3 part digital ER game with mixture of online, paper and computer game elements. One puzzle which has been by far my favourite experience of online gaming in lockdown (along the lines of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes) which evoked the opposite emotion of frustration in my other half. Some parts felt a little drawn out/repetitive but overall, cannot deny the fantastic value you get for £10 with this game. Didn't time ourselves across the 3 parts - around the 3 hour mark though.
Best online escape room we've done yet. Really challenging but great fun.
Best escape room we've done since the lockdown for sure. Kudos to the creators of the game for coming up with such cool puzzles and mechanics!
Superb game. Best one we have played online. Very slick. Please build some more!!!
One of the best online puzzle games I've every played, some parts are really clever, some parts bloody difficult but overall such a great sense of achievement when you finish. Highly recommend everyone to give it a try, a must-play for less than a tenner and will take you a good 3-4 hours if not more.

Half the world is sheltering indoors from a pandemic sweeping the globe - not the plot of an escape game but the sad reality we find ourselves in. With physical escape rooms off limits, many companies are creating games which can be played over the internet in some form. The Insiders is one of the first such games, though frankly the quantity of content looks like it was created over a considerably longer period. A disclaimer: the game's creators are good friends of mine, though naturally this r...
"Insiders" was by far one of our favorite digital escape game that we've played so far (we've done about 50 now). This game incorporated pretty much everything we've seen in terms of types of puzzles.
The first two-thirds of this game were a lot of fun and did a great job of making me feel like a clever hacker, trying to penetrate a corporate website, while coordinating with my person on the inside. However, the third part of the game felt like hitting a brick wall.
Overall, The Insiders is something unique and complex. Creating a new sub section of play at home escape room games, it contained everything you would need to recreate a real life escape room virtually. This is extremely hard to achieve with not being in a themed room as such however, if you take the heavily detailed storyline, the complex, clever puzzles and the use of technology combined, it creates what we have just experienced.
