Another awesome game from the Cryptology team! We had loads of fun in this game. There's some really cool tech involved that I've never seen before and some funny nods for the sci-fi geeks out there.
This was our first game here and starts in a standard setting where we all thought it was a but plain. However this leads you into a false sense (in a good way) and the finale is still probably one we talk about the most!
A re-working of their previous game (I never played the previous iteration) this room sees you applying for a job at the mysterious Cypherdyne corporation but its not the normal kind of interview. This is a fun room with a nice mix of puzzles that flowed nicely. It's also set in a normal office style environment and we played this at the height of summer so the windows were open and the sun was shining in, considering how often we play rooms in minimal light this made a nice change.
This room ended up not really grabbing me, having loved both of the other offerings at Cryptology. Somehow we just did not gel with it and ended up needing a fair bit of prompting, with a real struggle to understand one particular puzzle even when essentially being told the answer. Last puzzle is well placed to ramp up the tension but by that point we had all but given up. Office setting does feel a little dull although there are some touches later on that add to this a little. I understand other people have fared better so perhaps we were just not on our A game for this one, but of the available offerings at Dreamscape I would definitely pick the other 2 first.

Cypherdyne’s interview felt like what those ‘think outside the box’ questions Oxbridge candidates get challenged with in their interview processes… there was no obvious interview task, that was for us as the candidates to figure out as part of the process. We had to crack security codes, find hidden doorways and mess with the computer hardwiring to stand a chance of being hired by Cypherdyne.Thankfully we had our heads screwed on and managed this all!
