Indie studio mc2games has continued to impress us with their series of escape room titles, and their latest release, Between Time, is no exception. Thanks to interesting scenarios, clever puzzles, and a good understanding of what makes escape rooms fun, mc2games titles are some of the best in the genre. To find out more about the studio and what goes into making their games, we got in touch with mc2games for some answers
Between Time is the latest escape room game by mc2games, who also developed Palindrome Syndrome and Tested on Humans. In this game, players are on a mission to steal a time machine and use it to get priceless treasures. However, there will be plenty of puzzles to solve along the way and secrets to decode while traveling to five different places in human history. Check out the video below to see the first area of the game and a glimpse of what type of puzzles to expect
Tested on Humans follows in the same escape room footsteps of its predecessor, Palindrome Syndrome. However, instead of the science fiction environments of the first game, ToH is a more grounded experience. Players take control of Alex, a woman who finds herself confined to a cell in what appears to be a medical facility. To avoid the fate of her fellow test subjects, Alex must solve several different puzzles that will ultimately lead to her freedom. The puzzles are challenging without being too obscure and the overall presentation is very good for an indie title. If you are a puzzle fan who enjoys thinking out of the box, then Tested on Humans comes highly recommended.
Gameplay: The puzzles are challenging and varied.
Graphics: The setting is more down-to-earth compared to Palindrome Syndrome, but still good.
Sound: The soundtrack is great and the voice acting is decent

This year they have followed it up with Tested on Humans, another escape room title with a dark setting.

Gameplay: The puzzles can be challenging, but are never illogical.
Graphics: Not a lot of visual options, but the graphics look decent.
Sound: Voice acting is a little stiff, but the soundtrack is good
