Versions: One and Two
The Short: Funny. You die a lot.
Recommended if you like explosions, neon colors, nihilism.
I play escape games to relax. I don’t normally care for games that are action-packed and full of imminent death scenarios. Gen-Kan, however, really delighted me. You wake up in a room surrounded by all manner of lethal devices including but not limited to: toxic waste, nuclear bombs, and trap doors. The sheer variety of ways to die, and the frequency with which you do it, becomes a hilarious refrain as you work to solve the escape strategy for this room. Cool graphics, not breathtaking. I preferred Gen-Kan 2 to Gen-Kan 1.
