It all started when he bought a fixer upper near the river. His wife began to have nightmares and eventually passed away...Could it have anything to do with the Alp? You'll need to hurry. It's almost nightfall again...


This is a well polished digital point-n-click game. The intro video felt like a real horror film with a professional voice actor. It bought chills down our spines even before the game started. If you wanted the creepy atmosphere throughout, I would suggest keeping the background music on.

This is a synced game so once a player unlocks or collects something, it'll reflect in the rest of the player's interface. The 3D imagery made the scenes looked so real that at times I had to turn around and check if anything behind me (but then again I'm a scaredy-cat). It was nice to be able to connect the eerie scenes to the narrative as we explored the abandoned house. I rarely see digital game designers try to incorporate a complete narrative into their game.


Our team was really happy with the puzzles in this game. They were challenging but well thought out to connect with the theme. The body parts and old kids toys were "must haves" in a horror movie. The game designers were able to utilize these props in a freaky but clever way. I'm surprised at the amount of Math we had to do in this game but good thing we had a few "human calculators" that night. One multi-step puzzle got us stuck for awhile but eventually we were able to figure it out and it definitely gave us that satisfying "aha" moment.


It's pretty difficult to implement horror elements in a digital game. E-Scape Rooms did a great job giving us a complete package with The Alp game. From sound to narrative to puzzles, we were fully immersed into the game for an hour. And what good movie doesn't have a twist in the end? Want to know what it is? I guess you'll have to play the game to find out! 😈
