The Escape Game have been one of the more prolific creators of play at home games this year; in addition to their avatar games, they’re now up to four digital online experiences. This one is not part of their Hahn narrative, but has a similar feel: you are agency operatives investigating wrongdoing and trying to hunt down the perpetrator, who in this instance is a scientist involved in some dubious research. The setting also jumps 30 years into the past, which is what the ‘1990’ in the title ref...

The puzzles revolved around different science subjects like biology, chemistry, etc...There was no need to know any high school science from school (whew!) to solve these puzzles. Many were logic, deduction, pattern recognition, etc. We enjoyed all of the puzzles except for one which we thought could use more clarification with the clues. By now we've kind of noticed a trend to the ending of TEG games...My question is will we ever catch the bad guy? I guess we'll have to wait till the next episode to find out...

Overall Takeaway: A cute 90s throwback experience with the most amount of lovely, lovely science themed puzzles in a web based game I've seen. "Rogue Scientist 1990" features delightful challenges that are a bit too catering to novice players for my experience level, and a story that begs for much more development and expansion--exactly why I can't wait for the sequel to grace us soon. (Perhaps a holiday release as a gift option for the community?)
