this was a good escape game. everything was logical no trick stuff no furiously clicking for invisable items. i give it a 8/10

I really enjoyed this one. Managed to do it on my own without any of those "darn it what the heck am I supposed to do?" sort of moments. Thanks for sharing this Bart!

Finding one of the screws was a pain, but i finally ogt it and got out.

0.3 -> 0.9 thing. I tried putting all of the combinations of eyes into the doll and push OK each time. That didn't work. Help!

Cyn said...

-k said...

If you need any hints Cyn, let me know, Happy to help!

-k said...

Ok. try making each doll the correct color, based on the slice of the ball. (Hint: red is smallest)

Anonimouse said...

-k, THE REAL -K, I need help on most of the things except digging the doll up and finding the note book and the PENCIL (??) You don't have to help me all the thing if you don't want to :)

-k said...

Have you used the pencil with the small doll? If so, try using it in the notebook.

Anonymous said...

Ok, got that too.
Jes

-k said...

Ok Jes. Now, nestle the dolls and place them in the machine to the left of the shelves with the wine

Anonimouse said...

can you help me, -k?

Anonimouse said...

this blogger thing's so bad- I only get stuff 2 minutes after they're written :(

PyroLuna said...

I need help, i'm stuck on the doll 0.3->0.9, i know it is referring to the chart but i can't figure out how to use it with the eyes. could you give me a clue or something.

Anonimouse said...

-K I've tried both those things they don't work :(

Anonimouse said...

-K? Where are you?

Walkthrough:


Get notebook from behind pillow on sofa. Look at first page to see that an area has been erased. Look at second page to see that a knife can be honed and the third page shows you can get a key from a large doll shaped machine.

Get hexagon shaped "tube" from trashcan.

Get spade from top drawer on same screen and click in left hand cabinet to see a screw.

Flip picture of birds to see another screw.

Take scale from cabinet next to birds picture. Look at it to see it needs batteries.

Use spade to dig in plant and get smallest doll (doll 1). Use hexagon shaped tube with doll 1 to find it is a pencil!

Use pencil in notebook on erased area. Note petals of flower and that some are "white".

Go to Doll with buttons on it next to bird picture (Doll 4). Push buttons that correspond to the "white" petals from the notebook. Open doll to remove another doll (doll 3).

Go to screen with sofa and look at the poster above right. Note that Doll 3 has the numbers 0.3 to 0.9 on it. According to chart, click doll 3's eyes to correspond from. Then click ok.

Open doll 3 to get scrap of paper and silver key.

Scrap of paper says 1200g. Scale says Max 1kg.

Use silver key on Large doll machine next to shelves with wine bottle and glass (same machine from notebook). Remove doll (doll 2). Open doll 2 to get batteries. Place batteries in scale and weigh each doll.

Place doll 1 inside of doll 3 and place in machine. Close door and click ok to get brass key. Retrieve doll 3 from machine and remove doll 2 from doll 3.

Use brass key on cabinet drawer with birds picture on it to get screwdriver.

Use screwdriver on back of birds picture to get keycard. Note that front of keycard has images that look like the doll eyes of varying size.

Use screwdriver in left cabinet on screw to remove doll 4 from cabinet top.


Use keycard on picture above sofa to get dull, rusty knife. Note that picture shows dolls being placed on empty surfaces.

Go to opposite wall (ignored until now) and place dolls according to keycard order.

Open new door and rotate wheels until you get 4 digit code (code can only be revealed one way - no other way will reveal 4 numbers all at once). Make note of code and retrieve dolls from shelf above.

Go to shelves with wine next to Doll Machine. Open safe by clicking on it and remove orb. Note orb has scissor image on it.

On cabinet next to safe enter 4 digit code from wheels. Remove sharpening stone. Sharpen knife and cut orb.

Remove gold key from orb and note the colors in the orb. Note that center color is smallest and sits inside of the other colors (like nested dolls).

Use gold key on safe to reveal four buttons with different colors.

Place each doll individually in safe and make it the color it should be according to the orb color order.

Nest Doll 1 in doll 2 and so on. Place nested dolls in Doll Machine. Close door and press ok.

Escape and enjoy!

For chart:

Click only the eye that needs to be different for that level. Start with position 3 and move through to position 9.

For me it was r,l,r,r,l,r,l

-k said...

Also, orb colors change no way to be able to tell you which order they will be.

-k said...

Also, I'm in California and don't tend to sleep much during non-sun hours :)

-k said...

Oops! I reread the walkthrough and after getting the brass key it should read remove doll 1 from doll 3 (not remove doll2 from doll 3). :(

Rava said...

Out! Nice one, but I found some puzzles a bit tricky, like the final one.

Anonymous said...

That was confusing and I'm glad a walkthrough was posted.

PyroLuna said...

I am still stuck, how are doll 3's eyes supposed to correspond to the chart, i have tried multiple ways but none of them work, help plz!

Rava said...

@PyroLuna: if you look at the "eyes" on the chart from 0.3 to 0.9 you'll seee that at every point only one of them (left or right) rotates.

-k said...

@ PyroLuna:

Think of both eyes as starting in the left position. The first move is to click the right eye to make it face the down position (chart shows an opening in the circle according to what direction the base of the eye triangle is facing). Hope that helps :)

PyroLuna said...

Thank you, got it.

I said...

FIRST!!! haha lol right...

NotMarian said...

Got it! With only a hint or two...

Anonimouse said...

OMG, thanks, thanks, THANKS, -K!

Angelo_1969 said...

nice one!!!!

dyork said...

Good, average escape game. Reasonable length, most puzzles well clued, nothing too hidden.

One tough puzzle: the chart. Otherwise, not too hard, and some real novelty.

Yes, around 7/10 (got to leave some room for the really good ones!).

Mb said...

not too hard not too easy, once u get it u go with it...anw nice one :D
thx Bart

Alexxxiee said...

I STILL DONT GET THE CHART!!! PLEASE HELP ME -K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 :(

Joe said...

Whew!

Got stuck at a few parts. Thanks for the tip about not hitting OK each time for the 0.3 -> 0.9

Thanks for the walkthrough! Used it toward the end.

The Gordo said...

Excellent game! I'd call this one darn near perfect.

Thanks, Bart!

Lizzie! said...

I loved that one. Logical, pretty, and just tricky enough to make me feel smart that I solved it without help!

-k said...

@ Alexxxiee:

Try clicking the dolls eyes in the order I did:

r, l, r, r, l, r, l. then click ok.

So first click the right eye, then the left and so on. Only click ok when you have finished the eyes, not in between each eye.

tam said...

I love it.
And I love -k's hints.
Thank you Bart and everybody!
