Kotorinosu released their latest escape Mimic at the end of March after two years of silence, and for mobile devices only. The graphics is more minimalistic and simpler than in their previous games...well, naturally, it's adjusted to smaller screens of mobile device (links you find below).
Cute small kitty - yes we play Japanese game - is locked in a house and can't leave without you help. The light and airy house is obviously not the kitty's place, no cat bed or a bowl in a sight, and the kitty wanders around with you, passive, and waits for your actions. There is much to explore and careful observation of the surroundings is required. Don't expect a pixel hunt, the graphics is clean and the details big enough, but some active spots can be overlooked.
The developers play a game with you and hid the important items and objects very cleverly but they don't cheat. No extra difficult puzzles or combinations of hints - everything is explained and logical. It's better to take enough time for the game and take a break from playing if needed before you look for help - after a break you may notice something you haven't before or see the scenes from a different angle. The effort put into the construction of the game is admirable and the result is excellent in all aspects. It's a joy to play it!
The game is controlled by a mouse and has autosave. It's available for Android and iOS too. Links you find in Mobile Monday N°275.
Notice, that the game may load veeery slowly. If you get black square only, leave it and wait, the loading may take several minutes.
