The door is locked, so you'll have to get out there with lots of pointing and clicking: color escape.

Nice Game thx Bart

palat said...

Feels like this is going to be a toughy. I'm going in :-)

Riiick said...

Pretty fun, and the puzzles mostly seemed logical!

Olavo said...

I'm a bit stuck, can't open the brown box. Any clues?

(I found all 6 letters, and I can even make a word of them)

Anonymous said...

I am stuck as well, maybe the word is plates?
Can't find the color combination for the brown safe!

Olavo said...

I was thinking of a different word, more in line with the theme...

I found a three color code for the brown safe, but it doesn't seem to work. And the same six colors appear on the cube of course. What to do?

palat said...

hint: have a look at the right side of the desk, next to that safe ...

Olavo said...

OK, I found that one already, but it doesn't open the safe, does it? (It just opened a drawer.)

Anonymous said...

yeah, I opend the safe
look at the cube, the colors look like numbers, and then touch the colors on the safe so often like the numbers say - can't say it better in english, hope you understand

Olavo said...

THX! Open as well. I had even counted the amount of small blocks for each color - without any result.
I did notice the green number, but didn't pay enough attention to the other colors. Bit tricky though...

Anonymous said...

put the batteries into the remote and got hints on the TV, but now?????

Olavo said...

Did you carefully check ALL hints?

Masia said...

Okay I see that green is 4 but I still can't figure out which numbers the other colours are :O

Anonymous said...

I opend that box in the wall left to the safe, it's empty, The word is pastel, I switched the light of, I saw the colors on the TV monitor, but don't know ehat to do with the information
please give me a little hint pleeease

Xcalibur said...

Look exactly the situation of the room on the TV screen. Try to reposition the things like there.

Alex said...

I am stuck with the key hint. I combined the numbers of both keys but when entering those numbers nothing happens. Any idea?

Xcalibur said...

For the "Word" hint: what colours do the walls have on which the letters are located?

Anonymous said...

ok, just saw it by myself, thank you anyway - I found that code on the TV :)

Anonymous said...

Ans out!

Kid said...

In The TV's screen, watch for the position of stuff...

Olavo said...

I meant to say: And out!

Fred said...

I'm stuck on the last(?) door. I have no idea about the colour code. OK, the "chinese" letters means OPEN; I tried the arrangement: EOPN => colours red, yellow, green, blue. But this didn't work. And I have no other hint left....

Olavo said...

Did you use the screwdriver to get your last item?

Fred said...

That means I have to find the screwdrive first ;-)

pastel said...

Gold + Silver = ? Hint, please :-)

Anonymous said...

how do you open the drawer. is it something to do with the number of leaves on the plant

Anonymous said...

@pastel - try combining something uve already nfound

Xcalibur said...

leafs: count the numbers of the different type of leafs (excact match of form)

key: Take the coloured lines and try to form (Digital) numbers.

Olavo said...

Examine the gold and silver items you have.

Anonymous 16:44: yes, count the leaves you find in the hint

Marianne O said...

SPOILER - Wall safe code


As Xcalibur said, it's based on wall colours:
P = yellow wall
A = pink
S = white (ceiling)
T = green
E = blue
L = brown

So to open the wall safe to the left of the bookshelf, set up the room as shown on the TV (laptop open, drawer open, books moved), then open the safe, then press the colours in the order above.

pastel said...

Thanks ;-)

Fred said...

I feel so stupid, but I don't find the screwdriver....

ElmAlder said...

I'm with Fred...

Anonymous said...

I'm missing that blue hexagonal(?)thing, the three others I've found - I guess then I will find the screwdriver

Marianne O said...

To get the screwdriver, you need to find all 4 shapes for the box under the TV. Which shapes are you missing?

Marianne O said...

Anonymous @ 17:13, check your pockets a few times.

Do you remember the TV?

Olavo said...

Did you check all TV channels?

Anonymous said...

probably the stupidest person here, but im stuck with key and 2 batteries. any help?

Anonymous said...

stuck with two keys and screwdriver. did someone mention a clock? where do you get it?

Anonymous said...

to anonymous 17:27, you might want to start opening the box in the left drawer below the tv ;)

Marianne O said...

The clock is in another room.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Mayor McCheese and Olavo! Clock is in a different room...

Marianne O said...

Finally OUT! Will try my hand at writing a walkthrough. Wish I'd taken notes though...

Cristina said...

Got the clock hands, no idea what time to set them at, no screwdriver, and missing the hexagon and triangle. Halp?

Anonymous said...

And out! Thanks for help

Anonymous said...

@Cristina - see above comments from Olavo and Mayor Mcheese for clock hint, see MarianneO at 17.14 for hexagon.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure I see where to use the screwdriver, it's the backside of gold and silver, right? but it doesnt work :(

Anonymous said...

@Anonymous - you have to click on each screw individually

Anonymous said...

to anonymous 17:38,
you have to turn on the lights first (by setting the clock) :)

Kaylee said...

i can't pass the last door!!! i tried everything i could possibly have done with the panel (i presumed it was R,Y,G,B and enter thrice) :(

Kaylee said...

ok figured it out! and yep, out! :D great game, thanks bart!

Cristina said...

Thanks Anon, but I'm still stuck. I'm not seeing anything different on the TV, and as for checking my pockets to find the hexagon (and I still don't have the triangle), all I have that's clickable is the eraser and the remote.

Anonymous said...

screwdriver finally works, thank you :)

Olavo said...

Cristina, try to switch channel, and take those pockets more literally...

Anonymous said...

@christina
use the eraser with the bucket and you find sth

Cristina said...

Gragh I'm so bad at these things! I thought I was doing well but now I just feel stupid. I've changed the channel a billion times and just see the same three pictures. And the eraser rubbed something out under the bin but I can't get to it. Maybe I'll go to bed.

Olavo said...

Cris, maybe you should relax a bit: dim the light and watch some tv

Anonymous said...

Where is the triangle?

Olavo said...

I didn't read the entire walkthrough but the last part doesn't seem to be entirely correct. I think it should say:
Press buttons in the correct order to spell "OPEN" and then press Enter three times.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Marianne O--I moved that sweater several times but never quickly enough to shake that puzzle piece out.

Marianne O said...

Yes, thanks Olavo for the correction.

Anonymous said...

You click on what? The screen itself? What about using a remote control?

Marianne O,
Great Walkthrough.
Can't believe it's your first attempt.
Thanks for taking the time to write it.

Btw wouldn't it be great if there was a walkthrough for every game posted here (not meaning you have to write them all Marianne).

Anonymous said...

And sorry Anonymous 23:26. Didn't realize it was tomorrow already, but then again I presume your comment was not about posting comments but adressed to Bart about posting new games.
Nevertheless, condolences.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the walkthrough Marianne! For the final door though, Olavo is correct: You have to enter the colors on the final door once, but push enter 3 times. Also, you cannot remove the screws and take the metal plate until after you have attached the clock hands and adjusted them accordingly.

NotMarian said...

Whew!! That was really hard!

Anonymous said...

This was a great game...I felt so dumb for not looking at the light bulb screen with the lights off...duh! I thought that was just a hint about turning the lights off...I should have known better! That was the only help I needed. Nice game...just the right level of difficulty for me!

My computer keeps freezing when i get to the yellow wall, i go to the other three walls but when i get to the yellow wall nothing works, i click on things and nothing happens, I try to go back to a different wall and it won't let me, its just stuck there every time i try

Anonymous said...

Same thing is happening to me, anonymous. Game freezes at yellow wall. I can't click on anything and I can't move. I have to close the game each time. And I've done everything I can on all of the other walls before get there to see if it will change the result - it doesn't.

Anonymous said...

the screwdriver isnt opening the screws on the back of the gold+silver thing! ive tried clicking on them all individually, am i missing something?

Anonymous said...

GLITCH! Every time I get to the room with the plant and TV it freezes :/

Marios said...

I need some help! I am stuck with 1 key and 2 batteries.

Donna G said...

I cannot get the remote to open to take the batteries. It stays in its small size, and just trades places with whatever else I click on at the bottom of the screen (batteries, screwdriver, etc) I've tried everything that I can think of, including using the screwdriver, clicking on the tv, etc. Help please. The walkthrough only says to click on the remote and remove the cover.

Anonymous said...

To win, you do have to click enter three times and not do the word open three times. To undo the screws you need to turn on the light first. Meow.
