Well, here it is, my first original Flash adventure game...my first adventure game, period. It's very short (more of a "gamette" than a game), has choppy animation in some parts, is overly large, and probably has some bugs that I didn't catch. Still, I hope you enjoy it.

It's the story of a creature created in a secret underground complex that longs to escape to the world above...however, that world is not quite as it seems...

This game is 13 MB, so it will probably take a while to load. Those of you with low bandwidth, beware.

Commenters: Out of courtesy to those who haven't finished the game, please try to not to spoil the ending in your comments. Thanks. UPDATE: For those of you who have finished the game or aren't afraid of extreme spoilers, go here - [link]

Lastly, if you're wondering why the heck this game appeared in your search results, try playing it and your question might be answered.

EDIT 1: Fixed error in intro titles and bug with "claw marks" hotspot.

EDIT 2: Fixed the incredibly not smart mistake with the "Skip to Title Screen" button. It should work now.

EDIT 3: Fixed "Special Features" Button.

EDIT 4: Apparently, DevART won't let me include a link to another webpage in a Flash file, so I removed the "Special Features" button, but added some shortcuts to the outro and credits. Go to the Spoiler Zone for a link to the Special Features page.

Wonder if you've seen the 1994 animated movie "Felidae"; if not, I really recommend it. It somewhat reminds me of "Area 50.5", since it also has sentient cats who can read books and use computers and laboratory pet experiments, but it is actually a 1990s noir thriller (it features cat erotic scene with jazzy soundtrack, murder investigation, and a mysterious religious sect).

I have heard of that movie. I've just never gotten around to watching it. It does sound interesting.

impressive. pretty neat game. the ending was pleasantly unexpected. definitely one of the more polished flash point-and-click-style adventure games I've seen.  id give it a 5 out of 5

Great job ! I finished the game , it has a very unique story,it was a lot fun playing it ^^
Like all point-and-click games it had a good humour :)

It must have been really hard to creat that game, how long did it take you to finish it ?

Do you plan to make more Art from this story ?

Again Good job on the game ! :D

This game took about a month to put together. As for art, I've made a couple of drawings of Una and occasionally contemplated making some sketches of the other characters, but I've never really followed through on that idea. I've mostly moved on to other projects. (Wow...this game is seven years old now. Crazy.)

Wow a month ? That's actually pretty fast for creating a whole game ^^
I remember that I played it several years ago for the first time, but my english wasn't that good back then, so I sadly couldn't finish it.
But I could finish it now and it was a lot of fun ^^ very creative ^^

Even if it is seven years old now, it's made very well :)
Good job :)

A bit lacking in plot conflict, but well done none the less! The humor was light and nice, the game was entertaining, and the plot twist of an anthro-animal world wasn't expected. Very well done! :clap:

Try looking st the bulletin board a few times. You should eventually notice something interesting.

(And not to be overly confrontational, but I'm baffled when people say this game is hard. As far as Flash games go, Area 50.5 is not that hard. Crimson Room? Hard. Mystery of Time and Space? Hard. My Diamond Baby? Extremely hard. Compared to these games, Area 50.5 is incredibly easy.)

LOVE IT but one question...whats up with the MYST book?
Akril15's avatar
It was just a random joke I threw in without putting that much thought into it.

(And thanks for the comment!)

I loved it! It was a short game that didn't bore you, but made you think more than just a short bundle of puzzles. I must say I love the EvacuTube sound effects...I find them familiar :). But anyway, I love how the game was just humorous enough to not be boring, but it's not a really comical game. Overall, I loved it.
