Weekday Escape - Retro Edition N°3
What do you know about bears private lives? Did you know they like fish? Probably yes, but did you know they also like motor boats? Not many people do, but Robamimi certainly does and she kindly shares her knowledge in Bear´s life with us, less informed mortals.
Talking about private lives, what about flowers, specifically tulips? Do you know, which tulips get along well together, and which are unhappy if coupled? Sanpoman knows it and tells you much more in Tulip room.
In all three games is some Japanese text(s), but you don´t need to understand to get through.
Have a good time and enjoy!
One of the earliest Robamimi´s games, a very beautiful one, takes you to a seaside house. Owner of the house, a big brown bear, is there too and is a bit stubborn (and hungry) at the beginning but later helps you to leave. With puzzles you are on your own, of course.
The game is fluent and relaxing, and the sound of murmuring sea waves brings solid holiday atmosphere. The cursor is changing, save button, two endings.
P.S. And if you don´t get enough of "sea-wooden pier-blue sky" feeling, there are more seaside houses escapes on JIG, if you liked this one and wish to stay in summer mode longer, try lovely Cottage from 58works, or so cute and sweet Ponpon House (there are two more!) from Orange Biscuit.
In this game you visit one of Sanpoman´s lovely children´s room, and a big cheerful tulip in the corner gives you the key from the exit door only after you solve some puzzles. Don´t forget to check items in your inventory! Also, some hotspots are active later in the game, so it´s useful to revisit places if you get stucked. When the game asks you something in Japanese, pushing left button confirms the action.
The cursor is changing, save button.
Gatamari´s game starts with long, but skippable intro in Japanese, after which you find yourself in a simple room equipped with few strange devices. The only purpose of the room is obviously escaping, but the exit door is not locked, it´s tied up. And in the corner you find a pentagram, inactive yet, for conjuring cutters (useful thing it is, I can´t find mine cutter for two weeks now). So the main question is, can you find out how to use the devices and activate pentagram and conjure a cutter?
The cursor is not changing, save button.
