Weekday EscapeHi! Welcome to the new Weekday Escape, the firm spot in the middle of a week!

This Weekday Escape at first takes you to the art museum with no1game, not to admire modern art, but to find ten little green men there. After the museum you can play for a while with Amajeto, and finally, with miyabure, you visit a truly magic place!

Have a good time and enjoy!

The PESIMARI Escape 2It´s a good day for all escapers today, we´ve got a new charming game from Tesshi-e!

With Tesshi-e, we visit a small café in the suburbs and suddenly find out that we are locked inside. It is time to escape! Pleasant vivid jazzy music sounds around, lights are on, everything is cleaned and prepared for visitors, but nobody´s around. Before we can open the door, we are supposed to make a cup of coffee....and find or arrange everything for coffee preparation. From finding a cup, through lightening a fireplace to grinding roasted coffee beans.

Weekday EscapeAssemble, escapers! Stand in line. You are all here because you are the cream of the crop. The escap-iest of escapers. You are the best. So don't let me down!

This week, Vitamin Hana has locked us up with some little piggies, whose only crime was cuteness. Primera has a tasty 'deconstructed' burger on the menu. And Amajeto thinks that you need some alone time - so much so that they are going to force it upon you by locking you away at Hotel Solitude.

Monkey GO Happy - Planet EscapeHello, dear reader! Do you need a bright orange diversion from another drowsy weekday afternoon? If you answered yes then fear not - PencilKids has you covered with his latest adventure! After choosing the monkey and hat of your choice, you'll discover that your monkey is alone in a very strange world. An alien sells t-shirts in exchange for credits, a strange device is missing its laser, and underground puzzles are just some of the puzzles you will encounter.

Run 3Where are you, and where are you running to? There's no time for questions like these as Run 3 throws you straight in with The Runner, your first adorable character. You traverse a world of oddly shaped pipes and crumbling tiles, jumping and moving around to try and stay out of the abyss beneath it and complete each level. Gravity shifts if you climb either side and the world tilts, a feature you will find necessary to negotiate the many levels. As you progress and gather batteries (or as the game affectionately refers to them, power cells), you will be able to unlock more characters including The Gentleman, The Lizard, The Skater, and more!

MeLife can be tough sometimes. Life can be great sometimes. Everyone's experience of life is different, but you could argue that we are all searching and pursuing the same thing in the end - happiness and contentment.

The pursuit of happiness through life's obstacles is explored in Me, a short platformer from Jack the Creative. You play as yourself, using the arrows to control your 'Me' character as you jump and duck through hindrances that represent the various stages and experiences of life. The game has just one level and won't take longer than five minutes or so to complete, but the simple idea behind the game is very well executed. The experience is reflective and you may find yourself contemplating Me long after the game is finished. The soundtrack is beautiful and provides a gorgeous moody atmosphere to this introspective platformer.

Play Me

Weekday Escape RetroHello! The second Weekday Escape Retro is here, bringing fun and relaxation! For some players, memories too...
And if you don´t get enough, there is always the JIG archive, where you can find much more!

The first game is from Hottategoya and you are escaping from one of their brutal concrete constructions, followed by escape from Nekonote (suprisingly without any dwarfs or chickens). The last game is by Leonard 2:50, and it´s a long one, and definitely not easy!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Monkey GO Happy - ChocolateWhat's orange, irresistibly cute, and has a face filled with tears and large puppy-dog eyes? If your guess was another installment of Pencilkids' Monkey GO Happy games, you were correct! This Easter-themed stage will have you wondering how many places you can hide a choco-button in your whimsical search to...find a princess? And what does that treasure chest beside her hold? Power? Wealth? The key to her heart? Or something sweeter?

Weekday EscapeIt's halfway through the week! Wonderful! Wednesday means escaping, so let's get to it!

This week, Vitamin Hana has us stuck in the middle of nowhere at an abandoned gas station. Funkyland's excellent travel agency have taken us on a journey to the far north of the world, and MayMay is slightly overexcited about light bulbs (for reasons that escape me).

Reform
Imagine yourself having the ability to transform, to shapeshift. Imagine being able to turn into a fish, a bird or a beast. Doesn't that sound great? And isn't it equally overwhelming, maybe even terrifying?

In SpaceWhat do you do when you find out courtesy of a note that your girlfriend has been accepted into the Hero Institute and broken up with you? Move heaven and Earth to try and impress her? Try to get into the Hero Institute yourself to win her heart back? It turns out the answer is far less chivalrous - the answer involves V not for Vendetta but Villain! Becoming a regular villain isn't enough though - your ambition is to be a Super Villain. Turns out, though, there is a little more to the process than meets the eye. Even the bad guys are no match for the bureaucratic red tape, and well, things are off to a bad start when you are robbed of your money before you can even submit your villain application. But never fear, the bad guys are here, and you soon make your way through and team up to serve as backup for a robbery. But beware, the job may not be as easy as it sounds.

Weekday EscapeHi! Do you miss something? Are you bored? Or tired? Or....just needing a break? Well, a new Weekday Escape is here!

This week are games holidays themed. Ichima invites you to an airy weekend house in deep pine woods, Aries escape to a lovely hotel by the sea and with a bit of imagination, the faucet you are dealing with in Bianco-Bianco´s game, may be placed in some historical city centre you are wandering around.

Have a good time and enjoy!

In SpaceIt's the year 2274, and facing the depletion of natural resources back on Planet Earth, the human population badly needs a new world to colonize. As part of the preparation, you and a number of crew members have been placed in cryogenic sleep for your long journey. Now though, it seems you are awake, and you must find the rest of the S.E.S. Valkyrie's crew, figure out your surroundings, and deal with the sometimes unstable reality of human emotions. If you are expecting a fully trained, professional working crew in this point-and-click, interactive fiction game by RunningZombie, prepare to be disappointed! Things will go wrong, and people will completely flip out when a few plants die. You will be saddled with life-and-death decisions in the later part of the game that affect the ending you ultimately receive.

Weekday EscapeIt's Wednesday! Let's get down to business! To escape... some rooooooms. Did they send me toothbrushes when I asked for keeeeeeys?

This week, Vitamin Hana are asking us to release our inner artist-e. Amajeto have set us up in a beautifully decorated hotel room covered in the sweet aroma of spring bouquets, and TomoLaSiDo want us to work on our oral hygiene. Mister I'll... make an escaper... out of yooooooooou!

Sherlock Has a ClueDo you like playing detective and solving a good murder mystery packaged up in a lunchbreak sized, lively point and click game? In the first installment, you found the unfortunate tea shop owner, Mr. T., suspiciously steeped in his own murder. Sherlock returned again for a whodunnit stint with a five-alarm framed suspect.

Good fortune (and fun!) will come to those who dig through the archives.
