Ooo I love this one, very Neutral!

Once you get the first puzzle, everything else goes smoothly (Hint: watch the yellow paper on the noteboard about turning something over)

Tom said...

That was fun. A little different from most. Visually pretty nice.

Helen said...

Nope, the buffering when I clicked on areas to further explore drove me mad, never had an escape room game have areas that buffered before.

The clue revealed by manipulating the flower pot was way too hard to see.

Lighty said...

Nice little game. Mostly straightforward puzzles though I didn't realise for a while that I already had everything I needed for the flower pot.

sorry I really don't get along with it :(

Cannot solve the clue in the fish tank. Can see the symbols match the wooden box but unable to open it

yay got it!
hint: leaves of flower, zeppelin and sheet of paper belong together...

Caroline, it has to do with which way the people are pointing...
I couldn't have finished this without the fortune cookie hints. They were very helpful.
Also, if you're having trouble with the disks, they don't fit together by combining the items. Just put them down right where you want them.

I like that the solution is different every time you play.

I got out earlier than I should by guessing at the 3rd symbol.

Well-designed, well-executed, and visually stunning. Gorgeous. Can't wait to see more from this designer!

Caroline Higley said...

Thanks Nat R

So far I think it looks beautiful, but I'm not making a lot of progress.

Kim said...

Oops, I left a comment on the wrong game o.O. This one reminds me of Myst, with lovely details and the movement. And I see a little "Easter Egg" on the cork board!

Rob said...

wow! Nice ending....

Nice one - although the plant hint is not really easy to see.... and the fact that several other symbols being present in the game (maze, treble clef...) make it a little bit unlogic... also having two similar items on left and right side of the cat but only one usable is a little bit strange....
Very nice graphics...

I loved it, especially the little changing note!
Thanks for sharing :)

Loved this one! There were so many details that made it fresh:
-- lock symbol when something was locked
-- little hints like when you click the window
-- new twists on familiar puzzles
-- the best ending to one of these games maybe ever
-- my favorite: the Atari Adventure Dragon!!!
Definitely hope to see more from this designer.

Definitely the most stylish escape game I've played, and I love the smooth movement around the room, but I didn't find it as challenging as Tesshi-e's, or Neutral's Elements. It could have done with more puzzles, just to make the most of the beautiful graphics. I liked the card suit puzzle, though.

Don't forget to read the "wall of text" below the game.

I thought I got out early by running through the combos for the third clue.
But after playing through again with new codes I saw the subtle plant coloring.
So I was left feeling that the game was incomplete.
Which makes sense if you read the "wall of text" below the game.

I was not expecting that ending XD . This was really well done, and the music was great!

Ruud said...

I had to play it a second time to figure out that the leaves of the plant had a drawing on them.

By the way, this was the best what is on the other side of the open door scene I have ever seen :-)
