Love the teamwork element of this game.
We had quite a lot of fun with this one. Great building of fun in-game tension, particularly towards the end. And remarkably responsive; there was virtually no delay in synchronization, even when both players had spotty WiFi. A very minor pseudo-quibble - I wasn't really sure why the game assigned us to different characters with different personality traits when those characters and their traits never seemed to appear in the narrative; that detail seemed almost like it was left over from a different, more narrative game. But that was the only loose end in a highly polished experience.

Unboxing the Mind of a Cryptic Killer was an unexpectedly delightful game! It’s got a bit of everything I love: A gritty plot and back story, gorgeous illustrations, and tantalisingly fun puzzles. Not only this but it also plays really well with a unique online two-player interface. I can’t recommend it enough!
