I woke up in a room... It is not locked and I remember everything. I'm a werewolf. Tonight I will turn and people will die, unless I find a way to prevent myself from escaping this place.
There IS a recipe for the potion in game :-)
To start off, I absolutely love the idea of taking a typical escape the room game and turning it completely backwards - even the title spells this out well enough to grab attention. I also love how pretty much everything the player does in this game is perfectly sensible; no secret compartment in the wall concealing an ankh that you wrap a dollar bill around and light on fire to reveal a secret QR code tattooed on your arm. The ending, telling how the werewolf got through each of your defenses and how effective they were, was a nice touch.
Another thing I appreciated was the use of red-herrings, like the potion with the mushroom versus the root (Could have thrown in another - when the recipe once said "hot dust" I was thinking ashes and checked the fireplace, and when I found the spices, they were obviously what the recipe called for). I noticed another - the opportunity to douse the meat in the potion rather than just drinking it and distracting the wolf with the meat. Too bad I discovered the options in that order, because suspending the meat from the hook didn't occur to me before I tried setting it down on a table, on the floor, then thought to cover it with the potion.
I feel I should mention that the floor is only accessible while facing the fireplace, which bugs me; looking around should not be counter-intuitive in one of these games. Could have also had some more options, like trying to use the table and chairs as a barricade or simply nailing the window shut, either of which might have created a weaker defense; more red herrings.
In conclusion: Excellent premise, logical gameplay, loved the multiple endings - could have been more ways to screw up and get a bad one, but I enjoyed this game more than most others of its kind.
booyah! Got a calm night on my first try, but then tried to get all the others, good game though.
very deep and cryptic game. it's almost impossible if you don't know what you are doing. also it's a very nice twist on the escape games, I was very happy with this one
It's a very nice game and a good idea.
There were two major drawbacks for me to this otherwise great game. First there was some missing feedback for some actions like "Why can't I chop the barrels (for firewood)". The second is about the pixel hunt at some places (window, cupboard, diary - yes, the diary...).
Otherwise - as I said - great game.
Opposite to escape games is unique idea. Also werewolfs are one of my favourite fanatsy creatures. Trully great game.
