ENTRY POINT

With three episodes, here’s where to start with the trilogy

-

Plymouth Point and The Mermaid’s Tongue are designed to stand alone; The Kindling Hour opens with a ‘previously on’ recap. Still, we’d advise playing them in the order of release – not only to preserve the twists and turns of the story, but to see how Swamp Motel’s ambitions have grown with time. The first instalment is most reliant on pre-existing websites, giving it a more grounded feel. Increasing­ly, though, the series layers in more bespoke technology and non-diegetic puzzles, and there’s a change of tone as it ramps up towards the trilogy’s finale, which Jones refers to as “a bit more Hollywood.”
