Weekday Escape

JessMelon Lacquer. Mellifluous Lymphocytes. Marimba Lion. Just what, exactly, does #07 ML stand for? Surely such an intelligent and well-made room escape game must have a suitably clever name. Well, I guess it doesn't really matter…though I do, I must admit, like "Marimba Lion." I'll have to remember that one.

07MLAnother high-quality creation of consistently excellent Japanese designer 58 Works (Cottage, Escape from Test Kitchen 2), #07 ML has it all. Aesthetically pleasing, with a number of interesting puzzles and a logical flow, the game provides an all-around first-rate experience. The player is launched into the game sans frills or fanfare, without even a cursory attempt at a backstory or introduction; it's just your wits vs. the room, no other context required.

The adage "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again" is especially useful advice for this game; in a couple of important instances, an action must be repeated numerous times to be effective. Otherwise, the puzzles are remarkably straightforward (if not exactly based in reality). With the exception of the final puzzle, nothing about #07 ML is wildly different or innovative; on the plus side, however, absolutely no leaps of questionable "logic" are necessary to escape the room. Don't take this to mean, though, that the game is easy or simple. There's plenty here to occupy your little gray cells, as Hercule Poirot might have said; the difference is that in the end, it all makes sense. This can be a rarity among escape games, and is something to be treasured.

The room itself is cool, clean and appealing, with white walls and minimalist furnishings. Interestingly, the keys in the game are beautiful, like tiny works of art; this shows an attention to and affection for detail that not many designers share. Navigating around the room is easy, and there are only a few instances of pixel-hunting. The absence of any sort of music seems to be a staple of 58 Works' games, and does not detract from the experience in any significant manner. I do, however, wish that the designers had chosen to include a save feature; it's such a simple element, and yet one that can radically decrease the frustration level of the player. Come on guys, get on it!

This minor annoyance aside, #07 ML is a really wonderful escape game. 58 Works just keeps getting better and better, more professional and polished with each game, and I'm excited to see what they produce next. In the meantime, we can keep trying to figure out what ML stands for. Miracle Lathe? Macabre Lotus? Oh well, whatever…

Play #07 ML

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

For those having difficulty with the clock:

There's a clue under the right sofa cushion

It's a circle with a missing segment...

...maybe try stopping the clocks second hand as it passes over the seconds in that segment

Looks like that's around second 15...

...but, notice the line coming from the side of the clue, one is a line with 3 marks, perhaps it represents the number 3?

How many marks are on the other line?...In that case what seconds are represented by the missing segment? Stop the second hand at that second.

For those still stuck:

Click on the right cushion twice to see the clue.

The segment looks like its at 15 seconds, however the line with 3 marks is 3 on the clock and the line with 9 marks it 9, therefore the missing segment is around second 30.

Click the button on top of the clock as the second hand passes over second 30 (or just keep clicking it from 25 onward). Click on the clock to open it.

Yay! Made it without walkthrough, which, for me, is very rare.

The maze drove me batty for a few minutes lol

Great stuff.

question about colored Balls

it says to put them in rainbow order. that that should Red,Orange,Yellow,Green,Blue,Indigo,and Violet. Red and Violet lock in place but the others don't. Plus Orange is not in the game so i can't put all 7 balls in to get the Doll's Head,and at this point there's nothing left to collect. Am i missing something?

ok scratch my last comment, but:

I put the colors based on the way I remember it as Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. The acronym reads ROY G. BIV. I did it in that order but I didn't get a doll head. Any ideas?

Got out with no walkthrough. Escaper #34,016. Regarding the Yellow ball:

I got it early without even knowing how. Was that the code that showed up later on the TV?

Also, regarding the last puzzle:

The maze. It took me forever to figure out to press the black horizontal bar at the bottom to "knock" on the door.

@ray9na:

Regarding the last puzzle:

I read JJ's walkthrough to see if my path was different. It isn't. Just not clear on forward.
Go forward until you hit the wall.
Turn left.
Go forward until you hit the wall.
Turn right.
Go forward until the 1st right.
Turn right.
Go forward until you hit the wall.
Turn left.
Go forward until you hit the door.
Use the horizontal button to knock.

Forgot to say earlier that I really enjoyed this game. Just the right difficulty for me.

Forget the last comment again. Now there seems to be an odd and freaky thing about the clock. Anyone have any ideas on what to do with this? It's enclosed in the spoiler.

Apparently the clock in the game matches your own. So if you play it at 7:50, you have to wait until 8:35 your time before you can open the clock. There has to be an easier way. Anyone?

Thanks for your help with this JJ. I think all you guys are so extremely clever solving these. I wouldn't have a hope in hell to finish these puzzles without help. Doh!

For those having trouble getting it to load:

Try any browser other than IE.

Thanks, jay, but I use firefox. It never loaded for me. I didn't even get the red line people talk about. What a shame.

[Edit: It must be due to either your Flash Player version or some Firefox extension you have installed then, because I just tried loading the game in Firefox on both Mac and Windows platforms and it worked just fine. -Jay]

the #07 ML mystery is solved. I went to Google Translate and copied the japanese at the bottom to it and the first words reveal this:
The first seven series. Modern? Living out of the game.

sounds like ML means Modern Living ;)

I cannot figure out how to combine pieces, like the keys. Nothing I try has worked. Can someone give me some advice?

Ohio and Sunshine,when you get the bottom part of the key,the part that would fit in the door,click the info button so that you get a closeup of that. click on that once,and it'll be level and you'll see where the top part needs to go. now just click the top part of the key,then click the bottom part and it's assembled.

Good - minimal pixel-hunting, and just the right amount of clues; I was stumped for a while, but everything turned out logical, so I didn't need to refer to a walk-through once! ^_^

Would've liked a save feature, though, and I feel the graphics weren't quite as polished as they could've been.

I appreciated BadDog's path to the jewel. I finally found the way. The other spoilers were not clear at all.
Also, about the clock,

I just kept clicking on the second hand as it went around the clock. The gap did not look like it was between 6 and 7 to me.
