As space cadets on the International Space Station you must race against time to ensure you fix the escape pod before it's too late. Houston received your distress call and has concluded that it was a meteor shower that struck the main ship a short time ago. The escape pod has also been damaged so you must first restore all of the systems before attempting an escape.
Cadets, you need to hurry! The next meteor shower is predicted to strike in an hour so there is no room for error!

A review of Can You Escape? Edinburgh's Operation Odyssey room, a game that was amazingly well designed with clear progress, parallel, logical puzzles, a pretty set and a fun ending.
An immersive and extremely fun game with a good variety of puzzles, broken neatly into different tasks that can be worked on simultaneously.
