The Almighty Sun - So... now that I have time

I just got off work so I can finally write a journal entry.
For this Pyweek I've decided to use a new library, Pyxel (at least new to me), it's not a bad option, and I can see myself using it more in the future.
Something I really liked is that you can import the code to an html file and you can play it in the browser!!! (Try it here)
Regarding the game, I feel happy for what I achieved, although the game is too hard and you need a lot of luck to reach the end, so feel free to change the code and give yourself some extra water bottles.

Escape!! - How the final game was supposed to be?

(The game when the shaders were working on Windows but not on Mac)What is missing?
The game is missing it's key element, we are missing a torch. The map was supposed to be totally dark and the player holds a torch to light up the areas. We tried shaders for this but couldn't come up with a bug-free shader.
Secondly, we are missing the actual game mechanics. There's a PR implementing some of that in our repo, still unresolved. We ran out of time. The levels would have included a set of objects - the chests (contains the key to next door), the batteries (to keep the torch lit up) and a bunch of letters lying around for touching the game lore. We're missing all of that.
We also lack the character designs. The player is supposed to a normal guy, not someone holding a gun. The enemies were supposed to be in white aprons and such or in security uniform, as they are doctors or asylum guards... not some green slime blocks.
Lastly there are some bugs that could be fixed if given the time.
* The restart button after game over doesn't work.
* The inventory shows previously equipped items after restarting a new game.
* The enemies can pass through walls and after chasing they can return to their patrolling routes but often they get stuck.
* There is no Level clear system.

It has come to my attention that our game may be a little too challenging because the enemies are too fast.
The solution is simple. Open config.py and change the variable ENEMY_SPEED or ENEMY_CHASE_BOOST to a lower value.
Sorry for the inconvenience if you come across this problem and we hope you like our game!

Apologies to anyone who tried to run this on an older python version just in case.
