WHAT IS AN ESCAPE GAME? HOW IS IT PLAYED?
The basics of the game principle come from the adventure genre. The goal of the game is to leave the place where you are trapped. This task requires skill, patience, and logical thinking from the player. This place is usually a room that has at least one locked door and holds some items and hints.
If you tap your finger on an object, you examine it, similar to a classic point and click adventure. Watch out! It may be worthwhile taking a close look at objects and having looking from all sides ...
Sometimes multiple objects can even be combined to receive new objects or hints. Occasionally, the meaning of an item becomes apparent to you at a later time. That's why you should regularly check your inventory to make sure you are aware of the items you carry with you. If you interpret the clues correctly, you can solve the puzzles with the help of the objects and escape.

The storytelling with minimal dialogue is fantastic, you get caught up in the story easily, worrying about the same thing the person you’re playing as is only for a message to be sent through you experiencing it alongside them instead of through words. The visual and auditory designs are immersive and rather pleasant to deal with unlike some games. I highly recommend playing it. The only thing I can even find to criticize is the very end. The dialogue on screen at the most important moment has a few minor spelling errors that lessen the impact of the finale and its moral. Everything else is amazing and rare to find in such high quality on the App Store. I don’t normally write reviews but this game was actually wonderful despite the occasional unskippable ad. I feel like it’s fine though, as this game likely would have cost around $3 otherwise. Creators, you did brilliantly. Much love and support is deserved from the community around you guys on this.

Fun to play at first
But then the puzzles just started to get inconsistent and convoluted and I had to look up a walkthrough at one point. The story at the end doesn’t wrap up the game at all and it wasn’t very satisfying, to say the least. If it also weren’t for the “fast travel” that I had unlocked at one point in the game, this game would have gotten really old really fast because the perspective moving system throughout the rooms was confusing and disorienting. Your inventory shows up at the bottom of your screen, which is practically overlapping with the swipe bar to your home screen, so sometimes I would find myself exiting the game without meaning to. I honestly don’t understand the high reviews and it raises suspicion.
[SPOILER ALERT] You figure out that basically you had a traumatic experience as a child and are thus suffering some sort of PTSD and/or are mentally incapacitated over it. I believe you’re talking to a therapist at the end, but it seems to end just how it started — “in darkness”, so I guess you (the player) are just continuously trapped in your own mind forever? But what about dad’s laboratory and his secret surveillance room? The parents just left the child and literally forgot about him? Did they die?
Loose ends; concerned for trauma survivors
I work at an escape room, so I was really excited when I saw this app. However, the game is nothing like an actual escape game. There’s not much puzzle solving, it’s mostly just picking things up and putting them down somewhere else in the game. Some of the few puzzles that they do have didn’t make any sense even with hints. The end is really confusing and doesn’t seem to wrap up the story, in my opinion. (Spoiler alert) The way I interpreted the end was that the dad was abusing the mom and the kid (which is you) and then you had to hide from him and the parents disappeared and never found you. To me, I think that could be kind of PTSD-inducing for anyone who has experienced childhood trauma or domestic abuse. Overall, the graphics were cool and some of the puzzles were interesting, but it’s nothing like an actual escape game, the ending isn’t very clear, and I’m concerned that survivors of abuse and trauma would take serious issue with this game. I’d highly recommend that the developers add some sort of warning and also clarify that the game is kinda creepy (I played this in the dark without knowing that it wasn’t gonna be very lighthearted).
