Escape from Mr. Birdy Room
A funky beat, a big screen television, a bunch of puzzles, and several not at all creepy bird statues watching you from every single angle... it beats me why you'd want to Escape from Mr. Birdy Room (apart from the aforementioned peeping peepers), but Tesshi-e's latest free escape game wants you to do just that. Come to think of it... I had originally assumed this room belonged to Mr. Birdy, but... he never struck me as an egomaniac. Which means... this place belongs to someone with one serious Mr. Birdy fetish! I'm not saying that if you don't find your way out before they get back they'll glue feathers and a bow tie to you and force you to live out the rest of your life caged within this twisted shrine, but that is exactly what I'm saying. No, you have an overactive imagination!
After choosing English from the main menu if that's your lingo, click around to explore and interact, gathering items and keeping your eyes peeled for the clues you'll need to eventually find your way out. This is one of those escape games that sets out to be mystifying from the get-go, not just because of the all-encompassing bird motif, but because of the sheer amount of abstract clues and the lack of a changing cursor. Like all the best escape games, however, it's only confusing until you start putting the pieces together... and it includes a Happy Coin to boot. Plus, the soundtrack makes me feel like I'm wandering around inside of Earthbound, or maybe a Persona game, and that's always a plus. So start hunting for clues and cracking puzzles and find your way out! And then maybe if you haven't already, consider picking up Tesshi-e's first and currently only paid game, Escape from Mr. M's Room, and support a developer who continues to give us years of quality free escape games just like this one.
Thanks to Sam for sending this one in!
