We've received a letter informing us about the death of our great-uncle. We were invited to visit his house in England. No one has mentioned to us about this uncle. Who is he? With many doubts and questions, our journey began...
"Family Secret" is a point and click digital escape game. The part that intrigued us the most is that it's based on a true story. As we ventured deeper and deeper into the riddles and puzzles our great-uncle left us, more secrets unveiled. Since the servers of the game is currently located in Netherlands, we felt some delay with the loading speeding. If you are playing the game, just be a little patient. The company is already looking into a better solution.
We liked how the game doesn't solely focus on one type of puzzle. It wasn't all searching on the web or all logic. There was a good mixture of everything. The puzzles were not too difficult so new players could definitely attempt the game. It would've been great if some video or sound elements could be added to the game to increase the "mystery" vibe.
This game is currently licensed to three companies in three different countries (USA, India, and UK). Depending on where you're located, you'll purchase the game in that region. Let us know if you were able to dig out the old family secret!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
