Weekday Escape RetroIt's a time for looking back again - time for the Retro Weekday Escape! Tateita puts you into prison of some kind; and you are innocent! That's not fair! You can shout as loud as you can, but no answer...well, seems that you have to help yourself somehow...and the absence of guards definitely helps.

Hottategoya's escape terrace is a bit jail like too with all the bars around, but the sky is mediterranean blue, sunny and cloudless, so you may feel almost holiday-ish. Yeahm shows you surprizing approach to the genre and Minoto very surprizing approach to well known fairy tale

Have a good time and enjoy!

Wolf's BaneArceusIf you've browsed JiG frequently over the past year, you might have stumbled across my reviews of some of VasantJ's games, including the Medieval Cop and Medieval Angel Series. From this same creator comes another game of the same sort, a spinoff around the beloved, slightly-more-positive-than-Dregg (who are we kidding, that description is pretty empty!) detective Amber Heart. Starting with the innocuous enough premise "A flock of sheep walk into a bar," VasantJ soon tosses us into the newly 3D-rendered world of Amber Heart conducting an interrogation at a murder scene. It seems she's hellbent on using some techniques that would scare the daylights (or a confession) out of anyone!

The DeepArceusThe Deep is a tactical D&D style game, married with the style of RPGMaker. Made originally for a contest (Indie Game Maker Contest 2017 on itch.io), the game features a world where humans used to live underground, trapped as slaves to monsters. In this world they were also prohibited from using magic or weapons of any kind, so the only option open to them was learning to use their bodies to fight. Once they finally managed to earn their freedom and break into the surface realm, they quickly learned that life above ground was no picnic either. A race of xenophobic elves with no tolerance for anyone else attempted to wipe them out. Fast forward to a couple of centuries later, and peace seems to closer, and worse yet, only a small band of humans still posses the skills to defend themselves.

Weekday EscapeWelcome! The invitation to play is here - the new Weekday Escape is out!
Maymay doesn't want you to collect fruits or candies - it's fixing time. You are do-it-yourself guy now and the game gives you valuable know-how which you may use in real life. Amajeto kindly provides a shelter in heavy rain...and suddenly locks you in. Without any rest you need to solve many puzzles to get out (and get soaked, probably). Finally you get home with No1game, but your apartment is unbearably hot - your mother says, that if you find ten green escape men, they would help...do you believe her?

Have a good time and enjoy!

You Left MeArceusLast fall, I wrote about beautifully rendered, short point-n-click game accompanied by a suitably haunting soundtrack from Zephyo, I Woke Up Next to You Again. Since then she's published many others, most recently a game in a similar vein of style with a slightly more exploration-based feeling to it. Much like the previous title we reviewed here, You Left Me deals with a difficult topic with splashes of color amongst the melancholy, contrasting warmth with crushing sadness. To set the scene, you wake up in another world you do not recognize, with nothing but your bed floating up in space, the moon looming large in the sky above you, a most unusual feline friend by your side, and oh yeah, a fridge floating nearby because why not?

The ButlerArceusWhite gloves, fine suit, cleanly shaven. There was always something suspiciously precise about your butler, lurking just beneath the surface. A feeling that there might be something of pure evil just beneath the veil of lies. Something surreptitiously slinking submerged by the subservience. If you're the kind of person who has nightmares about, of all things, a potential butler, I'm afraid this game isn't going to provide you with much reassurance!

I Remember The RainArceusIt's funny how the mind works sometimes. It can fixate upon the most abstract detail of an evening when tragedy struck. And such is the focus of Jordan B's I Remember the Rain, which tells the emotional and devastating story of that one evening in the character's life. Just like its namesake might imply,I Remember the Rain focuses on the little details and illustrates the feeling of loss in a poignant way through visual storytelling, excellently accompanied by voice acting, soft music - and yes - the sound of the falling rain.
