Escape game (GameDesign)
Room escape game lovers are in for a treat as Taro Ito weighs-in with his rendition of the point-and-click art form popularized by such games as MOTAS and the Viridian Room.
Escape game is a simple and effective game of its genre with all the usual mechanics, but without the pixel hunting that often accompanies games like this. Use your best clicking finger to find items, combine items in your inventory, and to solve the few puzzles that await. While most puzzles are straightforward, you will have to think outside the box with at least one of them.
Altogether a short game, but a rewarding one if you can figure out the one difficult twist yourself. It's not too difficult to figure out on ones own, though. The entire game will take you approximately 30-45 minutes.
