Panic Room: Masked

Mr Lewis Denby, he of Beefjack, occasional RPS postings and, well, all manner of gaming publications the land over, has made a game. It's called Masked, it's a room escape game, but it treads where that odd, deathless genre usually fears to - the realm of emotion. "You're trapped in a room, for goodness' sake." he observes. "That must be one of the most emotional scenarios it's possible to be in!"

Made in AGS, it constitutes a few haunting point'n'click minutes, it's a creepy mystery with an all-knowing, all-seeing narrator in the SHODAN/GlaDOS vein (but a rather more human connection to to the player character) and, aside from a couple of stylistic wobbles, it's a confident first effort from Sir Denby. Grab it here.
