Weekday Escape N°202
This week we got three very good games, all quite long and nourishing. The first one is by the last WE newcomer Dasyutu who wants you to escape cosy place with many books. After a year pause returns AppGoya with quality game, and proves they still have it - hopefully their next game comes earlier! Finally you find yourself in Yonashi's strange room with strange devices (which you must find first) and strangely behaving animal(s)...
Have a good time and enjoy!
Nice to see Dasyutu feels like doing more games and has many ideas, let's hope it will last! Their approach to classic genre is creative and fresh, and though the game seems very simple is not so. You are locked in a library (or a bookshop) and you do look for items and use them as in any other escape; puzzles are only a bit different, not too much to overheat your brain, just enough to keep you entertained. Can you escape?
The cursor is not changing, save button, one ending. No slider puzzle!!
On starting game screen of AppGoya's (earlier Hottategoya) latest game you may switch language to English. Then the game starts - you wake up in the middle of a courtyard and the only exit door is locked - it almost seems as if you locked yourself out of your appartment by accident, but you'd hardly describe your own courtyard as mysterious or strange, so the story behind must be another one. Probably. Anyway, you need to get inside that living room which you can see through the set of window panels by solving few satisfying puzzles and more are waiting for you inside! The 'courtyard part' is shorther than 'living room part', much to do here.
The cursor is not changing, autosave, one ending.
The game is available for Android too.
New developer Dasyutu must know escape games laws very well, this one is only their third creation and it's satisfying also for much experienced players. Well known puzzles we all have solved many times have interesting twists, so the game feels fresh and new (creators have even resisted the urge to hang up a wobbling picture in their room!), and solutions are logic and intuitive. Very well done, hope to see the next room soon!

Yonashi locks you in almost empty room with various wall paints for better orientation. Notice, that for moving around are side bars with arrows, but there are few views without any arrow. The room changes during playing; after you push buttons in those black and white squares in the right sequence, something happens, and also, items may miraculously transform. Notice, that the green silhouette you find in the cupboard is of a train, not a tram, and Japan trains are very quick indeed. As usual, you are rewarded for successful escape with a delicacy - a fruit sundae this time.
