Beyond the great dome of Utopia lies a desolate wasteland. Disease has ravaged the population, resources are scarce and, for those still managing to survive, life is hard.
Yet, long condemned to the darkness, the Dystopians have become resilient and determined. No longer will they accept their fate quietly and no longer will the advancements of Utopia benefit only the few.
Besides, they've made some advancements of their own and Utopia might just need them more than they realise.

Great concept and good game! Unfortunately for us there was just 1 puzzle we just couldn’t work our heads around we knew exactly what we had to do just one of those things you can either see or you can’t! Apart from that good game

Reviews by escape room review sites

Arriving at Make Your Escape for our booking, we were welcomed in by a sardonic overall-wearing janitor from a dystopian future. It’s always a nice touch when a game’s host is in character from the outset, and he maintained the persona throughout the welcome and briefing. While it works perfectly well as a stand-alone game, Dystopia is best played in conjunction with its sister room Utopia as a two hour double header, and any review of one must need make extensive reference to the other.

In the...

A pair of games that were both enjoyable experiences, but which really came into their own when played back to back. Break out of Dystopia before discovering the truth behind the perfect society of Utopia.
Will you choose to play Dystopia as a standalone game, in succession with it’s brighter and more futuristic sibling, or pit yourself against an opposing Utopian team? The choice is yours, but whichever you choose, you’re in for a treat.
Utopia and Dystopia are two different games, but we’re covering them in the same article. I’m not sure that’s wise, because, they’re very, very different. But they are connected: both figuratively and literally. Figuratively, they share the same universe and form two parts of the same story. Literally, you can play both games together and certain things in one can game can influence the other, turning it in to a competitive event. I also believe it’s possible to play both games back-to-back, coming right out of one and into another, but that’s somewhat dependent on there not being anyone in the other game!
We played Dystopia and Utopia back-to-back. Alone this is a good game, but set in the context as a detailed backstory to Utopia it’s a well themed room with great storytelling.
