We should have protected our planet when we had the chance. Now the Gods are mad at us for the destruction we've caused to this beautiful planet. They are planning to replace us with AI replicas and have already began downloading our personalities into them. We are the only ones left with a fighting chance to save the human race... It's time to challenge the GODPOD.
This game was played over Zoom and there's a host that monitors the entire game. Once we figured out an answer, we would type it to him/her over Zoom chat. If we got the right answer, we would be allowed to head to the next chapter. You may also chat with the host to ask for hints but use them wisely as you'll only get three. We loved the comedic portions of the script and were laughing throughout the entire game! The AI characters were well translated through the twist and turns in the writing. The puzzles were not too difficult at the beginning and we went through all of the levels quite quickly. Just when we thought we were going to beat the record, a surprisingly difficult Math puzzle stumped us. Remember to use the "annotate" option on Zoom for this part as it will definitely help! We probably spent half of our game time just on this one puzzle. There were multiple steps and connections that you'll have to make in order to solve this one. Thank God that was the last puzzle and we passed the test!
Even though that last puzzle was quite difficult, our team still made it to the 4th spot on the leader board! It was definitely challenging but also very satisfying. Since the creators of "Off the Record" have a theater background, we hope to see more immersive cinematic components added to their future games as the script was so well written it really needs to be showcased!
