PowerPoint Game – Eternal Escape

New PowerPoint Heaven update!
Added a PowerPoint Game – Eternal Escape.

 

Eternal Escape is a PowerPoint graphic adventure game (an escape the room genre) well inspired by MOTAS. In this game, you are required to solve the puzzles and riddles provided and make use of objects you found to escape from locked rooms. Story will continue to progress as the level increases. More rooms and levels were be added from time to time.

Storyline: Your role as a young and intelligent scientist, who has been spending years researching on perfect eternity formula. One day, you have been kidnapped by some mysterious guys. When you are awake, you found yourself trapped in a room. You tried escaping. Not knowing the reason of the kidnapping, you soon realize that ransom is not what they want…

PowerPoint Heaven Discussion Board

I have started a PowerPoint Heaven Discussion Board today. The purpose for this board is to allow sharing and discussion on PowerPoint knowledge, tips and tricks. On top of that, if you have any PowerPoint games, portfolio or artworks to showcase, you can share it there too. The board is currently on its beta testing stage as I still need to test the response and other related stuff. If everything goes fine, it should sucessfully replace the current guestbook feature on PowerPoint Heaven. If you have anything to share, start registering on the board now!
