Mother of Frankenstein is a narrative puzzle game based on the life of Mary Shelley. It is a collaborative experience featuring 12-18 hours of gameplay divided between three volumes. You'll solve puzzles, construct 2D and 3D jigsaw puzzles, and closely read a series of gorgeously rendered documents, all of it designed to tell an exciting and emotional story unlike anything you've experienced in a tabletop game before.
In Volume 3, you'll return to Castle Frankenstein, which you'll build as a fully realized 300-piece 3D puzzle (which sits atop the 2D puzzle floorplan from Volume Two). Then you'll have to solve a set of fiendish puzzles in order to learn how to construct the elaborate origami roofs for the various castle buildings. Finally, you'll progress through a series of "advent calendar" style diary entries while searching out details in the castle, each time placing a new window into the 3D puzzle. By the time you've finished, you'll have finally learned Mary's terrible secret...and created a beautiful object you just might want to keep on your mantle forever.
Mother of Frankenstein was created by New York Times bestselling author Tommy Wallach and Terry Pettigrew-Rolapp. Tommy and Terry are the founders of Hatch Escapes, home of Lab Rat, the #1 escape room in Los Angeles (LA Mag, TERPECA), and the forthcoming The Ladder.
