If you’re going to build a horror game, doing so in an ancient crypt beneath a church is a pretty good start. Catacombs invites you to its location with an in-character email, where (after arriving on the dot, not before or after your designated time) you’re led down into the unsettling underground.
Few games have such an exquisite selection of fascinating antiquities. A genuine underground crypt is already atmospheric way beyond what most venues can hope to achieve, but they’ve taken that extr...
An immersive experience with fantastic theatre and the core puzzles are pretty good too. If you think you can cope with a scary escape room, then it comes highly recommended!
The catacombs are located under a real church in Amsterdam. To enter them you don’t just ring the bell, you have to know the right slogan. A very serious looking long-haired man opens the heavy door for us to enter. He gives the impression that he has no great hopes for a successful outcome of our expedition.
This is not a tourist attraction like the catacombs of Paris, but an escape game.To get you started, the confimation mail is sent with a small extract from the newspaper that makes your mouth water.We are investigators who discovered a newspaper article that immediately caught our attention...

And of course it takes place in a genuine underground crypt, an instantly memorable location very much enhanced by elaborate decorations and subtle effects. Translating such a game into a remote experience was always going to be a huge challenge, and I bought a ticket without hesitation even though I'...
Dark tunnels filled with skulls and demons? Count us in!

Once again, our avatar spoke and acted like a real person might, sometimes to frustrating effect. (Afterwards, my wife asked if I had gotten angry at one of my teammates. I explained I actually got upset at a character.) I had been warned about potential internet problems, but we only experienced a few glitches. Overall, not only did we have a great time, but we also reached all the winning conditions.
