Escape games need some challenge to necessitate an "escape" rather than a mere "leaving", but the promise of cagey puzzles isn't enough to lure us inside in the first place, and locked doors alone won't keep us hanging around. That trick requires more appealing methods, such as an intriguing premise or stunning surrounding or, as in Yona Yona Games' Kagome, a charming character: the little blue bird. Here, your goal is both your freedom as well as that of your feathered friend. A sprinkling of puzzles bars the way: simple enough to overcome by logic even as a smattering of misdirection forces just enough diligent thinking to make that door key well-earned.
Play is standard fare for the genre, although some amusing details and a clean design make up for any shortfalls. Namely, the untranslated narrative could spark disappointment if not a sort of fomo for those who can't read Japanese. Because of a stagnate cursor, try to be mindful where you click. I'm not agreeing it's a pixel hunt, only that haphazard clicking just anywhere on an item is unlikely to turn up needed clues. There's no save feature but can be replayed quickly if you want to catch both endings. In Japan, Kagome is a child's singing game somewhat like Ring-Around-the-Rosie and this room escape has a similar jubilant sing songy spirit, which should lighten yours.
