Alt+Escape: Record Tripping


Welcome to Alt+Escape, our weekly pick of browser-based games to help you start your weekend a little early. Check back each Friday for a new game!


Record Tripping

There are some browser games out there that do lots of things really well, and then there are other games that just have one single feature that’s cool – but one that makes the game itself a worthwhile experience. That’s the case with Record Tripping. At its heart, it’s a very simplistic puzzle game controlled solely with the mouse’s scroll wheel and left button, and you’ll figure out each of its five chapters very, very quickly – it’s a ten-minute game, tops.

But it’s the presentation of the game that sets it apart, specifically the part where it treats every one of your actions like a DJ scratching back and forth on a vinyl record… only in this case, said vinyl record is a recording of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something strangely hypnotic about hearing a “w-wh-wh-white rabbit” atop the laid-back beats of The Gorillaz. In any rate, this game will help make you feel relaxed as all hell – which is a perfect way to ease into the weekend.
