It's always a perfect time for a hot spring bath, but at the end of winter it's one of the best things you can wish for. Unfortunately, unless you live nearby one of those, the only option is virtual - and that's what we've got from Neat Escape. Do you feel for a virtual visit of onsen inn? You're welcome!
When the game starts, you do find yourself in a hot spring inn but not in a bathing space. You are locked up in a neat and tidy apartment, surrounded by a beautiful nature, where you can rest and even take a nap if you feel for it. If not, you need to find a key from the door leading to a bath.
The key is well hidden and all you know is that it must be in one of the locked drawers or cases and the only sure thing is that the particular drawer is the last one you manage to open. Since the game is transferred from an Android version, there are features which may surprise you and which are typical for mobile gaming. We could have seen it in previous devs' games originally made for Android - it is possible to examine items in your inventory from all sides by clicking them and dragging them. It is also possible to do that outside the inventory (at TV screen). Also notice, that to access some areas you just need to click the game screen, there isn't any arrow, so if you get stuck, try to reexplore the apartment - there could be an undiscovered area!
As usual, there are two endings so don't forget to save your progress before you use the blue key. Surprisingly, you get to the desired bath in the first (easier) ending. In the second ending you're rewarded with a nice meal (and hopefully, the bath comes after it).
Escape from Hot Spring Inn (Android, Android Tablet)
Be patient! The 3D in this game is a lot of data, and it might take a while to load. Hope Neat Escape doesn't start doing that—it's unnecessary, and can be a pain to deal with on certain devices.
Not as much fun as some of their other ones (arc-welding in that garage was fun!), but the graphics are impeccable as ever, and the puzzles devilish. (In this one, the puzzles mostly need more than one clue. If you can't solve it, keep looking around—there might be another bit of information necessary.)
