The Cypher Files

An Escape Room. in a Book!




The new interactive puzzle book from the creator of the bestselling cult phenomenon Journal 29

The Cypher Files is an utterly unique reading experience. In this brain-bending interactive game, you'll solve puzzles on every page, and obtain keys to move forward by submitting answers online. To solve each puzzle, you'll need to think outside the book.

You are an agent of CY.P.H.E.R., the secret international agency working on 'unsolvable' code-based cases. Called upon to investigate cryptic clues discovered in the wake of a series of mysterious disappearances, the clock is ticking to crack the codes before it's too late.

To escape this book, you must write, draw, search, fold and cut pages, explore virtual escape rooms and think laterally to identify the perpetrator and solve the mystery.

All you need to play is a pencil, a pair of scissors, an internet connection, and a curious mind.

I can guarantee no one - and I do mean no one - has ever seen or completed a puzzle book quite like this. To give you an idea of how challenging The Cypher Files is, it took me a couple of weeks to work through, and some of the puzzles had me so baffled and curious that I literally took the problem I was trying to solve to work with me as I couldn't get it, or the desire to figure it out, out of my head. It will delight - and possibly stress out - even the most competent of puzzle fans, offering something genuinely different for people to find on bookshelves everywhere; and for that alone, at a time when truly 'one of a kind' items of any description are practically unheard of in today's mass market, Chassapakis should be highly commended
