Disaster is afoot at ClueCapers! Professor Buff-Hoon Smith has taken a well earned holiday. But, without his expertise, our portals are becoming increasingly unstable!
A curious object owned by the professor seems to link to a new universe, but what is its significance?
Is there any way to prevent total portal dislocation?
Has the professor really travelled as far away as we think?
ClueCapers is urgently seeking technical assistants to stabilise our inter-dimensional portals. If you have expertise in thinking out of this world, observing the almost obvious or being bold with your logical leaps then we have a puzzling job for you! Contact us to travel to the most peculiar of museum galleries and maybe discover the nature of a very curious inheritance.
It’s weird, it’s wonderful and it’s definitely interactive – might it be art?

Given the names of ClueCapers' previous two games Winchintzy and Winchokey, I was surprised their third wasn't named A Curious Winheritance. Fortunately, it turns out to be set in the Winsonian Museum, thereby maintaining a good level of Winchester-themed punnage. As with ClueCapers' other games, the premise is that you're entering an unstable portal to a parallel universe, apparently similar to our own but with odd differences.
'Stepping through a portal' is a device various other escape room ...
A game that never really gelled with us, and left me disappointed. While that was definitely partly down to the game, I think it was also just a game that we personally didn't connect with. I think others will have a very different experience and I think it's well worth a trip if you're in the area.
