Cube Escape: Birthday

It's your 9th birthday and everybody's there: grandpa, your parents, the cat, everybody. And there's this black creature-guy standing outside as you can see him through the kitchen window. It's your birthday, and instead of having fun with other kids, you have a lot of weird things to do first. And the telephone call saying that "there will be blood" and how "it's not over yet" doesn't sound too optimistic either. The phone call and a threatening letter came either from mr Owl to warn you, or white rabbit, the killer, sent it. Finding your parents dead in the kitchen is a resolution of these events. The grandpa got bullet to the head too.

Grandpa, he wants a glass of water and a couple of ice cubes in it. He likes music too. Mother, she just needs a bubble gum (!?). Father seems as the only sensible person in the room. It's birthday of his son and he naturally asks for a cake slice. When you eventually find a knife, you come to realize that making a cake slice is quite a job. Knife just won't cut through it.

To play some music from the old gramophone you will have to find a record and a needle. Cat is hungry, and she wants a fish, so logically you set up a mouse trap(!?). Pictures on the wall obviously hide some secret messages. One of them is actually a tetris game.

So the game basically consists of whole bunch of mini puzzles with hidden items and items you need to find usage for. And the concept of memory cubes is still there. The cube holds memories of dead people, trapped inside and you usually do a series of tasks to unleash one of those souls or something like that. The place where these cubes float is called Rusty Lake and this is something that is woven into story throughout the whole series. And if you find the atmosphere too old and vintage it's because the story takes place in 1930s. Obviously that's the time when your parents got killed to have their souls and memories transferred into cubes. Back in the days you were just a little boy and now you need to deal with your parents death. By going back you might even change the course of past events.

All in all "Birthday" edition of Cube Escape series is everything expected from Rusty Lake. It's weird, senseless and depressive. To be honest, I never managed to finish not one of their games without peeking into walkthough occasionally. It's because these are more like brain and escape than really scary games.

Spoiler - Cube Escape: Birtday

spoopybirbbspoopybirbb : In Rusty Lake's creepy point-and-click adventure Cube Escape: Birthday, also free for iOS and Android, the year is 1939, and it's your ninth birthday... at least, you think it is. Everybody at your party seems to be having a good time, but an ominous letter hints that not all is well. Click around to interact with things and move around the room, and click an item in your inventory to hide it for use. Some objects can be dragged around with the mouse, but the cursor won't change to tell you what you can interact with, so be sure to check everywhere and try everything. When you're carrying a lot of items, you can click the little white arrow that appears in the bottom right corner to expand and collapse your inventory. Don't expect a whole lot of help... like most of Rusty Lake's games, Cube Escape: Birthday is more than a little surreal, and you'll have to think outside the realm of everyday logic in order to proceed. By now, if you've played the rest of Rusty Lake's Cube Escape games, you know what to expect, which is to say something at once dreamy, weird, and unsettling if not outright nightmarish at times. Playing the game does feel like being trapped in one of those strange dreams where everything is just slightly off, and things get more twisted the farther you go, though you're the only one who seems to notice anything is wrong. Cube Escape: Birthday does a great job of making you feel off the whole time you're playing, though that otherworldly logic still occasionally gets in the way of the gameplay. A few of the items have uses that aren't even hinted at so that you wind up falling back on an "everything and the kitchen sink" approach to clicking around the area with everything in your inventory, so some puzzles could definitely have used some better nudges and hints. It has a lot of clever puzzles that become frustrating by being a little too obscure or fiddly in their mechanics. It's a shame, because when Cube Escape: Birthday gets roaring along, it's creepy, startling, and imaginative in all the right ways. Expect it to add more questions than it answers, but if you like your games dark, mysterious, and more than a little odd, Cube Escape: Birthday is as unmissable as all the rest, even if you'll need to spend some time trying to figure out what it all means.
