This digital game was the closest we felt to an onsite escape room so far. The graphics were beautiful with details of tree twigs to cracks on walls. The storytelling and sound system felt like we were watching a mystery movie the entire time. Our most enjoyable moments were the creepy walks in the forest and the creaking sounds of the old stairs in the manor. Puzzles were not as difficult but enjoyable in the sense that they mimic what we would actually do in a physical escape room. The hint system was not too revealing although if you were to get stuck, you can easily follow the clue file they sent along with the game. We love that the game had a strong ending as we haven't seen too many digital games that were able to incorporate that. We played on the same computer so we are not sure how multiplayer would work but we love to hear your feedback on the game as well if you've played it. Well Crime Runners, you've done it. We are fully invested now and can't wait for Part 2!
