Weekday Escape N°113
Neither rain nor snow nor dark of night will keep Weekday Escape from your waiting hands... spiders are another matter, though. Also, I don't really like it if it gets muggy out? And sometimes you just aren't feeling getting out of your jammies, you know?... but hey, we're here today! This week! Esklavos and a canine friend with a troubling name send you sky high after a giant. MayMay wants you to go on a vacation, but you'll have to earn it first. And Afro-Ninja is going to make you feel all nostalgic (and maybe a little old) with a remake of one of their oldest games.
Prepare for the Vacation - MayMay thinks you deserve a break from it all... you spend so much time locked up behind a computer, after all, so why not fish out your sunblock and go somewhere you can kick back for a while? That is... after you prove you deserve it by escaping from yet another locked room. So you go ahead and solve the puzzles, and I'll do the packing. Four boxes of garlic knots should do it... do you want anything? You know, at this point, I have to wonder... where is MayMay getting all these cabinets covered with elaborate coded locks? Is it Ikea? I bet it's Ikea.
Stains and the Giant - Try not to think about the circumstances that would need to arise for you to be motivated to name your puppy Stains... instead, focus on how cute it is that he's coming with you in this little escape adventure by Esklavos, where once again you'll be flying from island to island in your airship, eventually heading towards the titular giant. As usual, don't forget you can combine items in your inventory if you want to try MacGuyvering your way out of a situation, though the biggest obstacle might be getting too distracted with puppy snuggles.
Escape the Car HD - Afro-Ninja's Escape the Car is almost ten years old, which puts it darn close to grandpappy status when it comes to escape games, so why not give it a bit of a facelift? Just like the original game, this pretty new HD version has no story... it's just you, trapped in a car, trying to get out as quick as possible. If you played the original, however, this is going to feel extremely familiar because it does almost everything exactly the same... but gosh it's pretty, ain't it?
