The Awakening of Ms Blood
Due to an earlier game, we were having some delay and luckily the friendly owner allowed us to play the game with a slight delay in the start. Being experienced he spared us the typical standard introduction and only explained us something very particular about this game, namely that there were two objectives. The first one that allows you to escape and a second optional mission, if you complete the first. The objects connected to the second mission were clearly marked, in order to avoid wasting valuable time with tasks, if you lack the time.
The ambiance is very well made, and you get straight away into the mood. The room is like most of the rooms in the North a very dense room in term of puzzles. There was a lot to do and we were only two. So, there were several moments in the game, in which we were doing things in parallel, as otherwise it’s impossible to complete.
Interestingly, we missed something, that would have allowed us to solve some of the puzzles much quicker. But in retrospective the fact that we could do everything without it, speaks a lot about the quality of the puzzles, which were logical and self-explanatory. In terms of riddles this was one of my favorite rooms in the trip and overall, it was in my top 10. I particularly appreciated the variety of tasks and riddles and there were also a few original ideas.
One original aspect of the room was also the ways hint were given. The timing was perfect, and it was done in a very subtle way, that was also an enjoyable part of the experience.We managed to complete the secondary mission and therefore finished this very recommendable room successfully.
