Immersive and not too difficult

I ended up sharing this experience with a friend of mine. He and I both had a blast reading through the included materials and drawing our own connections between the things provided. Then the main event itself was a great time. Extremely high production value on all artifacts provided. It all felt extremely authentic.

Speechless

The level of detail, the finesse, the attention to narrative, the world-building... an unforgettable experience.

Immensely entertaining and very well thought out

This was my first MPC experience, even though I heard about them years ago. I have a friend who has become a shut-in and I thought an MPC package would delight his towering intellect. Before I sent him one, however, I thought I should test one out.

I have been a horror fan for decades and read Chamber's "The Yellow Sign" the first time in college, so this was a very tempting adventure. When MPC offered a March Monday Madness Sale with the relics from the now out-of-stock "Yellow Sign" combined with the "Hastur" experience, well, had to do it. I am so glad I did.

I will say, as a warning to other first timers, if I didn't know that this was an entertainment, I probably would have tossed the initial mailing out as junk mail - and you NEED something in that envelope! That tells me that I should at least let my friend know to expect something - unusual - in the post soon. (If he signs up to a Nigerian Prince's bank account scam because of this, I will be sooo embarrassed)

I won't be repetitive, you've heard it before: Quality - AMAZING, Details - UNBELIEVABLE, etc.

The puzzles were challenging, and some took me several tries before I had the "Ah Ha!" moment (which made them all the more enjoyable). My advise, READ THE DOCUMENTS CAREFULLY AND REPEATEDLY. It's all there waiting to be found. Sometime it just takes a few additional readings to see the clue. And don't ignore the "fluff" around the edges of the pages. Sometimes even an ad can give a clue.

Still in progress, but quite possibly MPC's best

I am so impressed and delighted by the cleverness on display here, not to mention the attention to detail, as is expected. Hastur is difficult to review, because to explain what makes it so good is to ultimately give away too much. Suffice it to say that I am loving every minute of it, showed it to a boardgame friend and he may be hooked on your company, as i already have become. Thank you NPH for helping me find this and thank you Mysterious Package Company for the outstanding work that you do, and now, with Hastur, I believe you have reached a new milestone. Worth every minute of your time, and worth every penny. When it becomes available again, do not hesitate, you must submit click on yes to buy GIVE YOURSELF TO THE TERRIBLE BEAUTy OF HASTUR!!!

Fantastic...

The online form is one of the best web elements to any product like this I've ever seen. Normally, I'm turned off from the online content (I like the visceral feel of the real objects) but that form, especially the "I am not a robot" part of it... wow.
