The Story: We are journalists from the Washington Post. Recently we discovered some hidden secrets from the government. We are determined to uncover this big news to the public.
"Project Blue Book" was a digital game build on google forms. The puzzles were given to us in texts, photos, audio, and videos. At times, you'll also need to use outside search engines. As we solved the puzzles given to us on each page, we were led deeper and deeper into the story line. There was a self guided hint system but it does not provide the final solution. We did run into an incident where we couldn't hear our audio clue very clearly so we couldn't confirm our answers and had to email the company for assistance. They were quite fast on Email but for international players you might have to wait a day. The company is thinking of making this process more automated in the future.
We did enjoy the theme of the game. At some points it actually felt very "educational". The hidden "secret" was very interesting to unveil. The puzzles gave us a nice challenge and we spend a good hour on them. We think Sci-Fi fans would particularly appreciate this game.
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
