The Missing Locksmith
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
The Missing Locksmith is an alternate reality game that sees you use real world tools to delve through the lives of three thieves.
After a heist goes wrong, the crew can't trust anyone - even each other. So, they set up a safe that needs one digit from each of them, to make sure no-one disappears with the haul.
Can you crack their combination?
Starting with the clues you've been sent, you'll need to solve codes, send emails, decipher voice notes, and hack websites to find the information you need.
Be careful, though - you're not the only one who wants it...
Do I need to have played an ARG before?
This is a short online experience that doesn't require knowledge of the ARG genre.
Do I need anything to play?
Just the downloaded files, a web browser, and an email account.
How many people can play?
This can be played through solo, or as an escape room-style game for a group. To play with more than one person, distribute the starting clues between players (without looking at them), and go from there!
Who created this game?
The Missing Locksmith was created by Elle Osili-Wood as an online Easter egg hunt during the 2020 lockdown. That'll make sense when you play it.
