Weekday Escape

Hi everybody, this is Christmas Special Weekday Escape!

Prepare for a big fat Weekday Escape! Three new big games from top developers arrived and two excellent retro games. Plus bonuses. The first is Esklavos at their best - atmospheric and calming too. Then the latest Rinnogogo wants you to decorate a tall spruce - you need to find some helpers for that task. In their newest remake, Ichima Coffeedo imprisons you in a mountain cabin and promises nice ride in a cable car if you find a ticket. Gotmail tells us a Christmas escape story with criminal overtones, and with Nicolet, in their rodent's universe, you may take part in Christmas Eve events and help to save Christmas. And one good news - Neutral's new game is planned for the beginning of 2021! This is the last Weekday Escape in this year - see you in January 2021. Wishing you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Have a good time and enjoy!

Magic New Year Escape 2

Magic New Year Escape 2

This is a farewell with magical, poetical and very very atmospheric Esklavos. The last trip to their dreamland which you can escape through the magic portal only and where sound always the same tune and chirping birds. Where you often meet various magical creatures - like elves, talking trees and evil witches - and this time, apart from standard though a bit overgrown dwarfs a zombie one! He's quite friendly but definitely doesn't seem so. You need to fulfill ten wishes in order to open the portal - and yes, zombie dwarfs have wishes too. The cursor is changing, no save, one ending. P.S. Here is one retro from Amajeto: Gold and Brown.


Holy Night 3

Holy Night 3

Rinnogogo's solitary house where you are locked in is far in the mountains...and its tennant worries whether Santa will find it. Nicely decorated tree would certainly draw his attention and there's a beautiful full-grown one in front of the house, not decorated yet, but which door leads out? Where did you put the key? Or, if it's the other door, where did you leave the memo for the code? So many questions...well you should look around the room and be observant since some hotspots are sneakily hidden at the edges of the game screen. Also, there are nineteen fairies hiding in the house and you are supposed to discover them...can you? The cursor isn't changing, autosave, one ending. The game is available for Android too. P.S. About catching fairies...here is Hitonchi by Detarou where you need to find ten little blue...hmmm not exactly fairies...sort of...to a certain extent, that's it. If you like it you may want to visit their other games fot the last time, probably. You know why.


Room 30 Heart & Xmas

Room 30 Heart & Xmas</p>

You find yourself trapped in Ichima Coffeedo's cosy mountain cabin and your goal is to find a ticket for a gondola lift. Ticket or not, you can't get to the lift anyway and don't even know which way leads to the station. It's time for thoroughtful exploration and I mean it as this time (untypically for Ichima) there are items and spots which can be overlooked. Though it doesn't seem so the game is quite long - and very enjoyable too! The cursor isn't changing, autosave, one ending. The game is available for Android too.


Employer

Employer

Very nice Gotmail's retro game has a background story and it's a good one! A girl working as a maid really looks forward to today's end of her contract - it's the day before Christmas and the job isn't the best one indeed - when her landlord drastically changes her plans. Without asking decides not to observe the contract and extend it. The situation seems hopeless for the maid until a collegue whispers to her to go to the cellar and find out what had happened there - it may help her he says...what mystery does the cellar hide? Will you discover it? The cursor isn't changing, save button, one ending.


Christmas by Nicholet

Christmas by Nicholet

It's Christmas Eve and Nicolet's mice went obediently to their bed. Christmas stockings are ready to be stuffed, mice peacefully sleeping, Father Christmas has arrived already, however, without presents. Poor mice. You need to help him to find the presents since they're hidden somewhere around this house, and of course, you need to figure out many codes to open all drawers and get into other rooms - it may take some time but making five little mice happy worth the effort! The cursor isn't changing, autosave, one ending. Bonus games are two Minoto's lovely and nonsensical games, Present of Santa and Present of Santa 2. Previous specials: Weekday Escape N°241, Weekday Escape N°205, Weekday Escape N°165 and Weekday Escape N°105.

Yay! I always look forward to Christmas escape games from about the start of September.

I know this place isn't what it once was, but massive thanks to those of you who've kept it going. JayIsGames remains one of may favourite corners of the web, and I can't wait to crack into these ones.

Happy holidays all!

There's some hope for playing old Flash content after 2020: the Internet Archive has been collecting it (see http://blog.archive.org/2020/11/19/flash-animations-live-forever-at-the-internet-archive/ ), and work on Ruffle is proceeding. We'll see how it goes...

Thank you for pointing it out: it's fixed.
I wish to everyone too a Merry Christmas.

Ruffle is pretty cool: if you don't feel like downloading an extension or executable to test it out, you can simply load the swf file into their demo page to play it in your browser.

(There's also the older software swf2js, but their demo page didn't work for me.)

Some of the escape games I tested last month didn't work well on Ruffle: text clues and labels became unreadable, which is very bad for an escape game. Hopefully they can work out the rendering compatibility.

Merry Christmas to everybody!

Thank you for keeping this alive. I have been coming here for many years. This site has helped me keep my sanity! My heart aches when I see so many game sites closed or games that won't play anymore because of some windows or browser update.

I don't know what the future holds. No one does. But you give me something to look forward to every Wednesday. What ever holiday you celebrate, have a happy one.

Thank you for this place of refuge.

Thank you all for what you do. I also absolutely love coming here toes what's new. I can't get most games to open anymore and I'm not techy enough to know how to make them work on my MacBook.
But I Love that you are putting so much effort into this site. Thanks you and Merry Christmas

Gotmail's games always have rage-inducing pixel hunting and questionable logic, but Employer is even worse, maybe because it's an old game.

In one place, you either have to understand a Japanese pun, or make a gigantic leap in logic.

Thank you chrpa & kktkkr, and everyone else who has worked hard to keep JayisGames alive and running. Over time, so many game sites have been shut down which truly is sad when all we want to do is have a place of respite, where we can spend a little time away from the madness of our world. Regain our sanity. Relax and have fun. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year filled to the brim with engaging fun & games!

Happy New Year to all. We wish you all the best in 2021!
