Web Game of the Week: Daymare Town

Every Thursday on Geekanerd, our man Johnny clues you in on the best new web game of the week...

For all you Myst fans out there, the internet provides a vast array of point-and-click “pixel hunt” games. Daymare Town, recently created by Mateusz Skutnikf, is a great example this genre of flash games. The premise: you’re stuck in a dreary and slightly nightmarish ghost town called Daymare and you have to find a way to get out. Though the premise and the hand-drawn aesthetic (which I find beautiful) seem simple, the game itself is anything but. Finding your way out of Daymare entails solving a series of puzzles that are at first seemingly counter-intuitive and with pieces that are disconnected. Check it out!

Strategies: This is slightly considered cheating, but using the tab key in each and every screen will reveal a yellow box over all the areas that are clickable (it’s a function of Flash). The other strategy is patience!

Well, you still have to figure out what everything does and where everything goes.
