Monday Mind Teasers: Swan's Room

Last week had not one, but twelve puzzles for you to peruse over in the past week, and I encourage you to go back and give them each a try if you haven't yet. However, if you're all caught up and ready for a few more mind teasers, then I've got another reader suggestion in the form of another "escape the room" genre game.

Dtoider The-Excel has guided us to a flash game called Swan's Room that can be equally fun and frustrating. It begins just like Crimson Room but ends in a frantic two minute bomb diffusal puzzle that is a bit misleading. For those of you that have mastered Crimson Room, this one is a bit on the easy side up until the end -- be warned: you CAN die and be forced to start all over -- but it still offers some clever interactive objects along the way.

I like how several items had more than one use before being tossed away, with even some non-inventory objects also having a few different purposes. I get that claustrophobia is part of the point to these games, but I think it would be interesting if someone made a flash game like this that took place in a whole mansion instead of a single room, much like successful The 7th Guest game. If I can find it, I have a game that's slightly like this that I'll introduce next week.

You can play Swan's Room here, or visit Mofuya's homepage for more puzzle games. Do you have any AJAX/HTML/flash game suggestions for future Monday Mind Teasers? Email me or leave the suggestion in the comments and I'll put it to the test!

Spontaneous pole dancing in The Wolf Among Us

Former Destructoid Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester left us years ago, but even today his presence is felt on the site. This morning, he linked to what was originally thought to be a hysterical bug in The Wolf Among Us that you'v...more

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...more

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...more
