It's a few yeas since I launched my last game, Adventure Island. That took me five years to complete, and I was unsure whether I would make another game, but just over two years ago I had an idea for a new first person, point-and-click puzzle adventure. Ever since discovering first person adventures (Myst and Riven were the first true adventure games that I played) I've wanted to make one myself.

The Clockwork Labyrinth is a free puzzle adventure. The idea for the game came from a television documentary about clockwork automata, and from this starting point I developed a surreal mix of Steampunk, Gothic, ancient civilisations and fairground kitch. The game's focus is on its puzzles, which I hope offer a broad range of challenges, from simple fun games to more complex, interconnected puzzles.

A mysterious message on social media lures you into a weird underground complex to rescue a damsel in distress. You must pit your wits against the labyrinth and find your way to the enigma at its heart?

The Clockwork Labyrinth can now be downloaded from the Adventure Game Studio database here, and I've posted a few screenshots below. I've also put together a short video trailer which can be viewed here.

The Metal Maze, in which every turn takes you to another puzzle.

The Caves of Confusion, where an ancient mechanism thwarts your progress.

The Cryptic Crypt, a catacomb of Gothic mysteries.

The Museum of Curiosities, a celebration of eccentricity and the bizarre.

I'm glad to see a 1st person game made with AGS.
I was wondering why the downloaded file is called Clockwork Labyrint 16bit v1.zip
Does it use 16-bit color or does the "16bit" refer to 16-bit code?

The standard for AGS games is 16-bit colour (currently, at least). It is possible to use 32-bit colour, and I have compiled both versions as a few of the testers had difficulty with the 16-bit graphics on their newer graphics cards. The 32-bit version can be downloaded from my personal website (www.elenheart.me.uk), but I've posted the standard 16-bit version to the AGS database (with a note about the 32-bit version in the included manual). Using this version makes for better backward compatibility.

Thank you, Elentgirl, for the interesting game. I got to the fusebox puzzle and I am stuck.
Wondering if there will be any hints in the future. I spent an hour on this puzzle already!
