@ Anonymous
Thank you, very lovely! but now you are supposed to linger around in order to help less quick and bright people like me...

tam said...

ok, I managed the clock.
but still don't know how to sharpen the pencil or what to do to the blue bird...

tam said...

I mean: green, green bird :)
When someone wonders why I cannot get out of here all by myself...

Magnus Jorgensen said...

you need to find something to wind it up with

Anonymous said...

How do you get the Green bird?

tam said...

to get the bird you have to open the glass shelf.
the key is inside the box with a 4-digit combination.
The hint is inside the book.

tam said...

@ Magnus Jorgensen
Now I found the winding thing!
...still, I'm not too keen with the tool, apparently...

Anonymous said...

Where did you find the windy thing?

tam said...

@Anonymous:
I had the winding thing already... I guess it was inside the clock!
The hint for the clock, again, should be in the book.

Anonymous said...

I opened the clock and got a box with a picture code. Is that code in the book? If it is, I am blind...

Anonymous said...

Never mind... You use the funky artwork on the wall to open the box!

tam said...

yuppie!!!
I am out and proud - even if after Anonymous :)

Anonymous said...

what's the code for the clock ? i don't get it...

Anonymous said...

lol I like the little hidden Valentines message at the end :)

tam said...

@ Anonymous:
inside the book there is a sentence, but on another page you find a geometrical shape and a number.
You compare the shape in the book with the shapes on the clock hands.

thanks tam

n8davidson2112 said...

Wow, that was tough, but that was very well made.

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry I really can't understand the clock!!!! What does 25 mean????? Can someone help me please???? Thanks!!!!!

tam said...

@ Anonymous:
maybe it's coming too late, but -
You compare the shape in the book with the shapes on the clock hands.
To be more precise: the number of edges.
It's proportional.

GeoRioux said...

wow, this one is tough. I am still lost on the clock and the proportional. I have tried numerous ways with the 3 hands but I can't get it.

Any more clues?

GeoRioux said...

NM, I got the clock (luck). But I don't understand the art work on the wall and the box that I got from the clock, I hate are work I can never see the meanings behind them.

Help!

Anonymous said...

Place the hand with 3 sides @ the 3, the hand with 4 sides @ the 4, & the hand with 6 sides @ the 6....

-k said...

look at the shape of the artwork (the sides of it, anyway). that'll give you the order of shapes on the box.

Ink and Pixel Club said...

Could use a hint for how to wind the bird. Got the key, but not sure what combination.

Ink and Pixel Club said...

Never mind. Super Slimes to the rescue!

Anonymous said...

i still can't get the box you get from the clock open!! help please

Anonymous said...

Can't finish! :0( I'm left with the pic with the heart and stick people on it, there is nothing else I can use, any more pointers? I know it's going to be obvious!

-k said...

the outlines of the shapes coordinate to the edges of the artwork. Don't forget to look under the carpet in the corners of the room.

Anonymous said...

oh ok thanks

Anonymous said...

I've gotten the door open, but can't do anything with the bit of metal or the unsharpened pencil. I've checked the carpet corners, but have no idea what I'm supposed to do with them. Help!

Anonymous said...

and out

Anonymous said...

this is crazy...I finally got the box opened but now I just don't understand the fish with the wind-up key. how does the super slime help?

Rava said...

Coool! I'm out! I've been stuck a bit on the box with the images code.
Want more games like this! :D

Olavo said...

Out on my own as well.
Didn't know what to do with the pentagon "hint". Then the book icon got inactive, so I couldn't check it anymore, but appararently I wouldn't need it anymore. Any clues on this clue?

Anonymous said...

@ tam,

Sorry that I couldn't stick around. I needed to turn my computer off.

Anonymous said...

Just difficult enough... excellent game!

nemo said...

doesn't look like anyone has posted the pentagon hint correctly. 25 on a clock is the number 5 which is the same number of sides as the pentagon. So match the number of sides to the number on the clock and you have your answer.

Anonymous said...

how do you move the stool under the clock? it keeps moving away!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't understand the very last part
I have the door open, the back of the paper has a picture on it and everything else has been fully used, how o i get out

Anonymous said...

under the corners of the carpet are buttons and shapes of paying cards
the picture at the back of the paper shows in what order to press this buttons

Anonymous said...

Remember to use a US keyboard layout to solve the last puzzle, cos on my UK keyboard the hash is beneath the backspace key!!!

Anonymous said...

Did anyone else see the Happy Valentine's Day under the Bird when you get out??

Olavo said...

Just use the provided in-game keyboard. No hassle.

Anonymous said...

@ Bart,

Please make your next game an "escepe-the-room" type game. All of your game are great but I love room escape ones!

Anonymous said...

Oops.... Ment "escape-the-room". I hate when I have typos in my posts.

jdoe said...

couldn't do it without help :S

NotMarian said...

woo hoo! I got it with only one minor clue.

NotMarian said...

How funny. I didn't understand the art on the wall. I opened the box by pure luck.

Mr. Salk said...

I used the order of the slime colours to open the box.

Jude said...

Excellent game :) It was hard but I've enjoyed every second of it :)
