great hostingmagical

A lovely game, we really enjoyed!  Our host accidentally gave us a super-hard version and there was a LOT to do!  But he helped us out by being pro-active when it was necessary.  Beautiful set, satisfying puzzles, excellent hosting.

Great room.  Both of this company's rooms had the immersion broken by the avatar suddenly needing to pause and recharge an item (the camera? a phone?), causing us to lose some momentum about 2/3 through.

Strong modern room with some cool tech, a. good story, and some puzzles which got us thinking. Definitely recommend.

I'm a novice when it comes to escape rooms, this only being my 2nd ever.  However this was in a different league compared to the first one I did.

Mike was brilliant, He was very convincing and although he's obviously done the room hundreds of times before, he gave no clues away and was very believable and I felt like he was doing this room for the first time just as it was for our group.

Loved all the interactive bits, great special effects and I would highly recommend this room, we did normal mode and took us about an hour so it'd say this is very good value for money and a great idea for anyone wanted to try something different / pass some time during the Lockdowns.

Thanks for a fun evening, would love to see what other rooms you offer in the future πŸ™‚

Cheers from the UK

A really cool room with some very neat high tech puzzles and an immersive set.  We also had a few issues with connectivity, but the GM was very good about not counting it against our time.  There was one puzzle added to replace something that doesn't work virtually which was our least favourite.  But otherwise there were some very clever elements we haven't seen before, and a good integration of most of the puzzles with the story. Nice to have a bit of a different story arc--our first werewolf themed game!

(We had some tech glitches; hopefully they're uncommon.) A cute werewolf-themed room with a nice ending sequence. (I wish it was better lit, and had better connectivity.) The GM avatar was friendly and skilled.

The best was the host, a super fun guy called Max. It is a real room played remotely, it was fun and we had a nice experience, but some puzzles were not meant/adapted to be played online, so sometimes we were a bit lost. Thankfully for us, the host was very nice and helped us when required. I really appreciate the effort made by the Game Masters in this kind of new online  games as they have to react quickly to the orders the players give. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

This is a game that would be amazing in real life, even online it was really good fun. Some really clever technology and fun puzzles made this an enjoyable choice for Liz’s birthday game. This is a game that deserves to be played
Note to self: Beware of werewolves while traveling alone in the woods.

The room looked nice, it was spacious, and the puzzles were varied and logical. I'm sure it would've been fun to play "in real life", but the online play is sufficiently well done that I don't regret doing so remotely. You even get to choose a difficulty level, through the addition of a couple extra puzzles.
