I was initially using the Steam version of this game, but I've now installed the MPC giveaway version to see if there was a problem with the quitting issue because too many community members were posting about it. Well, you were right. There is NO quit button. I suggest to quit the game you Alt-Tab, then close the game down from the taskbar by hovering over the games icon to make the game's thumbnail appear, then click the top right corner of the thumbnail image where you should see the X (to close the game). Sorry for the misinformation. There is a quit button in the Steam version as you can see from the first image I've posted below. I didn't initially see the point in installing the MPC version. Didn't expect it to be slightly different. I've had the game installed since it was released on Steam last year (Sept 2016).


Some community members have been having difficulty with the unusual way this game has been set up. the following information will hopefully help solve the difficulties. When you first open the game you get two splash screens with the developer and distributors symbols, then the chapter selection screen. You can play any chapter at the start. Once you select the chapter you wish to play the next screen is the New Game or Continue screen (depending on whether you've started a new chapter or continued with one previously started. This screen also contains the options as an icon located in the bottom right of the screen. Clicking on that opens up a small window with three icons (see the third image below), one for help (see the fourth image below), one for sound and one to delete saves. In the top right is a flag that enables you to select various language options (English, German, Italian, Spanish and French) and in the top left-hand corner there's a home button that takes you back to the Chapter selection screen. If you want to end the game, you have top pass through two home buttons before getting back to the chapter page where in the top right hand corner you'll find a Quit button. Regards Whiterabbit

Escape the Past
In Brief
An adventure HOG with a selection of language options (English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish - i.e. at least the Steam version I've used to check this game out. I've not downloaded the MPC version yet.)
20171110215540_1

20171111131420_1
Installation:
Escape the Past downloads to a 117 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set up file and a read me). Those with multiple hard drives are able to save games on any drive they wish. The newly installed game is 278 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if you prefer:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Escape the Past

Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop. three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the additional tasks window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)
Introduction:
Stuck on this island, you have only one thing in your mind... Escape ! It's time for you to uncover the secrets of your life. Fight what you created and accept its consequences. Are you ready to escape your past ? In this new escape game, try to solve all the enigmas through several oneiric landscapes.

The Game:
Escape games, are really simple beasts. Click things until you find them all, assemble the puzzle pieces, and then proceed to the next level. But when I started to think of it outside the box, using my experience of running an IT help desk for years, it started to become clear to me. This won’t be hard at all.........Weird, right?
I mean, what does a help desk have to do with an escape game, or any game really? Well, the answer is simpler than you would imagine. You see, you can get almost anyone to fix your computer, or you can even use your powers of Google-fu to fix it yourself. The biggest selling point of a help desk (other than not having the overhead costs of hiring your own IT department) is the experience. At least, that’s what our help desk measured its success rate on customer satisfaction. If the customer experience is rubbish, but your problem was still solved, you wouldn’t give high customer sat scores. On the contrary, if your issue wasn’t solved, but the customer service was still fantastic, your experience may be awesome.
So how does this relate after all? Well, simple. Many escape games are alike. Actually, alike is too soft a word. Most escape games are identical. Typically the graphics leave something to be desired; the puzzles are “meh” quality, and they just get boring over time. Escape the Past makes a solid attempt at addressing these problems, which to be fair isn’t the easiest thing with such a saturated and imitated genre.
20171110215744_1

20171110215748_1
For starters, the artwork is on point. Most escape games are pretty generic looking. Escape the Past is different, in that each scene, each turn of the ‘page’ makes you feel as though you’re in a piece of art. The scenes literally look like paintings, and the best part is, the clues aren’t just shoved in. They are tastefully placed, and the artwork for the items matches the background. Sure helps make it harder, and I can’t say it didn’t make me swear once or twice while I was searching for stuff.
Frankly, compared to all the other escape games I’ve played, I’d be comfortable calling this visually stunning, or at least beautiful.
Escape the Past also does well trying to tell a story. You find pieces of letters that attempt to provide context as to why you’re clicking on static images looking for pieces that move or make sense. Speaking of clicking, there is one pet peeve that I have in escape games, and that is the fact that there’s no sustainable mechanic that prevents you from clicking a million times all over the screen in an angry, frustrated, and emotionally compromised fashion because you can’t seem to find the next clue (voice of experience…. or something like that). Unfortunately, this is not addressed here either. There’s nothing stopping you from clicking like mad all over until a new clue pops up. It would be great if there was a click tracker that told you how many times you were blindly hoping for luck, or perhaps even a hard limit approach that only lets you have X amount of interactions with each panel to solve the puzzle.
20171110215937_1

20171110215947_1
Speaking of puzzles, they’re not easy, which is good.
But, they’re also not so challenging that they don’t make any sense to us non-Mensa folks. See, puzzles need to make sense, as well as tell a story. They can’t just be hard for the sake of being hard. If that were the case, people would like math class, and then who would play football? It’s hard to describe some of the puzzles I enjoyed without spoiling part of the game, so I will refrain. But, I can say that I was impressed with the thought process that went into some of these scenarios.
I suppose my biggest pet peeve in the game would be that the several chapters of the game do not continue after each other. I mean this from a strictly mechanical point. Once you complete a level, you need to back out all the way to the main menu and remember which level you just played to select the next. Sure there’s only a handful, but I can’t imagine it would have taken too much trouble to place a next button that started the following scenario at the end of a level.
The Verdict - Overall, I’d have to say I’m rather pleased with Escape the Past. If you enjoy escape-themed games, this really won’t disappoint. To tie in my help desk example at the beginning, sure other escape games will allow you to strain your brain and solve puzzles, however, the experience here is what sells it. I suppose if I could change one thing, I would add more levels, as there are only currently four chapters. It certainly left me wanting more.

Other Reviews and Videos of Escape the Past:
You can see Steam community reviews of Escape the Past HERE There are several in-game videos of game play HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and links to several other walkthrough videos HERE.
Conclusion:
My verdict. Definitely some interesting puzzles, tohugh i'd disagree on the graphics being stunning. They are okay, but i've seen much better over the past 20 or so years. Still, this is an excellent brain teaser that should bring a few hours of fun for HOG lovers. Also, it's not your usual HOG.

There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers new or fresh ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini-games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re-skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality? Giving such feedback instead of saying nothing or just saying this game is rubbish or good may bring more developers to the site, which could mean more and better games. Would 'you' give away thousands of copies of a game (or extra content for a game) away to a community that complains all the time instead of giving useful feedback? It only needs a few moments of your time.
This site could be transformed if only the community would be more forthcoming in their opinions of the games they are getting for free instead of complaining about the way this site has changed, for example, they don't like MPC games, they hate HOG's, have had enough of Match Three and Time Management games or they want to see the latest version of Call of Duty or some other big name AAA game given away or that they don't like Steam games. If something isn't for you then please move on to the next giveaway, or check out the forums HERE, HERE and HERE, where a few members of the community post details of various free games and free game sites as well as links to various indie bundle sites etc; you never know, you may find something that really interests you.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Escape the Past to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.

Hello Dharmang, thank you for asking. My wife is getting better. It takes several weeks for the blood to be absorbed from the brain, so she is still feeling the consequences, but not as bad as the first few weeks. Thankfully no permanent damage was done.

This was a very awkward game. It was very dark and hard to see clearly all objects on a screen. I never finished 3rd challenge as I goofed in putting an ingredient in the wrong order. I could not find a way to start that challenge over. As mentioned in another comment, it was not clear how to choose non-French. When I went to walkthrough it showed a beginning story, which I did not have. I also could never figure out how to shut down the game. I could get a question of "do you want to quite" but then it went back to first screen and I could not shut down game without going to Task Manager.

It is a very short game and not a high amount of challenge. As a side note, the walkthrough was only in French. I would not recommend this game to anyone.

Hello Stephen,

So glad to hear that your wife is on the road to recovery - I pray that all continues smoothly.

I was intrigued by the description of this game. I've been playing it now (still first chapter!) for a while, and had almost got to the point of deleting it. However, I thought I'd come back to the original Giveaway screen to check the comments and I'm really glad I did so - perhaps I'll persevere with it.

It is frustrating not having the cursor change to e.g. a hand when you can pick up an item. In fact, there seems to be remarkably little to help while playing, but perhaps that's all the better (I'm afraid I had to use the walkthrough a few times, but it certainly helped). The thing that almost made me delete it was the absence of a normal Menu button - I do like to change some of the settings without having to e.g. change the music volume control on my speakers rather than having either on or off.

But, having said all that, I now know how to close it without needing to use Task Manager, so shall keep going and hopefully my elderly brain cells will come back into use!!


........................................Moderator comment.......................................

Yhank you for your kind words Margaret. My wife is recovering well and has been told there is no permanent damage, which is a great relief. Of all the problems we can get anything to do with the brain really scares me more than anything else, so it was a great shock when this happened to my wife. Thank you for your feedback as well.

I was able to download this easily but had to temporarily disable Norton to install it. I was then able to open the program. However, this morning it will not open. Exactly the same thing happened last week with the Jewel Quest game. The file that Norton didn't like was Heur.AdvML.C.
From what I saw of the game yesterday, I didn't like it because you have to click on everything and you don't know if you've missed anything. It needs a sparkle or two as a guide.

Hard review to write as the pros are very good and the cons are very bad :). You know I love me some adventure/puzzle games and this seemed a very different take on the usual so I was eager to try. Thank goodness others had tried first and I was aware of the odd interface issues, the language thing, the idea of chapters instead of linear play, and the big close issue. Not really always apparent what is expected, but seeing a crystal usually means grab it, etc. Was glad for the walkthrough twice, though I usually try to avoid them, and knocked off Chapter 1 pretty quickly. If the other chapters are that short, gonna be a pretty quick game, which is a shame...Chapter 1 was fun though far from fabulous. Quitting was easy with Alt-F4, but why should one have to do that? I will definitely play through, but this is not one I would buy for more than a dollar or two. BTW, for those looking for a HOG, this isn't (at least not yet); no hidden object scenes in Chapter 1, so this is so far more of an adventure/puzzle game, which is fine.
Super glad all the healing vibes worked for your wife, WR; hugs as always.

I am usually very good at these kinds of games, but this one was different to me. A lot of it made no sense....it's a tough one. Also, there was no 'quit' button, even though my resolution is set at 1920x1080. Congrats to anyone who completed all 4 levels, ESPECIALLY if you didn't use help from the walkthrough.

I downloaded this game and it installed with all the words on the game once you started in French. You have to select the level and on the very next screen click the flag in the upper right screen and click to select the language. I picked British to get an English language because there was no USA flag.

Quite short. Some sort of end sequence when you finish would have been nice. There were a couple of times in the final chapter that were a bit frustrating when a new area was opened but I did not notice that a right arrow had appeared (once to go down and once to go forward). Some of the images for the items were also a bit difficult to make out. It`s an okay game. Not worth $9.99 though. There are games of a similar standard in the Google Play Store for $0.99 or $1.99.

So glad you're back and your wife is improving.

I tried to change resolution to see Close button, but apparently my video card is too old/cheap as my highest resolution is 1680x1050. Tried all available resolutions but none enables me to see Close button. Perhaps that's other folks' problem, too. Win7 Pro, X64..no issues with resolution before on games, so perhaps game producer could make adjustment to work with more people's computers.

Watched walkthrough for Chapter 3 but can't get the solution to opening the tubular chamber to work. Perhaps it's a resolution issue, too? As, can't click on the exact spot needed for item to work (don't want to give anything away...)?

Thanks for all you do and best wishes to your wife.

This game caught my attention because it does not play like the others in its genre.

That being said, it also frustrated me because:

a. there was no journal function. If you missed a clue that could be reset and didn't write it down, it was gone.
b. there was no clear path to follow. Several times I got stuck and had no clue about the next step to take. I resorted to walkthroughs and at least once, a tool was not the obvious choice to get the job done. In fact, I had two other tools better suited, but neither worked for the job at hand (Trying not to spoil for anyone playing).
c. there wasn't really a cohesive storyline to follow. The whole experience was rather disjointed. Overall, this wasn't a terrible thing as the tone did set it apart from others in the genre, but some tweaks are needed, IMO.

The main thing I would do is add a journal so you can retrace steps and maybe solve some of the story issues. I'm on the fence about a hint function. It would have been helpful when I was stuck, but I kind of liked not having one to depend upon.

Overall, this game is a breath of (sometimes a touch frustrating) fresh air in the genre!

Also, however, my screen resolution did not see the X (quit game) function. While I understand that different games require different resolutions, honestly many people don't use whatever the default for full use would be. Either make it multiple-resolution friendly or some sort of screen mentioning that X is the preferred resolution for ease of gameplay would be helpful.

Too bad as it this sounds like a nice game. but who wants to go thru changing into English and trying to quit the came.

Reply   |   Comment by Myrna  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Myrna, It takes only a second to change the language (click on the flag once and it changes from French to English) and maybe five seconds to Alt-Tab, right click and close the game.

I tried this game once in the past, but my old comp. bit the dust prior to my finishing it. I was intrigued by it and am glad to have the chance to try again. And I'm very happy to see your good news, Whiterabbit. Sending good thoughts on her continued strong recovery!

Like everyone else, I can not close the game. I have followed all the instructions (home button from in a chapter, quit) but then it just goes back to the chapter select. If I then select a chapter and get the continue screen, there is a home button that just takes me back to chapter select. And the only buttons I see in the upper right on any screens are the language select (why is this all by itself and not in the options menu?), and the scene change button in the chapter.



UX must have been done by a programmer :)

........................................Moderator comment.......................................


If you can't see the quit button in the top right hand corner of the chapter select page, it may be something to do with the screen resolution you have your monitor set to. I have mine set to 1920x1080 and can see the quit button.

Installed OK on Windows 10 64 bit, that's where the problems started however. No game controls, no toolbar below to do anything with, and no options. I have deleted it. I don't have the patience to deal with such poorly programmed games.

........................................Moderator comment.......................................


Hi Therese, there is an option, but it's not immediately obvious. That said, it is an unusually programed HOG. But, if you persevere, you may find a hidden gem. Once you select the chapter you wish to play the next screen contains the options as an icon located in the bottom right of the screen. Clicking on that opens up a small window with three icons, one for help, one for sound and one to delete saves. In the top right is a flag that enables you to select various lanh=guage options and in the top left-hand corner a home button that takes you back to the chapter selection screen. regards Whiterabbit

Help it is in French

........................................Moderator comment.......................................


Hi Lorna, when you first open the game after the two splash screens you should get a screen that lists the chapters. click on the first chapter. Then the next screen says either to the screen that says continua (continue) or Nouvelle Partie (new game) click on the flag in the top right-hand corner until the UK flag appears, then it'll be in English.

Welcome back Whiterabbit, I hope all is well. Thank you for today's game, which downloaded and installed with no problems. (Win 10) So far I have only played it for a few minutes, but it has caught my attention and I will play more when I get time - only problem so far - how do you close it! I used task manager in the end - which seemed a bit drastic!

Thank you Fran, appreciated. Initially, you have to click on the home button (house icon), then a message saying ''Do you really want to quit Yes or No'''. Which takes you to the 'continue' page, where another home button needs to be pressed. finally, you are redirected to the chapter page where there's a quit button in the top right-hand corner of the game window.

Watch out Monday and Tuesday. Mondays are (at least IMO0 an excellent and recently released game from an old dev company who have been creating excellent games for almost two decades. Can't tell you what they are, but well worth checking out. already played Monday's game and am really enjoying it. :)

I played the first stage, which was quite nice to do. The graphics are nice and clear.

The biggest problem is that there is no button to close the game. Escape doesn't work either.
In the end I closed the game through task manager.

Hi. I really wanted to play this game, but I have been unable to figure out how to change it to English. I did finally find that there is a flag in the right corner on one page (not sure which one) and if you click the flag it changes to other languages. Then, I couldn't figure out how to end and close the game. How do I close it? Thanks.

Wendy, I had to bring desktop back up and close the game from the toolbar. Seems to be an oversight on the devs part.

GB, thank you. Yes, I had to alt/tab out of the game and closed it at the task bar. But, of course, it's not the proper way to close it.

This seems eerily deja vu, but I came here earlier to read the comments section, and now I'm having the same problem with closing the game. There are no links or exit signs from the Menu Page. And my name is Wendy as well.
