Although Unforeseen Incidents has only been out a couple of months, it’s already enjoyed a tremendous amount of rave reviews. The classic style interactive mystery, involving a conspiracy and an unknown disease, has been described as “charming,” “enjoyable,” and “full of personality.”
There is charm to be found in every nook and cranny of Unforeseen Incident’s world.
