Your friends went on a paranormal investigation at the old Sunnywood asylum, which is said to be haunted. They were supposed to be back by now, but they haven't returned. You decided to go and check in on them and see if they are alright.

I am generally cautious of these photographic escape games because usually the high amount of details in background makes some items hard to notice and it boils down to pixel-hunting instead of smart puzzling. The medals however lured me in to play it and I am glad I did because in this game the usual flaw of similar games didn't persist, all items and puzzles were easy to find, sadly except one - the location of the plumber was the only location I didn't spot and had to use a walktrough video to find. Maybe it was just my own oversight so I won't judge the game for that. In case someone else can't find it - it's locked in a locker in the toilet area.

The only other drawback were the gay looking stock photo friends who kind of ruined the atmosphere.

The good things about this game are that it was quite long of an escape game and had interesting, rather difficult and relatively unorthodox puzzles, this game was more harder and more fun then a typical generic escape game. At the same time no puzzle was too hard, some people complain about the 5-letter puzzle and the 7-letter puzzle, but I could solve them on my own although it took a lot of thinking, so they are certainly doable.

My max score for generic point and click games with no protagonist visible, no dialogues, no story and no humor (typical escape games) is 4 stars, removing half a star for the bad friend images nets to seven stars.

Thanks, I know the characters weren't the best, It's tough finding the right things sometimes. :)

Finally! always wait for your games cuz i know im in for a good time!



When using the plunger you spelt "they" wrong



Not bad, I don't know if I would have gotten"creep" if I didn't happen to look at the comments. While I have played enough of these types of games that I might have eventually tried re-ordering the letters in the hint, the fact that I was able to collect an orb before getting the jar, made me believe it might have been a bug. Simply having some sort of indication that the letters are not in the right order would have fixed this.

Using the knife on the suitcase and "lounger" both came easy for me, so I can't complain about them My main gripe is with the navigation. Some indication of a hint or puzzle being in a location and whether or not there are more paths to take that you haven't yet would have made this a lot better.
