It's Wednesday and you know what that means... it's the middle of the week! Only a few more days 'til the glorious freedom of the weekend. You know, unless you're an adult and no longer find your responsibilities bound solely to Monday through Friday, in which case, the cycle never ends! But no matter what you have to do, or how long you have to do it, Weekday Escape can always make it just a little bit better. This week! Vitamin Hana doesn't want to keep you in so much as out. Nagamochi Games delivers something a little fishy. And Twinkle is both wonderfully weird and sugary sweet.
Going Home - At the end of a long day, all you really want is to get home to where you can be surrounded by all your favourite things, and also maybe not have to wear pants. Vitamin Hana isn't going to make that easy for you, however, though if you're the sort of person who requires an elaborate puzzle lock assembly to get in your front gate, the fault is probably yours. Scour the surrounding area for the items and clues you need to get inside, and then maybe consider investing in something a little less fancy so you don't have to go through this every time you forget to pick up coffee creamer.
Choco Escape 4 - If your criteria for an escape game are "weird" and "cute", Twinkle is always a good bet, not the least of which because they consider a room with an unlimited chocolate fountain, not to mention what appears to be an entirely chocolate-based structure, something you'd want to escape from. There's a little bit of pixel hunting in this one, and the game can be fiddly about where you click and whether it accepts the correct input, but I suppose if you get really stuck, you can always call on me to help you eat your way out. I mean... it's a horrible prospect, but I'm willing to gorge myself on pounds of chocolate... for our friendship.
Fish De Escape - I'm not entirely sure where you are or what you're doing in Nagamochi Games' venture, but it involves a whole lot of pleasantly strange puzzles, and a partial English translation. You're trapped in some sort of outdoor maze, surrounded by treasure chests with electronic locks, carnival games, statuary, and an ominous pond, which goes to prove that assembling escape games by tossing darts at a board of random elements might not be such a bad idea. There's a definite element of whimsy to the design, which I like, and there's a gratuitous amount of sushi, which I also like, so let's call this one a win for everyone.
