Weekday Escape N°74
So another week has passed, another seven days have just whooshed into nonexistence, a mere memory that's now fading from thought even as we speak. Yet no need to harsh that chill. It's all good because we have another episode of Hump Day Hidden Object. Oh wait. That's not a thing apparently. I meant: Welcome back to Midweek Metroidvania. Yes! Awesome. What? No? Also not a thing? Well, shoot, someone going to help a girl out here? Because I've got a room full of folks waiting to hear what's happening and... Ah! Yes, this is just in. Apparently we've had a bit of a mix-up in the production room but all is well and good now, as they say. Yes, hello folks! Welcome back to another wonderful and not at all unplanned episode of the world's only, quite spectacular spectacle—yes, it is Weekday Escape, everyone! Can I get a round of applause? Oh, no, you're just staring at me, probably wondering what I'm getting on about. Alright then. Here it is: Three very fun escape games from the very talented game designing talents of FunkyLand and No1Game. I do hope you enjoy and please come around next week for more...
Girls Room No.08: Mascara - I know what: Let's have a sleepover this weekend at Meagan's house! Her room is so pretty and her parents are really cool. We will play a game: Hide the five tubes of mascara all around the room and whoever can break all the codes and find the hidden items will win the key. This is good stuff, FunkyLand. I'm not kidding, no sarcasm, no snark, none of that nonsense. Really truly. Do girls do this stuff? Some of them do, I'm sure. Not that I ever did but I can imagine those sleepovers I wasn't invited to and that's what I think happened. But now I have this. Whimsy, hide-and-seek with cosmetics, a bedroom worthy of any House Beautiful or Architectural Digest layout. And FunkyLand pulls no punches on the good stuff with yet another unmissable escape game. You're invited! Come join the fun.
Find the Escape-Men 149: Boy's Day - Girl's rooms. Boy's days. We're getting all gendered up in here. What does it matter, though? After all, isn't the point about playing some good escape games together and living to tell the story? Yes, exactly as I thought. So here we are. Another fun-packed installment of No1Game's find-green-figures-posed-to-run-off series. It's quite like I just described it to be. And, as simple as that sounds, it's loads of entertainment. You get to test your mental skills against a few puzzles and your observations skills against a number of hidden items including some hotspots. Plus there's a bit of offbeat humor that works well for putting your whole day into perspective. There's really not much more to be asked for right? So are you still reading this, or are you playing the game already?
My First Boy's Day - Welp. Turns out that, for No1Game, a single mention of this "Boy's Day" thing isn't enough. Thusly, I decided to look it up, see what the fuss was about. Let me save you the energy of doing your own Google search and let you know what I found: May 5th was Children's Day in Japan. This according to Wikipedia, as anyone knows, the penultimate source of true facts and helpful information. Back to the game at hand: If you have played any of the "My First" games by No1Game, then please don't get revved up for surprises on this one. Just point-and-click a smiling cursor (yes, 'tis a thing) over this game image here and you'll be well on your way for cute and lighthearted gameplay.
