In between The Panic Room's various CSI-themed online games, My Dearest Emily sticks out rather. In stark contrast to the usual escape room themes of peril and world-saving, it's set in a lesser-known part of 19th Century US history, and tells a gentle but heart-felt love story in the form of a series of letters. This particular pair of lovers have a predilection for puzzles, which immediately gives a perfectly reasonable excuse for why each of the twelve letters solves to a hidden word or phras...
My Dearest Emily is easily my favourite of the online offerings from The Panic Room. With a lovely story, a bit of history, trickier puzzles, and some beautiful illustrations, what’s not to love?
My Dearest Emily really surprised me - it feels less like an escape room and more like a beautiful story told through the medium of letters.
Although we applaud Panic Rooms for trying something a little different it didn’t quite hit the spot for us. We prefer a game with a little more variety and a little more pace.

Its safe to say, I was hugely impressed with this experience and there was very little I could fault. A beautifully appointed, atmospheric experience, with well placed puzzles, great flow and very individual yet interesting theme.
