JayDaymare TownJust a week following the release of Covert Front, Mateusz Skutnik is up to his shenanigans again. He writes to tell me of something "completely new and unforeseen," something different than anything to have come from him before.

Fade in: Daymare Town, a strange and oddly deserted town that gives the unsettling feeling that eyes are peering from around corners. It is a drab and dreary town, not a very pleasant place to be. But now you're stuck, and you'll do anything you can to leave.

The artwork in this game consists of sketches that create a much different atmosphere for a point-and-click game. Also, the difficulty has been kicked up a notch with the author claiming that Daymare Town is the hardest puzzle game he has made by far. It is for "advanced" point-and-click gamers, only.

You are hereby warned. Proceed at your own risk. Escape if you can.

I think I'm doing alright. I've got all the puzzle pieces except the plain square one.

Unsure if this kind of stuff is meant to be in spoilers, but better safe than sorry. Anyone have any idea what the rock and scissors are meant to do or what the point of giving the golden egg to the little prisoner guy was?

Davient, I recall getting the plain square this way: behind the picture of the house in one of the floors of the elevator, there is a "piece of paper". You gotta click on the stone that's on the table with the scissors to lift it, then put the "piece of paper" under it before it falls, and thus the stone will break (?!), inside it is the plain square. But I have trouble finding the square with the square-shaped hole... Can anyone tell me?

I found that last puzzle piece
Now completed the game :)

But there's more???

At the end of the game it says, "Oops! Looks like you forgot to solve the secret puzzle! Oh well"
If you want some ideas for the secret puzzle...

Birds, lots of birds all over the place... Maybe need to find them all?

Tribal face on the wall, goes ooooh, when you click his necklace.

Where do you find

the paper for the rock,paper, scissors puzzle? I've tabbed and looked all over the game, and have yet to find it. If you could point me in the right area, I'd appreciate it!

BTW,

Is there a reason that you can turn the knobs on the faucet? I wasn't sure if it had a purpose or not since I haven't finished.

I just wanted to comment that the peice of paper shattering the rock is based on 'rock paper sicsors' where rock beats siscors, siscors beat paper, and paper beats rock.

It makes sense then, but if you're not thinking of that when you play the puzzle, it makes little sense.

awesome!! Definitely no idea how you beat this without

using TAB to find the birds.

I don't think it was his hardest game in terms of puzzle difficulty, I just think it was his hardest in terms of pixel hunting. Of course once you start using TAB that difficulty goes away. If I had been using TAB from the beginning I don't think I would have needed a hint at all, but I suppose there's no way to know.
I hope the fact that

the little guy crosses the bridge to a new town

at the end of the game means that there will be a sequel! Style was very cool. No more bird hunts though please ;)

Hi,
I think it's a lovely little game, even though
a) I'm not all that keen on point-and-click doodahs
b) I'll have to look at some of these spoilers later on to get any further.
I guessed the "scissor - stone - paper" connection, but still didn't figure it out.
Fiendish, but fun!

This guy cannot disappoint me. Incredible.

His artwork is so ingrained in me now this game plays just as lucid as the Submachines. I like his rough drawing a lot because it's easier for him to hide things and create red herrings.

I tried without hints and finished, but without the secret. I couldn't release the captive. And I can only find 4 birds. (I didn't know there were more till I finished and read that post up there. Was that an egg in a skinny nest way up on top of a rooftop I saw from the captives' window?
That little critter sitting near the sink shocked me a bit. I didn't see him there during the short effort I made earlier this morning.

Wow, Mateusz really doesn't stop. He really can create wonderful point-and-clickers at an alarmingly fast rate.

However I must proceed in my grumpy manner. This game is one large pixel-hunt, made into extreme with the (otherwise really great and atmospheric) choice of artwork. Making progress in this game invariably means careful mouse-sweeping of each screen or using the TAB cheat (which for me sadly doesn't work).

Otherwise, a pretty enjoyable game, but for me pretty unplayable without a walkthrough. Kudos to people who like clicking every insignificant squibble on every screen, but I really don't have time for such a thing.

Geez... whew I really like the rest of his games, but this one... ehhh... I dunno. Good game, just too much suspense/scaryness in it for me. yeah... You say nothing scary? well... for me...

As I explored the town, seeing the Librarian (the furry dude) in random places, then not seeing him when I clicked there kinda spooked me, and when I clicked the sink in the torture room in the armory after seeing him a few times, when the "dunnnnnn" sound went off and the librarian was sitting there in the corner, crud it scared the heck outta me... mainly because he wasn't there before

Although the fact that he killed the TAB key cheat was cool because most escape game designers don't do that, thus he made it a heck of a lot harder for someone like me. good game though. as I said, just not the kind of escape game I can play. I mean, what I explained in the spoiler sent shivers up and down my spine, something I'm not used to, nor like. meh.

Oh yeah, in case you want a hint as to what I said in in the spoiler without reading it, Fummy said it all

HEY SKUTNIK!!

Don't know if you're still reading these posts, but you probably are since you removed the TAB cheat. Just wanted to make a little clearer something I hinted at in my last post, in case you care: you claimed this was your hardest point-and-click to date. I contend that difficulty in finding where to click isn't "hard" per se, just tedious. Your Submachine puzzles were much more creative, although I think I enjoy the world you created for Daymare Town even more than the one for Submachine (which I wouldn't have thought possible at the time!)

Anyway, I think you're incredibly talented at coming up with really creative ways to fill a puzzle world, so please don't go down the path of pixel hunters and consider it an improvement.

Best regards, from a fan of yours!!

The sad thing is, folks who played with the TAB cheat got a much more satisfying experience. Was Skutnik's intention really to make the player carefully mouse-sweep each and every location? Because that's not "hard", that's pretty much my definition of "tedious".

But if Mateus really insists on pixel hunts, can there be at least an audio clue when a hotspot is near? Wind rising up, a squeak, whatever, just to make the searching process a little bit easier and less time-consuming.

regarding the tab cheat which everyone says is disabled:

click just outside of the frame of the playing area, then push tab. simply pushing tab does not yield results, but this method is working for me... just 4 more birds to find!

clarification of TAB use:

(sorry for the 2nd post)

move the mouse outside of the active playing frame. click outside of the playing area. do not move the mouse back into the playing field. push tab. moving the mouse back into the playing field will necessitate beginning the process again.

i concur that the birds are perhaps too elusive without tab - but then again - the birds are an enticement to see everything/do everything/be everything, and have that warm fuzzy feeling that accompanies all of those things.

Like everyone else is saying, the birds were way too hard to find without the walkthrough (without TAB of course!), but also one more gripe:

Why would anyone think to combine the screwdriver with the cloth, and then light it to make a torch? Item combinations should be clever and tricky, but that one just plain made no sense.

Okay, I figured it out! Hooray! I know there is a walkthrough, but I thought it would be helpful to have these if you get stuck in solving....

Puzzle

P1: Use hook/string to get it out of the sewer in front of the City Hall.
P2: The little puzzle in the wall on the -2 floor of the Book House.
P3: Smash the paper so it breaks the rock on the -2 floor in the Book House.
P4: The upstairs on the podium in the armory AFTER you put the plate in the front of the building.
P5: In the torture room of the armory, the scary guy gives it to you after you give him the book.
P6: The guy in the passage gives it to you after you give him the coin.
P7: The safe in the office in the City Hall.

The Birds:

B1: From the main screen, click on the sky, then hover over the roof to the right until you can click, then you'll find the bird.
B2: From the main screen, click on the ledge on the lower left hand building.
B3: In the Armory, go to the room on the right and click the upper right corner of the ceiling to look up a little hole, then again on the tunnel.
B4: In the Book House on the 1 floor, there is a picture of a house. There is a little bird on the roof of the house, click on it.
B5: On the -1 floor of the Book House, there is a room full of books. On the right bottom section of the shelf, there is a book you can click on. The bird is in there.
B6: In the main hall of the City Hall, click on the rafter and hover over the boards until you can click.
B7: In the 3rd office on the right in the City Hall, click on the upper right corner, then click on the nest.
B8: In the City Hall, go through the hallway, then to the left and click twice so you are looking at a window/circle, click up at the top of the screen, then in the last hole on the right.
B9: Continue from the last screen so that you are looking at the bridge contraption, then click on the bottom left banister.
B10: In the tree outside the window of the room where the guy is chained to the wall.

Hope that helps!

To help with the rock paper thing:

It helps if you time the order of your objects so the paper is below the rock instead of on the ends. I have to start over to "find" the paper as the fourth or fifth object.

Noticed that at a couple points in the walkthrough it says to click toward the right when it's actually on the left...

For the puzzle piece behind the picture, you need to click on the left of the frame, and for the bird in the rafters of City Hall, he's toward the left not the right.
