So you've climbed to the top of my mountain and wish to ask me: "Mysterious elle, what is the secret to escape?" Ah gosh, I guess do have mad escape-the-room skills. But it was not always so. The ways of escaping are special secrets learned through concentration and practice; no sensei can impart mastery on a student whose heart is not... well, even from here I can see you rolling your eyes. Look, sometimes we all need a little extra help. That is why we are looking to you, the JIG community, to drop some serious escape knowledge on your fellow escapers in the form of walkthroughs.*
Booca in Southern Island: Episode 3 - In the third installment of Coconuts Park's episodic adventures of two adorable pigs, Booca can't sleep so her brother, Noib, sets about making chamomile tea. Your help is needed to gather the ingredients. It is as much about story as puzzles, so much so that if you skip the story parts you miss half the game. While the puzzles themselves are few and rather simple, a couple red herrings and a few untypical quirks in the interface might be just enough to throw an escaper off game.
Find the Escape-Men 81: Muscular Man - No1Game's little green fellows are small enough to hide in the most unlikely places. Can you blame them if they want to bulk up a bit? Getting six pack abs involves plenty of crunches and getting out of this gym involves some number crunching, too. Since a tough workout has sapped your strength and a 100kg steel door bars your exit, find all ten escape men and maybe they can give you a helping hand.
Candy Rooms 1: Carrot Casual - Looking for short and sweet? This candycentric escape from FunkyLand asks you to find six candies of various types, some out in the open and easily picked up and a few requiring some puzzle solving. There's a pixel hunt for one and an untypical mechanic for getting another, otherwise it's a nearly straight shot out the door. While it might leave you wishing for a longer, more involved escape, it remains satisfying for its duration.
