The Latest Work of Dai Hyakka


GrinnypTheLatestWorkofDaiHyakkaArt is a pretty subjective thing, one person's masterpiece being another person's scribble. Fortunately, being an art lover, gamers are invited to the exclusive studio of a famous artist to view their latest work in The Latest Work of Dai Hyakka, a fun little room escape from no1game.net. Unfortunately once the player has arrived they cannot leave until they view this great masterpiece. Considering all of the puzzles (many color-based) that have to be solved to view this precious piece of art, it had better be worth it.

Exploration in this rustic studio is as easy as clicking the mouse. Click on items to examine them, to manipulate them, to take them (hey, the artist locked us in, his stuff is fair game!), and to move around the room using the handy arrows that appear at the edges of the screen. A changing cursor indicates places of interest and the inventory, while rudimentary, is easy to access. The Latest Work of Dai Hyakka is not a terribly difficult escape; seasoned players will probably be out in five to ten minutes. All that is required is some logical thinking and a modicum of art appreciation. Take a break and enjoy the art, even the picture of the giraffe which looks, quite frankly, seriously ticked off.

The Latest Work of Dai Hyakka Walkthrough

General Information

  • Pay close attention to the "art".

  • There will be directions for the colorblind in this walkthrough.

  • Good luck!

Exploration

  • You begin facing a wall with a painting. There is a table on the left and a two door cabinet on the right.

  • If you examine the painting, you will see that it is a chisel with an arrow pointing to a crown. Avant garde!

  • Click on the table for a close up.

  • There is a small picture on the table with color bands and an arrow. The colors are (from top to bottom): red, green, yellow, red, pink, yellow, and pink.

  • Click on the picture to move it and get a key. Back up.

  • Click on the top door of the cabinet to open it and take the chisel.

  • The bottom door of the cabinet is locked. Does the key work? Nope.

  • Turn right.

  • You are now facing a large stuffed bird in a glass jar. On the wall is a painting, click on it for a close up.

  • The picture is of a moon, a sun, and four stars. The stars are colored, from left to right: pink, green, red, and yellow.

  • Back up and turn right.

  • You are now facing the door out. It's not locked, but you don't want to leave until you've seen the great work of art.

  • On the wall to the right of the door is a wooden panel. Click on it for a close up and you will see that it is screwed. Looks like we need a screwdriver.

  • There is a small one door wooden cabinet to the right of the panel. If you click on it it will ask you for a number.

  • Turn right.

  • You are now facing an alcove. On the floor to the left is a moon piece, take it.

  • On the wall is another painting, click on it for a close up.

  • Looks like there's some pieces missing.

  • Back up twice. You are now facing a locked door, two more paintings, and a two door wooden cabinet.

  • Use the key on the cabinet to open it and take the sledge hammer.

  • Click on the left painting for a close up.

  • This is a painting with a strange shape and a crown. Back up.

  • Click on the right painting for a close up.

  • Geez, that giraffe looks pissed! Back up.

  • If you turn right you will be facing where you began, with the table, painting, and cabinet.

  • Time to solve some puzzles!

Opening the Panel

  • Turn right to face the strange stuffed bird.

  • Use the sledge hammer on the glass to remove it.

  • Once the bird is revealed notice the necklace around its neck. There's a square, a circle, a triangle, and a circle.

  • Beside the now freed bird is a screwdriver, take it.

  • Turn right to face the door out.

  • Click on the wall panel for a close up.

  • Use the screwdriver on the panel to open it.

  • Inside you will see a slot and a sun-shaped cut-out.

  • Looks like we need to find a sun.

  • Back up.

Opening the Number Code Cabinet

  • While we are still facing the out door, let's take a look at that single door cabinet that needs a number code.

  • Have we seen any numbers in the room?

  • No, but there are other clues.

  • Perhaps if we combine clues?

    • There are two clues for the number code: (1) the necklace on the stuffed bird and (2) the angry giraffe picture.

    • If you look at the necklace it gives the first clue, square, circle, triangle, circle.

    • Where have you seen those shapes?

    • On the giraffe picture, his markings are made up of squares, circles, and triangles.

    • Count the number of each marking. There are 7 squares (well, rectangles), 3 circles, and 6 triangles.

    • Therefore the code is 7363.

  • Enter the number code then click the "ok" button.

  • When the cabinet opens take the picture piece.

The Stuffed Bird

  • There are two clues to getting this item: The picture of the crown and chisel, and the strange picture with the crown on it next to the giraffe picture.

  • The first picture indicates that you need to use the chisel on the crown.

  • The second picture indicates the position of the crown on the stuffed bird. Look at the background of the picture, it indicates the left side of the bird, beneath the circle formed by the wing.

  • Click on the bird for a close up.

  • Use the chisel in the area below and to the right of the circle to open the bird.

  • Take the sun piece from the exposed cubby and back up.

The Panel Part 2

  • Turn right twice from the bird to face the out door and the wall panel.

  • Click on the panel for a close up and open it.

  • Place the sun piece in the sun-shaped slot and another will open up, this one shaped like a moon.

  • Place the moon piece in the left slot and more buttons will pop up, these with stars.

  • Looks like we need to solve another puzzle.

The Stars Puzzle

  • Looks like we need to figure out which star buttons to push and in which order.

  • Have we seen any clues with stars on them?

  • There was that one painting, the one with the sun, moon, and four colored stars.

  • It's a start, but how do we know the order?

    • The second clue is that small color-band picture on the table.

    • Remember the stars from the picture? From left to right they were: pink, green, red, and yellow.

    • Let's number them from left to right 1, 2, 3, and 4.

    • The color band picture had an arrow going from top to bottom and seven color bands: red, green, yellow, red, pink, yellow, and pink.

    • This indicates the order in which to push the stars, which have the same colors.

    • Therefore you need to push the star buttons in this order: 3, 2, 4, 3, 1, 4, 1.

  • After you push the star buttons in the correct order, hit the "ok" button.

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

The Next Great Work of Art (Getting Out)

  • Turn left twice to face the table and two door cabinet.

  • Use the gold key on the locked bottom door of the cabinet.

  • Open the door and take the second picture piece.

  • Turn left to face the locked door, then click on the alcove (the space to the left of the two paintings).

  • Once in the alcove click on the painting on the back wall for a close up.

  • Place the two picture pieces in the painting and you will get a key. Take the key and back up twice.

  • Now use the key on the locked door.

  • Open the door and go inside to view the "masterpiece".

  • Congratulations, you are out!

A pretty easy escape game, relying heavily on the visuals/artwork in the room - however not much too it though in terms of story/space or length.

I'm stuck:

How do I determine the combination for the lock? I assume it has to do with the necklace (square, circle, triangle, circle) since I have nothing to use in my inventory. However no number combo I think of (sides, corners, syllables) seems to work. I feel like I'm missing something terribly obvious.

Melewen, take a closer look at:

the ticked-off giraffe

Doh! Thanks, LuLu29!

you're welcome Melewen - I had the same 'D'oh' experience just moments before you... :-)

Stuck.

Can't figure out the sun/moon puzzle. All I can think of is something to do with the colors and the order of the stars in the one painting, but nothing is working for me. Anyone have a gentle nudge?

For the sun/moon puzzle

Think of how the 4 star buttons relate to the 4 stars in the painting. Its not about how many times you press the certain button, its in what order

Can't get the game to load. All I'm getting is a black screen. I tried reloading the page, nothing happened. I tried updating my Flash player, but couldn't for some reason I cannot fathom. But I'm using a pretty recent version of it and have never had any problems with Flash games in the past.

I'm on Windows 7, Firefox 3.6.23, Flash Player 10.3.183.7.

@rdgidci

Take your chisel to the yellow doll. Click around, below and to the right of the hole.

@nerdypants:

I had a similar problem. I had allowed scripts from NoScript, but all I had was a big black square. Turns out, I also needed to disable AdBlock for that site (or at least the page). Doing so unblocks some scripts that were so blocked they didn't even show up in the list.

Thanks so much, ray9na! That was just what I needed.

I see the necklace with sequence of shapes on the sculpture, and notice how these shapes also appear on the giraffe picture, but I don't understand how this relates to the lock combination. Any advice available?

Zyloe:

Count them.

Doh, indeed. Thanks.

How disappointing XDDD but it was fun

Wow, I feel like a dip now...

Never did piece together the clues regarding the crown properly until I read the walkthrough. XP

An Onyx Mouse, don't feel bad, I didn't understand it either. I only got it by frenzied clicking in the right spot.

At least half my skill at escape games isn't actually skill but just the willingness to click every inch of the screen with every item in my inventory.

That was refreshingly logical for a room escape.

My favorite part is definitely the big hummer.

As usual with these type of puzzles I tried a whole bunch of different combinations of clues before hitting upon the intended ones, without any real feedback that I was going the wrong way.
The number combination was the worst - I tried at least three 7-digit ones based on colour/shape patterns, all of which seemed reasonable but which turned out to be the answer to an entirely different puzzle.

(This is, of course, sour grapes rather than any actual criticism of the game. )

I can't believe I finished this game in 3 minutes without walkthrough. It usually take me at least 10 minutes to finish(and with walkthrough too). It's not hard but I quite like it because it's not too frustrating. Simple is good too.

P.S. I laughed a bit at the giraffe. nice one.

All I see is a black screen. :(

Pretty easy! :)
