A Box Full Of Joy - Surreal Pixel-art Horror Adventure

A Box Full Of Joy - Surreal Pixel-art Horror Adventure

It's a weird pixel art horror game about this guy named Frank who descends down the levels of hell, looking for his wife, I guess.

I wouldn't try to hard to understand the game because author wanted to pay the tribute to David Lynch and Alejandro Jodorowsky, and you don't want to try to understand their movies. The worlds these guys create are usually surrealist and metaphorical, with lots of blood and killing scenes. And that's the part the author wanted to capture and bring into this game.

Guy named Frank is still bleeding from the arm when he enters the bar. Probably a gunshot wound. Very good start in the opening scene. He's looking for his girlfriend, a hot tall blonde.

After taking two pills from a guy in the dancing room, Frank gets inside an elevator to be returned to where we started. With one tiny difference: now, there's a burnt body with a stupid grim laying there beside him.

Anyway, the point is that every time Frank gets inside that elevator he's been returned to the beginning. Here's the scene after he kills the blonde girl:

After picking the garbage from the bar, Frank returns home to find blood all over the place, and I mean literally all over it. His wife is alive but the kid's gone. I mean, it's still there.

Anyway, after killing the beast as per the guy's instructions, Frenk kills himself and descend down into ... not sure what. And that's probably the end of this strange game.

After watching Markiplier's video, I see that his game ended a little bit differently, but he was too confused about the ending..But, as he said, the game is weird enough that it might end like this. In the end, I don't know what happened, is that I (Frank) did something bad for what I was sent to hell. I don't know if I killed my wife, I don't know if my wife killed the kid, no clue whatsoever...

From a technical point of view, the game's been created in Construct 2 tool and exported as html5. I think we must give credits to this guy at least for making one of the weirdest horror games we had a chance to check out on darkhorrorgames.com, right?
