The Wexell Fellowship, a highly powerful organisation in Victorian England, has been funding the research of Dr Henry Jekyll. Jekyll has successfully created a formula to separate the good and evil parts of a personality, but has his research gone too far? Recently it seems that Jekyll has not been himself… The Wexell Fellowship cordially invites your team of expert investigators to seek out the truth and help Jekyll complete his assignment. However, will you find more than you bargain for as you’re ushered into Jekyll’s home? After all, appearances can be deceiving…
Great for escapers that want a little more immersive story and twists from their rooms, and would rather not be physically restrained. Suitable for first time escapers.

I will say the theming isn't total (the odd exposed camera wire) but what follows is a great series of puzzles that flow from one to another.  The room also starts with a nice bit of theatre (always a great way to win me over) and this continues with a series of pre-recorded video messages at key moments.  Ideal for beginners or a team of 2.

We enter Dr Jekyll's home to investigate his research on separating the good and evil sides of a personality to see if he's gone too far.
The ‘briefing’ is conducted by video within the game; not a unique idea but entertainingly and immersively done, cleverly setting up the story, the game start and the clue system in one go.
