What do you get if you combine a book, an escape room and an old-school "Point & Click" adventure?
Newcomer designer Friedemann Findeisen tried exactly that and came up with Cantaloop - Book 1: Breaking into prison. The first book in Lookout Games new interactive adventure book series is a playable thriller about a hacker, a lady and a crook. Oh! And - of course - a bad guy you want to take revenge on. Explore your way through beautifully illustrated locations, collect and combine items in order to solve riddles and talk to crazy characters in order to advance in the story. A book full of fun and a new approach to story telling - at least for the board game market.
In the first part of the Cantaloop Trilogy, you embody the small-time criminal Oz "Hook" Carpenter who just returned from exile, seeking revenge on the person who made you leave in the first place. But thats easier said than done: You wont stand a chance against the most powerful crook of the city all by yourself. You need a team of people with a unique set of skills if you even want the slightest chance to succeed.
Explore 20 beautifully illustrated locations, talk to characters and solve tricky puzzles to gather your crew in this "Point'n'Click" like game. Search and collect items, figure out where to use them and combine them with each other.

OK, lets be honest: Is this just another escape room game?
No. While the game mechanics certainly could be used to create an escape room style game, "Cantaloop" is not doing this. The game is more like a classic "Point & Click" adventure, known from PC.
Why are there no rules to download?
"Cantaloop" is an interactive book and so are the rules. The introduction of the book teaches you all rules on the fly so that studying the rules is not necessary!
