Once in a blue moon a fantastic room escape passes us by without notice, but sooner or later in our efforts to bring you the best of the best we eventually get a clue and present it on Weekday Escape. This week's game is by one of our favorite and most popular designers, Petithima, and we are proud to finally present Mugcup, their latest effort, for your mid-week break.
A gentle tune wafts in the background as you explore the lovely pastel colored world of Petithima in their latest effort. The changing cursor and navigation bars aid you, the player, as you explore the lovely space and the usual quirky Petithima objects and puzzles. Petithima designs are delightfully minimal in style and execution, which makes the gameplay stand front and center as always. The logic flows nicely from one puzzle to the next, drifting on the currents of the mellow music as you solve your way out of yet another amusing escape. With an easy to use inventory, a mute feature, and a save feature, Petithima's games, although short, feature everything we like to see in a room escape.
The one color-based puzzle has an interesting clue, a piece of paper that not only shows the colors but the order that they appear when a particular button is pushed, making the game more accessible for the colorblind. The only complaints you should have is that (a) the game is still shorter than it could have been, and (b) it's been a while since Petithima has graced us with one of their lovely designs. Well, they're here now, so sit back and enjoy the mellow escaping.
