There are ever more play at home escape products available these days, but Enigma Files was one of the very first. You'd be forgiven for having missed it though - it's only available direct from the website and from the physical venue Escape Game Brighton, which is operated by the same company.

A game with a long list of flaws that I somehow seemed to actually enjoy. Once you get over flimsy components, annoying red herrings, a dubious puzzle, insufficient puzzles, a disappointing story, off-theme puzzles and no real finale you'll find a distinct sense of achievement in having finished the game (most likely after having waited for an email response to clue requests...).
