Escape from the Scenic Room
You're in a room with a beautiful view of the horizon. An Escape from the Scenic Room might be the last thing you're interested in doing, but in Tesshi-e's latest escape game of the same name, that's exactly what you're tasked with. Hey, we've all got to go to the bathroom at one point or another, right? After changing the Language setting from Japanese to English and sitting through the introduction, you're good to go. Navigate around the room by clicking on the shaded bars, collect inventory items for examination and use, solve every puzzle in the room, and eventually get out with one of two endings... depending on whether or not you found the Happy Coin, of course.
Like Escape from the Quiet Room and many before it, Scenic Room is as well done as a burnt hamburger. The bouncy accordion music somehow fits the atmosphere quite well, the visuals are realistic but not overwhelmingly so, and the puzzles are well-designed and flow perfectly. Some puzzles are old standbys (seriously, how do those pictures detect what corners you're handling?), some are new, and some are older than escape gaming itself. Just remember that 1 mL of water weighs 1 gram and you'll be fine. It all adds up to an excellent escaper that's well worth your time. Go and escape... or just sit for a while and admire the scene out the window... that works too.
