Side Note: whilst thinking of Rez I had one of those big sparky fantastic ideas you just hope will come true. The formula: 2005 update of Rez + PSP + good headphones = me actually wanting to commute more. If someone reading has this in their power - get on it now!
PS. I don't know if it was intentional, but rumour has it that the next game in the Crimson, Viridian, Blue series is actually The Pink Room, or maybe The Pink Prison. If you have any info on this drop the gossip in the comments as well.
Update: I've actually gotten around to coming back and finshing this one now and my advice is to not bother. It's very unsatisfying as a game, and not very funny as a parody. We'll just have to wait for the Pink Prison to come out.
Organise your team of errant school kids to escape first the detention room, and then the school without waking the principal, and avoiding the slavering jaws of the caretaker's dog. A nice little point and click game for a Sunday.The whole team thing is a kind of cool feature - only certain members of the team can do certain tasks, and I'm always a sucker for pixel graphics.
Thanks to everyone who has sent me a link to this dark slice of point'n'clickery (there have actually been loads of you), perhaps you can post help for folks like me who still haven't found time to play in the comments. What can I say? I've been busy alright?
The Ray Room is confusingly Taiwanese (I think), but graphically cool, it has me stumped once again though. Here's my inventory: a power cable, chopsticks, a CD-ROM, a small packet with writing on it, a bowl, a book, a PlayStation controller, a PlayStation 2, a key and, my most favourite thing I've found in a point'n'click game ever, a little cat. I can also get some (incomprehensible) writing on the computer. But what next?
Help, blood, sweat, and tears in the comments as usual.
Update: I have now completed this one - it has one of the most anti-climatic endings I've come across. Be prepared to say "Oh, is that it?"
Anyway my ranting aside, which is probably brought on more by a lack of sleep, and excess of stress this week, more than anything else, this seems to be rather a good game, and after a short playing session it has me stumped, which is always a good sign.
I have in my possession a morse code crib sheet, an un-useful penknife, a skull, a light-bulb, a shiny thing I think is a water-bottle, and a Chinese book. I also think I need to do something with the wooden board with the switch and the twisty things in the picture, but lord knows what. Any ideas my game-addicted friends?
I was a bit dubious at first whether exmortis even was a point'n'click game, it seemed like a simple, if very spooky, flash toy with no real purpose, until I found the locked safe and figured there must be something more going on than I realised at first. Even now (I haven't completed the game), I'm not totally sure what the eventual goal is, but a little point'n'click experience has taught me that it's almost certainly to escape the house (express solution: don't enter the house at the begining and walk away while you can!).
So far I've reached the library (pictured) and figured out that I need to collect some symbols - I don't think I have them all. Post hints, and ask for help, in the comments to this post, but for now I'm off to bed (to have nightmares) and I'll be trying to complete this one in the morning. [hosted at newgrounds].
PS. Ultra-simple first hurdle hint: click 'play this game' on the newgrounds page to play this game!
Update: Due to a server outage at work I actually got this one completed in the morning, and thanks to all the comments posted now there's probably a complete walkthru if you want to trawl thru for help.
