Safety Instructions

Warning: Flash

This game was exported in Flash and, as you probably know, Flash has been discontinued. As such, I can only provide access to the source code and the .swf file at the moment.

If you happen to have an ancient computer that still runs Flash in the browser, or a copy of the Adobe Flash Standalone Player, you should be able to run the game.

At some point I may port the game to JavaScript or similar, and it’s possible that the ruffle Flash emulator will get to a point where this game will run again. Let’s see.


Safety Instructions was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.5 and the excellent Flixel library. It uses sound effects I made in bfxr and a soundtrack made with WolframTones. The font in Safety Instructions is Silkscreen by Jason Kottke.

You can read my writing about the game on my blog. Safety Instructions was featured on and Free Game Planet written about by Gamers with Jobs, played on YouTube by lordJolteon and by azuritereaction, and totally ripped off by, among other things.

Safety Instructions has appeared in the exhibition Art & the Viewser at the Allegheny College art gallery and The Aesthetics of Gameplay by the SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community (online). It was also the subject of a solo show at Andrew Baker Gallery, also titled Safety Instructions.
