Has potential

As a disclaimer, I have only played the first chapter. I like the game overall, however the puzzles are somewhat hit or miss and it’s kind of weird that the guide sprinted instead of walked. The bonus suitcase puzzle was worded really weirdly and the notes on the music puzzle were wrong. When I noticed the mislabeled music notes, it ruined the immersion of the game. I feel like paying attention to those small details would increase the quality of the game.

I love it!

I had no problem playing the entire first chapter. I read a lot of people experienced problems, but fortunately I didn’t encounter any. I personally like these kind of games. You often have to solve puzzles, which a lot of people don’t seem to like, but I actually enjoyed the type of puzzles they have in this game. It makes you really think hard! The adventure is fun, I wish it was longer. But I know the first chapter is just an introduction.

The only thing I don’t like about this game is the controller. Moving your character around is a bit of a pain.

I’m still going back and forth to buy the bundle. It’s a lot of money if the rest of the chapters was as short as the first one. And I wish I could go back after finishing the chapter to take the bonus puzzles that I skipped. It doesn’t let you do that. But honestly I really want to know the rest of the story.

Hi Gia_13, thank you for playing. So glad you like the game!
Chapter 1 is only 3 days long, while chapters 2 and 3 are 11 days in total, so quite bigger. ;)

This game is a great game but there’s a few things I do not like first of all there’s the paying money issue for the first chapter was good but I when I went to sleep in my dorm it took me to the paying for the next chapter screen I do not think you should have to pay after that because the first chapter isn’t even that long and I heard another person say that to. I don’t think we should have to pay, Second of all I don’t like my character it’s a boy and people who get this game should chose their gender and lastly the controls are bad I think there should be an option zoom in and out and get to pick joystick or not. When I got this game I thought I would have a cool mystery type game but no this game let me down totally let me down. If you wanna waste your money on a game I prefer this game to be the most honest.
