Rating: 5

Alternate reality “puppetmaster” Dagmar gets caught in Jakarta in the middle of a revolution. She manages to escape the country by organizing a game on the spot with the objective of getting herself home. This crowdsourcing effort wins her free of the violence, but she’s soon in the middle of a mystery involving one of her friends from college. In order to find out who committed the murder, she turns her skills as a game designer to that end.
