You Wake Up Alone In A Closed Restaurant. Time To Escape.

By Eugene . September 14, 2013 . 2:00pm


Puzzle gamers, get ready for the latest installment of the escape room genre with Simple DL Series Vol. 16: Escape Trick – The Happy Monkey Family Restaurant. In the 16th installment of the Simple DL Escape Trick series, players awaken after having fallen asleep on a night out with friends to family restaurant The Happy Monkey to discover the place locked up tight. Time to get out and get home.


A new THINK button will now help give hints to players by having the protagonist offer inner monologues on the situation, alongside the ability to use the touch screen to scrawl personal memo notes and hints.


Meanwhile, an action button will also light up on interactive objects for those who hate button mashing pixels while hunting for clues. Finally, a camera system lets players take quick snapshots of places or hints for later referral, while the Nintendo 3DS’s microphone function might also come in handy with some puzzles.


Two modes of difficulty will also be offered for beginners and veterans alike. @Simple DL Escape Trick: The Happy Monkey Family Restaurant is available on the Japanese Nintendo e-Shop for 3DS.

      Reading the title, first thing i thought was “Well that is an odd setting for a 999/VLR game…”

    If it’s a closed restaurant at night, why are the lights on and why is it still daylight outside? Those monkeys would be a lot more creepy in the darkness.

      “In the 16th installment of the Simple DL Escape Trick series, players awaken after having fallen asleep on a night out with friends to family restaurant The Happy Monkey to discover the place locked up tight.”

      The article never says you don’t wake up in the morning.

      • Suicunesol

        No, it doesn’t. But it wouldn’t be as interesting to wake up in the morning and look for a way out that way. Then you can just wait for the manager.

        Also why is the coffee in the above picture still hot if it’s the morning before the restaurant opened?

        Maybe that’s part of the mystery… :P

        The protagonist of this game needs to get new friends. It seems he’s always going out with them, then passing out and waking up alone locked in a building somewhere. If I was him, I’d think something was definitely up.

  • Warboss Aohd

    to escape da restaurant……..find da nearest chair, an’ throw it at da window.

    • JMaster3000

      SURPRISE BICH! The windows are made out of Rubber.

      • InfectedAI

        But then how can I see outside and my translucent reflection!? THEY’VE DEVELOPED A NEW FORM OF RUBBER.

        • Byas

          Nanomachines, son.

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            I think I know the twist. The kidnappers are the LaLiLuLeLo.

          • InfectedAI

            Obvious MGS spinoff. It’s like Kojima isn’t even trying. Has he ever heard of subtlety?

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            No, because everything needs to be political and slightly philosophical. BECAUSE ART.

  • Covnam

    Is this modeled after the Jonathon’s resaurants in Japan or is that just what most family restaurants look like there?

  • Shady Shariest

    What if the restaurant has good food and fair discounts for those who sign up for a regular’s club?

  • Learii

    i tho this was the new zero escape lol

  • Aemette

    I don’t trust that monkey no matter how innocent he looks. If a puzzle in that game requires you to turn off the lights and after you turn them back on you find that he has moved, I will simply cry myself to sleep that night.

  • joemari5

    That monkey doesn’t look so happy to me.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Behind the saloon doors…is a great big monkey dong.

  • s07195

    If I were in this kind of situation, finding hints left and right…
    I’d probably break a window with something… >.>
    This is hardly a situation like Zero Escape.

  • ZekeFreek

    Seriously the biggest mystery in the game is wondering why you can’t just break the fucking windows. Geez.
