Me and my bestfriend have been playing this, and all I can say is wow. It's right up our alley, and it is so cooperative, which ik that's the point, but it's so far bringing us such laughs and fun figuring all the puzzles out. So, long story short, we love it and want more. I hope there's more updates that add so much more content! We're so invested and just enthralled, love it all! I've seen others complain about crashes but we have not had any whilst playing, consider what you're playing on to

The best cooperative puzzle game I ever play!!! Never imagined there would be an awesome game like this before. It's a brand new idea to practice communication, awesome gameplay, great graphics, storage space friendly. The only drawback here is THERE ARE ONLY 5 EPISODES😭.. I really need more episode! I was expecting there would be about 10 episodes at least. Since it's a duo game, I was expecting we'll get 5 episodes per person, which means we'll definitely get 10 eps if we did it together.

Game keeps crashing at puzzle with 2 antennas and TV. At start of the game there's always notification "sign in failed". Game crashed just now, didn't save so we have to start from beginning again I guess. Great game though. Appreciate the quick response and update. Got better, still crashed at the same puzzle though. Skipped it and finished the game. Thanks for this great game, waiting for next one. Cheers.

We apologize for the issues you've encountered! We recently released an update fixing the sign-in and TV puzzle crash. To resume from your last level, click "Choose level" when creating a game - it saves progress between cutscenes. We're glad you're enjoying the game despite the setbacks!
