Reviews by escape room review sites

Howitz, as you might not guess from the name, is a game set in an abandoned, haunted toy shop. A past tragedy has left it cursed with supernatural forces which are reluctant to let you leave unscathed.
This game is gleefully, gloriously macabre, and left me a little worried for the mental state of its designers. It is most memorable for its atmosphere and sneaky surprises, but there's a more than acceptable escape game under the covers as well.
Of all the games I've played, I don't remember an...
A search heavy room that I was on the verge of disliking when it took a turn and started to become much more puzzly. Another room where different people on the same team can have very different experiences so think carefully about who you want to take on which challenges.
We head to Nottingham to play 3 escape rooms at Escapologic. First up, Howitz.
A very creepy room with scarily realistic theming and a very amusing ending.
