Marseille, Fall 2019. You receive the letter of a notary that comes with a strange black box. In his last will, your father reveals the existence of a family treasure, hidden somewhere in Europe. To find it, he leaves you objects and documents that belonged to him, as well as to your ancestor. You have to shed light on the past in order to be able to claim your legacy...

A cooperative investigation game inspired by escape games, with real objects to offer an even more immersive experience.

An immersive investigation

LEGACY includes more than 40 realistic objects and documents (letters, cards, keys, pen, 3D glasses... and even a miniature Eiffel Tower!) to solve a series of puzzles.

Search and manipulate

Like in escape rooms, you will have to examine, manipulate and combine items: apply your observation and logic skills.

A scenario divided in 2 independant episodes

With Eiffel 1889, your adventure beings in Paris at the end of 19th century, during the construction of the Eiffel Tower. Then Hellas 2019 invites you to a treasure hunt on a Greek island today.

Between virtual and real worlds

You will have to consult and interact with online content: real information websites or fake pages created by us (videos, sounds, social networks...).

Gather a team

Cooperate to solve the case! It is possible to take your chance alone, but for most scenarios it is recommended to gather 2 to 4 players, over 14 year-old.

No game rules

Open the mysterious black box, read a few instructions, and start playing! LEGACY requires no preparation.

How to play?

1) Read the notary's letter

Inside the box, you will find a letter from your father's notary, Maître Santini, who gives you his testamentary dispositions, as well as the rules to abide to in order to solve the puzzles. Read it carefully!

2) Log into the website

A laptop, a tablet or a smartphone with an internet connection are required to play.

Open the game launch page indicated on the notary's letter.

You will find there instructions as well as a link to hints, to use if you're stuck during the game.

You can then start playing. "Eiffel 1889" lasts around 75 to 120 minutes, and "Hellas 2019" around 60 to 90 minutes. It's up to you to decide if you prefer to play them in one game session or not!

3) Examine the items & documents to solve the case

Read the documents, examine the items, inspect everything carefully.
Search, handle, decipher, make connections between the various elements to decipher secrets codes and try to find the hidden treasure...

You will have to enter the solutions on the game website.

If you're a team of several players, share the tasks and don't forget to communicate between you!

Press reviews

Surprisingly challenging (...) An intriguing set of convincingly realistic objects” (...) a puzzle hunt, but the narrative framing and the naturalistic presentation of the clues are straight from an escape room.

Escape The Review

Clever and compact puzzle design (...) Well-designed game flow (...) Well-thought out hint system (...) It's rare to see a hand-made puzzle game that has deliberate art direction.

Room Escape Artist

If you enjoy escape rooms, mysteries or puzzles of any sort, there's no doubt you'll enjoy the challenge.
