I'd start this by saying Detective Society is a new subscription puzzle box series, but I'm well behind the curve here, reviewing episode 1 when they're now shipping episode 6 (!). But since that'll be the conclusion of their first narrative arc, perhaps I can claim that's deliberate not just late. Although they're designed for subscription purchase, you can also purchase boxes individually, though since they form an ongoing narrative it’ll doubtless make most sense played in sequence.
The comp...
In their marketing, The Detective Society promises to deliver an “immersive, narrative-driven world,” and they certainly haven’t disappointed. If you enjoyed games like The Network, Hunting a Killer, and Missing, (among others), this is definitely one for you, and well worth the price.
This episode serves to set the scene and instruct players on how to navigate the mystery by presenting three short mini-mysteries to be solved. Each of those gives a numerical digit, that then unlocks a ‘final envelope’ containing the introduction to Claire Makova’s case. I say ‘unlocks’ and I actually mean it this time, the envelope is sealed with a padlock. Pretty cool!
