Paranormal Detective: Escape from the 90's is an extremely fun escape room game that knows how to have a good time. One of the things I love about it is that it doesn't try to take itself too seriously! They absolutely nailed the 90's vibe and you can tell the devs just had a blast recording the bits as you progress through the puzzles. For those who haven't experienced escape rooms yet, I highly recommend this as a good introduction. If you get stuck, the optional hint system does a really good job at helping you along without blatantly giving away the answers. For future development, I'm aware the devs are looking at an Arcade Only game mode where you can just spend time playing the arcade games, with multiplayer strongly desired by the devs as well. Fingers crossed there's enough enthusiasm from players to realize this game's full potential! As it stands, it's well worth the purchase just for the single player storyline that it has right now. I can't recommend this game enough.
