Vlog Ep. 279: 50 Clues - The Leopold Trilogy

Today's #BaduyPride featured tabletop game is 50 Clues: The Leopold Trilogy. This set of immersive puzzles games puts players in the shoes of Maria, a woman who is determined to find her son in order to save the world from the menace of a figure known as Leopold. How she'll manage to get out of the mental institution she has been committed to in order to achieve this is the big challenge of the game. And add on a mature content warning for this particular narrative, and it makes for quite the compelling story.

Tobie and I enjoyed this experience and it made for a nice change of pace versus other puzzle games we've played. 50 Clues is a great reminder that there's still a lot of room in this game genre for more kinds of stories to be told with innovative game systems empowering them. And I'm super glad that Tobie found us copies of this trilogy of games so we got to experience this story in full.
