I think as an example of this genre, this was fantastically done, and I'm not surprised after our experience at the venue a few months ago. It felt carefully put together and so well presented. We didn't time ourselves although know we wasted a fair amount of time down a rabbit hole (entirely our own fault for not paying enough attention). Good variety of puzzles with excellent immersion given we were playing out of a box at home, ramped up to a fun finish. Website well executed and delighted to see the return of Jacob (a trainee GM who hosted one of the games when we hit The Escapement).  I can only imagine The Network will be setting the bar for this kind of game, and we felt the price represented fair value for what we got.

A quality game with high production value. We had great fun with some head scratching moments (there is an in-built help system to keep you going.) Would highly recommend. Looking forward to the next instalment!

Fantastic escape room style game in a box.  Amazing world building and attention to detail and with very clever aspects and surprises. Highly recommend!

Having previously played the Exit boxed games, our experience of these left something to be desired. When The Network arrived, however, we knew we were in for something completely different. Opened up the box and there was our personalised greeting letter, along with the instructions to start. Loved this experience from start to finish, especially as it has you going online as part of the gameplay as well. We had a couple of little hiccups with solving a couple of puzzles but that was just our own brains, the clues were there the entire time we just overlooked it! Well worth the cost, and excited to play future boxed games from The Escapement, as well as their new Broadstairs rooms!

Escapement have created an excellent, creative and challenging home escape game! It's a brilliant concept with excellent puzzles, that is very well executed. It's more expensive than other at home escape games, but it's well worth the price!

Lianne reviewed Pirates of Polaris by The Escapement:

Really enjoyable and well-themed room. I'm a sucker for pirate themed rooms, but it does feel like the team at Escapement have gone the extra mile with the decor and real and replica items in the room to make it feel incredibly authentic. In terms of difficulty, we were a team of one experienced three newbie players, and got out in around 45 minutes.

This game was absolutely outstanding, the most I have enjoyed a room for ages. Puzzles completely on theme and varied, great set dressing, hilarious GM (Adam) who played his role to perfection, so many clever touches in place. Intense theatrical ending. One puzzle looked slightly frustrating for a pair but there was an element of choice with what was needed for completion and we ended up bypassing it in the end. Totally deserving of its nomination in the TERPECAs.

Excellent room. Amazing set design, great puzzles with some nice physical elements. We had a new GM under supervision who did a great job giving us the occasional nudge when we had made some search fails. Very immersive with how the puzzles truly fit the experience. Found it a little hard to see some areas although I understand the GM can control the brightness if needed and it is not a dark room in a frustrating sense at all. Absolutely worth a visit.
