Nigepico/Escape the Salon

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Online, Room Escape, Walkthrough

NigepicoNigepicoNigepico, also named Escape the Salon is the first Room Escape game created by the team behind IDAC (Il Destino, One-Off, The Privacy just to name a few of their hits). The game was released in summer 2005 and is only available in Japanese now available in both Japanese and English.
You find yourself trapped in a hair salon and like in most of Room Escape games, you will have to find out how to use the several items hidden everywhere in the salon.

Nigepico is a beautiful game, probably the easiest one in the series produced by IDAC.

Have fun!

Update: November 8, 07 – Nigepico 1.2, the English version is live!
