Vlog Ep. 244: Star Wars: Unlock!

For this episode of #BaduyPride, our featured tabletop game is the franchise-specific escape room game, Star Wars: Unlock! This puzzle game combines the joy of the Unlock! franchise (as mentioned in our episode about escape room games) with the far, far fantasy of Star Wars. And this game really surprised us as it combined both elements well and managed to put us as players into brand-new Star Wars adventures.

And while a lot of times it can feel like "selling out" when an existing game adopts a franchise-related theme as a reskin, this was a great collaboration. Then again, Unlock! has always had a lot of great storytelling potential and we also loved their thematic works like the games based on things like Sherlock Holmes, The Wizard of Oz, and Alice in Wonderland, to cite a few notable ones. And hopefully, this won't be the last of these efforts for the Unlock team. 

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
