When I am escaping from rooms, I sometimes stop and wonder, “Who’s room is this anyway?” Who am “I” in this game and who does this room belong to? Am I an intruder? Is this my own room but I need to escape for some reason?
Published by Glitch Games. I played this on an iPad.
The Short: This game was good but felt like Part I of a bigger game.
Recommended if you like fireplaces, refurbished cabins, diagnosing other people’s problems.
Description: Cabin Escape: Alice’s Story is highly narrative with decent puzzles. The atmospheric design is very creepy though I expected a jump scare or some kind of revelatory development the entire time. None materialized. The space you explore is very cool, more fully realized than most room escapes. As a result, I felt disappointed when I won this game. I wanted to stick around longer and discover more about Alice. I would play another game by this company but I wouldn’t recommend this one. It was like a trailer somehow.
Difficulty Elements: good cascade | no Absurdity | both typical and unique solves | straightforward puzzles
