almost any system as the game is fairly resource lite.

Mouse and keyboard controls.

Undocumented screenshot support:

Press 'p' to save screenshots to the game data folder. Screenshot numbering is reset when the game is, older screenshots may be overwritten, so take care to copy/save them elsewhere after playing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you aren't seeing the edge rendering as seen in the above screenshots at all, your GPU/Drivers do not support required features, and the game is then unplayable since you can't see anything. This case is rare, but can be found on some integrated chipsets, be aware.
