Don't listen to any computer animated camels. It ain't hump day... it's Weekday Escape Day! Forget your worries and your woes, your obligations and your responsibilities, for at least as long as it takes you to break out of the digital confines of three very different yet cunningly constructed escape games. This week! no1game doesn't even need a key to lock you up in this deceptively empty looking box. MayMay wants to blind you with science, and maybe some colours too. And Esklavos strands you somewhere mystical while going whoooooooommmmm in your ear. Sounds like a good Wednesday to me!
Color Changing - MayMay is known for cute and clean escape games, but will you get free from their clutches when you must master science?! This time, you find yourself trapped with some lab equipment and other odd apparatuses, and as usual, there's no changing cursor or real direction to help you out. Not that that should stop you, since experimenting is what real sciencery is all about, right? Am I right? Fellow sciencers?... No, you can't see my PhD. ... no, yours is written in crayon!
Find the Escape-Men 163: In the Elevator 3 - no1game gives their classic and well-loved series a bit of a face lift by making the visuals a little sleeker and tacking on an extra ending this time around. You're stuck in an elevator because a mysterious green person destroyed one of the doors. You'll really want to click everywhere you can, since this deceptively spartan box has items and new viewpoints hidden in every nook and cranny. Leave no smug poster unturned!
Nodes Machine Escape - When you're in the mood for something mysterious and mystical, you can always count on Esklavos, who is all about dreamy colour palettes and ambiguous acoustics. This time around, to escape from your very Dagobah-ish surroundings, you'll need to decipher cryptic panels and assemble strange machines if you want to get back to where you belong. Just pay attention to your surroundings, figure out how to use the bizarre tools you pick up, and you'll be fine.
