Playing an escape-the-room game isn't all about the literal puzzling through four walls and a locked door—the figurative escape is just as meaningful. For that, we look to games that leave us feeling bright and sunny, with a tap in our toes and a tune on our lips. That's exactly what Fuwayara's Raincoat Escape does best with its oh-so-cute story, chimey music and gentle puzzles; it'll chase away those dark clouds in no time.
Like most escape games, play Raincoat Escape by clicking around the room, finding helpful clues and deciphering them into puzzle solutions. Objects you pick up are kept in the inventory sidebar where you can select to use or examine more closely with "about item". Although the cursor does change, the design is clean enough to eliminate pixel hunting on its own. Being on the easier side, Raincoat Escape makes a perfect short intermission—like a big ray of happy—in your day.
