Escape Tales: The Awakening
By Board@dice & Lock Me
Escape Tales: The Awakening is an escape room style card game where you’re not limited by time in order to finish the adventure. The game focuses on the story and your exploration of it, all while engaging you with the puzzles within and making your choices deeply immersive.
Players take on the role of Sam, whose daughter has been in a coma for a couple of months and whose doctors still cannot explain how or what caused it. According to them, everything is fine with the girl; she’s healthy and shouldn’t be in this condition. Sam is desperate and looks for answers everywhere he can.
Enter Mark, a man whose son was once in a similar condition. Mark is quiet on the details, handing Sam a scary-looking book containing a ritual called “The Awakening”. Mark promises that the book contains the answer, but Sam will need to prepare himself mentally for the journey ahead.
Sam must transverse a whole different reality! Through determination and a bit of luck, he will be able to find his daughter, understand the cause of her condition, and wake her up.
The meeting with Mark was a week ago. Today, Sam stands in his basement, ready to Awaken his daughter.
