Voodoo priestess, Julie White’s ghost haunts The Manchac Swamp. Her promise, “One day I’m gonna die, and I am gonna take all of you with me.” came true as a hurricane struck the surrounding three towns the day of her funeral. Can you figure out how to banish Julie’s ghost for good?
The puzzles in this room required keen observational skills. We had to search and notice details surrounding props and set pieces.
Julie’s front porch was very well-built and achieved an element of fear surrounding the uncertainty of what was behind her windows, on the other side of the door… The other set elements to the game were fairly standard in that the space that was meant to be outdoors did not make use of any stand-out features in order to establish that setting.
Each puzzle within this room really tied into the overall narrative. They all made sense thematically and lead up to some fun surprises.
Beyond the well-constructed set piece, the room reflected a bit more of an older design style. Nevertheless, the room played well as a beginner-friendly experience with some interesting bits to keep more experienced players intrigued.
