It's a whole new day, and a whole new Weekday Escape, thanks to the tireless efforts of talented escape game developers who I have by no means been keeping locked up in my basement and sustained on a thin nutritious gruel as they produce such wonderful games for free. (Don't look at me like that. I said I haven't. What are you, some sort of cop?) This week! CHOKO-CHAI's trio of curious cats is about to make entire generations of nerds insane with jealousy thanks to one very special acceptance letter. Primera knows you've been eyeing their violins and that is totally not okay dude what the heck. And Amajeto takes a few influences from a popular developer to serve up an escape that calls upon the skills of a thousand grannies.
3 Cats and the School of Witchcraft - YER A KITTEN, HARRY. Three kittens, to be exact, and in this cuddly escape by CHOKO-CHAI, they've gotten a letter by owl telling them to attend the next semester of magic school. What follows is both excessively nerdy and adorable, as their first task is to figure out how to escape from their classroom when the door has vanished. Don't forget that you can use the cats to help by clicking on their icon in certain places!
Violin - The only violin I know how to play is the tiny sarcastic one between my fingertips, so I may never get out of this nefarious trap by Primera. You, though? There's still hope for you. If you can get around the fact that nearly every cabinet, drawer, and other surface in this room has some sort of coded lock on it, you may be able to puzzle yourself an escape, and then, I don't know, presumably go on the lam as some sort of mad violin thief. Do kids still go on the lam today? I'm hip!
Jigsaw Puzzle Escape 1 - There's something very TomaTea-sy about the design of this escape by Amajeto, but since when is that a bad thing? I'm inclined to think this time we're locked in my grandmother's living room, giving the abundance of random knickknacks, purple pillows, and prominent jigsaw puzzle, but I think most of us are probably going to be more fixated on the shock of finding a remote control in an escape game that already has the batteries in it.
