Ugh, weekdays. Ugh, responsibilities. Ugh, not being able to play three free online escape games in a row handcrafted by three different developers. ... wait, that last one doesn't apply to us at all! Muahaha, take that, productivity, procrastination wins again! This week! Nagamochi Games gets very tricky with an escape game where you can't take anything at face value. Vitamin Hana is so over doors and wants you to get a workout to break free. And Choko-Chai gives the kitties a rest for a wintry little treat.
Jump Over - To escape from Vitamin Hana this time, as the title implies, where you're going, you won't need doors. ... or, well, okay, you need doors, but the way to freedom is actually up and over the big wall in the backyard. This one is a little straightforward thanks to some spartan decor, but to crack the codes on its locked cabinets and ultimately scale the wall to the untold riches and glory that doubtless rest on the other side, you'll still need to give your brain a shake to wake it up.
New Year 2016 - Choko-Chai's kitties are absent for this Japanese-only wintry escape, where you find yourself trapped in a snowy but lovely little outdoor area with snowmen and a shrine. Even if you can't read the language, you should still be able to complete this short and simple game with little difficulty, as long as you remember to examine everything you have up close with the magnifying glass and poke in every nook and cranny.
Wicked Escape Zero - Nagamochi Games gets sneaky this time with tricky puzzles that play with your brain, though once again the text is is Japanese only. English only readers can still complete it just fine... provided they don't take every puzzle they see at face value! If you get stuck, try clicking around a little, because this is one game that loves being outright deceptive at times. You can handle it, right?
