Few months ago we played a nice little game by Seal Dog (WE N°319) and could be seen then that the dev is promising. It wasn't just an impression - their latest game is an excellent escape in the best tradition of the genre. It's a pure joy to play it!
All components of the game are very well done - the graphics are simple, but what escapists are missing in the last months and years aren't the visuals but the content. And it's rich - clever and intuitive puzzles, with many fresh and interesting ideas.
You find yourself locked in a pottery workshop and the key from the door leading to the freedom is hopelessly broken into four pieces. You have to find all the pieces and then make a new pottery key - everything needed is in the pottery shop, a clay, tools, and a pottery kiln, too. Just look around and start!
This game is fair. The clues are clear and sufficient, though it may take a while to figure them out and realise how to combine them. Thinking out of the box is required - but the aha-moment(s) so satisfying!
This was good. Except for the clock puzzle, which I though had something to do with the oven.
Cute. Got ridiculously tripped up on the code for the upstairs six-digit box, though…
I thought that last word was MIKE. So I sat there thinking, "What on earth is TEACIP?" Felt mighty foolish when I realized I had overlooked the slash on the microphone—that word was MUTE. 🙃
This was a toughie but a goodie for me.
I brute forced the clock, as well as the middle one of the three dials in the box just as you come upstairs.
And I enjoyed the minigame within the game.
The clock puzzle
after you put a spoon and a fork on the clock face step back
there is a time schedule on the wall which starts at 8:00
set the clock at 8:00
there are two arrows below time 8:00, a black arrow and a blue one
the next time on the schedule is 9:05
to set the clock to 9:05 you need to click once the spoon and once the fork
the next time is 10:20
to set the clock from 9:05 to 10:20 you need to click an hour hand once (the spoon) and a minute hand three times (the fork) - and on the schedule is indeed one black arrow and three blue arrows
below 10:20 are three black arrows and one blue, therefore you need to click the hour hand three times and the minute hand once
it's 13:25 (1:25 pm)
The clue for the middle symbol on the box with 3 symbols upstairs
Play the video game-within-a-game, then take a second look at the TV screen.
Thanks, chrpa and kksl1der20.
I racked my brain on the clock one - did not see that hint at all!
