A Sequel to Madorica Real Estate, an Escape Game That Uses a Pen and Paper, Is in Development
An official sequel to Madorica Real Estate is being developed for PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch. They haven’t announced a release date yet, but they hope to get it out by the end of the year.
A pen and paper are the only tools needed to solve the puzzles in Madorica Real Estate. When you start working at the Madorica Real Estate Agency, you’ll be in a city where many of the houses are haunted. The firm president left a few tips about how to get rid of the spirits in a home before renting it out.
Memos of clues found in rooms in the houses will also be taken by the players to solve riddles. To avoid having to rely just on the game screen, the official website provides layouts for each property in PDF format.
Marica Real Estate’s design was lauded for being deep like an analog board game despite its small size of only 20 levels. According to Nintendo World Report, the game’s Nintendo Switch edition received an 8.5 out of 10.
As of late, Gift Ten Industry has been working on a wide range of projects, including Madorica Real Estate. Audio Party Pack, Kaminazo, and Kotoba Hakase, an app that combines software and cards to learn foreign languages, were all released by them (roughly translates to Language Professor).
Aside from that, the sequel will have participation from greendice’s Tumbleweed real-world escape room business. It will continue to use floor designs, but Tumbleweed’s know-how will be incorporated into the game to add even more concepts. There will be a total of 20 stages, as in the first game.
Tsukasa Masuko will once again be in charge of music production. In other news, just 50 copies of the original Madorica Real Estate soundtrack will be made available on cassette tape.
