A serial killer is on the loose. Can you avoid becoming his next victim?
The police have nicknamed the killer ‘The Dollmaker’, due to the macabre way he displays his victims after their death, dressed in handmade garments reminiscent of another era, and clutching in their hand an exact replica doll of themselves.
You have read about him in the papers, even seen the items on the news, but it doesn’t really affect you right? Things like that only happen to other people, doesn’t it? You’re too busy concentrating on your night out to pay much attention anyway…
Fast forward 24 hours. You wake to find yourself and your friends in strange surroundings. The scene is reminiscent of a horror movie. Bloody handprints all over the walls, strange medical devices scattered around the room, and worst of all, The Dolls, So Many Dolls!! As fear begins to creep in you realise you are in the lair of ‘The Dollmaker’ himself. Who knows how long it will be until he returns? Have you got what it takes to escape his evil clutches before you become yet another showpiece in his sick and twisted collection?

We didn't gel with this room like we did with all of the others. It was still  very enjoyable, good signposting and flow. But for some reason it just didn't work for us. 

A little spooky and eerie rather than scary.

Another brilliant game at Project Breakout. Bit of a climb to the top of the mill to get to this one! Enjoyed the theme and the many many creepy dolls inside! Can’t wait to try their other rooms

Reviews by escape room review sites

In spite of the name and theme, The Dollmaker felt like a charming game to spend time in. The puzzles may have been standard tropes at times but they made good use of the theme and solid decoration to create an fun experience.
