The result is a tense and truly cooperative experience where players must work together, communicate well, plan effectively, and use the strengths of their investigators in an attempt to stay a step ahead on the mean streets of the city.


So does it offer hidden information or any kind to enable single players to play together but also play for themselves or is it basically a shared-labour solitaire game?

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks.

There isn't any information that players keep secret from each other. The timed planning phase has players working together to figure out the same puzzle, but each person individually figuring out their own piece of it. There isn't time for everyone to be a part of every decision so it doesn't feel like working together on a solitaire game.

Is there a time constraint going? Like a real time clock?

If not, I can only see the mechanics being shared-labour-solitaire.

Okay, so it "fixes" the issue like Space Alert does. Not my thing then but that doesn't mean its in any way bad per se. If I get to see it I will want to play it to see how stressful it is "for me".
