You will NEVER guess the villain until they’re revealed. I guarantee it.

During the first few hours, this game does itself a major disservice. It is slow and you aren’t sure whether you’re playing a mystery game for kids or a deep, mature murder story with severe consequences. But past that initial hurdle, the game blossoms into the latter: a masterpiece of storytelling on a scale I’ve seldom witnessed.

Quite frankly, I stand in awe of the writers: they’ve executed their mystery plot to one of the highest standards of perfection I’ve ever seen. How is it even possible to craft such a nuanced, intricate, refined story with such wildly unexpected twists, while being the omniscient author? The story is told so intelligently and meticulously and with so much attention to detail that I was floored time after time after time. How did they put themselves into the player’s shoes so convincingly? They already know what’s going to happen: they wrote the damn narrative. But they have to assume the persona of someone who is stumbling into a world completely foreign to them. They achieve this so absolutely that you seamlessly oscillate between being torn onto the paths of deceit, truth, helplessness, revelation, despair, hope etc.

Your mind is constantly being pulled in multiple directions at once. Even though your brain is fully engaged trying to keep track of all the time-stamps, clues, events, alibis, relationships, possible suspects and so on, you’re never overwhelmed. Your mind is always absorbed to 100%, but the writers never cross that magic line of 101%. You’re never completely overwhelmed. What a divine balancing act. WOW! Makes me want to try my hand at writing myself.

And might I say: for being such a gauntlet of death, dread and despair, that is some funky-a_ss music. What an exquisite juxtaposition. I love it!

Especially cases #02 and #06 are some of the most fun I’ve ever had playing detective. Trigger Happy Havoc is a fantastic game worth your time.

1. You know, Cendir, that is a great question. Many people, especially younger generations, feel that way. The rate of change in the world and in society, from the last generation to our current generation, has been unprecedented in human history. Consequently, many people are lost and struggle to find their place. Then again, we are not as different from the ancient Greeks living 2.500 years ago as we might think. Certain fundamentals never change. History repeats itself. As such, we can learn from history and from our past. We can learn from the wisdom of the Ancients, without paying the price in blood they had to pay.

2. One concrete solution to existential dread is self-knowledge. Explore your past and ask yourself why you are the way are. But this is no easy task. Oftentimes we must rely on an external source to show us what we don’t yet know. Stefan Molyneux on YouTube does some fantastic work on self-knowledge. Only after watching his debates and discussions did I acquire the mental tools to analyse my own past, which greatly aided me in understanding myself. Doing so can lift a lot of guilt, dread and hopelessness from your soul.

3. You could also go one step further. Do you know what the father of self-knowledge is? It is philosophy. Living a life of harsh truths is infinitely preferable to living a life of comfortable lies. And the truth isn’t even as cruel as people would have you think. So, how does one go about uncovering the truth of this world? Ayn Rand does great work in this area with her novels “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead”. These books are wonderful stories just as much as they are treaties on great philosophy, living a good life and the incredible heights humans can reach.

But if all that doesn’t help, once in a while, it might help to ponder on what Aristotle said: All things in moderation, except Virtue.
