Weekday Escape N°101
Get up, get up, you sleepy heads. It's time, it's time, to get out of bed! Not because, like, you need to be productive members of society or anything. But rather... the game is afoot! Several, in fact! Vitamin Hana plies you with toy trains to keep you captive. Detarame Factory offers rodents and sweet treats. And Primera, well, they just need you to watch their cat and fix their laptop.
Gadget - I'm not going to sugar coat it... I have relatives who would be trapped forever by an escape game that made use of a laptop, judging by some of the phone calls asking for help I've received, and that makes Primera extra fiendish. But don't fret... you don't need to be an interwebz whiz to solve this one. In the beginning, all you've got is a single screen, but poke around a little and you'll realize you need to be a little crafty and a lot observant if you want to escape.
Choo! Choo! Train! - Something about Vitamin Hana's short, sweet, and colourful little escape games has always made me think they would be great for helping to train the next generation of great escapers, and the toy train you'll be working with here about clinches it. As you poke around the little room cracking codes and solving puzzles, you may find this one is a little more challenging than some of Vitamin Hana's other games, though still pleasantly bite-sized for the busy escaper on the go.
Sweet Potato Party! - Speaking of escape games as a means to indoctrinate youngsters, take care when you click on the menu of this game by Detarame Factory, because it's actually two games, and one is vastly simpler and easier than the other! The top title leads you to a field where a... squirrel?... is being rained on by... Pocky? Hmmm. Use the arrows at the top corners of the screen to move around. If your like your escape games both really weird and really cute, this is the one for you.
