The puzzles in this game flow really well, and visuals are fantastic! There are no unreasonable leaps of logic if all necessary components have been found. It's reassuring to know that if I don't have a specific way to use something it's because I missed a piece, not because I need to start making wild guesses.
EDIT: I realized what I missed as soon as I posted this. It's still really intuitive!
I'm stumped at the moment and would appreciate a hint (NOT THE SOLUTION) if anyone can help. It's mostly an issue of which pieces of information go together. Right now I'm in the tower and have done most of the lower 2 sections. I have the mirror message from inside the fish tank, but am not sure what to pair it with. I need to find a key for the symbols on the panel beneath the fish tank (I get the puzzle) and what in the world to do with the pyramid. Again, please hints only!
this is the first escape room game ive ever played and i real enjoyed it! amazing game, it was really fun :)
Is there some way I can download this?
i finally finished... after almost 3 hours and 7 thousand clicks. absolutely loved this game.
ive started speedrunning it my best time is:
6 min, 56 sec. 630 clicks (previously: 7 min, 56 sec. 711 clicks) help ive memorized like all the codes.
I'm not sure if it is a bug or I can't figure out the right way to do it, but I can't move the wooden pieces in the door puzzle. I click everywhere but none of them move.
Edit: you just need to hold/press the click. Now I'm stuck at the puzzle part, because I finished the puzzle but a piece got STUCK as my cursor. I can't get rid of it :(
try clicking and dragging
Doesn't work. I tried using both sides of the mouse, ctrl, shift, everything. The only thing I can do is press both buttons at the same time, but this only allows me to move the already solved (now broken) puzzle. It really got stuck, realoding the game didn't fix it.
what do i do with the lightbulb in the bathroom
nvm i figured it out
i finally finished the game :)) 2h 18mins 55secs 6398 clicks
im not sure if i did but i belive i pushed some of the puzzle peices of the screen and cant get them back please let me know if ive missed something or its a glitch.
edit. the peice was gone but it wasnt necessary after i got the actual missing one
This is the best point and click since cube escape!!!!
I literally made an account today just so i can leave a comment and tell you how enjoyable this game is! It honestly shouldn't even be free, it's so good and the puzzles are super complex but not too too hard. I felt so accomplished finishing it!
1 hour, 23 minutes, 39 seconds
Number of Clicks: 5050
I loved this :) Definitely got stuck a few times but eventually figured it out.
One of my favorite parts was the solution to the pyramid and the colored lights.
is so good :o
the first is so hard it was 12 pm now its 2 am and im stil on the first level
i have to get up early in the morning but this game kept me u past 1 AM.... thank you
It's a good game but it's confusing at the bit to unlock the box on the table- I couldn't figure it out no matter how much I tried or looked for a answer
Played thru, this is absolutely beautiful!!! Loved everything! And the effort that's put into this is unimaginable :O! Hands down the best escape-room I've ever played in my life!
I started playing this at 11 and now it is 1am, had a blast could not stop! great game!
underrated ahh game
Great puzzle game!
2 hours, 40 min , 29 secs
number of clicks:6013
The hardest puzzle for me was to find out how i can type | on my keyboard... Had to look it up xD Its " alt + 0 1 2 4" the fuck
Does this count as the wr any%?
Pretty good room escape game. The puzzles all felt logical and I managed to get through the game without ever getting seriously stuck. The game was nice to look at, but I felt the overall art design suffered from a lack of thematic and tonal consistency, which tended to break the illusion of exploring a strange environment and remind the player they were just playing a game.
Awesome puzzle game. I'm not much of a point-and-click person, but this was a great way to spend 2 hours. 9/10
I really liked the game but it crashed on me once without a save, so I started it again and got to the second room (with fish tank) and it crashed again and again no save. Hitting resume did nothing. I'm playing it in chrome. Very nice game though.
I haven't finished playing yet but I'm loving it so far, especially the visuals - did you build the sets irl? I did want to let you know about a bug - the sliding puzzle at the end of room one is so unbearably laggy that I'm having trouble playing the game. Every time I try to move a tile it starts jumping all over the screen and doesn't stop for quite a while.
I had the exact same problem!!! What I did was exit out of the game, restart my chromebook (Or whatever you are using) and get back on. The game should save ur progress and u should be able to get right back where u were!! ;)
Hi, this game is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I love the art, and how tricky it is. But, I can't seem to be able to get the star out of the tube. I have even watched the walk through, but the caveman thing isn't working. If you know what the problem is pls let me know what I can do to fix it!!!!
Escape Room Enthusiest,
I'm stupid lol. I found the magnet. Idk what the other people did on the walk through tho, lol.
the walk-through you are watching features a bug was present on day 1 of release.
in order to get the star out of the tube, try checking monkey on the computer :)
Thx lol, this game was amazing! I finished with about 3000 clicks, and I can't wait to recommend this game to my friends! I also love the way you made the piano, since I play it. It's funny because we got taught that in the first week!
do you have any other good puzzle game slike this?
I'm glad you enjoyed!
I would recommend Clay-Scape, Soup-A-Scape, or SCOPE (which is on my alternate account STUDIO L00K)
stuck in the second room ;-; cool game though! reminds me of another escape room game on android!
okay ive gotten something finally, but the answer to the building painting in front of room 1 needs 5 and the metal thing i got only has 4. i need help as i am as rock as a dumb.
does it only have 4?
nevermind im dumb lol
now i need help because i have stuff which dont relate to puzzles i dont know the answers to or even know how to get the answers of
help im on room 2 cant figure out the building painting puzzle
look at the symbols depicted on the painting. Can you find those in the room somewhere?
So i played this game and my god was it difficult haha. Its an absolute awesome game tho! Took some serious thinking to get through it. I love these games from Colorbomb!! cant wait for more!
Here is my video if you would like to watch
It was amazing and wonderful! Thank you for making this with LOVE!
i made an account just so i could say this game was phenomenal
This was so good!! the perfect amount of challenging and fun.
definitely a new favorite! i struggled a few times, mostly due to my own forgetfulness. really enjoyed almost all of the puzzles - only issue i had was a glitch with the puzzle (had to restart) and the mathemagic puzzle (there are multiple possible answers, my math was right but it didn't accept the solution and i ended up checking a walkthrough to figure out how they had solved it). i found the heart and pyramid puzzles especially clever, as well as the clues hidden inside the fishtank. love the style as well!!
Great work, a nice game!
0 hours, 42 minutes, 20 seconds, and 2019 clicks. It was my 3rd run of the game and the first I’ve completed.
Thanks for the experience, and good luck for your future endeavors
P.S. There’s a weird glitch where the screen turns red when clicking in a corner (it happens when the puzzle is accesible).
There's a glitch during the puzzle, I clicked on pieces I had put together and they disappeared.
Very nicely done! I enjoyed my time and pushed through to the end.
I did have one bug that almost prevented progress. When I click on the gold star in the inventory, the mouse cursor disappears. Makes it a guessing game where my cursor is as I try to click on something else, anything else, to get the cursor to reappear. I found that exiting full screen and re-entering full screen brings the cursor back (or getting lucky with my cursor and clicking on another inventory item also brings the cursor back).
