Arguably some of the best Flash point-and-click, room escape games have come from the Gotmail team of Japan. And within the past 2 weeks they have released 3 new games, but only one of them has an English translation so far. We like to wait for an English version before we feature a review since there is usually some narrative that goes along with this type of game if done well. And the Gotmail team does them exceptionally well.
Enter the Vision Museum. You have been invited by your favorite celebrity to visit the VIP-only trophy room of famous performers at a local museum. You enter and, like most room escape games, you can't get out. Using your point-and-click finger and puzzle-solving prowess, collect items to solve puzzles in this gorgeous graphic adventure.
The game is actually an advergame for Vision Factory, a Japanese management company that promotes Japanese artists and pop stars, such as Amuro Namie and, the boy band, Lead. In fact, the game features a music video by Lead as one of several cut scenes in the game (Thanks Joye!), so if you're on dial-up, or have an aversion to advergames, you may want to pass this one by.
We'll be back with more Gotmail reviews just as soon as the English versions become available.
Thanks to Master for submitting this one. =)
