JayJob PicoThe Gotmail team of Japan has just released another point-and-click game, and once again an English version is available.

Job Pico is the name of their latest effort, and this game puts you to the task of escaping from a room as a sort of "recruitment task" as you look for something new—presumably disillusioned with your previous line of work.

Your new job? Making room escape games, of course!

The servers are pretty busy, as usual when Gotmail releases a new game, so patience is needed while loading the game.

Play Job Pico

Cheers to Shawn for the alert! =)

Right then.

Things I've found:

Have a propeller, a gold coin (used), a silver coin (used) a fire hose, a memory card (used), a mobile phone, a yellow towel, a USB cable (used), and have used two heat remotes on walls.
I've also found a puzzle under the table with red chairs which leads to job.gotmail.jp and completed the arcade game which leads to m.gotmail.jp and used the binocular stand to find the number 16 (or at least 1 & 6) in the distance and found what looks like an H in a square and a fireman statue in the jacuzzi room.
Statue looks like it's supposed to hold the hose, but can't get it to.

I've been unable to find the silver coin, but I've found all the other items you mentioned flea. It seems like the numbers are randomly generated in the telescope, (mine were 2 and 0).

The H in the square

I'm guessing is for the helicopter. What helicopter you ask? Well, I haven't seen it, but I apparently have its propeller and remote control

About the coin-op binoculars, and judging from the responses of other people

the numbers you see are individualized? Mine are 4 and 1

I lowered the temperature in the jacuzzi

with the fireman statue & hose (the statue will eventually hold the hose, but you won't put the hose in its hands - look around the statue's base).

Now, I can go a bit further out into it by

selecting the bath towels and clicking on the water.

However, it doesn't seem to do anything yet, and the message gets cut off by the message box as it says "because tonight..."
So, I'm still left confused as to what to do next. I've got:

propeller, gold coin (used), hose (used), memory card (used), cell phone, towel, and usb cable (used)

but no idea where to go past that.

Silver coin is:

On the "road heating" control, you can click left to go out on the roof (or rather, the road) and move farther down, to the edge. I think that, given a bit of time like the gold coin, the snow on the road/roof will melt, revealing a silver coin.

I'm having the password problem too, even though I already have the memory card.

Please explicitly say what it is in the walkthrough! Is it "Got job?" capitalized and punctuated that way exactly? Does it need quotation marks?
I have tried:
Got job?
got job?
Got job
got job
"Got job?"
Got job!
Etc etc ad nauseum. I have tried zooming out and back in.

Very fun game, though

The extra space for what could be a 12th item was incredibly misleading, as was the third coin slot for the binoculars. Also, was there a point to the arcade minigame?

My thought on the extra space and extra coinslot, as well as the space at the bottom of the arcade game:

In One-off R there was an alternate ending you could get by doing a few extra things. I think this may be similar. There may be an alternate ending. I just haven't found it yet.

Sometimes, upon having clicked on something, the comment that it triggers is too long to be written in one line - and in cases like this I don't seem to be able to read anything more than the first line...

"I need a bath towel after my bath because"

"Is the company connetcted to this"

Anyone knows how to read the end of such messages?

Something seems to be not quite all right...

I assembled the helicopter, charged its battery, placed it on the mini heli-port, then clicked on it with the mobile (with the blue memocard fed into it). The mobile disappeared from my inventory and so did all the arrows from the screen so now I seem to get stuck in that screen unable to do anything beside clicking everywhere in vain.

Is it working properly and it's only something I'm missing or is it a bug?
Another thing:

I found the silvery coin, fed it into the game console, played and beat the game but all I seem to have got is a "GAME CLEAR" message and nothing else. Not a help link, not an object, nothing.

Is it OK that way?

OK, I read the walkthru for my first spoiler and now I strongly think the game kinda froze... I can't get out of that particular screen and can't do anything - and from the walkthru i know that I should be able to exit the screen and do what I thought I should.

Anyone else experienced this?

I reloaded the page, continued from last saved spot (thank goodness I saved the game often enough), tried it again and got the same freeze - cannot exit the same screen. Also, the save button is gone, plus I can't bring up the bath towel's screen by a double click on it.

master_flea and Spazzbite:
As master_flea pointed out, the extra space is for a special coin that you only get playing the game, if you are a Premium member on Gotmail's website. So none of us would get it.

Also, its only use is in the binoculars. And once you put it in there, you get a view of The Bar, another of Gotmail's games.

http://www.nordinho.net/vbull/new-adventure-games/34604-jobpico-9.html#post972642

bioLarzen, that sounds odd. I played the game in Firefox and had no problems with any parts of the game. Also I think the arcade game is just for fun, as I have completed it without playing it.

sally, well there is a certain system to solving any sliding puzzle, but it's kinda hard to explain.

In this case, find out where the pieces are when the puzzle is solved. Once that's done number them 1-15 according to their position in the finished puzzle, starting in the top-left corner, and going right, then down.

Once that is done, focus only on getting the top row of 1-4 done. It doesn't matter if anything else is in the right place or not.

Now when that is done, get the next row of 5-8 solved, without moving any of the 1-4 pieces. Once that's done you should have the top 2 rows solved.

Now for the remainder, move the 9 and 13 to their right places, without moving the 1-8. Once that is done, move the 10 and 14 to their right places, not moving the 1-9 or 13.

Now you should be left with 3 places not in place, 11, 12 and 15, and it should be a simple matter of rotating them to get the puzzle solved.

If this is unclear, I can probably post a picture guide for this puzzle.

When playing the mini game I am having some problems

I can't get the mug to fill with hot water from the kettle

I have clicked it a hundred times and exited out of the arcade game and went back in and nothing!

Also, for slider puzzles, a good strategy is to solve for the rows starting from the top row and then solving rows as you go down and working out the very last two without touching the rest.

to take the puddle in closeup click on the top of that very low wall-like fixture just in front of you when you opened the balcony door. It's under and little left of the icicle if I remember right. The click should go to about the mid-line of the screen - nowhere near the puddle. It should take you to a closer look from which you can access the puddle.

Meh. I'm another victim of Firefox.

I used the phone on the helicopter, and the screen froze completely -- no arrows, no helicopter flying, just GotMail's lovely graphics (which are terrific, but not when it's all you can do...look at the terrific graphics). I'm soooo not in the mood to putz around with the slide puzzle to do this again.

shame -- Got Mail makes great games, but I lose interest when stuff hangs and when I have to start over and pick my way through all the stuff I already did. It's fun when it's discovery, it's not fun when it's stuff you have to re-do because the game froze.

For the walkthrough that has been posted - it needs a minor correction. Step #46 - Turn off both heaters is incorrect - It should be to return heaters to original positions, or something along those lines, as the ice only forms in the corner if the road heater is on, not off.

Just a note :)

yes, IETab is a Firefox addon and can be rather useful with pages that were optimized strictly to IE. IETab makes Firefox open pages using the IE motor.
It's an official and, of course, free Firefox plugin so you can get it from lots of sites. The easiest way: In the Tools menu of the Firefox menubar you select "Add-ons". It brings up the Add-ons window the bottom roght of which there's a "Get extensions" link that takes you to the Firefox extensions homepage. There you searc for IETab and it finds you.

Belive me, 3 minutes of clicking and that damn helicopter's gonna fly like an angel :)

Architectonic,

the problem with Firefox is probabléy due to some plugin problems - some of us probably have an older version of it - or don't have it at all, others, like you, do. So it's very probably not a bug.

yeah, I guess it was the Firefox thing, I never did get that

red mold to go into the puddle

and its a shame as I'm a big fan of the Gotmail games but I gave up on this one and I'm not retracing my steps using IE (a browser I won't use anyway), especially when theres a slide puzzle in my way. I hope the next game from them isn't so buggy and doesn't have a flipping slide puzzle!

To all having trouble getting Red Mold to

go into the puddle

PLEASE NOTE that you have to

Turn on both heaters first, not just the one to make the icicle drip

I'm using firefox v 2.0.0.11 and i ran into no problem at all once i did this.

i think the walktrough is missing some stuff.

it mentions "Load the memory card into the mobile". Where the heck can you find the mobile?
Also, "Use the remote on the chopper" although the walthrough didn't mention anything about finding a remote.

Grrrr got to the end and my whole computer froze up. I had to reset. Anyone else had this problem? Anyone know why it happened? That was the fastest I've ever finished a Gotmail game too. I was really pleased with myself. Well I gotta see the end so here I go again. If my comp freezes again I'll let ya all know though it's probs gonna be my comps fault so it won't matter anyhoo. Gonna run anti virus and spyware just to be sure. Oh and hi Jay lol.

Right done it (again) and no freezes. Scans are clear so it just must have been one of those things (whatever they are). Anyhoo not the best Gotmail game. It was on the easier side of Gotmails games I thought. Still worth playing though. All in all I enjoyed playing it (twice).

When I look into the telescope after putting the second coin in I get blackness with no sign of any numbers! Is this a glitch?

For the person thinking the walkthrough is incomplete:

The mobile means the phone referenced in the walkthrough. I dunno why, but I didn't see it on the chair until after I read the walkthrough. The remote is the phone after using the memory card on it.

Be sure to drag the pieces of the sliding puzzle. If you got this far that you can see the puzzle, you should be able to do it as well.

It was a pain in the ass though >_< Or maybe sliding puzzles are not my thing. when i finally thought i had it it

turned out that the shell-pic should be top left, and not bottom right >_<

so i had to start the puzzle over again.

as for the mold. i got annoyed with that one. I had to click at least 10 times to get the screen where you can actually place it on the ground.

that was absolutely useless...I got the the point when I was using the telescope 2nd time round, and the game just closed

I opened it again (luckily I had saved a while before) and it shut itself down again..

never will get to finish it...

When you have put the memory card into the cell before you got the helicopter from the stupid puzzle game all you do to ge the remote to make the heli move is to click once one the cell and then on the heli a couple times. Whew, this one took me some time. oh and to charge the helicopter plug it into the usb on the laptop.

Only AFTER you have the towel and the helicopter has taken off will you be able to get the coin out of the jaccuzzi!!!

Hope this help for those who are still playing!

You have to go to the jacuzzi door, and click on the little panel to the left of the door, and turn up the heat for the roof to get the icicle to melt. I hope that helps. :)

I really like this game :) I felt a little cheated the second time I played it though; the first time I played it, I only had to move two pieces for the slide puzzle, and then when I played it again.....I had to do the whole puzzle. But this game has helped me to not hate slide puzzles as much as I used to. For some reason, this game always makes think of U2's The Unforgettable Fire (the song) :) I've always liked that song...... And I really like all of Gotmail's games

Ran into a problem...

I couldn't find the hidden numbers in the street scene (second image).

It saddens me to say that...

...I was able to brute-force my way through the second half of the password.

hmmm... visiting m.jopbpico.com was not necessary... game was complete w/o it.
also, that sliding puzzle, it gave me link and password - but the game did not taken the password initially. though it took it later on another attempt.
Maybe it was timely, or maybe copy-paste instead of pasting. Or maybe clicking on game itself, rather then typing URL of page - don;t know. but it worked later and idd not work immediately after puzzle worked on.
