The production quality is really good! I managed to finish it in a little over 2 hours as a single player. They did a great job with the clue mechanism for an online experience, many of the clues or feedback were exactly what I needed. There was one part that having at least 2 screens would have been helpful but it’s doable with one person/screen. I do wish parts of these were print and play however because I wasted so much time trying to draw things like grids that felt like a bit of a time waste. They utilized a lot of different mediums and pages which was fun, but there was just a lot of jumping and open tabs because you never knew what you would have to go back to. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.
