Weekday Escape N°87
Congratulations! You survived another week. Or... maybe you didn't? In which case, still congratulations! Your dedication to escape games has caused you to rise from your tomb like an unholy abomination that must sustain itself on locked doors and puzzles, and that's still pretty rad! Regardless, celebrate another week gone by with your one and only Weekday Escape. This week! MayMay makes you serve up something sweet before you can leave. no1game would like you to take care of these repairs, please and thank you. And Zigurous knows what you like, little darlin', and that's 30 locked doors.
DIY - I like DIY, but DIY doesn't like me. And I'm not even talking about frou-frou Pintrest projects, I'm talking about basic stuff, like the time I tried to manually snake our kitchen sink instead of calling a plumber, and wound up almost throwing my back out and calling the plumber anyway, minus the cost of the tool I'd bought (and broken). So I sort of consider this game from no1game a personal challenge. You'll notice the room you're in is such a mess that the door is broken, so it's up to you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Don't look at me. My husband actually flinches if I pick up a hammer. This is all you, babe.
Mango Jam - MayMay! Just the name itself is cute, and it speaks of cute escape games, and you're not going anywhere in this one until you cook up a fresh pot of mango jam. Making jam itself isn't that hard, but most of us aren't working with equipment that's been locked with special puzzle codes. Who's got you locked in your yard and out of your house until you make jam for them anyway? Is this just a thing you can do, like, to a neighbour? Regardless of the dastardly fiend who locked you in, you've got puzzles to piece together and cooking to do if you want to get out.
Lunar Escape - 30 levels for an escape game? Yeah. YEAH. YEEEEEEEAH! GET HYPE. Or as hype as you can be where the solution to the first "puzzle" in this nicely constructed little game by Zigurous involves, y'know, pressing the open button next to the door. Admittedly, the game is going to take a while to get going, and if you crave your escape games brutally difficult, well... this one ain't for you. Consider it more the brisk treadmill trot of the escape game world that warms you up for the burpees and abductor twists of the genre. Which would be... I don't know... The Dark Room, maybe? Get swole!
