Brown Dyed Hotel is one of those no-instructions-given-figure-it-out-for-yourself games.

Got to the one with inflating circles and the line graph. Felt dumb. Quit.

Same here.

The first few puzzles are entertaining, but it quickly devolves into "find this hidden thing" type challenges, or, worse yet, "click and drag this non-obvious object" levels.

As am I; I was told I was ahead of my time, though, which was nice of the robot to say. I tried altering the web address to a bunch of things that preceded or replaced ether in surgery, but no luck.

I think it's making fun of me.

yeah i got told I'm ahead of my time as well. I even googled ether and ^o^ is the symbol for Diethyl ether.

I think this is ether.

I beat the first level but I have no idea what I did. Then I got stuck on ether and was told I was ahead of my time.

Ugh, ether just has a stupid hidden textbox. Lame!

All right, now I'm at the piano. I have the notes of the keys mapped out, but no idea what to do with them. Does the robot want a song?

All right, past the piano by lots of clicking, but god help me if I know what I did.

Good grief. I read that as Brown Eyed Hotel. I've been so, so bad.

How do you get past univision? Is there more to it than 'BLUR'?
posted by schyler523 at 8:24 AM on January 4, 2009


When you get "BLUR", it unblurs a thing that you can use to get to the next level.

Agh! I was stuck on univision because I didn't see the 4th white dot. Arrrrrgh!

(Thank you.)

I googled "^o^" and got Oprah's webpage. Oprah might actually work.

No song. Keep looking around, "corridor" is kind of fun.
posted by goodnewsfortheinsane at 10:19 AM on January 4, 2009


Oh, you mean the one after that. Sorry, I said nothing.
posted by goodnewsfortheinsane at 10:20 AM on January 4, 2009


Oh it's kinda lame. No music skills or key mapping necessary, just some tinkering.

I wonder when we get to the part where we have to burn the rope.

I was liking it okay until I got to 6 and it suddenly became extremely loud.

Once you've gotta figure out puzzles by typing in URLs, I feel like they've ruined the fun of playing it. Keep the puzzles in the game (like warbears) and I'll keep playing.
