Dirty Room Escape 3
Dirty Room Escape 3 might not sound like the most glamorous setting for an escape game, but if Detarame Factory is involved, you know it's got to be cute. As you may have guessed from the title (after clicking English to change the language if you can't read Japanese), the only way out of this room is to clean it up, which is easier said than done given that it both looks like a bomb went off, and has a smattering of puzzles as well. The cursor will change when it passes over something you can interact with, so click your way to cleanliness! Don't forget the little arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen that will let you see the rest of the mess in the room. Some items will simply pop back into their proper tidy space when you click them, but others will need a little more thought... though putting a combination lock on a spray bottle seems like extreme measures to find an excuse to procrastinate cleaning up. While not aggressively challenging, Dirty Room Escape 3 offers some light-hearted puzzles that will wake your brain up gently, all rendered in Detarame Factory's signature cuddly style. And hey, you can say you already did your chores for the day!
Thanks to Lisa for sending this one in, who says, "I enjoyed this very much. In this game you are challenged to clean up your apartment before you can escape! The puzzles were just challenging enough to be fun but not too hard. Many had more than one step to complete. The puzzles also made sense, for example, you couldn't put something away until you had solved the puzzle to make a space for it. And the whole game had a good sense of humour. I definitely recommend you take a look at this game."
