Weekday Escape

GrinnypEvery week we search high and low to find the best escape game to give our readers a lovely mid-week escape from, well, whatever is stressing them out this particular week. Although it's nice to discover new designers and new talent, it is especially gratifying when one of the more popular designers weigh in with something new. Yes, 58 Works, creators of Cottage and Solitude have come up with a new, classic one room escape. Welcome to Escapers Final!

grinnyp_escapersfinal_screenshot.gifBlue arrows and bars allow you to move around the space and investigate all the nooks and crannies of this beautiful room. Unfortunately, there is no changing cursor, so there will be some pixel hunting involved. Double click on items in your inventory to examine them in close up, especially some items which can be combined or manipulated in different ways. There's no music, so no mute button. And no save feature, either. However, like all of 58 Works games, you should be able to logic your way out in a reasonable amount of time.

58 Works games may not be the most difficult escapes out there, but they are always unique, clever, and fun, and Escapers Final is no exception. Lots of amusing but not too tough puzzles, and a really enjoyable way to waste some time trying to find your way out of the proverbial locked room.

Analysis: What makes 58 Works games so good? A great combination of cool visuals, unique puzzles, and interesting locations, that's what. These games are not the toughest nuts to crack (I'm looking at you, Neutral) but have their own quirky charm that make them so much fun to play.

Graphically, the room is beautifully done up in white walls, screens, wood ceiling, tatami mats, and a friendly giant robot. Very Japanese. The only downside is that there is no music, as some traditional eastern music would fit in so very well with the atmosphere.

The puzzles are not terribly difficult, but have 58 Works' usual spin on the standard room escape gameplay. At least one puzzle is in color, so those with colorblindness might have a little difficulty. And of course, there's the pixel hunting, which can be annoying.

However, despite the annoyances, 58 Works room escapes are casual gameplay done right. Fun, distracting, logical, and quirky, this is the perfect mid-week escape. Put on your thinking caps and start escaping! And when you find your way out, definitely stick around for the closing credits with the friendly robot.

Yay Escapers Final Walkthrough!

Collecting items:

TV Scene:

Click on lower right of shelf for man piece.

Click on flowers on left for silver key.

Click on right square that sort of looks like a window for glass.

Fireplace Scene:

Click the bookshelves for the elephant piece.

Move the dotted picture on the mantel for the ant piece.

Robot Scene:

Click on yellow bit to right of robot for yellow card.

Door scene:

Click on plant and then behind on the left side for the brown box.

Remember that dotted picture? Use the dots to move the robot's arms in the correct order to collect the frog piece.

Using items:

Use the silver key on the door. Collect the small table.

Use small table to left of plant, step on it, and collect the remote.

Click on brown box in inventory several times to make a camera.

Fill the glass with water from the plant and put it on the fire to collect our favorite tool, the screwdriver!

Use the screwdriver on the screws to the left of the small table you put down. The panel is on the wall. Collect the gray screen.

If you use the screwdriver on the backs of the remote and the gray screen, you see that you only have enough batteries to operate one at a time, lets start with the screen.

Put the batteries into the screen and then place the yellow card on top of it. You can see that the arrows match up with the knobs on the panel to the left of the fireplace. Open it to get a panel with four squares.

Now we need the batteries in the remote. Once there, turn on the TV. Click the screen until you get four flashing dots. What could these be?

Use the camera to take a picture of the flashing dots.

Get the picture from the camera. It shows dots of varying sizes. These match up with the panel with the four squares.

Put the four pieces we have collected into the squares in the order of their size.

Top - Man
Right - Ant
Bottom - Elephant
Left - Frog

Collect the gold key, and use it on the panel to the right of the fireplace.

These squares allow for varying colors. But where to find the colors?

Turn the TV on and check the weather.

The colors are blue, red/gray, and white. The amount of clicks needed are 6, 3, and 0. Press the button and get the handle.

Take this handle and put it into the closet door you opened earlier. There is a spot for it on the left side.

Click it to rotate it, then back out and turn to the left to see your escape!

Goodluck!

Robot Wall (redux)

Television Wall (redux)

  • Click on the TV for a close up.

  • Use the remote on the TV. Test Pattern.

  • Use the remote again. Okay, now we have a blue umbrella in London, a red sun and gray clouds in Tokyo,
    and a white snowman in New York.

  • Use the remote again. Scenic and beautiful, but does it mean anything?

  • Use the remote again. Wow, those dots are blinking too fast for the human eye to follow.

  • Hey, what if we took a picture of the screen?

  • Use the Polaroid camera on the flashing dots screen.

  • Pull up the Polaroid camera from your inventory and click on the picture sticking out of the front.

  • Okay, we have a still picture of the dots. Remember when reading a Polaroid that the bottom of the picture
    is where the largest white area is.

  • So, looking at the picture we have four dots, the largest on the bottom, the next largest on the top, the next
    largest on the left, and the smallest on the right.

  • Close the picture and back up.

Endgame

  • Open the door.

  • Okay, this is a pattern not unlike the photo we took of the TV screen.

  • Four recesses, and we have four blue tiles.

  • Each tile has an animal on it, from small to large.

  • Let's place the tiles in the same size order as the photo.

  • Bottom: Elephant, Top: Man, Left: Frog, Right: Ant.

  • Yay, a key! Take the key and back up.

  • Now click on the locked door to the right of the fireplace.

  • Use the key on the door.

  • Great, another puzzle.

  • If you click on the three squares, you will notice that they change colors, first half then full color.

  • Remember the weather forecast from the TV?

  • Let's set the three squares to match the colors from the weather forecast.

  • Left button: blue (six clicks). Middle button: red/gray (three clicks). Right button white (no clicks).

  • Once the colors are set click on the red button on the door.

  • Okay, now we have a crank.

  • Where in the world can we use that?

  • Remember the utility closet?

  • Back up and turn right twice.

  • Open the door.

  • Click on the left wall of the closet for a close up.

  • Insert the crank into the square hole and click on it to turn.

  • Back up and turn left.

  • Click on the great outdoors and enjoy the closing credits.

I think the robot may have been inspired by the Miyazaki anime movie, Castle in the Sky.

There's a photo of it here, if you haven't seen the movie: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nicolacassa/3005838865/

Why are the escape games always Japanese? (with few exceptions). Some times clues and language can make or break these kinds of games, and for some reason dilike games with broken english. (and that includes non japanese games that have bad english.)

Oh well, just my 2 cents

This game doesn't work for me on Mac with Firefox. I can only view about half the items in the inventory, which doesn't let me open the camera or use the screwdriver on the remote or anything else.

My Firefox works fine. Do you have the latest update, or are you making sure to click more than once for viewing objects and using them on other objects?

Also, I don't know if it's big enough, but someone may want to put an epilepsy warning on the TV.

Whew out. That was short. Only needed help with finding the glass, which in retrospect I should've been able to find on my own. Heh.

Going by the series of pictures in the credits, then seeing Escapers FINAL for this one, the last one in the credits, makes me think that this is their last escape game. This makes me sad. :(

to waycooler... be of good cheer!

the last line in the credits was "see you next series." i interpreted that to mean "we're gonna do this again."

nice puzzle! not too long, not too hard. unlike some escape games i couldn't imagine completing without a walkthrough. my advice: take your time, be patient, you can do this one without cheating.

That was a quick, fun escape. The only thing that was frustrating was

there was no indication that you needed a screwdriver to remove the batteries, and that you had to use a screwdriver to swap out the batteries. One extra step that wasn't needed.

Have you ever tried to prise tiny little batteries out of the back of a remote, calculator or some such device, with just your fingernails? :)

I could not get this game to work on a Mac using the newest version of Firefox 3.6. Half of the objects could not be viewed.

It worked perfectly fine using Safari 4.0.4.

I also find that I cannot examine items or use one on the other. Double clicking merely selects and deselects an item.

Bunglebonce, if nothing is happening, perhaps you don't have the items in the correct place.

Hint:

That TV image is flickering so much that it's hard to tell what's going on. If only you could freeze the frame for a second...
