Root Of All Evil
“Root of All Evil delivered deep dark storytelling, beautiful props, ciphers, and an atmosphere reminiscent of the movie Seven, if it had been set 70 years earlier. Playing it felt like we were unearthing something that had long been buried.”

". . . Root of All Evil is heads and shoulders over 99% of the other products on the market today. Narratively satisfying and complete, a splatter of puzzling, physical products galore. A top product from the minute you open the very first cardboard box until the minute you. . . "

“Root of All Evil is truly a narrative EXPERIENCE and is the the best story I've seen in an at-home game. One thing I really loved is that the puzzles were not necessarily required to complete the game."
