Nekogames – Escape the Room

Nekogames - Escape the RoomNekogames - Escape the RoomYoshio Ishii, the author of the Hoshi Saga series, has just released a prototype of an original Room Escape game, Nekogames – Escape the Room.

This game is all in black and white, features very basic graphics and use a text user interface instead of the traditional point’n’click interface.

Enter English commands like L or R to go left or right, use the LOOK xxx, GET xxx, MOVE xxx, OPEN xxx commands (partial list) to examine, get or move an item, or open a door. Enter ITEM to review your inventory.

I wonder why the author mixed Japanese and English in this game, because it will keeps a lot of people away from it. But again, this game is a prototype, and was just made to show ideas.

Have fun!

    That’s stupid, I will not play the game where you have to enter commands from the keyboard!

    I like the concept, but it’s unfortunate that it’s in Japanese.

    Slow Sunday, eh? I’m no further than before, and hoping someone else will show up :)

    And once again the screen went black and I can no longer enter commands.

  14. A says:

    Ok, now that I’ve had a chance to read through the walkthrough (I was at work earlier), all I can say is “WTF?” Some of that isn’t obvious at all, and I can only assume that it makes sense if you speak Japanese.
