Joe Slack from Crazy Like a Box Games joins us to talk about their newest crowdfunding project Mayan Curse!
Explore the secret passage to the ancient temple, collect the most knowledge, and escape before you’re trapped forever!
As you traverse deeper, you’ll discover stelae (Mayan monuments) that increase your knowledge (which is what you need to win). But the greatest secret waits for you at the very top of the temple—that is, if you can reach it and get back to the entrance in time. If all 3 of the temple’s boulders reach the entrance before you return, you’ll be sealed inside forever, and none of your knowledge will matter!
Check out the campaign!
