So I'd seen a lot of negative reviews for this room, I had an amazing time in Ready Mayor One and was a little worried that might get tarnished with this. Even this weekend I was seeing negative reviews but I had as good a time as RM1. Speaking to the owner afterwards, he's taken the comments on board and changed puzzles around so the flow is a lot better and there is a sense of urgency. I enjoyed this nearly as much as RM1 and if you'd been dithering about playing, don't, I had a great time!
Not quite up to the standard of Ready Mayor One, this game still had plenty of highlights. We found it a bit more stop-start and while that might have just been a bad day, it felt more like the puzzle flow was a little more convoluted and the conversion to an online game hadn't worked quite as smoothly.
Puzzles were good and kept us occupied for most of the time. Set had some rough edges again but also a really charming centrepiece and the GM added a nice vibe to the game.
There's the opportunity for a cool finale to lead on to the next experience but it wasn't as smooth as it would have ideally been and felt like an add on rather than a natural transition. Possibly an artefact of transferring to an online experience?
Well worth playing though!
A fun story, a great GM and fun puzzles. The set's pretty although has some rough edges and the use of searching felt a little frustrating at times for an online game. Impressively, there are some codes that you solve remotely which I felt was a nice touch.
The GM as the Mayor of the town adds something a little bit different to this game so I'd highly recommend you get into the theme if you head along - it's not necessary but it will add to the experience.
Of all the virtual rooms I've played, this is the closest I've come to having the escape room 'experience'. Mayor 'Rob' is a great Avatar and there's a great mix of puzzles. I won't spoil what makes the interaction so good but this is unmissable!
Is a fine room but there is a bit too much backstory and plot elements revealed that aren't really part of the puzzle-solving, making it a lot more confusing to figure out what to look at and what to ignore. Lacks the simplicity of Ready Mayor One.
This game worked super well in the online format, probably better
than if we had played it in real life. The gamemaster was fun and helped
us all get settled. The inventory system allowed us to all look at
different things concurrently even though the camera was only pointing
one way. We had lots of fun!
This game has a very slick inventory interface that improvement my enjoyment of the game in no small measure. Mayor Rob is also a ton of fun to interact with. It was so easy to fall in love with this game!
This was our second remote play room. The level of interaction was higher than the other remote room which was a very nice feature. This also acted as an inventory system. Ideally, I would have done this on a dual monitor system to allow you to fully view and interact with the items and still view the room. This allowed you do participate in more than just telling the GM what to do. GM was good and kept things light and fun.
