Escape Tales: The Awakening is a card game based on the escape room concept, but you're not limited by time when it comes to finishing this adventure as the game is focused on the story and your exploration of it, while engaging the puzzles within and making choices that will immerse you deeply. As for the story, here's the set-up:

Players take on the role of Sam, whose daughter has been in a coma for over two months and whose doctors still cannot explain how this happened or what caused it. According to them, everything is fine with the girl; she's healthy and shouldn't be in this condition. Sam is desperate and looks for answers everywhere he can, which leads to a weird meeting with Mark.

Mark's son was once in a similar situation, and his father was able to help wake the boy up. He has given Sam a scary-looking book and said that inside this book he will find a ritual called "The Awakening". But Mark warned Sam that he needs to prepare himself mentally since this ritual will transfer him into another dimension, where he should be able to find his daughter and understand what is the cause of this state. If Sam's lucky enough, then he will be able to wake her up as well. Sam has held onto the book for more than a week. Finally, he's ready to go into the basement and perform a ritual. Are you ready, too?

One of the best “escape room” style games out there
Fun puzzles challenging at the right measure, wrapped on an interesting narrative. I played with my wife and we loved it. Can’t wait to play the next on the series.

Great Game for 2-Player Coop Experience
I enjoyed everything in this game. The puzzles are satisfying, the story is nice. However, the artwork has room for improvement.

Worst gaming experience of my life.
Action token mechanic is awful. You guess where to put an action token to search. Run out of tokens, grab a doom card and get flavor text and more tokens. Puzzles are absolutely awful. I would bet my SOUL that everyone is cheating. They present to you cards with cryptic stuff on them with no instructions on what they want. Symbols, numbers, a word, letters???? The hints give you much needed instructions on what you are even attempting to do. Even then the puzzles are only even guessable at what they want when you know the answer. One puzzle was super easy, one was ok, the rest were table flipping rage. I can only guess that the designers do not speak English and they just crammed in puzzles to a narrative. Puzzles that usually have instructions but they couldn't think of how to put the instructions into the narrative so that made them hints. Waste of time and waste of materials. This is a kickstarter scam imo. Nobody can figure these out. Nobody because you don't know the rules behind figuring them out. Im trying to finish it, I'm a good way through, but I don't think I can put up with the stress of it. I've dealt with puzzles since the 80's, love mysteries, played escape rooms, escape room games, and never EVER have I seen anything like this. I cannot believe that reviewers were too afraid of people thinking they were stupid to review this correctly.
