Weekday Escape N°108
Up and at 'em, escaperinos! Wednesday waits for nobody, and Weekday Escape has arrived to make it a little more bearable through the judicious application of puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles. This week! A reader sends us an escape game with an old school feel and one whopper of a captor. A tree that isn't trimmed is no tree at all, so you'll need to wade through some cuteness to get it set up. And there are chores to be done before you can leave, because developers have given up all pretense of pretending that they really aren't making us do their grunt work for them!
Titan Escape - This title by Nagamochi Games was submitted by reader R, who has this to say: "I really enjoyed this game, very refreshing and "old school" escape.... reminds me of say 2007. Website says "Japanese ability is required for it," but I did not find that to be the case at all! Solvable with just good old logic and ingenuity. Challenging without being frustrating, nice graphics. Wish more current escapes were like this one.
Xmas Tree Decorations - Regardless of whether it's Christmas, any day you wake up to find more Detarame Factory under the proverbial tree is a good one... especially when the escape games are as cute as this! (Click the last icon on the calendar to start.) Your goal is to trim the tree before you can leave, and that's presuming you don't keel over from the adorableness outside the window. Truly a fiendish trap!
Home Maintenance - Alright, I know I joke a lot about escape developers tricking us into doing their work for them in the guise of gameplay, but MayMay is just flaunting it in our faces now! Before we can leave, we'll need to break out the elbow grease and do some cleaning, because this is one dirty room, and it's even been tied into some of the puzzles! I tell you what, I'm going to remember this when Spring Cleaning rolls around... you can all come clean my place for free too, and I'll hide the key under the mat or something.
