Weekday Escape

JessIt's funny, the human palate. Some days you might wish to be presented with the most exquisite dishes imaginable, medleys of tastes and textures refined and elevated into works of art. After a while, however, it just becomes too much, and it's more appealing to just flop down in front of the television with a bag of potato chips, maybe an extra-cheesy pizza for good measure (mmm).

And really, that's what this delectable duo is: delicious, unpretentious, snack-sized games just bursting with escapey goodness. Are they remarkable? Not really. Satisfying? Absolutely. And as a plus, they won't leave grease stains on your couch.

  • icon_retroroom.gifRetro Room - I really liked this game. The puzzles are nicely modulated to be thought-provoking but not headache-inducing, challenging but not maddening. The perfect escape for a coffee break: easy enough to be finished quickly, interesting enough to engage (and perhaps revive?) the mind.
  • icon_labescape.gifLab Escape - Worry not about secret codes or enigmatic messages; Lab Escape simply requires you to take stock of your surroundings and act accordingly. This isn't a bad thing, however; it's kinda nice to take a break from more fantastical situations.
