Weekday Escape N°110
Whether you're rising and shining, or just shuffling around while making inarticulate grunting sounds, you know that the only way to start your Wednesday off right is with Weekday Escape... but I mean... if you want to hit a girl up with some waffles for breakfast, that's pretty cool too. This week! Amajeto celebrates the New Year with a handful of puzzles and a familiar aesthetic. Vitamin Hana locks you up but arms you with a pretty useful tool. And Esklavos strands you somewhere warm you'll need to build your way out of... if you can find everything to click on.
Jigsaw New Year - Amajeto, whose games have always stylistically been very Tomatea-sy, helps ring in 2016 with a room that has a snack-sized amount of puzzles, including one you'll need to assemble, and a chilly view that will make you appreciate (hopefully!) being somewhere warm inside. But, well, you know what they say about when the weather outside is frightful... Netflix and escape games?
Five Islands Escape - But hey, say you're sick of snow and you want something a little sunnier. Well, Esklavos has you covered... and by "has you covered", I of course mean, has you shipwrecked on a group of tiny tropical islands. You'll have to visit all of them to eventually escape, but first... you're gonna need a boat. If you get stuck, remember to try combining items in your inventory, and if all else fails... click everything!
It's Everything - A hallmark of most escape games is finding and using items in unconventional ways as tools, but Vitamin Hana is going to give you something pretty darned useful almost right away in this game... maybe to make up for that strange tendency to dump you behind towering walls like you're a fairytale princess? When you get the item in question, make sure you view it with "About Item" and click on its... attachments... when you want to cycle through its functions!
