MISTCO is a first person point and click puzzle adventure, similar to point and click puzzle adventure games you may have played in the ’90’s or more modern escape room games. A simple gameplay interface consisting of the world that you explore and an inventory panel where you can collect, combine and use items you find along the way to solve puzzles and escape the various areas.
Explore areas, by pointing and tapping, collect hidden objects and take in your surroundings. You will need all of your puzzle adventure solving skills to put together a plan to make your way through the island, solving riddles and down the many paths of escape.
How you tackle the puzzles is down to you. Each puzzle has a logical solution, so take your time, there is no rush, just enjoy the adventure and the process of understanding what you have to do to gain entry to somewhere or escape.
MISTICO - a small mysterious Spanish island hidden somewhere in the Balearics. You have often heard rumours of its existence, however, actually locating MISTICO has proven a puzzle adventure in itself.
After a drunken warm evening in a local bar you overhear some sun weathered locals speaking in Spanish. Picking up some of the words you learnt exploring the local area you decide to eavesdrop in on the conversation.
“¡Sí !, tengo un mapa claro a la isla de mistico.”
Another man suddenly appears at the entrance of the bar and beckons the men to leave everything and come quickly.
I watched the group arguing outside and they hurriedly jump in a sun battered car and leave. I take one last drag from my bottle and decide it was time to head off myself.
On the way out I notice the men had left a torn scrap of paper on the table they were seated at. I looked closer and noticed what was written on the paper, it looked like a number puzzle or cypher. I quickly realised what I was looking at, longitude and latitude coordinates, scribbled in pencil.
“Surely not” I thought. “The exact location of MISTICO?”
Hiring a local boat, I set off on a journey on the high seas to where the coordinates pinpointed the location of the island. However, the journey didn’t go exactly to plan. Nearing the coordinates I quickly ran into trouble, all I remember was clear blue skies turning black and a strange humming sound.
Opening my eyes, I looked up and saw strange old house in the middle of nowhere….
