Aries Escape: Episode No.006
You're invited to the birthday party of a dear friend and, as birthdays usually come on an annual basis, there is nothing unusual about this one...except, when you show up, it turns out to be a big set-up, getting you to partake in a surprise room escape game. So, Happy Birthday! Even if it's early or late or right on time, join the celebration in LiberTechno's festively made-up banquet hall replete with pretty balloons, scrumptious cake, chafers of fancy foods and clever puzzles in the form of wall decorations. What better way to escape the weekday than with a little party game called Aries Escape: Episode No.006?
If you're familiar with LiberTechno's characteristic style, you should mostly feel right at home. In a large part, things work the same way here as in other episodes: a changing cursor will help you seek out active areas, inventory items are kept close at hand, and arrows indicate the directions you can turn so that all actions and navigation take no more effort than a simple click. In this case, though, a long banquet table in the center of the room makes getting around a little less simple, as it can be hard to change perspective and understand your movements. In some cases, this is helped along by arrows on the right and left so you can easily shift over even when in close view of the table. If you're able, keep an open document to make notes and paste in screenshots as this will aid your sleuthing quite a bit.
Not long into the shindig, perhaps you're feeling dizzy from navigating the long room or the sheer abundance of puzzles here—or maybe it's just a sugar hangover—but you'd like to get outside into that gloriously sunny day, wouldn't you? Then make a note to examine every ornament, every place setting, and every corner of this room as you can find. Don't think that, just because you don't see an easy way to reach a particular spot, that it isn't worth a look (sometimes you need to see its clue first, sometimes you need to try a new approach to get there).
Once you click around enough, you'll get a sense of where you're going. What's more challenging is determining which clues will lead to answers to which puzzles and codes; so many details abound just for the stubborness of existing, to divert your attention away from the real solutions. In this way, clues are hidden in plain sight, calling on your detective skills to uncover them. Great fun for those who are looking for more challenge and content in their escape, leading up to a giant feeling of satisfaction once you solve your way out. Now isn't that the best way to leave a party?
Note: To adjust the sound, select the tool icon and move the bottom slider to the left. Keep the top slider, which controls click sensitivity toward the right.
