Your eyes begin to focus through the dull light. The croak and groan of the Russian cargo ship, The Demeter, makes you feel uneasy. You sense that a terrible event has occurred - the crew are missing, presumed dead. Only the body of the Captain is later recovered, found horrifically bound to the helm of the vessel.
You have been called upon by Professor Abraham Van Helsing, the noted Dutch Metaphysician and his former student, Dr. John Seward who's patient, the aristocrat - Lucy Westenra, is presenting a series of bizarre symptoms. She seems to be drawn under the power of an unknown force which yolks her strength, day by day. What is causing her decline and could it be in some way connected to the eery appearance of the deserted ship upon Whitby's shore? Only you can find the truth!

A true rival for Curio in Nottingham, Cave Escape is a fantastic game that takes you on a journey through the underground world of Nottingham.
Carfax is a great room and it excelled in room design. Surrounded by the natural stone walls of the cave, the rest of the set was used to enhance this already impressive setting
This gameโ€™s unique selling point is that itโ€™s set in a cave โ€“ but thatโ€™s not why itโ€™s a fantastic game. Carfax has a wonderfully immersive and minimalist set that beautifully unveils the games story. A brilliant game.

A unique setting in the caves of Nottingham backed up by a well formed story full of adventure

Carfax is a Dracula themed adventure which takes inspiration from the 1992 Francis Ford Coppola film.

You have been sent by Professor Van Helsing to unearth the reason for Lady Westenraโ€™s bizarre symptoms and release her from whatever evil has her in its grasp.
