We received some documents from a friend, who was researching the history of the house he just bought. The history is pretty disturbing. People who lived in it previously were convinced the house was haunted.
The strangest thing is, that as soon as these people tried to combat whatever it is that lives in the house, they soon start to exhibit some erratic behavior and slowly lose their mind. Three previous owners committed suicide within a month from the first time they talked to someone about the "spirits" that possess the house. Our friend got close, closer than anyone, to the secret of the house. He is sure that it's not about the house itself, but… a doll. A creepy old doll, that was left in the attic. It remained in the house for a century, and our friend was sure, that it is the source of misfortune for anyone living in the house.
Our friend knew something can go terribly wrong during his investigation, so he sent out copies of his research in case something happens to him. Today he fell out the window on the second floor of the house. He's alive, but barely. Who knows, what awaits him when he wakes up if the curse is not lifted from the house.
Our goal is to follow the research friend did, to find out the names of the demons possessing the doll and exorcise them forever...

Note that some pages are intended to be c...

 The Exorcism of Isabelle was our first foray into the world of The Panic Room’s puzzle book/print and play options, and it was not a disappointment. With some mechanics that were vaguely reminiscent of the games in the Exit the Game series, and satisfying puzzles, The Exorcism of Isabelle could be a perfect choice for a game night

I had goosebumps before even starting the game. The creepy drawings and old photographs definitely added an eerie vibe to the story line. Every time when we entered a demon's name into the portal, the sound would make me jump.
