A new 3D mobile puzzler from the creators of The Room, The House of Da Vinci tasks players to work their way through various layers of complex puzzles in a bid to uncover the mystery of Leonardo’s disappearance. Available from IOS now, the game seeks to combine people’s love of history with a way to train the brain.
Placing you in the role of the great Da Vinci’s assistant, The House of Da Vinci takes place in an ambitiously immersive take on 1506 Italy but it isn’t long before you notice that something’s awry when your master is nowhere to be seen. Setting you on a path of puzzle-untangling, riddle-solving, and mechanism-cracking, you are Da Vinci’s only hope to discover the truth and reveal the central mystery of his disappearance.
Each of the The House of Da Vinci’s many puzzles, contraptions, and inventions are honourably brought to life using full 3D graphics with the hope of immersing players as much as possible within its historically detailed world. There’s no knowing what Da Vinci has in store for you when brushing up against his next Rube Goldberg machine-esque puzzle, but it’s a challenge you’ll need to rise to if you’re to reveal the truth behind his vanishing. Was he targeted by the church? Is he seeking rightful refuge from assassins? Or is there something much larger at play?
All the game’s music, architecture, and ambience each take inspiration from actual Da Vinci concepts, manuscripts and inventions in the hope of faithfully evoking the world of 16th century Italy. And such faithful re-creations aim to help round out The House of Da Vinci’s core puzzle-solving experience, whether you find yourself uncovering lock boxes, solving brain twisters, or just generally exploring the workshop.
So if you’re brave enough to solve the secret of Leonardo’s disappearance, give The House of Da Vinci a try today on iOS or maintain a watchful eye for a future PC, Mac, and Android release.
