Welcome to Madmen and Heroes!


The Resystance and The CRAAAFT are mystery games filled with intriguing puzzles and ciphers that will reveal a fascinating story to you as you solve the challenges within. All you need to play the game is an internet connection and the items in your package. This is like an escape room that you play without having to go anywhere.

To play the game, just follow these steps:

1.  There is an inventory card included with the game which will tell you everything that should be included for that story. Once you verify that you have everything you need, start by reading the welcome letter. This will outline the story and give you any context you need.

2. Next the fun begins – just read everything in the box and see if there is anything that jumps out at you. Is there a puzzle you can solve? Do pieces seem to go together? Just see what is in there and where it leads you!

3. If you have looked at everything and are not sure what comes next, don’t worry! There is a hints and solutions webpage for every single story. Look on the back of the inventory card and you will see the link to get the hints for the story you are working on. Just go there and you will see the page organized by puzzle. You can click on a series of hints that will nudge you in the right direction. If the hints don’t help enough, you can also click on the “How to solve it” button that will walk you through how each puzzle works and what you need to do to figure it out. Finally, each puzzle has a “Solution” button that will give you the answer to the individual puzzles so you never get stuck.

4. If any of the puzzles seem confusing, feel free to email us at [email protected] and we will answer any questions you have!
