Dirty Room Escape 3

Dirty Room Escape 3 might not sound like the most glamorous setting for an escape game, but if Detarame Factory is involved, you know it's got to be cute. As you may have guessed from the title (after clicking English to change the language if you can't read Japanese), the only way out of this room is to clean it up, which is easier said than done given that it both looks like a bomb went off, and has a smattering of puzzles as well. The cursor will change when it passes over something you can interact with, so click your way to cleanliness! Don't forget the little arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen that will let you see the rest of the mess in the room. Some items will simply pop back into their proper tidy space when you click them, but others will need a little more thought... though putting a combination lock on a spray bottle seems like extreme measures to find an excuse to procrastinate cleaning up. While not aggressively challenging, Dirty Room Escape 3 offers some light-hearted puzzles that will wake your brain up gently, all rendered in Detarame Factory's signature cuddly style. And hey, you can say you already did your chores for the day!

Thanks to Lisa for sending this one in, who says, "I enjoyed this very much. In this game you are challenged to clean up your apartment before you can escape! The puzzles were just challenging enough to be fun but not too hard. Many had more than one step to complete. The puzzles also made sense, for example, you couldn't put something away until you had solved the puzzle to make a space for it. And the whole game had a good sense of humour. I definitely recommend you take a look at this game."

I really enjoyed it. I was briefly stumped at the end, when I thought it couldn't get any cleaner. Then I realized I had left my slippers somewhere silly.

Totally stuck - Can't figure out the bottom drawer under the computer, the lock on the deodorizing spray, the four arrow code, or ANY of the boxes in the closet! Hints?

@baileydonk

Bottom drawer under computer: Were you able to turn on the computer and access the hints?

Were you able to get the drawer on the top of the computer? I'm stuck on that one.

ThenAgain June 22, 2015 2:29 PM

The top drawer under the PC:

The solution is to do with the green books. Make sure you've got them all in place.

There's one in the wardrobe I missed. Read their spines. The first letters!

Amusingly, I'm stuck on the bottom drawer. I found the clue I just feel like I don't have enough information to work it out.

I'm with ThenAgain. Got the top drawer open, accessed the computer, but don't understand the clue for the bottom drawer.

Reply
Benjamin J. Ladd June 22, 2015 2:53 PM replied to ThenAgain

@ThenAgain Did you

put the batteries in the clock? If you are able to access the clue on the computer and can see the current time you have enough to solve it.

The clue on the computer shows you only two clues for the whole puzzle. The whole puzzle is actually 9:30--which you can make by combining the partial numbers together. (i.e. O + _| = 9)

I've got unlocked disinfectant, smelly slippers that aren't affected by the disinfectant, fan or fridge. A roomba (of all things), and a lightbulb with a piece of Japan inside it. I put a different clean lightbulb in that tall lamp but can't activate it. I've got a toy turtle sitting on a scale that points to around where the number 250 would be, if it were there. Can't figure the orange/black button device with wrench in it. Piggy bank is not active. Japan box isn't active. (I know it needs what's inside the lightbulb.) And tan box next to pig still inactive. Ladder icon on PC is still locked. Can't figure out the 3 number drawer or the arrows drawer.

This game is tough.

You should take a closee look at your inventory. Specifically the deodorizer spray. Once you figure that out, everything else should be pretty straightforward.

There's a number on the spray that lets you open one of the other cabinets.

Putting wet sponge in a drawer next to a roll of tape seems like cheating to me

Thanks Song. Never saw that # before. I'm out.
Love the Roger Ramjet theme at end of game.

Gaaak! Can 't unlock the disinfectant... Can't solve the bottom drawer, even with the handholding given above. I know the code, I know how to make it, but apparently not to order in which I need to make it?

a dust cloth, eraser, stinky slippers, and an open hatch

Concentrate on cleaning instead of puzzle solving

ginganinja63 June 22, 2015 6:49 PM

Thanks nnou, but I have tried clicking on everything with the items I have in inventory and nothing happens. Can you tell me specifically what I should try to clean?

Reply
ginganinja63 June 22, 2015 7:06 PM

OK, I figured it out. I actually hadn't figured out the computer, but was able to guess at 2 of the clues. I think I've encountered a bug or glitch? I have done everything, nothing in my inventory and I can't get out. When I click on the door it no longer tells me to clean up, nothing happens at all

walkthrough,please?

The clue for the disinfectant

You need to collect all the dishes, something to clean them with, then wash them all. Then you will get a clue about where the sliders should go.

For the clock code

You have to type out the whole 9:30, not just the blank squares

I got a little stuck because the 3 is not made of two ] shapes, but one ] shape followed by the same bottom piece as the 9

I did about as well in this game as I do with cleaning my actual room. Which is to say, I had to use quite a few walkthrough hints.

I had a bit of a mental dry-heave when cleaning the floor with the Roomba made it a totally different colour! The Roomba manages to clean that dense a layer of filth off the floor, but becomes 'confused' by a piece of paper?!

Very cute, and almost makes me want to go do some cleaning. Almost

Sorry I forgot to check back. You must be near the end

The slippers go into the freezer after they've been disinfected. This unlocks the ladder

Noticed that this game had a slight update recently, which changed a couple things about the clock, specifically the number of batteries needed, and the time shown.

The additional battery needed for the clock is in the top computer desk, with the letter lock. As for the time, it's now set to 9:15 upon powering the clock.
