About

Lost in the Shuffle is an at-home puzzle game where you search and solve your way through 53 puzzles jam-packed into a custom deck of playing cards. While the deck of cards looks lovely, this is first and foremost a puzzle game. Answers are submitted on the game's website in order to progress. The website keeps track of player progress as well as delivers a quirky and humorous narrative in the form of unlockable videos. The story involves the game's designer, Spencer Beebe, claiming that completing the game will turn the player into, "officially, legally, a genius." As the player's progress, Spencer's claims become more far-fetched and he's clearly up to something!
