|Section of the riddle clock created by Devin Montgomery|
The Midnight Clock, a fully functioning clock marking 24 hours and the approximate times of sunrise, midday, sunset, and midnight, holds a riddle that teases you to discover and move various keys, in a particular order and at a particular time of day or night, in order to finally discover a hidden compartment. The clock is made for a treasure of your choosing to be hidden inside, the example given being a book.
The creator, Devin Montgomery, says:
“Fiction is filled with hidden doorways, destinations, and treasures--think of Tolkein’s secret door to Durin, Rawling’s platform 9 3/4, or Lewis’s wardrobe--but we rarely find them in real life. The Midnight Clock changes that.”
