Weekday Escape

elleAt the end of the day, the important thing to remember is not whether you seized it—it is about whether you've learned what needs knowing and are ready to apply that knowing to the unknown: i.e. tomorrow. Well, tomorrow will be eventually upon us, dear readers, but for now it's worthwhile to have ourselves a bit of vacation. A get-away-from-it-all-and-forget-yer-troubles sort of thing. That is where our illustrious friends, the room escape game designers, speak from the heart. Whether hurrying through the midst of a bustling city or lazying near an island beach, everyone needs a chance to escape. Thus Weekday Escape is just what everybody needs! This time around FunkyLand is red all over with a return of the whimsical Candy Rooms series, Yuri's darling chicks give hide-and-seek another go, and Yomino Kagura presents a puzzling A-B-C...

Candy Rooms No.15: Crimson Red ModernCandy Rooms No.15: Crimson Red Modern - The whimsical goodness keeps coming and we couldn't be happier about that. After all the candies, fruits, rabbits and dodoes, it's obvious we can count on FunkyLand to deliver a quick escape from all that is dull and colorless by creating a world of rooms we long to live in, never leaving. Crimson Red Modern is no exception although it's useful to know about a unique aspect in the user interface: not only do you navigate by pointing-and-clicking, as the "How To Play" menu points out, there are times when clicking-and-dragging need be employed. Other than that, the puzzles tend toward the usual, nothing that would surprise or stymie a player, experienced or new. Yet the atmosphere is just so modern and elegant, you'll feel like a VIP guest in the most exclusive boutique hotel money could buy.

Chicks Hide and Seek 20Chicks Hide and Seek 20 - by Yuri holds all its charm in the pure adorableness of the title characters. A school of ten baby birds who want you to go seeking out their hidden study tools before they're willing to leave class. The focus is more about finding and using items that the scholar chicks need rather than solving puzzles. Most are at their desks just waiting to be "found" but one of the ten is so well hidden, you might be hunting pixels long after the bell rings. The lack of code breaking or clues to decipher makes this episode short but it's equally sweet. A good getaway from frowny edges and grumpy thoughts.

Escape from the Room of the Alphabet PictureEscape from the Room of the Alphabet Picture - Yomino Kagura's "Room's Room" creations are not about whimsy and cuteness, they are more budget motel than ritzy hotel, and the background story is always a little vague. Just why do we keep finding ourselves locked in this same room time and time again (you'd think we'd have thought to get a second key made by now)? And who keeps sneaking in when our back is turned to re-arrange furniture and set-up new puzzles? Yet, though subtle, the room does have personality—a certain playfulness, a love of riddles, that makes me think it'd be a great setting for a theme party. The logical clue presentation and clean design mean you can navigate your way through the game and still put your feet up, a cool drink in hand, forgetting the rest of the day's affairs.

We love escape games, and our readers love talking about them and sharing hints! How about you? Let us know what you think, ask for clues, or help out other players in the comments below.

Argh - In Candy Room - I can't figure out the clue to the numbers under the frog ... it's driving me crazy!

Slackermom: Yes, that was sending me up the walls too, until I accidentally discovered that...

... once the colour code has been entered, and you've retrieved the crayons, you can hold the button down over the frog statue and drag left or right to spin it around.

Yeah, annoying and I found it entirely by accident.

Try clicking and dragging on the frog. The frog on the left side, not the drawing.

Thank you Nezuji! It was so easy up to that point so hitting that particular wall was very frustrating!

I couldn't figure out the three-color code for the drawer in the Room with the Alphabet Picture, so I just brute-forced it. Is it really just that the colors correspond to

the first three letters of the word "NOTE"? Because that would have been a lot more intuitive (and harder to brute-force) if it had been a four-color code instead.

Look on the underside of the blue square block.

That should clear up your confusion.

Oh, *that's* what that meant.

I thought it meant for me to start the colors of the frog clockwise or something. I kept trying different combination.

I'm stuck in Room's Room, embarrassingly early...

I've got the note with lots of triangle on it and... that's it. I can't figure out how it corresponds with the three buttons on the cupboard with the big triangle.

I'm having a bit of trouble in Alphabet Picture escape. I can't figure out

a piece of paper with triangles on it which I think is a clue and a yellow triangle since I had to force the note drawer open

If you are still having trouble with the triangle puzzle in Room's Room:

Note the orientation of the triangle on the cupboard door.

Do you see any triangles with that same orientation on the paper?

I do see the orientation and I know that

the sequence to open the cabinet is Middle, Left, Right, Middle, Left, Left, but I can't see how that pattern matches anything on the note.

Can it be that

when the triangle is upside down, the clues need to be followed upside down as well?

Still don't see it.

Duh, I see it now!

The location of the triangle, from the top, is:
first row - in the middle
second row - on the left
third row - on the right
fourth row - in the middle
fifth row - on the left
sixth row - on the left
So, click on the buttons: middle, left, right, middle, left, left.
