Weekday Escape RetroHow about a short excursion back in time? Are you ready? Good, four games from past are waiting for you this Wednesday on JIG!

With Hottategoya, we are escaping from a functionalist architect's dream, concrete tower with complicated system of staircases and corridors. Kiteretsu takes us into simply furnished cute rooms (two!), and with Gatamari we continue the journey we've already started three weeks ago.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeAnother week is over, another seven days behind us, we all are smarter and wiser and a new Weekday Escape is waiting. What a nice Wednesday!

Genuinely positive Denofthekamo lets us out of Ramen Shop only after we get a drink for big rooster (yes, poultry everywhere, again). Neat Escape lets us in to play after we solve some sophisticated puzzles. And Miyabure takes us to another awesome magic place!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Phantom Reverse After strange events force you into a couple weeks' absence from New Heart High School in Toyko, you decide it is time to head back to school and try to get life back in order. But when you haven't gone so far as just outside of your house and your best friend Melanie since middle school seems to be shyly hiding a dark secret from you, you start to wonder if something has gone horribly astray. It doesn't help matters when a shape with glaring red eyes suddenly appears in the gloomy dark sky behind her, then vanishes just as quickly. At first you dismiss it as an artefact of your sleep-deprived consciousness, but upon a second encounter you begin to wonder if it might be a harbinger of things to come.

Monkey GO Happy -Cabin EscapeWhat has two arms, two legs, and a face that's both adorably cute and heartbreakingly sad at the same time? Why, the monkey character in PencilKids' Monkey GO Happy series of course! This time, you find your orange friend trapped within some sort of log cabin. As usual, there are other people around, but they are more obstacles rather than friends. The characters that you will need to placate include a grumpy old man missing something for his nap, a woman demanding a large stash of candy, and a man very anxious about some missing parts from his hunting trophy.

PencilKids incorporates the usual atmosphere making another hybrid between point-and-click and collecting items. If at first it seems easy, do not fret - some of the later puzzles are quite a bit more involved, so there is something to satisfy the puzzle solver in everyone! To play you will need only your mouse to point and click, and of course a good sense of visual acumen. As an extra bonus, you can seek out the ten mini-monkeys scattered throughout the stage to make sure none are left behind. So what are you waiting for? Dive into the adventure and make the money GO happy!

Tree House QuestDid you remember ever having a treehouse when you were younger? In Tree House Quest, you play as the little boy , evicted from his treehouse by his bigger brother. In order to redeem yourself, you must retrieve a mysterious object, the "Golden Pog." Not having any other apparent choice to reclaim your pride, you set off into the heart of your backyard to explore further, accompanied only by your weapon of choice, your trusty yo-yo. As you traverse several areas, you'll encounter fierce foes, from evil vegetables (of the garden variety, of course) to peculiar gnomes.

Colorful graphics and animations make Tree House Quest the epitome of childlike imagination in visual form. What makes the game even more noteworthy is that it was made in a mere 72 hours for Ludum Dare 37. Arrow keys or [WASD] can be used to move around and select choices during battle, while [Spacebar] is used to advance dialog or confirm selections. As a curious mixture between exploration and rpg fighting, Angry Squirrels' game may be just the ticket to revitalize your childhood fantasies and sense of wonder.

Weekday EscapeWednesday, Wednesday, gotta get down on Wednesday! Down to escaping, that is. No time to waste!

This week, Funkyland have flown us to the Big Apple and put us up in a very fancy hotel - from which, of course, there is NO ESCAPE. The friendly folks at Riddle Escape have locked us in a room that takes rustic cabin décor to a whole new level, and Vitamin Hana needs a little bit of help with their takeaway order.

Pizza QuestDespite sporting an outfit more suitable to a court jester than a chef, when the Queen wants a mushroom pizza and wants it now, you're not going to be the one to raise objections. After all, let's just say all the previous chefs have been forced into permanent retirement, leaving you as her personal cook. But if you were hoping to find all the required ingredients neatly stacked up in a cabinet and ready for cooking, well...it won't be that easy!

In this point and click from CarmelGames, you will have to hunt down or even grow your own ingredients. Often you will have to pursue more creative solutions. Is there a can opener for that tomato sauce? I don't think so! This game is played solely with the mouse to point and click. The cursor changes when moved over an interactive element, and items in the inventory can be used on each other or on the elements in the scenes. Rumor has it that the Queen will pay you will for a pizza well made, but I wouldn't taste her patience, lest it be off with your head instead!

The Puppet MasterMirror mirror on the wall, who's the doll-est of them all? Could it be YOU? Have you ever played with dolls as a kid, or maybe as an adult too? When you wake up in The Puppet Master, it turns out that it's time for a bit of role reversal! Your reflection in the mirror confirms your suspicion that your soul has been trapped in doll form, and you are soon accompanied by a voice of a woman. Simply solve a few puzzles and try not to cringe too badly at inaptly timed puns, and you will have your body returned to you. Fair enough, right?

Pinstripe: Chapter 1The word literally is quite literally bandied about quite a bit these days. But even still, I think we would all literally go through hell for one of our children. And I don't think I am exaggerating. You. Would. Go. Through. Hell. For your kid. You might even say that hell would freeze over before you would let any farm befall them...

Weekday Escape RetroHi! This week we are going retro in Weekday Escape. Three excellent games from three excellent developers are waiting for you!

What do you know about bears private lives? Did you know they like fish? Probably yes, but did you know they also like motor boats? Not many people do, but Robamimi certainly does and she kindly shares her knowledge in Bear´s life with us, less informed mortals.
Talking about private lives, what about flowers, specifically tulips? Do you know, which tulips get along well together, and which are unhappy if coupled? Sanpoman knows it and tells you much more in Tulip room.

In Gate Escape 1 from Gatamari you don´t need a key to escape, but a cutter and some magical ability to get one.

In all three games is some Japanese text(s), but you don´t need to understand to get through.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Troll AdventuresYou were ecstatic when you received a flyer in the mail for a free trip around the world, so naturally you packed up your bags and got going. It turns out, though, that the one expense is laughter at you! You'll have to use your smarts to outmaneuver the trolls hellbent on ruining your vacation, whether it's shattering the silence of your meditation, knocking over the Eiffel Tower, blowing a bank vault to smithereens, hiding elevator buttons in the strangest of places, or other sorts of mischief. A troll's work is never done! Many of the levels require you to think outside the box, but if you're stuck, worry not - a video walkthrough is at the ready should you require a hint.

Weekday EscapeIt's the middle of the week. We've climbed the hill and it's all downhill from here. Before we hit the slope to Friday, let's do some escaping!

This is a week of things going wrong. A supposedly safe fire exit turns out to be not so safe, and a skydiving trip turns sour when the plane door can't be opened. And then you can't microwave your meal. Oh, the humanity!!

Yûrei StationYou've probably heard the siren call of a midnight snack or had a thirst for water at least once. But in Atelier Sentô's point-and-click adventure Yûrei Station, something deeper and darker is at play. You play as a girl who sneaks out at the crack of dawn, careful not to disturb her parents, who wouldn't know what is going on anyway. Sitting in a train compartment in the pre-dawn hours, a heavy presence abruptly sits beside you, sending shivers up your spine. Not daring to get up, your phone suddenly receives a message. "I see you..."

Rhythm DoctoreIsn't it an amazing feeling when you go to a concert and the drum beat matches your heart beat? Music has been shown to have restorative powers, and that concept is taken to the extreme in Rhythm Doctor, a one-button game in which you rely on the power of rhythm to save lives.

Rhythm Doctor puts you, a trainee doctor, into the emergency room with a room full of sick and dying patients. In order to save the lives of your 8-bit patients, you need to watch their ECG and hit the spacebar on the seventh beat. The funky background music gives you the tempo and keeps you on track. You start nice and easy with one patient and one heartbeat, but don't get cocky - things quickly get complicated when multiple patients present at the same time, and their heartbeats are all on different rhythms.

Mad HeadEven a mad scientist is not immune to the siren call of cravings for caffeine and sugar. In Mad Head, you play as Keithan, a school kid who probably has wiser things to do in the middle of a school night, you must supply an unnamed scientist with coffee and a chocolate chip cookie before he will show you his latest invention. Collecting this midnight snack may seem a simple endeavor, but don't be fooled - coded messages, rigged slot machines, vending machines, and more await in your path.
