Deadlock “The Brother’s Redemption”
Already in our first trip to Athens we found out that many companies in Greece like to tell a story with their rooms. This is probably one of the reasons the games are longer there. On top of that we experienced that they conceive their games with a follow up in mind. A little bit like when you are watching a series and you have this cliffhanger at the end of the chapter.
While this game can be played independently of their first game, I advise to play Deadlock first, as you will enjoy more the continuation of the narrative in this second part. And also, because Deadlock is a great game for all those looking for a really good horror game. I cannot reveal much about the connection between these two games to avoid spoilers of the first game and also of this one.
In any case, many of the good aspects of the first game are found again in this second game, some theatrical moments, strong start and ending, and a good level of tension throughout the game. The main difference is that in this second part they also have a very impressive set, that really exceeded my expectations.
Like in many horror rooms the riddles are not the strongest point of the game, but the overall experience more than compensates for that. In any case, the guys from Reality Ripples have successfully outdone themselves with a high-quality horror room.
