Oh there you are, my minions! I mean, my adoring fans. I mean, people without whom I'd not have had this gig these past four years. You are appreciated. All of you. But I hold a little extra fondness for you right there—look how cute you are, taking the time to read this little intro rather than immediately clicking on those enticing game images below. I wish I had some enthralling and witty story to share but I'm too wordless with gratitude and awe at the moment. So I'm just going to duck into the other room for a few, I, uh, have something in my...allergies. While I'm gone, here's some pretty little escape games from No1Game, FunkyLand and Primera to distract from the awkward silence in the room. Play them in any order that you wish, or tackle all three at one time. This is all for you, my friend. Have fun...
Find the Escape-Men Part 152: Pet Shop - No1Game once again invites you to play a game of hide-and-seek with little green men posed to run. The lure? Adorable animals. You know, because life in the big city gets lonely and a ban on pets in your apartment can't stop you from looking. Thusly, you're trapped inside a pet shop and need the help of ten escape-men to, well, escape. This is where all the fun stuff happens, as you search about for hiding spots, solving puzzles and all the usual shenanigans. Escape-men fans will find everything they expect from No1Game, format- and humor-wise, plus it's on the easier side meaning not too many pixel hunts or obscure hints to keep you locked up very long.
Fruit Kitchens No.21: Chocolate Vine Violet - I do not know what a chocolate vine is or why it's violet colored, but you had me at "chocolate", FunkyLand. So, sure, I'd love to get locked into your whimsical purple kitchen and have to find seven of these chocolate pods before I can get out. The game never gets old. Perhaps the hardest part about it is not getting too caught up daydreaming about what my dream house would look like if I could have FunkyLand design it... As always, personality and charm is infused into every corner of the room. Search it well, enjoy the creative clue presentation, and just live in the moment.
Azil's Garden - This more-than-mini escape grows out of Azil of Primera's imagination and is likely to spark yours, too, with a sprinkle of task-based puzzles, a smattering of codes to solve and its bountiful cuteness. While there is one clue that might stump you at first, as long as you take time to examine (and re-examine) all items in your midst and inventory, you're unlikely to be confounded by much abstruseness, and the ways of finding solutions provides enough smiles and mental stimulation for a satisfying break. In other words, if you're not in the mood for more than 5-10 minutes of light amusement, meander Azil's peaceful patio and you'll leave refreshed.
