"Smile" is a 2 player PC escape video game. Instead of point-n-click, you'll be using keys on the keyboard to move and interact with objects. It took sometime for me to get use that since I don't normally play video games but after a few minutes, I was moving like a stealth sniper in Counter Strike. Make sure to read the directions carefully if you are not a video player as you don't want to waste time during the game since the timer does start right away.
Brandon and I were both detectives searching for the psychopath killer, Smile. He's signature was the emoji drawings that he would leave behind on the victims. It seemed like he just committed two new crimes in town. We decided to split up and explore the two crime scenes separately. If you want a scarier start and a larger area to explore, chose player 2. If you want a creepier atmosphere and a even creepier ending, chose player 1. Either way you're not going to avoid a bit of a scream if you are a scaredy-cat like me.
The game involves collaboration with each other in order to solve the puzzles. We played over PubHub and enjoyed describing the scenes and objects to each other. If one player progresses too quickly, they'll essentially have to wait for the other player. There were also times in the game where you did not need the other player. Make sure to help each other as much as possible as that'll be your key to escape this game. We really enjoyed the graphics and the sound effects (at one point I had to take off my headphones since it was getting a little to real for me). Over all, we definitely preferred this game over their other game "Diabolic Escape". But if you didn't get enough of the horror sensation from this game, definitely continue on your journey to the dungeon...
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
