More Flash fun coming from Japan this time, Viridian Room is a place from which you wish to escape, but have you the soul to withstand the challenge? Muha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
It's another point-and-click puzzle, and very reminiscent of Myst. Nicely done with eerie sound effects. The game was created by Toshimitsu Takagi and appears as a shareware game on the Fasco-cs.com site.
The introduction to the Viridian Room game makes reference to a previous and similar puzzle, Crimson Room. In fact, as a note of trivia, if you look through the keyhole of the door in the Viridian Room you will actually be looking into the Crimson Room. If you like games like this, you may want to try to escape from this room as well, though Viridian Room is the better of the two.
With thanks to Robert for the link. =)
Update: If either game appears in Japanese when clicking on the image above, simply close the window and click the image again to play the game in English.
