Summer Night Escape
TomaTea understands what makes an escape-the-room enticing: it's not what you're escaping from but where you're escaping to because, when you begin a TomaTea escape, you are transported to a place you'd relish being trapped. In the case of Summer Night Escape, this is especially true: a warm, star-filled eventide when time pauses and all seems right with the world. Isn't that what escape games are for? An opportunity to forget everything else and to let go in surreal surroundings, where solving a few puzzles is all it takes to hear, "Congratulations! You've found success!"
Summer Night has smooth, intuitive navigation (click the sides of the screen to change direction) and exploration (a changing cursor indicates hot spots; click them for a closer look) with cohesive puzzles that rely in equal parts on your power of observation, your ability to make logical connections, and your ingenuity. The balmy August evening atmosphere is alluring and, as you search for clues in this three-room scene, cricket songs serenade you. Because Summer Night Escape is rather short in length, it is also not so long or involved that it becomes more work than play; experienced gamers are going to knock this out of the park in one swing, yet Summer Night Escape gives its players a bit of a challenge, a lot of fun, and a moment to gaze at a starry sky.
