Very well themed, slightly creepy vibe. 

Good puzzles but nothing too taxing and you don't have to work things out with too much thought. 

Enjoyable but did want it to be more witchy!

First of many games that I played on a visit to Bucharest, Coven was a particularly high quality game amidst impressively strong competition. The website and intro video suggest a full-on horror style of game and my teammate was dubious about my choice of it as first game of the trip. However, horror games appear to cluster in some cities much more than others, and in Bucharest they're thin on the ground, with apparently none there using a live actor. So although The Void's game could certainly ...
It has to be one of the best rooms so far from the perspective of design. From an old wallpaper to torn doors and roots growing throughout the house, they have managed to create a perfect cinematic piece. The room is very smart thought out in terms of spacing, starting smaller and slowly evolving into something bigger and adventurous. Ingenious ways of blending in the already matching furniture into the room together with other atmospheric details that add to the game.
