In an alternate time-line, the world is divided between those who have and those who have not. Utopia and Dystopia share a story and a past, separate yet intertwined, where perhaps not all is as it seems.
For those in Utopia, life is good and technologically advanced. Every need is catered for. Every wish fulfilled. Overseen by their benevolent government, the Utopians are protected from the outside dystopian world and the disease-ridden creatures that roam there.
As they strive to maintain perfect balance and harmony, will you be able to pass the selection process and begin your new Utopian life?

The production value in this game is superb. We played it as a 2 and it worked really well. I also loved the ending :-).

We did Dystopia followed by Utopia, such an unique idea to go from one to the next, we thoroughly recommend you doing it like this.
The set design in this game is amazing!

The other half of the game from Dystopia (although both can be played stand alone).  This is very different and involves a lot of high tech puzzles and games as you try and find the way to escape.  Its easy to overthink some puzzles, as the GM told us afterwards, we tore our way through the hard puzzles and completely over thought the easier ones.  I'd say this is slightly harder than Dystopia as the pressure can build at one stage but would also be good for larger groups.

Utopia is the sister game to Dystopia, its complement and its inverse. Where Dystopia’s decor is urban decay, Utopia is all sleekly gleaming computer panels; where Dystopia's puzzles tend more to the physical, Utopia's use touch-panels and screens and electronics.
Your mission is to pass the tests that will allow you entrance to the elite enclosed community of Utopia - though your motives for doing so may depend on whether you've just emerged from Dystopia or not. The over-arching plot advance...
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.
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live a world like in the movie ‘Divergent’, then you need to play both Utopia and Dystopia, back-to-back.
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 another good game, but played as a sequel to Dystopia it adds a whole other layer to the development of the story.

A challenging logical room that requires a lot of mental input but very enjoyable.
