Weekday Escape

SonicLoverIt's another blast from the past with this week's Weekday Escape. It's an oldie from our old friend Bianco-Bianco by the name of Escape from Dr. Ichie's Factory, another gem in the Dr. Ichie series (you may remember the Room and the Café).

Dr. Ichie's FactoryThe story's a familiar one: you wake up in the middle of an odd factory building, and you find a note from the culprit, Dr. Ichie, telling you that you have to solve some puzzles to escape from it. Well, Doc, we eat rooms like yours for breakfast every Wednesday. Pity this area isn't as comfortable as the other two.

Navigation is a simple affair. To turn, move the mouse cursor to the edge of the screen, and when it turns green, click. To use items, click them once to select them, then show the game what you want to use them on. To examine them, double-click. And, of course, you know the rest.

Analysis: We all know what Bianco-Bianco does best, and they do it again. Everything we know them for is here: puzzles that make sense without being too obvious, photorealistic graphics (and a nice panning system from screen to screen), a little pixel-hunting (but not a lot), and (*sigh*) no soundtrack whatsoever. I know some games are over-the-top with it, but I wouldn't have minded at least a *ping* when you picked up an item.

Nevertheless, the Factory is such a well-designed piece of work that it's definitely worth a play.

That was pretty easy!
Here's my first walkthrough:

1. Getting your orientation

Click on the slit on the wall. Note that you need a time card.

Click on the white machine in the corner. Note that you need the time card in the holder to open the door.

Zoom out and turn left once and click on the trolleys on the right. Click on the right trolley and pick up the piece of paper.

Zoom out and click on the sign above the table. Note what it says.

Zoom out and click on the green clock on top of the table. Pick up another piece of paper.

Click behind the clock to find a stapler.

Zoom out and turn left. Click on the empty frames. Click on the frame with the writing and note what it says.

Click on the cabinet in the corner. Open it to find some staples inside. Pick it up and put it in your stapler.

Zoom out and click on the empty frame again. This time turn left and note what's on the bottom shelf.

Zoom out and click on the forklift. You need to find the code.

Zoom out and turn left. Click on the boxes on the right. Note the boxes with the colourful dots.

Zoom out and click on the spray cans. Look under the lid for a socket.

Zoom out and click on the 2 boxes on the left. Can't do much for now, but note that you need a key for the red toolbox, and the white box has a thin slit.

2. Solving the puzzles

(a) Opening the door on the forklift

The code is on the boxes with colourful dots.

The boxes with colourful dots corresponds to the keypad on the door.

Remember the writing on one of the empty frames?

4915. Open it and get the ratchet. Put the socket on the ratchet.

(b) Opening the bolts

If you followed the steps for 2.(a), you should have the ratchet with a socket. Use it on the black box with the bolts to obtain the 3rd piece of paper.

(c) Opening the red toolbox

If you have been following the walkthrough, you should have all 3 pieces of paper, as well as a stapler with staples. Staple the pieces of paper together.

Look at the back of your stack of paper. What does that mean?

It's related to the boxes with colourful dots again.

Rotate the boxes and get a new code for the door on the forklift.

8375. Pick up the key.

Use the key to open the red toolbox to get the time card.

(d) Getting out

While you're at the red toolbox, can you do anything with the white box?

Put the stack of paper in the white box.

Put the time card in the green clock.

Put the time card in the slit next to the exit (the slit is actually a time card holder).

You need to put the time card in the right slot. Match the number on the time card to the number on the holder.

It should go in the 8236 slot.

Press the red OPEN button and you're free!

Ok, I'm out...
Here's my first attempt at a walkthrough, so I'll apologize ahead of time.

Turn left once and examine the carts on the right. Again, examine the carts on the right and get first document.

Back out and read the overhead sign, be sure to take note of the order of operations.

Examine the table with the time clock and pick up second document. Then get stapler behind clock.

Back out twice and go left once. examine the empty racks. Zoom in on the rack with the writing on it and take note of the order.

back out once and examine the cabinet. Get the staples out of the cabinet and combine with the stapler.

back out and go left. notice the differant colored tags on the boxes and take note of the locations. Now back out and go right once and zoom in on the left side of the fork lift.

Remember the colors found on the empty racks and the order they were in. The colors coordinate with the safe.

4915

get ratchet

Back out and go left once. examine the spray cans. Check under the removed cap and get socket. combine the socket and ratchet.

Back out and go right once. Zoom in on the empty racks again, but this time go left. Use the ratchet on the bolted engine block and get third document.

Combine the three documents with the stapler.

Now that you have them stapled turn the documents over and notice the clue.

Again remember the color code, but this time they are rotated. Go back to the safe on the forklift...

8375

Get key

Back out and go left once. Examine the white box on the left. remember the big sign...put in the documents. Use key on small box and get time card.

Back out and go right twice to time clock. Use time card to clock out.

Back out and go right once. zoom in on the yellow rectangle. examine the time card and notice the number at the top. Put the time card in the appropriate slot.

Back out and zoom in on the white table. Hit the green button and click the opening in the garage.

you're out...MERRY CHRISTMAS

Look at the colored boxes, do they look like anything else?

It is the keypad on the lift truck. Find the color code on the floor to the right of the truck.

I think that could have been one of the shortest escape games I have played here. Not very hard but nice to play. Thanks JIG.

Stuck! I don't know what the "drawing putting" is to insert my stapled documents. Don't want to look at the walkthrough since I might see something I haven't discovered yet.

A fun little way to avoid work. (Stupid anthropology paper . . . )

Oh, and before I forget: Sonic Lover, whenever I encounter a game with no music or sound effects, I just make my own. It makes the game at least a zillion times more fun. Bzzt-PING!

Making the direction button to "in plain sight! places" hard to reveal is just stupid.

This one did that for the metalboxes 3rd document location.

I always think it's a nice touch when the game author admits and apologizes for their shortcomings in the English language. But it also makes me wonder why they don't have a friend who is a native speaker spell-check the product for them. I know the characters don't translate directly, but there must be a way to interpret their intended meanings more completely.

I enjoy these escape games, though I rarely seem to be able to do them without a walkthrough at one point or another.

I just think the little note at the beginning where it apologizes for the bad english is sweet.

Easy and short, but enjoyable. The puzzles were a bit too straightforward: none of them had me wishing I had a walkthrough!

Anyway, I'm going to play Fail-Safe now. Why am I telling this? Huh... I don't know.

I can't figure out how to combine the tools, i.e. the ratchet with the socket and stapler with staples? Is this a MAC/PC thing?
