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!
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.
