May 30, 2016, Moscow. — NIKITA ONLINE company announces the launch of an update to one of its flagship products — extremely suspenseful game «The Panic Room: House of Secrets». Now the fans of the project will get new tests from the Puppeteer — «Poisoned Puppet» and «Radio Tower».
Like their companions that are already present in the game, these characters will inhabit a lush Victorian-style mansion, which walls are imbued with dark secrets and blood-chilling puzzles. The new update is aimed at players who have reached a certain level: the «Poisoned puppet» is starting at level 25, and the «Radio Tower» — at the 15th level. Mechanics of the update are based on the following principles:

1) At some point, a chain of quests runs, which brings the player to the house plan, where the figure appears on the front porch;
2) Next, the player is invited to choose from creating his own event or joining friends in existing ones;
3) When the user launches the event or joins an existing event, in front of him appears a new window with a challenge and an opportunity to use 5 items (from weaker to stronger ones);
4) Depending on what item the player uses, he either treats («Poisoned puppet») or builds («Radio Tower»);
5) In addition to the player, others can also take part in this event. The players are cooperating, their success depends on the overall impact;
6) A certain time is given for the event;
7) Once the players have the needed amount of points or ran out of time — the battle ends. There starts a calculation of how effective were the participants, and the reward is distributed among them;
8) When the players win or lose, they can re-run the event.

With the help of «Poisoned puppet» game fans have an opportunity to gather collections and win prizes, as well as to learn a new story about a reporter. «Radio Tower» offers the chance to compete in the construction of the tower and, depending on the results, get a reward: the more the user has made in the construction — the higher he is in the rankings and, accordingly, the more valuable the final bonus is.
