Weekday EscapeHi, welcome to the new Weekday Escape!


Amajeto locks you in a hotel room, and wants you to find eight tiles here. You surely find them, escape the hotel, have a short amnesia, and wake up in sinister Javelin Ltd.'s room not knowing what's going on and wishing to be somewhere else. Anywhere. That's not a problem (after you solve few puzzles), but you end up in another dark place, fortunately not so filthy, where are hidden ten golden coins - yes it's Dassyutu's game. The last escape is from luxurious Neat Escape's camper. Nice.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday Escape RetroA short trip to the past is here, it's Retro Weekday Escape time!

You start in Tototo Room's room with simple task - find eleven blobs and turn them into orange smiley faces. In Esklavos' poetic world you need to find four eyeballs instead, which don't turn into anything, they are your pass to the freedom, and after you leave it, Suzunari locks you in very classical escape room, obviously traditional Japanese one. Usawanhouse's room is a classic too, though well known fairy tale it plays with has an unexpected twist.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeThe midweek pause for playing is here, the new WE arrived!


You start in Amajeto's bar; and if you decide to leave instead of chilling here, tomoLaSiDo offers you alternative night activity - hunting (mutant) fireflies. After you leave, doesn't matter whether you've collected them or not, Dassyutu wants you to escape their miscellaneous room, where are hidden ten golden coins. And Nicolet, in their lovely game, takes you to a strange factory where everything is operated by codes - and you need to solve many good intuitive puzzles to discover them!


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeLet's play! The new Weekday Escape has arrived!


The main themes of this week's featured games are two, boxes and islands. Both Amajeto and Dasyutu have added containers to their living rooms, and seems that they've started new series. Nicolet's escape takes place on beautiful island without any inhabitans (human) and with many carefully constructed puzzles. With Yonashi, you find yourself in the dark alley at night, and only door which leads out of here is locked. And the island? Well you wouldn't believe it, but you can get from here to an island too!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHi, the half of the week is behind us and relaxing Weekday Escape here!


In the first and the second game, Amajeto wants you to escape from two colorful rooms. After you get out from the later, the blue one, another blue room is ahead, tomoLaSiDo's, and this time are retro office supplies hidden there. Flash512 wants you to escape stylish traditional room and did their best to make the game as enjoyable as possible for us, players.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday Escape RetroAfter a pause, it's right time for Retro Weekday Escape!

You start in almost empty Yomino Kagura's room, but may happen that you stay here a bit longer than expected - puzzles are clever and thinking outside usual patterns isn't easy sometimes. Then you may test your lock picking skills in Barking Games game, and enjoy clean and neat graphics reminding of early Submachines. Bad Viking takes you for exciting adventure from the world of top secrets and sunglasses worn all day (and all night if equipped for night vision). Very good Esc-Forest's game is pure classic.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Tatami Room EscapeWe've got a new game by Tesshi-e, huzzah!


You find yourself in traditional Japanese restaurant which offers extra service - while you wait for your food, you may try to escape the room with the hearth. They lock you inside, turn on soothing music and leave you on your own.

https://jayisgames.com/review/10-gnomes-in-oristano.phpOh where, oh where have my little gnomes gone? Apparently, off to Sardinia! This time, Mateusz Skutnik transports us to the quaint Italian city of Oristano. Following in the typical mode of operation from previous adventures, 10 Gnomes yet again requires some point-and-click scavenging for our titular creatures.

Weekday EscapeHi, Escape Wednesday is here with four new games!


You start in Detarame Factory's bathroom, and there is much to be done indeed. Luckily, virtual cleaning is much easier than the real one, so you can leave the room (very tidy now) quite soon - to find yourself in cute Nicolet's room full of clever and intuitive puzzles. The next stop in this week's serial of escapes is standard tomoLaSiDo's room with nice round window. The last comes No1game with their 200th game - really impressive number!


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeWelcome back after the week! New games are here!

This week we've got attractive Amajeto's room and moreover one late Easter greetings from the same authors. Quite long Nicolet's room, dominated by cold and closed fireplace, is very well done (again) and no need to mention that it's fun as always. Flash512 locks you in a room with still wrapped christmas gifts and a Christmas tree, and while being stuck and searching for a hotspot you've overlooked you may appreciate truly relaxing soundtrack.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeWednesday is here! Welcome to the latest Weekday Escape!


It's becoming a tradition - again we are starting in Amajeto's living room, being locked of course, and surrounded by relaxing blues and purples. Abruptly, you find yourself wandering around Selfdefiant's magical forest with only wish - get away from here as soon as possible, the night approaches and shining eyes are closer and closer...but don't despair, there are ways if you try! Then tomoLaSiDo traps you and doesn't let you go unless you find six key parts, and at the end comes Gotmail (SpiceApp now) with the remake of their old game.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeWelcome to the new Weekday Escape!

No surprises this week. You came here to play some good escape games, and that's exactly what you get - another stylish Amajeto's living room, new great game by Nicolet (not cube this time), and standard tomoLaSiDo's room decorated with red and white stripes wallpaper. And after you escape it, you should reserve some time for the last Selfdefiant's asylum. It's vast.

Have a good time and enjoy!

As a knight playing Russian roulette, you need to find a way to survive every round of a challenging game that relies significantly on chance.

CircloO 2If you've ever felt like you don't have quite enough circles in your life, Florian van Strien's CircloO 2 might just be the game for you. This minimalist two-button platformer combines ball physics and puzzling elements. Roll your ball left and right with the arrow keys to collect circles. Each time you collect a circle, the arena grows a little and you'll find a new circle to collect. Collect all the circles and you get to progress to the next level where a fresh challenge (and a fresh game mechanic) awaits you.

Weekday Escape RetroHello! This week we are going retro again, it's Retro Weekday Escape time!


The first game by Karabina-7 takes you on a journey around strange poetic world with the best postal services ever. Then you stay locked in typical tomoLaSiDo's room for a while, and then you set out for exciting adventure with Nifty - to the ancient temple consecrated to old forgotten gods. One more ancient temple hiding mysteries awaits you at the end of this WE!

Weekday EscapeThe new Weekday Escape is out! Don't miss! We've got something for everyone!


I'm not exaggerating - this week we have four excellent games in very different styles. Cute Nicolet's room with a lot of funny and clever puzzles. After a pause, Maroya returns with another chapter from the serie 'kittens settling in their new home'. After much longer pause (which took several years) a new Petithima's game arrived and it does take quite a lot of thinking and trying to escape! Rinnogogo's created anothed dreamy and overall lovely story. Very relaxing.

Hoshi Saga MonochromaticHoshi Saga is back! After a multi-year hiatus on the series, Yoshi Ishii blesses us with Hoshi Saga - Monochromatic. Following in the game's typical mode of operation, this episode has but one request: find the star.

Despite its black and white nature, Monochromatic is not without contrast. This time, with color out of the picture, remaining game elements like texture, shapes, sound, and motion are magnified, producing exciting and renewed gameplay through another lens.

Weekday EscapeWelcome back! Since it's Wednesday today, the new Weekday Escape is out!


About elegant Amajeto's living room is safe to say that you get what you expect - and that's quite a lot. Dassyutu leaves you alone in a basement and no need to remark that the door is locked. It's a code what you're looking for, not a key. Neat Escape lets you feel holidayish for a while, and gives you a chance to decide how to leave their dreamy island - quickly, slowly, or otherwise?


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeWelcome, it's time for a break - the Weekday Escape is here!

Again, we start with two Nicolet's tiny cubes, both lovely and overall enjoyable with their slick visuals and well-worked out puzzles. Dasyutu then introduces escape in classical style - basic graphics and focus on logic. After long pause we can help to three cats in their mission (or the other way around) - Chokochai is back, as adorable as always!

The Happy Escape - The Top Floor RoomAnd one more Tesshi-e appeared! Enjoy!


From the lowest floor of Escape Hotel - well I'm not sure about it but hotel restaurants are usually downstairs - you got to the highest one, to a suite with fantastic view. Ten happy coins are hidden in the room, and you obtain the key only after you find them. The coins can be elswhere, you need to open all cabinets, drawers, cope with the wobbling picture, get the batteries for the TV controller and more.

Bullet WaltzWith only one life how long can you survive a barrage of musically synchronized bullets?
As the name implies, Bullet Waltz is a game about bullets that move with music. The chiptune music by Radio Giraffe, works well with the classic arcade style of the game. Every time there's a beat a square "bullet" is shot from the center in a random direction, and the counter in the center of the screen will go up. The flow changes as the song does.

Weekday EscapeHi! Another week is over and the new Weekday Escape here!


Games from Nicolet are growing. Good, very good. Their sixth game is longer and more elaborated than the previous ones, with excellent playability! Then you spent some time in Amajeto's living room, from which you escape to Selfdefiant's tech room. The last comes very charming Rinnogogo's creation to warm your heart.

https://jayisgames.com/review/room-24-heisei-escape.phpAfter several lean weeks the fat one has arrived - we get one more excellent escape game this week!


Ichima Coffeedo's games are always quality, but this one is really satisfying on many levels - music, graphics and puzzles are working together very well and make playing fluent and enjoyable.

Weekday EscapeWecome! Four fresh escape games are here for your fun!


First you get trapped (twice) in Nicolet's cute tiny cubes - one full of daruma dolls and the second with someone's hats collection. Then in relaxing Amajeto's room decorated in many shades of blue. And finally in a room with ten hidden escape-men, in sequel to No1game's last game. You learn what happened to poor Dennis after the unfortunate Valentine's Day.

The end of the last year we had to do without traditional Santa's room and looking for ten happy coins (precisely, us PC players, as the game was done but available for Android only). Now, finally, we can enjoy it!

RainsweptArceusKilling characters at the end of the story, in my opinion, is a cheap way out. Having them die at the beginning takes courage. As the culmination of two years of hard work by developer Armaan, the full version of Rainswept is fully out and available. You may remember a demo of the project that I reviewed nearly a year ago. The story and prospect were something that entranced me, but little did I know that what Armaan had in store would be even greater for the finished product. Perhaps it was just a stroke of luck that created the authentic experience of waiting so long to find the answers to all the cliffhangers. And in this full version, you might finally get to the bottom of all the strange events in the shell-shocked small town of Pineview.

PenthosArceusI'd like to introduce you to Penthos, a game that somehow pulls of the feat of being endearing and heartbreaking in the same story. This game is a hybrid of a visual novel and exploration-driven genres, where you play as a narrator mostly in the scope of their home. As the game description itself hints, something feels off. You start to look around, entranced, trying to discover what exactly feels so wrong.

Weekday Escape RetroHi! It's time to travel to the past - the Retro Weekday Escape has arrived!

Weekday Escape starts slowly with simple Jan's Room's room, and after the successful escape you get trapped in another room of theirs. Well ballanced puzzles and eye-pleasing graphics guarantee good playability in both. Masa then locks you in botanical garden in tropical plants greenhouse. The gardener left in the middle of replanting succulents and the firm door slam shut behind him...and all you can find are small wooden blocks. What they are for isn't clear...will you figure out? The last pinkish, soft and fluffy game by Usawanhouse is truly relaxing.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHi! The week is behind us and you can play again! The new Weekday Escape arrived!


Diligent Nicolet ported another cute cube for PC full of apples and codes, and after you escape it, you may connect with your inner pyromaniac in tomoLaSiDo's room and then unleash the passion for fire in KaboKabo's late Christmas game. Beautiful Rinnogogo's creation starts in perfectly equipped tree trunk apartment - who would expect a bathroom and a kitchenette inside a tree - and takes you for a flight at the end!

Weekday Escape
Hello escapers! I'd like to inform you that the new WE is out!


Nicolet released the second game for PC, and it's very enjoyable indeed. And clever. Also good looking! After escaping their "cube", tomoLaSiDo locks you in the room with view on endless green field. Then you accept an invitation from Neat Escape's friend, again, and end up trapped in their house. Again. It's your fault, you should've known better. Now you must try hard to get out of here!


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHi! Let me welcome you to the new Weekday Escape!


Again you start in cosy Amajeto's room, and after you fight your way through all the codes you will find yourself in nice small room by Nicolet. Hopefully we'll see more from them, such a game with clean and polished graphics and clever puzzles is a pleasure to play. No1game tricks you (not for the first time) and what should have been a quick shopping trip turned into much more - into hunt for green sneaky guys. Bonus game by InkaGames is purebred adventure in nineties style.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeWelcome back after a week, welcome to the new Weekday Escape!


We are still deep in winter mode, but developers begin to feel spring in their hearts. Flowers, colors, green gardens and more flowers. Amajeto has decorated the room with flower pictures. Sarameya's lovely town bursts in colors at the end (if you do what you're supposed). Selfdefiant wants you to help to cute Marly the Mouse lost in lush green garden where everything grows a few inches every time you blink your eyes. And game by Rinnogogo is all about flowers, finding them or growing them by magical ways.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeWishing you peaceful Wednesday with the new Weekday escape!


Reliable Amajeto introduces another pleasant room you need to escape from. Then you can refresh with a beverage from tomoLaSiDo which strenghthens you for a jailbreak - you'll need much energy for this! One of Neat Escape's friends leaves you in his guest room to entertain yourself - so you try to escape from here, there isn't anything good on tv anyway.


Have a good time and enjoy!


Weekday Escape RetroHi! The Weekday Escape is here and this week we are going retro again!

From not-so-retro Funkyland's cute sweet shop and their Mr. Frog you escape to Miyabure's room. Watercolor art and music create pleasant atmosphere here, and the place is peaceful enough to concentrate on puzzles. Hottategoya's room is very peaceful too - seems you are imprisoned in solitary confinement. After successful prison break you get stuck in Naoki Nakashima's bathroom without any special equipment - toothbrushes and a soap are your tools!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHi! Playful and colorful Wednesday is here with four new games!


You find yourself trapped in Kamonosoukutsu's room and again you meet few civilized animals here. With their help you escape to cosy Amajeto's room and no surprise here - nice game as always. No1game's isn't surprising too - find ten little escape-men (more and more cunnig during years of hiding) which can be anywhere in the room. Mummies in Dassyutu's room might seem a bit dangerous, so don't wait until they come back to life and escape!


Have a good time and enjoy!

FallstreakArceusVasantJ has concocted another whodunnit for your exploration pleasure. Those of you who follow along with these series might not be surprised to learn that someone has been killed again, and there is a murder mystery to be solved. It entails an unlikely combination of archeology, a mummy, smuggled, powerful drugs gone wrong, and a professor driven to madness before finally succumbing to his final fate. Although the place is locked down, and it seems like just another investigation: the standard examination of clues, the interrogation of, I mean conversation with uncooperative witnesses, and the eureka moments upon finding clues, things are about to get darker before the cast sees the light. The only question is: is there something lurking in that darkness to get them? And what lethal weapon might Dregg have in his pocket to combat it?

Monster Squad It's every kid's fear of the creepy neighbor -- the kind of secretive, mysterious shadow man that Mom and Dad usually brush off. But with Michael, is it unjustified? Or is there a real possibility of him meeting his demise if no help arrives?

Fortunately, our resolute protagonist doesn't see that as an option. In this point-and-click titled Monster Squad, Michael jump starts his journey as a paranormal investigator. This debut is possibly Carmel Games' reveal of a new series, one that is analogous to the well-loved Vortex Point.

BLACKBart Bonte's is back with BLACK!

Bart Bonte has completed Belgian flag finally - after YELLOW and RED, fabulous BLACK has arrived! At the moment, the game is available only for Android or iOS devices - PC version will be later (last time it took several weeks).


Your goal is to turn the gamescreen pitch-black in each of fifty unique levels, so you need to solve fifty different puzzles to get congratulations for completing the game. The game covers broad range of puzzles as both predecessors, and you need all what's inside you, wits, intuition, logic, memory and quick fingers (luckily, not super quick). And patience and selfcontrol, new phones don't grow on trees, you know. Clean touch screen of your device helps too.

Note: BLACK is now available for Browsers

Weekday EscapeHi! Welcome in 2019 with new Weekday Escape!


Kamonosoukutsu locks you inside a room with Mr. and Mrs. Duck, and you goal is to find something for Mrs. Duck. MysteriousBox's games are getting better and better; the new one is smart, good-looking, and with relaxing music, pleasure to play. Short game by Carraka introduces Zoe, mythological enthusiast, and her night adventure with several gods. Neat Escape wants you to escape his friend's comfortable apartment.

Finding 2019 isn't easy, but what would you expect from such an important task, after all? Fortunately you don't need to fight 2018 which seems reconciled to its destiny, 'only' jump a lot, and it's a good think that while trying to pass not-so-easy levels (again and again) you may admire dreamy magical lands and fantastic constructions, listening to atmospheric music.

FallstreakArceusIt does not require anything special, you might argue, to open many parenthesis when telling a story. And to that point, I would reply: yes, but it is a true sign of mastery to satisfactorily bring each and every one of them to a close. That is how I would best describe the twisting story in the land of Socotrine, a timeless reality suspended above the life of one little girl in the winding narrative crafted by Centicerise.

Weekday EscapeThe year is over. Merry Christmas to all of you with Christmas Special 2!

Whether you like it or not, this time of the year is here again, and the Weekday Escape brings several Christmas-themed games, peaceful and relaxing. Amajeto locks you in their typical living room, fully decorated in red and green. Nekonote takes you outside to dreamy snowy land to help to deliver presents. Rinnogogo wants your help too, and it's urgent - Christmas would be ruined without it! Esklavos lets you on your own in deep forest, and you need to make some presents to get out. Bart Bonte doesn't want you to escape from anywhere, you just need to get through forty puzzle levels.

The Doll ShopArceusRomance and horror has always been a rather passionate combination, don't you think? All too often some innocent girl falls into the trap and awaits some horrible ending. I'm not going to spoil anything too much here, but The Doll Shop comes with an interesting twist: it is you who play as a man who might just play a pivotal role in the story. Add in some more intrigue with the disappearance of a little girl and the beauty of hand-drawn graphics and you're in for another treat by Atelier Sentô. We've previously reviewed two titles by them, Yûrei Station and Sango - Tales from the Coral Cave, but The Doll Shop definitely brings something new to the table.

Weekday Escape RetroIt's time for the trip to the past, it's Retro Weekday Escape time!

This WE is one-dev show, all games it contains are exclusively by Neat Escape (except bonus game). Few years ago they released five shorter escapes, with the rooms following one after another and located in the same building. Also, collected items are transferred from chapter to chapter so you can use them in another room. Puzzles are clever and using items very intuitive - not many creators allow you to use an item which you would use in real life, but insist, instead, on finding special tool. Not Neat Escape. Very well done!

Bonus game by Fuamu is simply gorgeous.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHello! The week is over and another Weekday Escape here!

Back to the roots of genre! Three escape games - by Maymay, Dasyutu and Maroya - are very classical and as close to the core as possible, just puzzles, codes, hints and clues. Graphics is basic, no music, only clicking sound here and there, and no story (almost). All three games are very well done though and definitely entertaining!
Neat Escape, on the other hand, is colorful, with polished graphics, pleasant music and a lot of adrenaline.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHi! It's time for a break and time to relax with the new Weekday Escape!


Another Kamonosoukutsu's game recently ported to PC arrived - you visit beautiful room of Ms. Dog this time and need to fulfill her request to get out of here. Then come two games by tomoLaSiDo, in the first one you can try your drawing skills, and in the end of WE waits Selfdefiant's asylum. Prepare for a tough battle with Evil! Higher rank forces have apparently developed resistance against sacred objects (no wonder after all the successfully exorcised buildings), so you have to upgrade your methods of fight too!

Crown Dungeon 2One sunny day, our yellow eyed hero from Crown Dungeon by DrawManEater is having a picnic with his pumpkin head friend, when suddenly a portal opens in the air and greedy hand steals his friend's head!

Once again, you have to help the hero to get through a set of dungeons in pursuit of something valuable and precious. This time it's not lust for gold and power what drives him, but concern about his best friend. The hand clutching the pumpkin entices our fairly angry guy further and deeper to magic labyrinth to face dangerous creatures, their perils and lethal traps.

Weekday EscapeHi! The new Weekday Escape has just arrived!


This week we got three very good games, all quite long and nourishing. The first one is by the last WE newcomer Dasyutu who wants you to escape cosy place with many books. After a year pause returns AppGoya with quality game, and proves they still have it - hopefully their next game comes earlier! Finally you find yourself in Yonashi's strange room with strange devices (which you must find first) and strangely behaving animal(s)...

The Racoon Who Lost Their ShapeArceusLove can come in all sizes and shapes - and in this case, literally. Join a racoon for his journey to find his special someone - a crescent lost in a house fire a long time ago. Together with an extraordinary coincidence, this racoon has inherited the ability to talk to these "shape-people" - which bears no explanation other than that they are people that are shapes - from beyond the veil of death. Sometimes his clientele ask to simply pass on a message, other times there is some unfinished business left with spirits still on the more lively side of things. But still, the racoon keep searching for his lost love.

HoraceArceusAsimov's robots may have had three basic rules, but those are still three more than the main and title character, Horace, is endowed with in the first game from author, developer, coder, and pretty-much-everything-else Paul Helman. Magically emerging into the world with his own consciousness, Horace explores everything with an endearing combination of curiosity and naivety. After five years (or is it now six?), Paul is ready to share the fruits of his indie labor with you - and if you can believe it, it's only going to get better for the future, full version!

Weekday EscapeHello and welcome! Yes it's Wednesday again and this means new Weekday Escape!

Luckily for PC players, Kamonosoukutsu recently ported few games from Android to PC so we get two this week! Meet Mr. Bear and Mr. Tiger, and try to get out from their beautiful residences! Next escape is from classical Dasyutu's room, and you need to find red maple leaves here, so instead of running around woods and picking them, you can do that virtually, and continue in No1game's autumn game; however, more important is to look for the cunning green guys there - their mimicry is a bit useless this time...

Have a good time and enjoy!

Return of the TentacleArceusIn a debut of a fan-beloved original, Day of the Tentacle, Return of the Tentacle delivers a thrilling, pun and comedy filled point-and-click adventure. Purple Tentacle is back with an ambitious plan to conquer the world, seek revenge, and worst of all, wants to make sure to kill you first! What's more there are the two telltale signs that it's not some lookalike or wannabe. One: he left a note scrawled on purple paper! And two: it's signed at the bottom, "Insincerely Yours, Purple!"

Weekday EscapeThe 200th Weekday Escape is here fully loaded with awesome games!


By a coincidence, we got several great games to this round anniversary. From Amajeto, one more escape under full moon on Halloween night, with glowing pumpkins everywhere around. From Rinnogogo charming and poetic story about cats emotional live and magic. From Detarame Factory lovely game about girl, her chipmunk and hot-air balloon, and from Flash512 another dungeon escape from medieval castle. Bonus grow game by Jon Schubbe is almost as old as JiG and much, much fun!

Forgotten Hill: Little Cabin in the WoodsWhen does "taking liberties" go too far? Like the lost episode of a Brothers Grimm story, Little Cabin in the Woods - A Forgotten Hill Tale is a twisted take on the mundane. This latest work from FM Studios is quick and to the point -- an abbreviated, self-contained side story installment of Forgotten Hill.

Weekday EscapeHi everybody, this is Halloween Special Weekday Escape 2!
BOO! It's Halloween time again! Only Halloween themed games are featured this week, starting with two Amajetos, as good as always with quality and solid puzzles, but different in their visual aspects. Usawanhouse mixes horror and humour to create funny game (successfully) and the same approach takes atmospheric Esklavos with lovely art on top. No1game entices you with the promise of a Halloween Party to a dark apartement...curiously enough, the promise is true, you just have to catch few green guys before the party begins. Minoto wants you to get ready poor hungry bear for trick or treating!

Gone FirefliesArceusThere is a saying that you can't appreciate the good without having some of the bad, and that sometimes you don't know what you have until it disappears for good. Gone Fireflies is a game about love, loss, loneliness, and maybe a bit of empathy mixed in. You begin as detective James Reed called out in the middle of the night to investigate an apparent suicide of a woman and the disappearance of her husband, Thomas May. You play as both men - the detective and the husband - as you try to untangle the story that runs deeper within them, in the process discovering the connection between.

Luger's Prison PalaceArceusAfter coming home to his besieged kingdom, Luger Huntress finds himself imprisoned in the arms of another, along with his beloved sister Lotti. Much to his horror, he finds that his sister Lotti is to be engaged to one whom he regards as a heathen, a member of House Greaval. Ultimately having no other options, he reluctantly bides his time in the castle, where he begins to make himself at home. But even as his plush surroundings begin to grow on him, and he sees the House's royalty in a gradually more positive light, he can't help but be reminded that a gilded cage is still a cage nonetheless.

Weekday Escape RetroIt's time for a break - Retro Weekday Escape brings four games for your fun!

You get lost (twice) in Esklavos' lovely small world connected with ours by magical gate, locked by four locks at the moment unfortunately. After you escape it (twice), you find yourself in Ichima's room without any visible exit and with several secrets which make game more entertaining than expected. Suzunari's room is absolute classic with many clever puzzles.

DopplegangerArceusIn Doppleganger, you have the (mis)fortune of having to chase after your perhaps insatiable curious cat. It ran straight into a temple full of booby traps and mystical powers, and it looks like you're going to need to follow it in and coax it out. While Schrodinger may have posed the problem of whether a cat in a box is dead or alive, in In Doppleganger it looks like your cat is always somewhere you're not looking! Your task is to journey through this temple and see if you can find your feline friend, with the aid of some unusual platforming mechanics.

Weekday EscapeHi! Quality time ahead - the new Weekday Escape is here!


All three games in this WE are pleasing the eye - Amajeto's latest creation with changed graphics is attractive and neat, blue and white, and also practical, as players can't overlook any item. MysteriousBox takes you for a trip to the mountains and autumn afternoon atmosphere is amazing here. The last game by Ichima is another island adventure - islands, especially tropical ones, are really suitable for relaxing escapes with their blue sky and sea, yellow sand and green palm trees, and sounds of waves. Seagulls though are silent or flew off.

https://jayisgames.com/review/bestluck.phpBestLuck is a mystery emotional atmospheric adventure game. In the infinite growing forest, you only lean onto the girl to find a path and solve the puzzle by witnessing clues that are visible only through certain door frames. Its atmosphere has ambiguities between what horror-game has and what romance game narrative goes.

Get Hired!ArceusYou are a henchman in the infamous Gotham City, and unfortunately, a henchman seeking a new job. Dissatisfied with your current boss, you think surely it can't be too difficult to land a new gig. After all, what's the worst they can have you do to land the position? Spit in someone's face? Toilet paper their house? Get reference letters from your previous boss? All nope, nope, and nope, but you're getting warmer. Who would have guessed that your task would be a job interview?

Weekday EscapeAutumn is coming, days start getting shorter - good, more time for playing!The Weekday Escape is here!

This week are all three games animals themed; the creators' approach to animals is different though. The room by tomoLaSiDo overflows with tame chipmunks which can be easily catched so the only problem stays to find them. Kamonosoukutsu's animals are very civilised, wearing human dress, knowing how to use a chair and even having human wishes. Dassyutu's animal is predatory and ferocious, maybe hungry too, and very dangerous. Will you escape?

Owned ByArceusWhat do you see when you look in the mirror?, Articallosaurus begins by asking us in an innocent-enough seeming question. You are presented with three options in the form of shapes, showing you a square, a triangle, and a circle. And as if to forebode something ominous, an eye appears on the screen, blood-red and boring into your skull in a somewhat less than friendly way.

Cube Escape Paradox - Chapter 1This time, everything starts coming together. The latest Rusty Lake project, Cube Escape: Paradox has arguably the most unique player experience in the series. Accompanied by a short live feature (which I personally recommend watching after finishing Chapter 1 - it contains some spoilers), Paradox blends amazing production value and multimedia elements with the gameplay that Rusty Lake fans know and love. The game is divided into two installments, with Chapter 1 free to play (donations encouraged), and Chapter 2 available for a minute fee.

Weekday EscapeWelcome! New Weekday Escape is here, relaxing and entertaining!


You start locked in tomoLaSiDo's room, where are hidden six blue-and-white capsules (necessary for escape) and five little fans (side quest); however, you have to deal with the fans in the main game link too. Then Kamonosoukutsu - no, not a new developer - just one more alias of Kamotokamotokamo - takes you to a small café and makes you hungry with all the delicious desserts they offer here. MysteriousBox wants you to escape strange place looking quite like spaceship interior - but after you get out of here, you aren't in the space but in Shiesuta's living room. And you stay here for a while, as puzzles are many.

RoboBlasterPoofyMade for the GBJAM 6 by Daniel Moreno, RoboBlaster is a very bit tribute to the GameBoy version of MegaMan. The little RoboBlaster acts, handles and shoot exactly like MegaMan which, in my opnion, makes it very familiar and very cute. The game acts like a very solid MegaMan clone, and I honestly think that when the dev puts more time in this project (this game was made in 4 days) he would have a solid full game upon his hands.

Toodee & TopdeePoofyToodee liked to walk left and right, he also liked to jump. It was a good day. Topdee also liked to walk around. But instead of jumping, he liked to push crates and boxes around. Toodee and Topdee were quite different, but they both ended up walking into a portal. That's how the story of Toodee and Topdee begins. Made for the Ludum Dare 41, Toodee and Topdee takes platforming to a new level. You control Toodee in a platform/sideways mode, while Topdee is controlled from a birdseye perspective.

Monkey GO Happy RoundupArceusHave you missed the monkey roundups? Well, if so you'll be happy to see another round of them coming right up!

Weekday Escape RetroThis week is retro time again - the Retro Weekday Escape is here!


Let's try a bit of sympathetic magic. If we rejoice in beautiful games by favourite devs, maybe we get a new ones...who knows? So, we start off by Vitamin Hana's game. It's one of their first, but as good as any of later creations and fun. Hottategoya then takes you to a set of courtyards obviously built for escape purposes only (the builders spared no expense). Lutaru's room seems like an exhibition of some kind, of sport equipment perhaps, and after you escape it, atmosphere turns darker and heavier in Usawanhouse room...hopefully you get out of here in one piece!


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday EscapeHi! Hope you've a nice week so far! Now is even better, with a new Weekday Escape!


Joyful room by Amajeto is perfect kids room - everything what should be here is here, fluffy plush animals, toys, books...and also several coded drawers, so before you can play with the train or explore the upper bunk bed, some puzzles must be solved and codes cracked. Then you get to the room by MysteriousBox and don't forget to look out from windows before you escape, the surroundings worth it! Quite cosy Flash512's dungeon totally lacks skulls, chains or manacles...still, there is something typical for dungeons...let surprise yourself.

Knotty StoryA game about an adorable kitten, coupled with an amazing music score, creative story, and an absolutely beautiful art style?? I'd say HECK YES! Cat games are few and far between in a dog loving world, and GOOD cat games are even harder to find. So if you're a cat lover like me, or even if you're not, don't pass up on Knotty Story!

Weekday EscapeThis week on Weekday Escape! Four new games and more!


Minoto, master of lovely short games explains some not generally known details from skunks' lives. In short TomoLaSiDo's game you meet another cute animal, similar to a skunk, and No1game shows you interesting backstage of telecommunications company. Truly relaxing game by Flash512 wants you to escape a room with a lot of locked drawers and cabinets.

Soul PieceArceusIn the beginning, there was an epic battle between two ancient souls, one embodied as Chaos, and the other as Peace. After a prolonged struggle, Chaos won, and its executioner Darkness shattered Peace into many pieces. And yet, the war was not yet over, for a single shard of Peace managed to escape. In a stunningly beautiful two-and-a-half dimensional one-man indie platformer/puzzle game created by Yasser Reda.

DIET
This time, you are the puzzle! Eyezmaze is back at it again with some original gameplay in DIET. Although still set in classic point and click format, this latest browser game takes a break from the Grow series. Players are transported to a world in which one is unimaginably gargantuan and desperately in need of a weight loss regime. Russian nesting doll meets sliding block puzzle as you navigate a building where codes serve little purpose, and the key to unlocking doors is yourself.

Weekday EscapeHi, new Weekday Escape just arrived fully loaded with new games!


Amajeto, up to date as always, takes you within view of vineyard in grape harvest time. Dassyutu then locks you in a room which purpose is not clear but your task is - escape from it! In Neat Escape's horror game you might wish to be anywhere else than in the room where you are threatened by unnatural forces - but they won't attack you, don't worry - you won't stay long anyway!

The Town With Only You and MeArceusImagine a lonely little town, with only yourself and one companion. And in fact, even your one friend there together with you in a bizarre virtual space is somewhat less than real. Play from several different perspectives as you help a girl named Aisleen navigate through, hoping to full the artificial intelligence with the vivid and original sense of persona that is her own. Can an AI learn its own set of tricks and master difficult human concepts such as humor? There's only one way to find out for sure.

Weekday EscapeIt's Escape Wednesday, the peak of the week! Welcome!


Amajeto is still in summer mood and locks you in a shack somewhere nearby water and doesn't let you go fishing or boating until you solve all the codes and puzzles here. The game by tomoLaSiDo evokes spring and introduces very special device never seen or heard before - you may leave without getting it working though, it's side quest only, the so-called Dandelion Quest. Short adventure by IcyOak leads you to small sandy island in the middle of vast sea and your reward is heap of gold! Minoto doesn't give you any reward, just inner smile.

Weekday Escape RetroRetro Weekday Escape lets you travel to the past - have a nice time there!


10 Color Dots softly locks you in tender pastel room with a nice view. After you leave it, you find yourself in another, hmm...not room, but...a place, a bit dada maybe, and poetic - created by Strawberry Cafe. Another lovely room follows, it's by Sanpoman, and before all that cuteness and sweetness turns too much, you arrive into Yeahm's room and this is something completely different.

You are allowed to return to civilisation only after you catch all of them. Neat Escape promises a reward for escaping - fantastic! Getting paid for fun! Where do I sign up?

Pinewood IslandNote: Pinewood Island contains sexual situations, including an implication of an attempted assault.

Would you go to a remote island for a month to get college credit? This might make visiting Pinewood Island seem like a good deal until you find out that the island has no cell phone access, no internet and no boats to take you back. And just when you think things couldn't possibly get any worse, your professor is murdered while you're stuck on the island. Now there's a one month wait until a boat returns and you can leave. How will you spend it?

Crown DungeonArceusWho would ever want to be king? Apparently, you! Someone's stolen your crown, and you need to get it back, pronto! A greedy hand holds your most precious possession tauntingly out of reach, and no matter what you do, it seems to yank it back right at the last moment. It looks like you're going to have no choice but to play their game, through a mysterious 34 (don't ask why that number!) levels to try and earn it back. But if you thought that this quest was going to be a pushover, think again: you will encounter all sorts of deadly obstacles in your way at every turn, and you'll have to think carefully before clicking your little guy - otherwise you may well end up sending him to his doom!

HeraclosPoofyImagine strolling down a road, minding your own business. You just went grocery shopping and are holding a few bottles of your favorite drink. And suddenly, out of nowhere, you trip and fall flat to your face. When you take a quick look, you'll find out it's actually an amphora that made you trip, and to make things worse a giant hand descends down from the clouds. That particular hand suddenly orders you to climb Mount Olympus to deliver that amphora to the owner of the hand. Why the hand isn't picking the amphora up right there, has me stumped. Does this sound weird? Giant hands descending from the sky, tripping over amphoras that aren't in use anymore. Well, you're not wrong, but this is the story of young Heraclos and in ancient Greece, things like this happened all the time.

The TrolleyArceusIf you live in a city in certain industrial parts of the United States, you might be familiar with the concept of a trolley, built to take workers up and down a steep hill from their residence to their workplace generations ago. The Trolley is a 3D, storytelling experience that takes up the tale of the disassembly of such a vehicle in an unnamed midwestern town. In it, you play as an employee charged with the psychologically challenging task of tearing it down. There is no demand for such an artefact any longer, so it's only logical for them to want to remove it and make way for something else. Right?

Weekday Escape RetroAhoy, yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum! Piratey Retro Weekday Escape is here!


Pirates from Esklavos' Pirate Coast sailed away and their ships can't be seen anymore, but you are supposed to escape the seashore in different way, through magic door, and your task is to open it. Selfdefiant takes you to a pirate ship, but you aren't so lucky as you might have thought; the captain behaves strangely so you decide to leave as quick as possible...and eventually you land at Creepy Island and it's creepy indeed!

With UsawanHouse and Suzunari you join two girls in their hunt for old pirate's treasure.

Faraday's FlawArceus It has been a while since we've covered one of CarmelGame's point-and-click games and their unique aesthetic. In this latest adventure of theirs, you play as a character Gus, whose day starts off as any other with your boss at the pizza shop screaming at you to be more efficient with your deliveries. Mysteriously, one of your orders is to be taken to your Uncle's lab, despite Gus being keenly aware of his Uncle's distaste for the food. Nonetheless, after some effort to search for the entrance, he brings it over. One thing begets the next, and before you know it, Gus is at the center of hatching a plot to win a city-wide contest! But if you think Gus only wants to enter this contest for the prize money, your heart will be warmed as you discover his real motivation to try and claim top prize, and why he'll do anything to attain it.

Don't Starve TogetherDon't Starve Together is an inexpensive game that is easy for anyone to pick up. As an addition to the Don't Starve series of dark humor survival strategy games, Don't Starve Together has an expansive ever-changing world with many ways to play. In the original Don't Starve, after choosing a character to play as, you had to figure out how to survive a ridiculous and deadly environment with limited instructions. But playing through mysterious potentially-fatal nights and fighting monsters makes you realize - your odds of survival would be a lot better with someone watching your back.

This is where Don't Starve Together comes in. The game allows for up to six players to join in on the chaotic fun on one server. The gameplay is similar to other games in the series, but you don't need to know a previous game to play. The controls are simple, the game play is much more challenging.

Weekday EscapeWelcome to the summer season with the new Weekday Escape!

And welcome in cosy and colorful Amajeto's living room full of puzzles and with three well hidden keys. In another room by tomoLaSiDo is hidden one key only, but cosisting of six parts; and besides there is lot of grated vegetables. That girl at the toilet graffiti seems very happy about it. The third escape is by Neat Escape and takes you to a hotel, again, this time quite a basic one, but sufficient. You aren't going to spend a holiday there, anyway - if stuck, there is a helpful walkthrough.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday Escape RetroIt's a time for looking back again - time for the Retro Weekday Escape! Tateita puts you into prison of some kind; and you are innocent! That's not fair! You can shout as loud as you can, but no answer...well, seems that you have to help yourself somehow...and the absence of guards definitely helps.

Hottategoya's escape terrace is a bit jail like too with all the bars around, but the sky is mediterranean blue, sunny and cloudless, so you may feel almost holiday-ish. Yeahm shows you surprizing approach to the genre and Minoto very surprizing approach to well known fairy tale

Have a good time and enjoy!

Wolf's BaneArceusIf you've browsed JiG frequently over the past year, you might have stumbled across my reviews of some of VasantJ's games, including the Medieval Cop and Medieval Angel Series. From this same creator comes another game of the same sort, a spinoff around the beloved, slightly-more-positive-than-Dregg (who are we kidding, that description is pretty empty!) detective Amber Heart. Starting with the innocuous enough premise "A flock of sheep walk into a bar," VasantJ soon tosses us into the newly 3D-rendered world of Amber Heart conducting an interrogation at a murder scene. It seems she's hellbent on using some techniques that would scare the daylights (or a confession) out of anyone!

The DeepArceusThe Deep is a tactical D&D style game, married with the style of RPGMaker. Made originally for a contest (Indie Game Maker Contest 2017 on itch.io), the game features a world where humans used to live underground, trapped as slaves to monsters. In this world they were also prohibited from using magic or weapons of any kind, so the only option open to them was learning to use their bodies to fight. Once they finally managed to earn their freedom and break into the surface realm, they quickly learned that life above ground was no picnic either. A race of xenophobic elves with no tolerance for anyone else attempted to wipe them out. Fast forward to a couple of centuries later, and peace seems to closer, and worse yet, only a small band of humans still posses the skills to defend themselves.

Weekday EscapeWelcome! The invitation to play is here - the new Weekday Escape is out!
Maymay doesn't want you to collect fruits or candies - it's fixing time. You are do-it-yourself guy now and the game gives you valuable know-how which you may use in real life. Amajeto kindly provides a shelter in heavy rain...and suddenly locks you in. Without any rest you need to solve many puzzles to get out (and get soaked, probably). Finally you get home with No1game, but your apartment is unbearably hot - your mother says, that if you find ten green escape men, they would help...do you believe her?

Have a good time and enjoy!

You Left MeArceusLast fall, I wrote about beautifully rendered, short point-n-click game accompanied by a suitably haunting soundtrack from Zephyo, I Woke Up Next to You Again. Since then she's published many others, most recently a game in a similar vein of style with a slightly more exploration-based feeling to it. Much like the previous title we reviewed here, You Left Me deals with a difficult topic with splashes of color amongst the melancholy, contrasting warmth with crushing sadness. To set the scene, you wake up in another world you do not recognize, with nothing but your bed floating up in space, the moon looming large in the sky above you, a most unusual feline friend by your side, and oh yeah, a fridge floating nearby because why not?

The ButlerArceusWhite gloves, fine suit, cleanly shaven. There was always something suspiciously precise about your butler, lurking just beneath the surface. A feeling that there might be something of pure evil just beneath the veil of lies. Something surreptitiously slinking submerged by the subservience. If you're the kind of person who has nightmares about, of all things, a potential butler, I'm afraid this game isn't going to provide you with much reassurance!

I Remember The RainArceusIt's funny how the mind works sometimes. It can fixate upon the most abstract detail of an evening when tragedy struck. And such is the focus of Jordan B's I Remember the Rain, which tells the emotional and devastating story of that one evening in the character's life. Just like its namesake might imply,I Remember the Rain focuses on the little details and illustrates the feeling of loss in a poignant way through visual storytelling, excellently accompanied by voice acting, soft music - and yes - the sound of the falling rain.

Weekday EscapeIt's Wednesday and since it's Wednesday, it's time for relaxing break!

Luckily for us, escapers, Neat Escape is very fertile last months! In this remake of their older game you wake up in a depot, in empty coach obviously designated for escape. After train escape Selfdefiant entices you into dark asylum (the bait is your girlfriend), shuts the door behind you and doesn't let you out until you exorcise it. With Funkyland you visit much friendlier place - nice cafe with top notch interior design and beautiful inner garden.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Tales of Nebezem: Gnomish PlotArceusIn the strange world of the northern lowlands, governed by the Order, lies a thriving society built on community. Taken to the extreme, they even believe that all children belong to all of society communally. To this end, you follow the journey of a lumberjack alongside his trusty son, who he must deposit in the care of the Children's Home to be raised by mentors. Unfortunately, along the way, he encounters some nature-dwelling gnomes that have their own ideas for the human child. Gnomes may be generally harmless, but this isn't stopping our tree-felling friend from taking matters into his own hands and getting his son back!

Bomb Squad AcademyArceusNormally, if someone tells you to have a blast, it's to wish you well and hope that you have a great time. Things are somewhat different, however, at your new job in the Bomb Squad Academy. As a matter of fact, your very occupation is the antithesis of making things go boom. Your objective is to successfully diffuse electrical circuits hooked up to a live (virtual, fortunately!) bomb and disable them, often with a timer running in the background. You'll have several instruments to aid you in your task, including wire cutters and the ability to flip switches thus controlling the path of electrical circuits.

Weekday EscapeHello! The new Weekday Escape has just arrived! Aries Escape takes you to a karaoke room - not to test your singing skills and voice, but to prove your escaping ability. In case you pass the test (you will, I'm sure) tomoLaSiDo locks you in another room - a familiar tune plays in the background, and you need to find six balls (to get out) and eleven kettles (if you wish). Neat Escape wants you to escape from beautiful castle by the sea and your final escape is spectacular!

Cautionary TaleArceusOut of a bunch of visual novels I've checked out recently, Cautionary Tale is probably one had some of the most work and love poured into it. Despite the name, there are actually three stories contained within this game, and quite honestly, any of the three could stand on their own merit as an independent game. These narratives are as follows. First, when Alex Kartha is given a full scholarship to attend a prestigious boarding school, she hopes she can finally leave behind the things that have haunted her ever since a fatal car accident involving her and her parents. Second is what seems an ordinary winter day, with Eli about to confess to his childhood crush. And finally, you'll experience "The Flood," the story of a girl about to become a woman about to turn eighteen, having vivid nightmares of the apparent impending doom of becoming an adult.

Weekday Escape RetroAfter a long pause, Retro Weekday Escape is here for your retro fun!

We start with two games by Strawberry Cafe, both about bunnies heads spotting - sometimes you pick up some item, too - still, thinking where you haven't looked yet and where is hidden another bunny consumes most time. The silhouettes are not running around like the green guys, at least. Tateita takes you to the room with good and interesting puzzles, and finding their solution is satisfying. In SuzumeDr's locker room are eight smaller puzzles (how to open each locker) and one big (how to deduce the code for door lock from ten hints).

Medieval Angel - My Uprising Part 2ArceusIn the first part of this episode, author of the Medieval Cop/Dregg Morriss VasantJ saga left us hanging on all the important questions. Questions such as: how will Amber Heart and her friend Mel Vin ever escape the fowl play at the hands of the chickens? How do you launch a sneak attack if your friend insists on screaming upon entry? What awful puns will they have to endure this time?

Note: Before playing this game, you may wish to check out the previous episodes in Medieval Angel series, as well as Part 1.

Warning: If you haven't played Part 1, this review may contain plot spoilers. Proceed at your own risk!

The Shadows That Run Alongside Our CarArceusThere's no time for an explanation. Hop in the car with a complete stranger and have him gun it. You're in too much pain for anything else as the melancholy of it all comes crashing down on your heads, like a tarp thrown suddenly over the world. Not a lot seems clear at the outsight of this venture other than the beginning of the end is settings in, as both of your eyes droop with the need for sleep. The gas in the car is only going to last for so long and inevitably, it seems the car will come to a stop at some point. In the meantime, the only question is how much you want to confide in your newfound partner, and whether you will survive the upcoming night.

Weekday EscapeAnother week is over...really...but that means that another Weekday Escape is here!

You wake up locked in a hospital room without pain or any injury...having amnesia - this could be a start of dark thriller, but Neat Escape decided otherwise, and a good escape game was created! Relaxing Den of the Kamo is soft and tender, with plenty of books and clever puzzles - retro Hottategoya's game just thematically fits with all the books.
Your collegues are hiding somewhere around your work place in No1game's game...you know them, green sneaky guys, they are able to hide anywhere, even change their size and looks...will you find them and will you capture them?

Have a good time and enjoy!

Practice RunArceusThese days, there seem to be robots for almost everything. So why not outsource a robot to a difficult, complicated, and very nuanced task. That's right, you've conscripted your favorite robot friend, Chip, to simulate going on a date with you!

There's a saying that all's fair in love and war, but what about cheating? Oh no, not the cheating on your lover kind, but cheating the system! After all, in Practice Run, your sole objective should you choose to accept it, is the accumulation of Romance Points. Perform well, and you will score points! Perform badly, however (like, not taking a shower in three days), and watch your score take a tumble.

Good ImpressionPoofyThe Adventures of Elena Temple, what's in a name. You're playing as Elena, an archeologist, or maybe simply a treasure hunter, that's exploring a temple which kind of feels like a forbidden and hidden sacred place. The temple is filled with traps, blocks that break when you step on them, snakes and giant bats. No worries though, Elena is armed with her trusty gun. A gun that can only hold two bullets at the time, but there's extra bullets scattered throughout the temple so you will never run out. Now the fun thing is that you have to use those bullets to solve puzzles. Yes, every room in this temple has some sort of obstacle that you have to conquer, it can involve disappearing platforms on which you have to jump on to get to higher grounds, or it can simply be because snakes are blocking your path forward.

Disaster Log CArceusYou are a scientist, and the writing is on the wall. The signs are dire and you cannot help but comprehend what is happening. Your island has seen a torrent of rain like you have never seen before, day after day. You've grabbed whatever you can carry and stuffed it into a makeshift boat to seek temporary refuge from your floating prison, to continue to take measurements faithfully until the end. Just as you push off, you're thinking to yourself: surely matters can't get worse?

Weekday EscapeIt's Wednesday and that means it's time for a relaxing break - let's play!

Amajeto's living room has slightly changed, but otherwise awaits you solid spring mood game. The second game by Lutaru, on the other hand, hardly can be called solid - it's crazy and weird, strange and bizzare. And fun. We get back to normal with Dassyutu and their room escape - apart from usual content (puzzles and clues) are here ten golden coins to be found!

Medieval Angel - My Uprising Part 1ArceusAmber Heart, unusually cheery for a detective in the kingdom of Rightia, is about to be faced with an adventure bigger than she can imagine. As she drifts through the unconsciousness of sleep, she can barely make out the voice of someone trying to talk to her, to tell her everything will be okay and she can handle it. Then, before long, she comes to, and realizes there is empty space all around her, and her bedroom has suddenly been relocated to...the middle of nowhere? Unless, as she jokes, Grandma has done some overnight renovation!

Good ImpressionPoofyAhhhh the life of a bachelor, you have your own apartment, you decide what to eat and when, and nothing stands in your way. But then, you get a text from your mom. She's in town and wants to visit. There's nothing wrong with that, you love your mom, but your place is a mess and you want to leave a Good Impression! It's time to clean up and you only have 3 minutes to do this!

Weekday EscapeMake some tea or coffee, find a pen and piece of paper, the new Weekday Escape is out!

We start with Neat Escape in a hotel, where you find yourself locked without a key and without a breakfast. After you escape, tomoLaSiDo locks you in another room, where is TV which surprisingly doesn't need remote controller (it's probably mind controlled) and more or less hidden fifteen strawberry cakes. Lovely Denofthekamo's game is overall pink, relaxing and full of cute animals and toys.

Snowed InArceusThis is the story of a young girl named Tabitha. Now before you groan in your chair thinking it's going to be some cliché little thing, let me get to the point and inform you that it also involves a mysterious cottage, a terrifying witch, and most notably, a potty-mouthed badger named Colin! In this slightly more adult version of a fairy tale, Tabitha is placed into a snowglobe (a "thing which all witches totally have) in a burst of magic that "no amount of artistry effects could hope to capture in seventy-two hours." There is a nice warm cottage, but as Tabitha's luck would have it, the door is locked firmly shut. Can you find a way in to continue the story?

Murdercide 2017ArceusWelcome to the future of 2017, dudes and dudettes, and it's like, totally rad. Or so you might think if you're freelance detective/police officer Jonathan Murphy P.I. Jonathan spends most of his time casually surfing the 'net catching up on the latest "dank memes," probably more even more so than actually working. It all takes a serious turn (or does it? You paying attention, Jonathan?!) when there's a case of "murder gone deadly" (are there non-deadly murders?) and you're pressed into service alongside a couple of old buddies. Or, as Jon might put it, it's "time to go crime-solve a crime!"

Weekday Escape RetroThe new Weekday Escape is here and it's retro and overall green!


This week we are going green - all games are by no1Game (except the bonuses) and they are fun!

Standard no1game's games are whimsical and a bit weird, often with some pixel hunt and sneakily hidden areas, but their goal is always the same - to find ten green escape-men. Games vary though, sometimes is the style different and sometimes they seem like created in collaboratin with some other designer - like the first one in this selection. Other two are typical, a little on easy side, and their not-so-popular features reduced.

Bonus game for this WE is by mad0 - charming, beautiful, and very atmospheric.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Just One BossArceusStep right up, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! You're on a small 5x8 platform and a magical mirror has appeared, beckoning you to battle. Your opponent fancies himself as a magician, no wait, the ringmaster of the show. He's got all sorts of tricks up his sleeve as well - he can make flowers spring up on random tiles. Remember that saying about every rose having a thorn? There are going to be plenty in your side if you don't manage to dodge the spots. Next, pick a card, any card-ouch! Don't let their sharp corners stab you and deplete your health. Finally, he'll flip coins down onto your arena, limiting your already cramped space further.

Pillow of StoneArceusYou wake up the same way as you have for as many days as you can remember: behind bars, locked away from your family. It's just another day, and it is time for you to rise and shine. There's work to be done, even as you trudge through the slow, somber melancholy of prison life. One day, though, you have a sudden urge to do something different. It seems innocent enough: you want to give a teddy bear to your daughter. There's only one small thing you must do to get there: break out of prison first!

Weekday EscapeThe first spring full moon is behind us, so is Easter. Now back to normal, new Weekday Escape is here!

It's too early for strawberries (greenhouse-grown don't count), but both Maymay and Amajeto delivered games about them - maybe because they are red and fotogenic - and it sounds much better to tell 'find strawberries' than 'find cucumbers'!

With Neat Escape you get to a popular restaurant, but you are left on your own - how will you cope? Can you escape it, and if yes, with full or empty stomach? The last, and the only Easter game by Esklavos is a bit surreal and so cute!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Sango  - Tales from the Coral CaveArceusA few months back in the good old days of 2017, I reviewed Yûrei Station, with not only its unique take on the style of narrative driven by beautiful hand-painted scenery, but also as a project accomplished with the help of brilliant young artists. Today it is a pleasure to share another installment in the same spirit of collaboration between adult coders and budding artists. But don't think Atelier Sentô simply rehashed things - this time, you'll explore a pair of adventures in the Coral Cove, and find that although the story is completely new and fresh, the tale is no less magical. A boy lays lazily in the sand next to a cat, with a set of colored pencils, a book, and an unbounded imagination. When you click on it, though, he'll eagerly sit up and show you the world he has created through pictures.

SinkrIanNow and then a puzzle game emerges that feels like a breath of fresh air. In the case of Sinkr, a 2D puzzle game by Wahler Digital, this is achieved largely through the minimalist design of the game's visuals and the originality of its mechanics. The game starts you off with a deceivingly simple task: guide the pucks home to their circular zones. To do this, you are given an array of hooks that you pull along in a set direction by winding a winch-like hexagon. Simply click and hold the hexagon to set the hooks in motion, using the grid in the background as a positioning guide if needed. The introductory levels are a breeze but things quickly become a bit more thought-intensive as new mechanics are added and combined in interesting ways.

Fragments of EuclidArceusPerhaps the word "mind-bending" is bandied about a bit too much when it comes to puzzle games. Nevertheless, I have the feeling that Nusan's Fragments of Euclid might be as worthy of the accolade as any other contender.

If you're not familiar with Euclid, he was a Greek mathematician known for being the founder of geometry. And boy, there is quite a bit of it in this twisted world of staircases and all sorts of geometric patterns that fold back on themselves. The game starts you off in a simple tutorial to introduce you to the machinations of this new geometric world. Despite there being little color and mostly shades of gray other than the occasional blue object that you can maneuver, the world is anything but dull.

Temple EscapePoofyMade for the Movie Game Jam 2018, Temple Escape is an action platformer based upon Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. You're an adventurer that resembles Indy, but lacking the whip, and you have to collect treasures in the form of coins and gems, dodge enemies and find your way to the end of each level. The overal quality reminds me a lot of some old DOS games like Dangerous Dave, where you basically have to do the same thing, collect treasures and reach the end of the level.

Weekday EscapeWishing you sunny Wednesday, the new Weekday Escape is here!


Flatsan wants us to play a game with one scene only, and in addition, completely grey scene - that doesn't sound very promising, right? Don't let this description discourage you, it's a good game and fun! Escape Game Club's game isn't simple escape game - it is in fact - but technically it's a challenge! Blue-haired Mono-chan has prepared this room by herself and the rules are simple - if you aren't able to escape - you lose. If you escape successfully, Mono-chan would be very frustrated! Her revenge would be another and better escape game...good, I hope you get out of there! Funkyland is still absorbed in beauty business and so they lock you in a nail salon.

Have a good time and enjoy!

PictopixArceusIf you're into both puzzle games and mathematics, Pictopix might just be the match made in heaven for you. The premise is simple: start with a grid of a given size, and fill in the tiles according to simple rules. Numbers next to each row and column indicate how many blocks of that row must be filled in, and if there are breaks between streaks of these rows. Each of these puzzles has exactly one solution, and can be determined purely by logic. Once you fill out everything - assuming you've not made any mistakes, which can happen if your powers of deduction slip - it'll complete into a picture as a little bonus. Will you make a tire, a swan, something else? Play Pictopix and watch the puzzles take shape before your eyes!

The World Begins with YouArceusYou come to your senses in some sort of ancient temple, shortly after being told you've been asleep too long and you need to wake up and leave the place (a bit cliché, I know, but stick with me here!). Ruins surround you, and you don't quite remember where you are or what you're doing here. You are a small, humanoid type creature with a small light near your head - at least, it appears to be your head - as what will sometimes be the only light to guide your way. There don't seem to be others around, so you may well be taking your journey in solitude. There are scratchings in a form resembling hieroglyphics around you that you can seem to make sense of. Will they guide you on a path to enlightenment or just lead you on a wild goose chase?

Mimi's Delivery DashPoofyMimi's Delivery Dash is the winner of this years Movie Game Jam! And how can it not be? It's based upon the anime Kiki's Delivery Service and the premise of the game is to collect orders and deliver them to people, using your broom. Yes, you've read that right, you're a little delivery witch and you have to fly up to people waving at you, grab their item, and fly to another person that wants that item. That way you will earn money (and if you're fast enough a bonus) which is your score. Oh, and you only have 3 minutes to get the highest score you can.

CHUCHELLong time ago we met little black dwarf with red pointy cap in charming little adventure Shy Dwarf (Plachý trpaslík) by Jaromír Plachý. Nine years later the same designer introduces another black creature in pointy cap, but fluffier and definitely not shy! His name is Chuchel, has a big mouth and isn't afraid to use it - it's yelling and singing, jumping and running around and making faces like slapstick entertainer - and slapstick film is the genre which the game resembles a lot, it's crazy and funny comedy composed of sketches.

Amanita Design's CHUCHEL is not one big adventure like Machinarium, the storyline is very simple. Chuchel loves cherries, d̶e̶u̶s̶ manus ex machina tears his cherry from his mouth and frustrated Chuchel is trying to get it again and again...and repeatedly loses it, being followed or outrun by Kekel, who apparently loves cherries too and in their Tom and Jerry-like relationship is the smaller (and sneakier) one.

Weekday EscapeHello everyone, Wednesday is here with regular dose of games!

Colorful and joyful game by Maymay is warm-up only - Masa, on the other hand, tests your escaping skills, observation and deduction thoroughly, and if you were ever wondering how do tent manufacturers test water resistance of their products, you'll learn now. The last entry in this Weekday Escape is by no1game and Wanpa; and brings very well-done game (more adventure than escape) with few rooms to explore...that's good concept, if you get stuck in one room, you can go elsewhere and not brood over one puzzle and overthink it.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Dismantlement: Box Lunch 3It's the magic of Japanese point-and-clicks to create something out of seemingly nothing. One clue following another, one step leading to the next, makes players realize that there's so much more below the surface. In Dismantlement: Box Lunch 3, the surface happens to be just that - the top of a bento box.

RainsweptArceusPineview is a pleasant, serene town tucked away in the country, safely hidden away from the both the hustle and bustle and the sometimes traumatic events of city life. At least, that's the way it was until a few days ago, when the peaceful tranquility was shattered by a double shooting. A now not-so-happily ever after couple lay brutally murdered in their home, bullet wounds readily apparent on both their bodies. You've been called in to help investigate the scene and get to the bottom of it, but oddly enough, the police and detectives already there seemed convinced that everything is all wrapped up. Even as you have your doubts and begin to look at things - the scene of the crime, the witnesses, the evidence - more carefully, it seems the local police are adamant on the opposite approach, insisting that what happened is clear and merits no further checking. Do they have a point in that things are sometimes as plain as they seem, or are they a little too concerned with their holiday weekend over a couple of people's lives?

Weekday Escape RetroMake time for a trip to the past, Retro Weekday Escape is here!

Do you feel flat or tired? Cheer up, this Weekday Escape is full of magic! Enchanted forest, magic gemstones and a dryad in Esklavos' game! Astrology and zodiac signs in HintSan's game, with cameo of Sherlock Holmes! Magically changing maze in Denofthekamo's game! Well, the changes depend on your actions - but they are magical!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Quit the game to winPoofyQuit the game to win is not an easy game to win, sure the premise is to Quit the game, but let me tell you that it's harder than it looks. You're being challenged by the program itself, and as it says in the beginning pressing 'ESC' and 'ALT F4' aren't working. You'll have to find another way to Quit the game to win. At least the program is thinking along with you and helps you find the 'X-Button' that disappears right in front of your eyes.

Faraway: Puzzle Escape PoofyFaraway: Puzzle Escape is a mobile point and click escape game that can also be played in your browser. The game opens up to a title screen where a gate can be seen, or it might even be a portal since there's something glowing. Immediately you see two buttons where you can download the game for The Google Play Store and/or the App Store.

The game itself has stunning visuals and a very relaxing ambient soundtrack. The puzzles itself are pretty logical and in each level you have to find a tablet that will fit on the top of the next gate so you can activate it. But there's more to be found, besides the portal tile you also have to find 3 notes. You don't need these to finish the level, but they will explain the plot to you since they look like notes a previous traveller has left behind.

Weekday EscapeWednesday is here with three escape games for your fun!

The first in this Weekday Escape is Tototo Room's room, nearly the same as last time (and last last time) - snowmen playing outside are the same too, probably, but puzzles are brand new and fun. Ichima takes you to the mountains in their new game (which is a bit trickier than usual) and let you enjoy the rest of winter. With Selfdefiant you set off for adventure in abandoned asylum and rescue your lost friends from dark powers!

Have a good time and enjoy!

FanbotsArceusA cast of robots, apparently discarded by their human masters, have arrived on the faraway, abandoned planet of Koruuna at an abandoned production studio. But these aren't just any old heaps of programmed metal. The robots seem to have garnered a sense of sentience, and yearn for entertainment, something special to fill their circuits in the absence of orders from humans. After all, it's not hurting anyone if they have a little fun when there's nothing else to do, is it? Just like humans need hours at night to recharge their batteries with sleep, so do robots require a little extracurricular activity to ease their circuitry once in a while. And in fact, as the infamous author Isaac Asimov ascribed, by the Third Law of Robotics, "A robot must protect its own existence so long as such existence does not conflict with the First or Second laws." The drudgery of one's own existence is indeed a threat, after all!

Developer Spotlight: <br/> Interview With Thomas BrushIanThomas Brush (Atmos Games) is a rare breed of indie developer. A veritable powerhouse capable of not only designing beautiful and engaging games, but also programming them, scoring them, and animating them. Brush's most recent game, Pinstripe, was met with critical acclaim from players and reviewers alike, and his brand new project Once Upon a Coma knocked its Kickstarter campaign out of the park, reaching the initial $28,000 goal within the first 24 hours. You may be familiar with his work already as he's certainly no stranger to this site. If not, I would highly recommend checking out his free to play games, Coma (a prequel to his current project) and Skinny, to say nothing of Pinstripe which is also so very worth your time and money.

Not since Undertale's Toby Fox have I found myself so utterly impressed with a singular designer and I am very pleased to be able to share this interview with you that Thomas so graciously took the time to take part in.

Hi everybody, long time no see. While looking through the web, I have found a little game that I'm sure you'd like.

Spab is a game made for Ludum Dare 37, with the theme of one room. You probably know a couple of games from that competition (like levelone), but this entry was uploaded just a few weeks ago.

E.X.I.T II - The BasementThe last game by Kotorinosu is here and it's fantasic!

Amazingly creative Kotorinosu has always been among the greatest designers (do you remember Mirror Escape, Device or innovative Pixel Room?).There was very long and silent pause after which they returned with E.X.I.T. (WE N°155); and this game is really pleasant surprise! Full size, well-designed and elegant puzzles, and perfectly logic.

Weekday EscapeAnother week is over and a brand new Weekday Escape is here!

At first there is some work to be done, Maymay traditionally wants you to repair something. After fixing what you can, Masa closes you into a small laboratory - research worker is gone, the door locked and you have to find out the right code to open it. Finally, one of numerous Neat Escape's friends invited you to their villa, but before you get the dinner you are looking forward to, there are some obstacles to overcome! Unexpected obstacles, not broken doorbell or a dog running free...

Have a good time and enjoy!

Enter Once Upon a Coma: Chapter 1, a partial reboot of the previously rave-reviewed Coma. This short teaser once again follows Pete, the young boy who woke up from a coma only moments ago, as he attempts to piece together what happened in his life and to his family.

Weekday EscapeWinter is still strong, no signs of spring yet - never mind, stay at home and play! The new Weekday Escape is out!


The first game is by Escape Game Club, a very promising newbie - their game is number 0002 - that's the spirit! Hopefully, we'll get more from them soon, with that enthusiasm! Factory.112 returns with a beautiful game, maybe a little shorter than you would expect, but otherwise it's perfect. Riddle Escape gives you a chance to experience a little adventure - explore and escape very unusual underground place.

Broken RealityArceusWelcome to the future. The supercorporation NATEM has formed and taken over the internet. Don't let the image of an old-fashioned, boxy and bulky computer on the tin fool you - NATEM has taken the idea of the internet to an entire new dimension, literally. Gone is the two-dimensional interface known as a computer screen, a notion that's so yesteryear. Now, you'll interact with the web in a three-dimensional environment, where web sites appear as physical spaces, ads appear in various places in-game, and you'll even encounter obstacles like malware. Oh, and did I forget to mention, the vernacular has devolved into that of an internet chatroom as well? Move over n00b, you're not even basic level yet!

The hotel has to be kept in tip top shape, the guests are always in need of a room service delivery, and foreign government agents are smuggling secrets across the border! All in a day's work for our petite protagonist. It's your first shift at the extravagant Maquisard Hotel and you hardly have time to get acquainted with your duties before a masked revolutionary tunnels through your bedroom floor and tasks you with identifying a government agent hiding among the hotel's five valued guests. The catch? You have only three days to catch the spy, so act quickly!

Zombie Society Dead Detective: Brain DrainAlthough this time of year we are hanging Christmas rather than Halloween decorations, zombie society goes on (un)-living all year around! And if you're in that kind of mood, a belated adventure awaits you in the tale of Zombie Society Dead Detective: Brain Drain. It seems that a certain brain has been stolen from a brain farm. It's not just any ordinary brain though, but an inedible brain! Who would want to steal a brain they couldn't possibly eat? Naturally, the zombies called the zombie police, but after a sluggish response, decided that the zombies in blue would be no help, as it's technically not even a crime to steal an inedible brain. That's when they considered a second option and you come in - Detective Margh to the rescue. You've built up quite a reputation by now, after all, for solving a number of famous cases.

Curse of GreedPoofyWho recalls the story of King Midas? He who turned everything to gold when he touched it. The Curse of Greed has a thing like that in common, as you jump over platforms in a world filled with traps like spikes and lasers. All around this place are scattered coins, coins you can pick up, coins you want to pick up, because that's what you do in platform style games like this. Coins give you a higher score, right? Well, not this time. In this game your health bar fills up with gold, every time you pick up a coin and that means two things, one your health depletes and two once your health bar is filled to the brim with gold, you'll turn into gold and it's game over.

In Amajeto's game are hearts everywhere, according to its title; and to tell the truth, the place is overdecorated a bit...simple tomoLasiDo's room with amazing window may be a relief for some of us. It's seeming relief only. Little do brave escapists know, that another battle in the war between good and evil takes place in this cosy apartment! After you win it - and you will - you have to escape from Neat Escape's friend's house and short game by Minoto at the end brings a piece of nonsense poetry into your life.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Submachine UniverseSuspended from time and space as we know it, will you be able to make sense of it all? Welcome to Submachine Universe, an innovative Mateusz Skutnik endeavor joining a new gaming experience with the well-known, well-loved series. Set in iconic Submachine style, players are led on a scavenger hunt-esque adventure spanning various dimensions - some old, some new, and some with a twist.

At the time of its initial launch in 2010, Submachine Universe's distinction was being one of the only massively singleplayer online (MSO) games available. And despite its conversion in late 2017 to "free HD downloadable," Skutnik successfully maintained the aura of vastness and exploration that comes with MSOs.

I Want Out!A little boy has somehow gotten himself trapped in an underground room, with no clear way of escape readily apparent. The room - a large one, if you want to call it that - looks like a discombobulated entanglement of a subway station, the Sistine chapel, gothic architecture, and of course, scattered rubbish taunting laying in wake of several would-be escape route. Despite your attempts to question the boy as to his surrealistic surroundings, how he might have gotten there, or whether he has any ideas on how he can exit, the boy seems to know but one thing for certain - he wants out!

Rusty Lake has become one of the gaming community's favorite vacation destinations and the developers are responding to this with a string of projects that seem to only increase in scope. With yet another game already in the works and a short film planned for future release, Rusty Lake shows no signs of slowing down. Rusty Lake Paradise (available for PC, Mac, Android, and iOS) is the latest addition to the already extensive series, and is the third premium game to be released along with Rusty Lake Hotel and Rusty Lake Roots.

Sweet game by Sanpoman locks you in a room with dangerous looking flower. Don't be afraid of it, it can't bite you and not being a triffid, it stays in its flowerpot. With Hottategoya you get lost in a maze for a while and after you leave it, there is a labyrinth by Gatamari where awaits you a battle with evil spirit. Very late Christmas present waits for you at the end!

For those who hate mazes and labyrinths - try Robamimi's Kumakinoko or Fake, perfect one room escapes!

Piko Piko PoofyPiko Piko is a game about girls with hammers. That's seriously what this is about. You're a little red haired girl, with a humongous hammer and it's your job to.. to.. I haven't really figured that out yet. The game is in DEMO state, and while the audio is amazing, the controls are doing what they're supposed to do, and the visuals are looking very good already (tho, that one boss wielding a red trident isn't really done yet) there is no clue to what the plot is about in the amount of time I've played the game. My school got exploded, Nyankamoto (apparently a friend) has a tiny crush on me and I've seen my teacher getting kidnapped by robots. Are they evil robots? I can't tell.

Dear EdwinRetro platformers and other genres seem to be in vogue these days, but the title Dear Edwin moves the goalpost a notch further. Take a step back to the height of the industrial revolution and into the life of Edwin Vayne. Once a prominent detective, he has long since retired, until one day a strange letter pops into his life. Helplessly intrigued, Edwin decides he must follow the story himself and get to the bottom of a peculiar and very complicated tale.

Weekday EscapeIt's Wednesday and week's dose of fun is here, the new Weekday Escape has arrived!

Spring is far ahead, spring cleanup too, but Detarame Factory locked you in extremely dirty room and you have to deal with it, willingly or not. Oh well. Luckily, cleaning virtual room is much easier than the real one, and you have more rooms to tidy up! Amajeto's bedroom is pleasant, or precisely, would be if there weren't pesky green creatures with red eyes flying around and disturbing. You must do something about them otherwise you won't fall asleep. With Funkyland you get to luxury Beauty Salon and it's a unique chance to see such a place - normally they won't let you in unless you're movie star!

Have a good time and enjoy!

ExtractionYou've woken up in some strange places before, but this time your surroundings are something new. Are you trapped in a room, or an underground bunker? Or perhaps on a spaceship of some kind? Perhaps there might be someone else to help you uncover your whereabouts, if you know where to look. It appears there are more rooms hidden away, but they're locked behind some sort of key card access. And checking your pockets, it seems that yours may have picked a particularly bad time to go missing in action...

Although the protagonist this time isn't exactly set to transform into a beautiful butterfly at the end, this worm needs your help to eat, eat, eat, and grow in length. But this word of gluttony also has hazards such as spikes, gravity, and a snake-like twist of accidentally eating your own tail! Can you navigate the worm successfully through all of the levels?

1998Welcome to the world of Audrey Bhatt, entering her final year of high school in her small, sleepy hometown. For most of her life she's felt only bitterness and contempt for others, and she's finally started to realize it's been dragging down her childhood the entire time. Associating with other people feels useless to her, and she avoids interaction with nearly everyone, having no real friends, much to the despair of her mother. But when someone new moves in, some of her cynicism starts to melt away as she realizes he may not be so bad. Will this be a start of a friendship, or will her fears and habits destroy any chance at that?

Klepto  - Space ThiefA kleptomaniac, as those of you in the field of letters may know, is someone obsessed with collecting and hoarding things. The aptly named Klepto is character in our focus, preparing himself to steal...something. The developer and game don't provide much backstory, so the natural assumption is that Klepto the pig was bitten as a piglet by a radioactive spider possessing artificial intelligence. This gave him the ability to be sentient along with an appendage enabling tasks like grappling and gliding like a propeller. What's that you say? Don't believe me? I invite you to come up with a better theory!

Weekday EscapeHow about your New Year's resolution? Everyday in a gym/pool, right? You should get some rest, too. The new Weekday Escape is here!

Tototo Room locks you in their room which haven't changed much from your last visit. Apart from minor changes, things are on their places and all the blobs grey again. After you turn them orange and happy you go to Neat Escape's ramen shop for a snack and look! They are offering live escape experience - which true escapist would resist? And then are coming two short games from promising newcomers, SBK Man and Hild Soft!

Your faithful companion by your side, you leap through vividly colored areas and solve puzzles, each becoming more intricate than the last and building on previous mechanics. In the end your guide is to escape the mysterious temple in which you wake, with no particular rhyme or reason other than being trapped... "again."

The Lost Strawberry PoofyThere's moment when you just... crave something. It can be a drink, it can be a fruit. In this particular case you're after strawberries, which is not a very odd request. It is when you need to platform yourself through different kinds of levels. It get even harder when the background visuals start to interfere more and more with the actual game assets.

Knights of GaiaThe world of Gaia is certainly a strange one, but also one where there are few dull moments. The story begins introducing us to Jhet, a lonely farmer who is but a boy, yet has inherited the massive responsibility of his father's farm after his father's death. We're not given much information about the untimely nature of these circumstances, but instead jump straight in to try and help Jhet find his footing in a world where he has big shoes to fill.

Weekday EscapeThe new Weekday Escape is here to brighten year 2018 from its start!

Vitamin Hana usually brings colors and joy to your gaming life. This time takes you to a basketball gym under maintenance and succeeds again. Reliable Riddle Escape stand up to their quality standards and delivers another great game. The last one is from a newcomer - I'm happy to introduce Daikokuya Soft! Very cute, clever and amusing game they've created and I hope we meet again soon!

Have a good time and enjoy!

The Sky HousePoofyWhat if you wake up some day and you just want to go outside to get some fresh air. Oh, did I forget to mention that you're also some kind of flying creature that lives in a flying house that's filled with lethal spikes and such? Yes, it's not easy to go outside as this little metroidvania game proves.

Tsure Game 10Welcome back in Lutaru's world and prepare for good escape adventure!


From excellent, more or less standard escape Tsure Game 7 via Tsure Game 8 (WE N°152) and Tsure Game 9 (WE N°162), with growing feeling of alienness, we get to a very Myst like world to explore ruins of lost civilisation! Alien or not, luckily for us these ancient builders knew achievements of mankind like Roman and Arabic numerals and used them so we players are not completely lost.

PalettaOnce upon a time in a land not so far away, there was a King who wore a crown of many different colors, who ruled over the land and its people. The King was benevolent, prosperity abounded, and everyone loved him. But one day someone got a little too jealous for their own good of his crown, an artifact passed down to him by the gods and only befit for one true ruler of the people. A would-be thief intended to steal the crown and use its powers for their own nefarious purposes. Unfortunately, the robber-to-be dropped it in the ensuing chaos and it shattered into a number of pieces that become scattered across the kingdom, ultimately coming into possession by different people. Without its magical powers, the King withered away, along with the color and joy of the land. The princess fled after his death, leaving the kingdom in shambles and no leader. The shards were bartered and grabbed by different humans, harnessed individually for their still great power, but with far less benevolence than the previous wielder of the crown. This leaves one question...who will save these dying lands now?

ISLANDS: Non-PlacesWe exist in the world as people defined by the places we go. We go to work, we go to the mall, we go to the doctor's office, we go on vacation. Always thinking in absolutes, we so rarely spend much effort considering the places we pass through on the way to the places we go; the bus stop on the way to work, the parking lot outside the mall, the waiting room outside the doctor's office, the baggage claim at the airport. But what happens in these wistful places where we spend so little of our time? What greater purpose do we not see as we merely pass them by?

Quidget the WonderwienerPoofyYou're Quidget the Wonderwiener, a genius dog and best friends with Peninja and it so happens to be that you need to deliver a present to him, but how...? Well, you are a genius, and you own a labratory, AND you have a lovely assistant named Beatrize, so it shouldn't be that hard to find a way to deliver a package, right?

Weekday Escape RetroThis week on Weekday Escape is Retro Edition time and that means three wonderful games from past!!

At the beginning Esklavos takes you to the North Pole to see Santa and to give some discipline to his little helpers. After you finish your task, it's time for short relax in pleasant Hottategoya's room and solving few puzzles there. And then comes Gatamari's game. It's something special. It's hidden gem. It's Mother of Ecape Games, maybe the longest escape game ever. Loads of puzzles, hours of gameplay, tough, but not discouraging. It's perfect!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Sol705What do you get when you combine a point-and-click featuring retro graphics with UFO sightings and a club devoted to observing extraterrestrial phenomena? Well for lack of a better word, you get Sol705, the club's namesake, trying to entertain themselves during a (whole) week of vacation. Of course, part of the greatest mystery for this group of boys comes in the form of interaction with what might feel to some of them like an extraterrestrial race: the opposite sex!

Weekday EscapeStop thinking about Christmas, now! Take a break, the new Weekday Escape is here!

Playful game by Tototo Room is short, but sweet (literally) and clever. Riddle Escape takes you to beatiful temple at night, nobody's there, only you and puzzles and they give you a katana to play with! Who would resist? Sadly, you have to leave your katana behind...you would find use for it in Selfdefiant's asylum...well, you have to get something else for dealing with evil spirits there...

Have a good time and enjoy!
