The Curious Elevator of Mr Hincks puzzle game on KS

November 14, 2019 - 8:56pm

The escape room enthusiasts at Team Bluefish have started a new Kickstarter project for The Curious Elevator of Mr. Hincks. You see, the infamous Mr. Hincks has grown wearisome of simply solving all of the world’s great puzzles, and has now created a masterpiece of his own. To this end, Mr. Hincks has designed a wondrous elevator, but there is a hitch. Each time one “elevates” to the next floor, a puzzle must be solved. Enter the right solution, and the elevator progresses – perhaps up, perhaps down, perhaps even none of the above. At the end, at the TOP, one can meet the illustrious Mr. Hincks and have their name forever inscribed in his list of puzzle solvers.

Backers of the Kickstarter campaign will receive a packet of physical components, a “parcel most cryptic”. This packet includes maps, articles, journal entries, photographs, and various ephemera necessary to solve each elevator floor. The elevator itself is accessed through a web browser, which along with the packet are the only things required to solve the labyrinth.

The Kickstarter Campaign for The Curious Elevator of Mr. Hincks continues through November 22, and the packet is expected to deliver in December. The webpage for the elevator can be accessed now by clicking here for a demo puzzle.
