Happy Wednesday, everybody! The it's all downhill from here... which, of course, is a good thing, because that means it's an easy coast into the weekend, where you can do weekend-like things! But to get you to that glorious promised land of extra sleep and pajama daywear, let's ease the way with a few escape games. This week! Vitamin Hana wants you spinning in circles, but at least you've got a hula hoop. MayMay has some garden pests that need to be taken care of, plus a few puzzles. And no1game takes an unorthodox approach to gameplay that's going to involve some clever computer tricks.
Find the Escape-Men 169: Desktop - There are two entries to this clever little computer-based escape from no1game, where your beloved desktop starts acting strangely after installing a new game. As usual, there are ten little green men for you to find, but you'll need to think out... um... inside the box to get them all by fiddling with your computer's settings and rooting through its files.
Find 5 Snails - Who doesn't love snails?... well, gardeners, I suppose. And MayMay apparently, since you have to track down a palm's worth before you'll be allowed to leave. Unlike most gardens, however, this one involves less backbreaking, sweaty work and fire ant bites than it does puzzle solving. Which begs the question... did the snails set all this up? That seems... troublingly smart for something so small and slimy. Beware the snails.
Twist and Turns - Vitamin Hana turns you right 'round baby, right 'round with an escape that will have you going in circles. Sure, it seems innocuous... who among us, after all, does not have a room dedicated to hula hoops and cryptic artwork? But these puzzles might take a bit of elbow grease to solve, while others might just need a fresh perspective.
