Journal Style Review:

I’ve heard a lot about this game on Reddit and podcasts. It seems to have a great following. On the first day I played like 5 or 6 hours and I can already see why. The atmosphere and the spooky style to the game is great and the card game mechanics were fun as well. 

The first change up where we see a guys videos is interesting. I’m definitely intrigued.

I’ve escaped 4 or 5 times. The card game is losing steam but I had a few runs where I didn’t really progress as much as I could because of the escape room stuff. I’m now focused on that escape.  I’m looking forward to the next acts. I’m close.

Beat the game. Very much enjoyed it. The leshy act was my favourite. I still liked the next two and the change up was good, and needed, but they didn’t top the opening, and they were kind of easy by that point. The story was a lot of fun but I am a bit let down with the ending. I thought Luke’s ending was anticlimactic. I really enjoyed his videos and I thought there would be more. I didn’t find all the story Easter eggs and tid bits, but it felt like there was going to be more too it. Still a fun weird game.

Final Score B+

Amazing and unexpected in every way. I love that Mullins uses that unexpectedness to lean into the horror of surreal unknown corrupted data. Also love the high key Yugioh reference at the end just because.

The magic themed deck is pretty underexplored but I kinda liked that, showing that there's a lot more to this world than we know or could know. It almost makes the final battle feel pointless and perfunctory.
