Take another trip into the bizarre world of Detarou's escape games. Whether it's from the strangeness or not, it's your mission in Dayori to find a way out of this curious house. All of the usual elements are there (usual not meaning 'normal'): various costumes, people relaxing in all areas of the house and enough endings (four of them total) to have you play through the game several times. That's where the save button comes in handy, assuming you remember to use it along this short and crazy ride. Use your mouse to interact with objects, looking for a changing cursor to indicate a hotspot. Clicking the arrows along the edges help you maneuver about the environment.
Fans of Detarou's work may find this offering somewhat mild compared to the others. There are no human-headed robots, knife-licking maniacs or other such creepy creatures seen in their previous escape games. That's not to say you won't see their regular cast of characters that we've all grown to love in their signature style of graphics. Dayori's playtime is relatively short and the puzzles are on the simple side, but it's still a solid play. If you haven't had your hand at a wacky Detarou escape game, this is a great introduction. You may find yourself giving all their games a try!
