Hey everybody it’s Christine the haunt girl and today I am talking about a haunting in Apex by Whole Brain Escape.

I would like to thank Whole Brain Escape for sending me a preview copy of this game they have a Kickstarter up right now which has already been fully funded so make sure you jump on board with the rest of the folks to get this game when it is out I was like oh my goodness look at all these puzzles when I opened this game and then there were more there’s like so many puzzles uh I really enjoyed the type of puzzles that are in this game uh as you can see the pieces and the the props are really well done and this is just the preview version so I imagine once it’s funded they are going to do some other things possibly with the contents of the box but from what I was told the puzzles will stay the same but I thought that the quality was really well done for a lot of the props anyway and I really liked the puzzle so I liked the layout as well and the way that they do their Solutions in hint system so if you solve your puzzle you go to this book and you make sure to look at the thing you solved and see if it is the correct code to the code on the puzzle and if it is then you know you’ve matched you know you’re correct and if not then it doesn’t give you the answer so you can go back and you can then solve the puzzle again make sure you’re correct check it that sort of thing so it works out really well also it isn’t necessarily linear so you can work on the first half of the puzzles as a group and they recommend one to four on this game like people so if you’re working by yourself great you’ll probably do it linear uh but if you’re working with a group then some of you can work on some of the puzzles and like I did and my husband worked on some of the other puzzles and then we worked together um moving forward so it’s it’s a really cool format on the game and uh the puzzles were not too difficult that you’re like pulling your hair out but definitely not simple and several of them were um a little multi-step I guess so uh I really enjoyed them there were a couple twists on some puzzles I’d seen before but they did them in a slightly different way which threw me then I was like wait a minute I don’t know the answer to this and then I had to go back and like solve more oh yeah okay now I see so um I enjoyed that as well as someone who’s played a lot of box games a lot of in-person live Escape rooms virtual games there’s you know a lot of puzzles that I’ve seen before and they specifically one that I can think of off the top of my head where I was like um sneaky sneaker so I quite liked that I thought that was really fun um the story is there’s a ghost and uh the ghost Society is coming in and you are are if you are the determinant of whether or not they succeed so if you can succeed then they see finding out what is the truth there’s a story the puzzles go along with that which is great it’s coherent it makes sense everything seems to be pretty logical um I did get stumped once with the hit system in the Box I was able to check on something but it wasn’t the hint that I specifically needed so I was a little a little stuck for a minute another thing I really liked is there are QR codes for you to hear audio Clues but if you don’t want to or can’t they also had them typed out so that was quite nice for accessibility purposes um just overall I think it’s very well done it’s fun and I hope you will go check out their Kickstarter down in the description below thanks for watching
