The Master Builder’s Path was a bright and joyous game packed with innovative game design. It also made use of design space that we’ve rarely seen escape rooms explore.
This was the first game from a company that opened a little before the pandemic. It’s a remarkable achievement. With that in mind, there were a handful of moments, props, and interactions that could have benefitted from refinement, especially near the end of the game.
We went to play The Master Builder’s Path because a number of folks on our Escape, Immerse, Explore: Montreal Tour found the company and insisted that we visit. They were absolutely correct, and you should heed their advice.
Enigma-tic’s newer game Missing is arguably a little stronger (if you’re ok with a spookier experience), but both of these games are well worth visiting. If you’re near Montreal, go check them out.
Who is this for?
- Story seekers
- Puzzle lovers
- Any experience level
- Phenomenal use of a broadly underused design surface
- Thoughtful interaction design
- Charming, well built game
