The Sacred Temple of Fluffy Sprinkles took place in a stunning, sprawling Greek temple. As we explored the many chambers of this temple, we came across evidence of Medusa’s mythical cat companion, Fluffy Sprinkles.
Overall, The Sacred Temple of Fluffy Sprinkles felt somewhat thematically disjointed, and we left the room feeling both in awe of the set and confused by the narrative. The Fluffy Sprinkles title and cutesy cat-themed signage above doors in the temple suggested this would be a whimsical and humorous cat theme, yet the set and gameplay itself felt intense and mysterious. A number of chambers contained amusing cat-themed props, including a giant litter box, yarn balls, and a cat jungle gym, but the room was lacking in actual cats. The ending interaction focused just on Medusa and her snakes, reinforcing the feeling that this room perhaps was designed as a Medusa/Greek theme with a layer of cat tacked on later. Was this a temple dedicated to Fluffy Sprinkles or somewhere Fluffy Sprinkles actually went to play? Did other cats live here as well? Perhaps there was an intended plot at play, but it didn’t come across clearly enough through the gameplay to tie everything together for us.
This room included a number of enjoyable puzzles and interactions, all within a beautifully designed immersive environment, but it didn’t quite coalesce into the cohesive experience this unique hybrid theme has the potential to be.
