A downloadable game for Windows

GMTK 2021 Rating:


You are trapped inside an office and you don't know how you got there. All you see is a contract in front of you and when you break it, it effects the world around you. You explore the seemingly abandoned office in hopes of finding your escape.


This game is an Escape Room puzzle adventure about finding contracts in an office. Each contract is connected to two game mechanics, one negative, one positive. Navigate and explore this strange office before your time runs out. Or die trying.

DISCLAIMER: Contractually Bound is an escape room game. It's normal for it to take a lot of attempts to complete it.

GMTK Jam Theme: Joined Together

Contractually Bound fits GMTK Game Jam 2021's theme in two major ways:

  • Each and every contract connects two separate game mechanics together, and splits them apart.
  • You as the player are joined to each contract as they affect you until you break them.

this was really fun <3

Is there any way to enable invert-mouse? This looks neat but I can't play. :(

Well done! this took me a few tries, but was definitely entertaining enough to keep trying... got it in the end! I would happily play a longer, more fleshed out version of this! (At least as long as there was some form of checkpoints - if the levels were particularly much longer than this one, I think I'd start getting a bit mad after dying)

PS [potential spoiler]: is surfing the chairs in the end actually the intended strat? It's what I ended up doing, but I totally didn't expect it to work out lol.

crazy fun, lots of potential here

Love it! i got stuck at a point because i read a contract wrong XD. ill rate 5 5 5

great game

First! and i like the game, it has different endings depending on the contract. I made a video of it. 

Thank you for playing our game!
