Let us take a tour into the past. It's 1985; some of us were born already, some were only expected, while the other used to play in the yard with their friends already. We'd like to introduce you to one of the Mystery house quests. It's a new quest house that has started out with three rooms with different backgrounds and complexity levels at once. Today, we're going to tell you about one of these.
Ever wondered how did the world look in 1985? Having started the quest, you find yourself traveling in a time machine. All of a sudden, something goes wrong and you get stuck in the past. You find yourself in Riga, the capital city of the Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic. The calendar says it's 1985. Your mission is simple - just like the people of the time. Your task is to find a key to unlock the door that would lead you back to the present. You've got 60 minutes to do that.
Having immersed ourselves into the 1980s, we find ourselves surrounded by contemporary furniture, posters and other items. Tho small rooms where every item reminds of the past. A typewriter on an old wooden table, just like the ones we could see in the offices of our parents, a wardrobe next to the wall. The neighboring room has an old computer, memorial medals on the shelves, a map with lots of notes on the wall. Books on the shelves, telling the story of the life in the Soviet Union, and the indispensable collection of stamps - everybody used to collect these back then! It's tempting to take a seat and see how our parents used to live, play "office", just like in the childhood, when the parents weren't home and there were lots of interesting papers, notepads and so on, and a chance to impersonate an office worker, wearing dad's jacket. Everything in this room is sure tailored for those traveling to the past.
The room is intended for beginners; offers simple tasks and no engineering ideas. The only thing required of you is to pay attention and be able to apply an item to another item. Try to concentrate on the details, remember everything you've seen and use your wits. No special knowledge or intrinsic solutions are required. An excellent quest for a victorious start of your track record in the realm of quests. Suitable for both adults and children/
