Space-themed games aren't our normal top choice but we really enjoyed First Contact; it's a well-trodden theme that's been approached from a different angle here and it was lovely to see something a bit different.
There are some common spaceship tropes but also some quirky elements that added to the nice variety of puzzles.
Hosting was particularly good - our GMs were really friendly and suggested a lovely cafe for us for our wait between games.
Great setting. Very tech heavy which is not a particular fan of but I enjoyed the room. After playing Cryptology in Nottingham I had high expectations for this venue, but I just didn’t get that with the Sheffield Branch….
This room was great and I can see how players love it, I just didn’t click with the room. It didn’t flow well for me. There’s much better rooms within the same “genre”
We just didnt gel with this game, took a really long time for us to click with it. Could be that we were a two and there was a looooot to do. Luckily the host gave us an extra three mins to finish.
A very hi-tech game that is very different to all the escape rooms we have done before. They had a great use of video segments to enhance the story.
Because it was a sci-fi game it made great use of the technology in there but not so much that it feels distracting from the main mission. There are some great shoutouts to sci-fi films and series! It was our fave game of the day
We played this when it first opened and I believe it has been tweaked since then. There were definitely some teething issues with technology not working and some illogical puzzles. It was an ok game but not up to Cryptology’s usual standard.

The game that introduced us to Cryptology- and what a game it was! We played this with our friends and regular escape companions, Tasha and Rach, and all four of us LOVED it! There was simply so much to do! In this game, you are tasked with boarding the TRSS Caelus to find out what happened to the crew of the spaceship orbiting Mars whose communication has ceased…
