Even more difficult than creating an exciting, logical, entertaining full size room escape is the art of creating a mini-escape, one that has less locations and puzzles yet still encapsulates the challenge and excitement of a larger game. Robamimi manages this balancing act in their One Scene escape games, and TomaTea can as well as with their 5 minute escapes. Isn't it lucky, then, that TomaTea has just released another? Say hello to Blue Sunset.
Similar to their previous 5 minute escape, Waiting for the Sun, Blue Sunset doesn't have a deliberate theme like their larger escapes have. What Blue Sunset does contain are features common to all TomaTea escapes: lovely serene backgrounds, charming music, challenging puzzles, a gently glowing changing cursor, easy navigation, and a lock on any puzzle where you haven't yet seen the clue. With a nicely balanced mix of logic problems, use of found objects, and at least one color-based puzzle, Blue Sunset is a perfectly delectable mini-escape treat.
