Weekday Escape N°284
Another week is over and a new Weekday Escape arrived!
This week we have another opportunity to enjoy highbman's style of creating. After them comes Migiula's simple escape from experienced devs who were known earlier as Puxupo - and then with Icyoak you set up for a journey into snowy woods. Neat Escape locks you up in a small guest apartment with hidden two escape routes.
Have a good time and enjoy!
The first game by highbman we got before Christmas and now they are back with another great escape. This time you ended up locked in not very high-tech laboratory where you are supposed to get the door code - and on your way through work some chemistry magic! There is something very satisfying about the way the devs construct puzzles - the small twist makes them refreshingly original and reminds of the quality games which were common not so long ago.
The cursor isn't changing, no save, one ending. Don't worry about Japanese texts. Just ignore them. You are a brave escaper and you can do it without them!
Migilua (earlier Puxupo) haven't changed much - the clean graphics style is easily recognisable and the small bell's sound as well. You are trapped in a room and you want to get out of there...can you?
The cursor isn't changing, autosave, one ending.
In Icyoak's game you aren't escaping - in their short point and click adventure you need to get a tree. Before you can go outside to the woods, you should get proper winter clothing. It's freezing out there. If you decide to go out without it, your strong and loyal cat Theodor later drags your frozen body inside and let it defroze by the fireplace...so you can start again, wiser for experience. Getting a tree isn't as easy as it may seem (even in warm clothes) - outside are more puzzles waiting to be solved!
The cursor isn't changing, no save button, one ending.
You woke up in a cosy guest room in Neat Escape's friend house and almost immediately find out that they trapped you. Oh well. It's obviously escape time so don't bother to try to get someone's help and help yourself instead - just start to look for clues and items and try to open everything. As usual, there are two endings which depend on using one key. Warning - the second ending is for nimble and sporty players only who aren't afraid of heights. The escape route leads through a window and remember, it's an attic you're escaping from!
