For an online escape room, I have high expectations having done over 150 real escape rooms. This was a great experience, my partner and I loved the game, it had the genuine feel of an escape room and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend
Plays like a cross between an escape room and a point-and-click adventure videogame, yet somehow fails to capture the delight of either. Playing online via a webbrowser means your team all share the same synchronised view of the game and you can see where your teammates are clicking, but there's a delay in the response to every input making the game feels slow and laggy. Combined with the pre-rendered, static graphics leads to the feeling of playing a "Myst"-clone from the 1990s, yet without the charm or innovation.
The puzzle content itself is solid enough, but rather predictable - several "count the objects" puzzles, some ciphers etc. and the story is fine, but not really engaging.
So while the game is perfectly functional - we encountered no game-breaking bugs or mistakes - it simply failed to excite or delight.
We played this in multi-player mode and it worked really well. A classic point and click adventure with escape room-esque puzzles. Great value for money.
It is a great online game. Loved the story and riddles. Please make more!
So far amongst the best online games I've played during lockdown!
Reviews by escape room review sites
We very much enjoyed this game and came away with the same type of buzz that we get when we complete a physical escape room. We were truly immersed in the story and were saddened when we reached the end. For now, we’ll just have to wait for the sequel
