"Insiders" was by far one of our favorite digital escape game that we've played so far (we've done about 50 now). This game incorporated pretty much everything we've seen in terms of types of puzzles. They ranged from scouring online for clues, point and click adventures, print and cut and of course the basic logic puzzles incorporated in files. We haven't seen a company put so much effort into a game and make the cost so affordable for the players. You could tell that they are true puzzle lovers.
There were a total of three chapters and every chapter gave us close to a full 90 minute play. This was not a simple game and at times you'll get frustrated but the end result always felt bittersweet. The story line was very important for us as every chapter had a great cliffhanger that made us beg the creators to sent us the next chapter prior to when we were suppose to obtaining it.
My favorite moment was when I discovered that the components we used to solve puzzles were parts that we could use to construct a cute robot at the end. Since I didn't realize this during game play (as we were timing our selves and rushing to complete the game), I had to go back and reprint and cut out the pieces again. So my advise for you is definitely make the puzzle pieces perfect the first time. But I didn't mind it at all. I had to make my Xellda flawless!
