It has been over 40 years now since events that shocked the whole Auntville. The suburban asylum got suddenly closed with no explanation. The state police ordered all personnel and patients to be immediately moved out and, on the same day, commanded every window and entrance to be walled up. The chief of staff was never found, and neither was 20 years old Emily Jones – his daughter and long-time patient, locked up for years in closed psych ward.

Asylum has won a prestigious TERPECA award for the last two years running, so came with a reputation; and it lived up to it. Making full use of its 90 min game time, it puts you through a journey that goes beyond the old asylum setting. If you play on a Monday the game includes an actor; that was the version we played, and that increased the tension somewhat, though the game works perfectly well without, and for that reason the actor's part didn't feel very integral to the game. But it's a luscious sequence of detailed sets filled with interesting, well-designed puzzles, a game I'd have liked to play on a less tight schedule so that I could spend longer afterwards savouring the experience.
