Mark takes a look at “The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel”.

The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel puts one or more players in the roles of unhinged writer Jack Torrance’s wife and son, Wendy and Danny, who must work together and find a way out of the mysterious resort! Driven by the “Coded Chronicles” mechanism, which requires you to unlock clues and solve puzzles for unique storytelling codes, the game allows you to use psychic abilities like “the shining” to get through more than two challenging hours of escaping the threat of homicidal Jack and the paranormal hotel itself! Since every Coded Chronicles game is enriched with thematic details and objectives, escaping captivity makes this edition’s difficulty level as hard as a dizzying hedge maze (minus the time limit)!
