Dev Commentary


This mission took a lot of work from our design team to get just right. Certain walls and lights were strategically placed in order to make the environment part of the puzzles. It was a fun build for us because it had to be ‘bleak’ in its nature. We had to improvise and be creative puzzle designs as too much tech wouldn’t lend well to the theme.
