Primarily narrative with very few puzzles. Low-to-moderate difficulty.


Contagion R

Whether you are brave, bold, curious or foolish, if you intend to immerse in this story, be warned: this is not merely a story about a scientific breakthrough gone bad. This is a story that can leave psychic scars and alter the course of humanity. Brace yourself. 



In the race for global domination, the world was once divided between countries governed by communist versus capitalist ideologies. Within the East-West dichotomy each side was convinced the other was evil and consequently the struggle for world supremacy ensued.

Fueled by fear and deep-seated mistrust, scientists on both sides of the Iron Curtain worked relentlessly to secure widespread hegemony for their regimes. While nuclear annihilation was a terrifying threat to people of all nations, one side developed something far more unfathomable, far more diabolical, far more sinister in its intent.

There was indeed a Great Evil, but it made no distinction between cultures. And contrition was not enough to stop it

    Cold War Secrets

    This is another revamp of an older MPC experience called Risen. I ended up purchasing this one when I heard they added a puzzling component to the game and I did enjoy it quite a bit!

    You are chosen as the keeper of a great secret that you must uncover in these two mailings. Most of the experience comes from mailing 1 with the big reveal being mailing 2 with an uncooperative metal box. There are two puzzles and the second one was a little tricky if you aren't paying careful attention.

    The narrative was well done and I enjoyed reading through the letters and decoding the messages. I even found pleasure googling some of the things mentioned - I also did from Russian translating just for kicks! Much of MPC experiences are getting your money's worth by how much you invest in the experience and while this experience is shorter than the bigger one's, I had fun unpacking this with a friend. I recommend for anyone who enjoys shorter bursts of puzzling, 20th century aged components, and the Cold War.

    Product is cool, but I cannot open the lock. I seem to have missed something. I managed to "force" the box open, but what is the combination?
