Why would you ever call Wednesday hump day? I mean, I get it... you're over the hump of the work week, and now it's downhill towards Friday, but that's something to be endured, not celebrated. Call it Weekday Escape day instead! This week, Esklavos strands you in a serene but empty forest whose leaves hide some familiar puzzles, Tototo Room drops you off at a temple to pay your respects, while also locking you in, and then it's time for a trip in the Wayback Machine to a collaboration between no1game and Cogito Ergo Sum, where two of the cutest escapers around have a new friend.
Button Escape 33 - Button, button, who's got the button?! Tototo Room does... eleven of them, in fact, and as one does with buttons, they've been scattered around this temple. You'll need to find and click on all of them to open the gate, and of course, solve a bunch of puzzles and find some items in the process. I'd tease and say you haven't got a prayer, but you'll literally need one in order to get out!
The Visitors Escape 2 - When you wake up in the morning and say to yourself, "Self, I want to play an escape game that's all soothing, slightly surreal imagery and atmospheric sounds," Esklavos is who will likely spring to mind, and in this case, whisk you away to a serene but lonely forest filled with strange machinery. If you've played an Esklavos game before, some of the puzzles will likely feel familiar, so just consider them research!
Snack Escape - Sadly, it's been years since Cogito Ergo Sum released a new game, but, well, I was suddenly struck by a mighty need to revisit two of the cutest escapers around, kitty Nyan and pup Wan, and in looking for an old title we hadn't covered, I found this one from 2009... collaborated on with no1game! Wan and Nyan have a visitor, but when it comes time for tea and snacks, they discover their owner has locked the kitchen door for fun. Can you escape from snackless purgatory?
