Your friend is missing and the last place she visited was this shop. You have to go look for her.
This game builds on "Night Terrors", which we played many months ago. Fortunately that didn't matter since it was only the story that made a bit more sense since we had played the other game. You could still have a great time without playing the prequal.
360 degrees view of the room and a few navigations to look behind the counter. Telescape based. We did not like how they handled inventory. It was the main page and static so annoying to navigate to and you couldn't do cool things there.
Puzzles were great though we did find a counting puzzle a bit tedious (what counted and what did not?). Quite easy but that just meant that you had progress all the time. Nice acting in the in-game videos. It is a bit creepy mostly because of the story-line and theme, but nothing really scary. I would probably not play this with young children though. There is nightmare-building props all around :).
We would recommend this even if you haven't played Night Terrors.
Good creepy stuff. I really enjoyed the story continuation from Night Terrors. It is definitely their most challenging room.
This room carries over some themes from their Night Terrors room, but fortunately it wasn't necessary to remember any details, because we had played that one a while back. I think this one was a stronger room than Night Terrors, with some very cool elements in the set, and a couple of legitimate jump scares. The ending felt a bit anticlimactic (although better than their Detective Office room which had a very lame ending). But overall a good game with some creative elements.
Second part of a trilogy, and in this one the story follows on from Night Terrors. You're assisitng an investigation into a missing vlogger (who was already investigating a missing person), and the trail has led you to a mysterious and rather ominous curio shoppe. But don't worry if you've not played the first part, its not vital to have played it first (although it is a great room to play, so add it to your to do list!)
This is an atmospheric and rather deceptive room, at first glance it looks like a fairly straightforward escape room, but don't be fooled theres hidden depths to this adventure. Whilst investigating the shelves and curios you will find some wonderful set pieces of theatre amongst the well themed and varied puzzles. The story progresses well and each stage solved gives you more of the narrative, building up the backstory and setting the scene for the spooky finale.
Add to all that a host who plays is character very well and emotes wonderfully to draw you in even further and a most inventive use of telescape which you may or may not notice (but if you do I hope you're as impressed as I was!), and you've got a cracking adventure. Can't wait for part three to find out how it all ends....

Some friends had already played ‘Night Terrors’, the precursor to this game, and had raved about it. Happily, you don’t need to have played that game to play this one, so I duly signed up and we began to look for a missing blogger who had disappeared after visiting the eponymous shop…
While I'm sure the real-life version of the Shoppe ought to be fun, I absolutely don't regret playing it online - the adaptation is great, and fits seamlessly within the trilogy.
