Amazing game - suprising unexpected steps and enjoyable well thought-thorugh puzzles and impressively working tech. None of the puzzles are uniriginal or basic, most of them we have not seen anywhere else. The music could be a bit louder and more immersive to make it more atmospheric.
Superb game - lots of original puzzles - couple verged on illogical but we got there in the end. Really well paced as well.
As with all Eacape Plan games the theming is superb (and this one is a little jollier than their other games)- all of the puzzles made sense and were in keeping with the theme. A fair few really lovely handmade tactile elements/ puzzles / boxes that elevate the game to be extremely impressive.

For a game set during World War II… It’s surprisingly light hearted and funny! But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Roll Out the Barrel isn’t technically set during World War II. It’s set the day after. Your mission? Throw the best party for the troops you possibly can. Everyone knows the best parties involve obscene amounts of booze which is why three intrepid troops and myself just broke into our officer’s top secret bar cabin to steal all their barrels. It’s party time!!
