This was the first 3D point-n-click game we've ever played. The visuals felt more surreal and had a video game vibe to it. It took a bit to get use to the controls as it's not a direct straight or back like how you would use it on a controller but we were able to manage to use left and right for most of our searching. The graphics were great. It was as if we were in a museum.
There were many clever ways the game designer was able to incorporate puzzles in the posters. He was also able to utilize objects throughout the 3D space. Some reminded us of puzzles in an actual escape room. Every time we went around the room we were able to discover something new. There was a lot of memory required for this game since there was no inventory system. At times, we didn't know what we collected and what hasn't been used. It's important for you to search through everything especially when a new action triggered something. Our favorite part was the ending. It was not only a cliffhanger but it tied everything together and definitely left me with chills!
