This is the second game created by EscapeMyRoom. We've really enjoyed their first game "Locked Up". It was a very different format of digital game back in May (we haven't seen anything like it) since it was when quarantine just started and there weren't that many digital games on the market yet. We are very excited to check out "Ravenous" and what they've got in store for us this time.
The format of the game was designed quite similar to the first game. You're essentially communicating with the character in the game via text message. You can ask them to check certain locations, look through things and solve puzzles. Since the commend functions can only be triggered by whatever sentence proceeds it, you may have to retype the commend for something you need once you get back to that starting point. This was something we noticed in Google form games as well. It would be great if there was a way to create shortcuts to bypass that in future games. Sometimes your choices will trigger a video (these were our favorite moments in the game) and will give you a live view of your selection.
In this game, the character starts off at an amazing Airbnb with her boyfriend and then something terrible happens. She reaches out for your help and your goal is to help her escape out of there safely! There were definitely jumpy moments (especially if you decide to play this in the dark) and I probably let out a few little screams. Be careful of the decisions you make as it could cause the character's life! Good thing you have unlimited lives so if you die, you'll just start off at where you left off. There are three endings to this game but we only died once before we escaped so we didn't get to see the alternatives. If you feel like replaying the game and seeing all three endings, let us know what happened in the other two! Are you ready to begin? Then it's time to turn off those lights...
(If you do decide to try this game, give us a shoutout or tag us on social media so we know you heard it from "ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
