Was a fan, STILL a fan aka pay your game designers)

Haiku games are some of the only escape games in the App Store worth playing. Compelling stories, user friendly, fun puzzles and interaction, and aesthetically pleasing. I’ve been a long time fan. Despite that, I’ve never left a review. I’m leaving a review now because I think it’s important to advocate for a product I enjoy, as well as contextualize this new game format. I know it’s received a lot of (I believe) unfair criticism.

Normally I take issue with app models that require you to wait to play, but Haiku escape games are so high quality that I can’t really begrudge them. Most escape games in the App Store are depressingly low quality. Haiku games are the exception and take time, energy and skill to produce and we are lucky enough to play them FOR FREE. Most games like this would require payment upon purchase. Each chapter is long enough that I think that so long as the ads only play after COMPLETING the chapter I don’t think it’s unreasonable for the producers to use this model. This is a quality product that the game designers deserve to be compensated for.

A potential solution might be a pricier in-app purchase that gives unlimited keys, or however many keys are needed to complete a story without needing to purchase more. That way users who take issue with the new format can buy out a story and play freely, but game producers are still compensated fairly.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for writing in! We're glad to have you as a long time fan who understands some of the pressures we are facing. The two most common reviews we get are 1) users asking for more games as soon as possible, and 2) users asking us to make everything free. It's tough to do both! But we'll continue to work on the model and plan to release more Adventure Escape games!

By far the best adventure and /or escape games, paid or free

What can I say about the genius of these games? Beautiful graphics, super engaging puzzles, completely immersive storylines, takes you into the games and once it’s over much too soon, leaves you wishing there were more chapters. The cheapskate who had the nerve to call out a company that offers such excellent content as “money grubbers,” are you serious? Most other gaming companies charge a lot for seriously crappy content. I hope this company continues to grow and reach a wider audience, they have what it takes to become a Fortune 500. My only complaints would be wishing they had a faster turnout of games, and having an option to download the separate game instead of the bundled version- I liked it when they kept the games separate and each had a cool opening sequence. Love the WWII one, the spooky and haunted ones, the Kate Grey mysteries (especially Murder Inn), and the Covenant is my new favorite! Please keep growing and making exceptional content.

Awesome Escape games

I’m so glad I decided to play your Haiku Escape games, cause usually I like the more realistic style Escape games. But these are so rich with color, texture, story lines, dialogue, and especially game play that I have become hooked on this style of Escape games. I think the puzzles and challenges are very unique and thoughtful. I salute the person(s) that put the logic together for these games. They are geniuses. I can play these games for hours and not get bored or run out of puzzles and challenges because there is a continuous storyline, that keeps me interested and engaged. I like that there are different levels of difficulty too. But even at the “beginner’s” level the challenges are difficult enough to make you think (logically and “outside the box”). Which is what I think an “Escape” challenge should be all about. So keep them coming Haiku. You’re doing an Awesome job keeping someone as mentally picky as me challenged.
