This blog has seen a distinct lack of updates lately. That is because we have been rather busy with the development of a new escape room game: Oculta—Spanish for “hidden”.
Now, a little rant:
escape room is a bit of a misnomer;
in Oculta you do not have to escape any room—there is not even a room anywhere!
But hanging onto names is a pointless exercise and let’s agree that a escape room game is just a series of puzzles tied loosely together with a storyline.
And that is what Oculta is in a nutshell: Alfredo is a worried father that has become estranged to his daughter Ariadna, an influencer, to the point that he no longer knows where she is. Being a computer neophyte, Alfredo has come to you for help in hopes that you will follow her trail through all the popular Internet sites she frequents and finally find her. You will need to reveal messages hidden in Instagram accounts, decipher coded images send by email, and discover her whereabouts so that Alfredo can stop worrying so much about her.
Unfortunately, that means that we had to put Flick Karts on hold until we have finished Oculta. But now is time to pick it up again and we hope to release the first alpha version soon.
Time will tell.
