Escape 02: Who Am I?
Escape 02-Who Am I? is really a rather nice-looking game, with well-created graphics in muted colors (I especially like the strange, oddly cute light bulb-headed statues that are scattered around the room). Your task is straightforward: examine everything, solve the puzzles, escape the room. There is one twist, however; scattered around the room are "about you" cards, each of which provide a clue as to who (or what?) the player really is. The answer will ultimately become central to your success.
I quite liked Escape 02: Who Am I? The puzzles are on the whole quite clever, and the identity crisis shtick was a nice, creative touch. I do have a few gripes, however. At least one of the puzzles is very unintuitive; once solved the answer makes perfect sense, but it was difficult for me to make the necessary logical leap. The game also requires you to collect a "bag" before you can carry more than two items in your inventory, which seemed unrealistic considering that the player is inside a locked room. Finally, the English translation from the Japanese is pretty terrible, though generally adequate enough to get the point. Still, at least to me, the strengths outweigh the liabilities, and I definitely recommend that you give it a shot.
