The late 80’s, a foster home in Oregon — Two ten-year-olds met and bonded over their shared love of a comic series called Super Star Cadets. The series followed an intergalactic adventuring duo who explore the universe in search of legendary artifacts. 

Inspired by the heroes in the comics, Pat and Gretta’s playtime emulated the stories in the comics. They explored places outside the safety of their home, collected strange samples, and kept an audio log of their missions.

On a warm day in September 1987, their adventure took them into the woods, but only one of them came back. 

Now, three decades after his strange and sudden disappearance, Gretta is still searching for Pat. She needs your help to find Cadet Turner.

 

Synopsis

Pat Turner and Gretta Brown are two ten-year-olds who met in a foster home and bonded over their shared love of a comic series called Super Star Cadets. Their playtime revolved around emulating the adventures of their heroes. In September 1987, while on one such adventure, Pat and Gretta found a strange artifact and Pat was never seen again.

You (the recipient) were also a fan of the comics and contributed to their recent crowdfunding campaign to turn them into a cartoon. The campaign was a success and you receive a thank-you letter in the mail from the creators, prompting you to visit the new website.

While you’re browsing the site, you receive a message from Gretta. She tells you that she knows where Pat is and she needs your help to save him.

She sends you everything she’s managed to work out, and all the items that are relevant to Pat’s disappearance. Now, it’s up to you to piece the contents together, find Pat, and bring him back home.

This is the first Experience in our catalogue that has a companion app for your phone. It offers an exciting new way to interact with the tangible contents and enables us to present new puzzle mechanics.

 

Audience

The Disappearance of Cadet Turner is our most family-friendly Experience. It is suitable for anyone over 8 years old, however young readers will require the assistance of an adult. Your recipient will enjoy it if they are fans of science fiction, comic books, adventure, and 80’s nostalgia.

Update - Received Replacement package

Just an update, though my first package was lost in transit, they did replace it and even included a challenge coin to make up for the delay. Thank you for your customer service!

Incredible and unforgettable experience!

Intended as surprise gift for a friend, months before her birthday, I try to always give unique and unexpected gifts to my best friends and this seemed perfect. It was an amazing experience to share with my friend and an unforgettable gift for her. Absolute perfection!

My friend works within the comic industry professionally and is busy with commissions, she also regularly receives letters from crowdfunding campaigns about possible involvement, and I didn't want the initial letter to get lost in the shuffle and she lives with her sister so I let her in on the surprise so she checked their mail everyday to make sure my friend received it.

This escaped her sister's detection since my friend briefly skimmed it but was interested enough to take it to her office, where she stored it for two weeks before tossing it into a waste bin, having not received a follow-up email from whoever sent it. It was that authentic! I received a call one morning and my friend wondered if I knew why her sister burst into her room at midnight holding the letter that she refused to answer questions about but insisted she follow up on. I refused to answer questions and she dove into solving the puzzle updating me when she made progress and especially when she was frustrated! The entire experience has built wonderful memories, inside jokes, and is a gift she treasures.

Fun new mystery to Enjoy!

Cadent Turner is my second MPC mystery and I am hooked! I tried not to read anything about the story or elements and it was very enjoyable to discover the multimedia aspect organically. (I spent several hours with a cassette deck plotting out every sound, playing it forwards and backwards, and hitting those buttons sequences before deciding to "just use the app")...

I cannot wait to annoy my wife describing every step in detail=]

My only little quip... Considering the format and material I have yet to find any Easter Eggs. Maybe they are there and I have not found them yet, but some little surprises would increase the joy by magnitudes=]

Fun experience

I really enjoyed this first foray into the Mysterious Package Company though my one complaint would be that it was a very easy and quick game. Probably best for teens or people only just starting out in the world of mysteries/escape room and the like.

Excellent Experience!

I was excited to see that MPC has branched out to include different technologies in their experiences. This one was fairly easy for me to solve, but the experience was fun, engaging, and exactly what I needed (I love comic books!). The interactive elements were not overly intrusive and the way it was implemented was pretty darn cool. My only piece of advice is that when you are ready for the app, make sure you are in a very well lit area or it won't register the badge or the cassette. Excellent experience all the way around!
