Their description: Legend tells the story of two pretty sisters, Minah and Linah, who were inseparable. On one unfortunate day, one of them got kidnapped from their abode by pirates.
Being a Laksamana (an Admiral), you have been commanded by the King to investigate the kidnapping and disappearance of the sisters at the Pirates’ lair.
Whispers from the village says that the Sisters’ Islands emerged after a storm broke out after the kidnapping.
Unravel the mystery of the missing inseparable Sisters and the two mysterious islands that emerged overnight!
Sisters Island is a decent little adventure, if admittedly rough around the edges. There’s an attempt at sticking to a pirate-y setting (despite the fact that they couldn’t alter the rooms too much), a good mix of puzzles, and some fun flourishes. Unfortunately there’s also one egregiously anachronistic use of tech, and the room’s most rigorous puzzle is simultaneously the easiest to misinterpret.
Do note that searching skills are a must — although at least the hiding places aren’t unfair. Some aspects of this room also make it unsuitable for people with mobility issues.
I can’t actually talk about my favourite parts of the room without spoiling them, so I’ll just say that there are fun surprises in store, some of which may even impress experienced teams. Even if you think you already know the story of Sisters Island, this room is still solidly WORTH A TRY.
