Very interesting game - as others have mentioned, the first half just flies by and the second involves a bit more head-scratching. The one thing that lets this room down is a physical puzzle that is irritatingly difficult to complete due to flawed tech. We were offered to bypass this element for a penalty, but I'm too stubborn for that and we escaped with just 4.5 minutes to spare! Would be 1000% better if the physical puzzle was just slightly simplified and the tech worked.

Surprisingly, we've not played an entirely-themed conspiracy game before and these covers several of those bases. Good mix of search/logic/skill - clear flow in the first half, a couple of mental/search blocks for us later in the game caused a little frustration on our part, but this was more on our own abilities rather than the game - would recommend if in the area, owner happy to spend time chatting about the game design/games generally at the end also. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

If I had to pick a game at Want to Escape that was the most โ€œtraditionalโ€ in the style of escape rooms, it would be Conspiracist, and I loved it because of it.
I wasnโ€™t prepared for just how good this room turned out to be. Youโ€™re in the study of your friend, the missing Conspiracy Theorist, and you have to retrieve the mystical egg (donโ€™t laugh, itโ€™s a very nice egg)...
