Weekday Escape - Retro Edition N°1
Hi! Let me introduce the first Weekday Escape Retro Edition! Once upon a time, in The Golden Ages Of Escape Games (about 4 years ago) were so many games released that not all good ones did it to JIG. Nowadays, when the ages are not so golden, is right time to go back for a while and appreciate them.
The first game, a true little gem from Amanita design, is more about looking for friends than escaping, followed by Sanpoman´s game, where you escape an island and finally, the longest one, is a full lenght escape from Kuroneko.
Have a good time and enjoy!
The shortest game in this Weekday Escape is a little pill of hapiness with instant effect and replay value. Today, Amanita Design is well established independent game development studio producing full games. This one from their beginnings is made for music group The Polyphonic Spree. There are just three screens for playing, but sooo charming and full of magic, perfectly fitting the music!

At the beginning, click the left button for a start. You find yourself on a beautiful and peaceful Toaran Island. You know how to escape, there is a balloon behind some trees, but how to get to it? Well, by solving some puzzles, of course. There are some signs in japanese, but you don´t need to understand them to get through. For navigation, use side bars and also arrows, and if you get stucked, try to search for a new location, some can be easily overlooked as navigation is a bit clumsy. On the other side, wandering around the island surrounded by pastel colors and omnipresent cutness is a pleasure!

Escaping from Study Room is not easy (you definitely need a piece of paper or two for notes). It´s also one of the best escape games with style reminding of Robamimi or Neutral. There are many clever puzzles to solve and some items difficult to find. You need good observation and logical thinking to get through! Changing cursor at hotspots can be helpful, also, check the collected items carefully!
