Das Geheimnis der Puppen
Ah, the family house, inherited from her great grandfather. It’s a nice neighbourhood, quiet, what could go wrong if she leaves her girls alone for an hour to do some errands? Well, they’re gone now, without a trace. We need to find out what happened.
The game starts in the children’s playroom. If we assume the maid was there moments before, then there’s no trouble imagining children playing in this room. It’s bright, colourful, and has a variety of toys. It felt cozy, and peaceful enough to forget three children were missing.
I liked the level of integration. The toys were the puzzles, and many of the activities were something children would do. Without spoiling anything, this integration continues even when the atmosphere changes.
We got stuck on something, but I’m not entirely clear what anymore. We grabbed a tip or two, but felt as though the room was fair. It’s easy to oversee something with only two players.
The Puppet Master is a good room that is worth playing. The theme, decorations, and atmosphere all fit well together. The story makes sense, and is interesting — something that I find rare in escape rooms.
