The fatal flaw of many adventure games is that they are too complicated, or seem to think you have days and countless Friday nights to spare in the completion of unintuitive or unfair puzzles. Well, at least Ori Brusilvsky understands your pain and created Route 401 Motel, a fun little point-and-clicker that most of us mere mortals can finish and enjoy in the span of a couple of coffee breaks.
You play a lucky young man who has just inherited a motel with a lovely scenic view of Route 401. The only hitch is that an entire family of yahoos with questionable hygiene are squatting in your lovely new property and you'll need to find a clever way to give them the boot if you want to start running the place. Just click around to explore, using the map on the bottom left to switch locations, and racking up items in your inventory on the bottom right.
Route 401 Motel keeps it simple with just four locations to wade through and streamlines the whole experience as much as possible, so that the distance between "I know what I can do with those batteries!" and actually doing something with them is short. That doesn't mean there aren't any challenges, of course, but some of your more seasoned adventure gamer friends, the ones who you suspect have no life and family obligations to speak of, might scoff at. But for the rest of us who have started so many adventure games only to quit in defeat days later, Route 401 Motel will be a fun exercise in maybe, actually, you know, winning. Just be careful not to slosh coffee all over your coworkers when you do your "I actually won an adventure game!" victory lap around the office.
