"A Perfect Day to Save the World" is a new digital game created by Fox in a Box. It is a 2D point-and-click adventure build on the story of stopping a missile launch and saving the world from a nuclear disaster.
The game started with a cinematic intro video which bought us back to a WWII type of era. The graphics reminded us of the games we've played in the 90s which fit quite well since the game gave us that "take you back in time" type of vibe. As we explored and clicked on the items, the agent in the field would inform us of subtle hints on if we were doing the right thing or not. His "feedback" were quite witty yet comical at the same time. I took a little bit of time getting used to how to operate the items in the inventory. I was used to games that would need you to drag a key to a certain lock in order to open it but it this game you simply needed to click the key and it'll open up the next scene. Most of the puzzles were not difficult but went along with a spy theme quite well. The deciphering, planning schematics, secret compartments really made us felt like we were secret agents. The sound elements that were paired with each action also made the game felt more real.
Once you purchase the game, you can share the link with your friends and be able to play the game together over a video conferencing app (we suggest Pub Hub since it's free and has no time limits). We had a lot of fun with this game playing together on one device as one of us would be doing the "searching" and the other was compiling the notes to assist with solving the puzzles. If you can't finish the game for whatever reason, it'll automatically save and you can pick it up anytime you want afterwards. Once the game has completed, you will not be able to go back to replay it again. Please note that this game is only available to be played on a desktop/laptop. Let us know when you are able to join us on the glorious side of "the heroes that saved the day"!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
