elleVintage MemoryAs with anything good, there's something about a TomaTea escape game that goes beyond description. But you know one when you see it—logical puzzles that lean heavily on code-breaking, the ever erudite "no clue" messaging and settings that look like an artistically rendered feature spread from House Beautiful—all marks we've come to associate with the designer whose icon is a plump red veggie-like fruit.

So let's look back at Vintage Memory, a relatively vintage TomaTea game. While the light-up cursor, found in newer TomaTea releases, is absent here, both design and distinct (though not always obvious) clues mean you won't miss that extra guidance. Of course, there's a bit of misdirection involved, especially with multiple 4-digit codes to break, and it's not quite as seamless as more recent TomaTea productions. Yet, Vintage Memory is still a fun, mildly challenging escape—with all the classic TomaTea features to make it memorable.

This was the first Tomatea game I played, and it's still my favorite. There's a surprising depth lurking behind what at first appears to be a simple escape from a small room.
