Decent attempt at an ARG-esque puzzle experience, hindered by poor narrative development and some immersion-breaking moments that could have benefited from more sandboxed web interactions. The game is schedule with a live host, which wasn't really utilized at all and seemed highly unwarranted. A few cool elements but lots of room for improvement.

A reasonable ARG-ish experience (mostly hunting through social media, email and fictional Web sites). Nice production values including good video content; nothing too special puzzle-wise or plot-wise.

Brilliant game which blends video, the internet and a live host for support. The story rips along at pace and gets murkier by the minute. Excellent peripheral infomation along the way, so larger teams have additional information if they want but it doesn't hold back the smaller teams. We played as a 2 and didn't share the screen and this worked very well. 

Great value and disturbingly believeablt too. A must play.

Played: 7/1 Team size: 3 Outcome: Successful escape!

Less of an escape room and more like a mini-ARG that is linear and can be completed in an hour by a small team.  Only a little bit suspension of disbelief is needed to make you think that you're tracking real people's histories on real websites and finding a real conspiracy.  Definitely make sure that you test Zoom screensharing and audiosharing before you begin; it's a lot more fun if everyone's mostly working off the same screen.

This game had twists and turns aplenty! Play Plymouth Point without knowing what to expect, and an open mind and you are in for a good time. This isn’t your typical online game, this is like being in your own immersive online thriller movie!

Overall, a fun and exciting experience with just enough of a dash of drama to keep us all excited from start to finish. If you’ve ever wanted to take centre stage in a digital mystery, this will be right up your street. But be careful… Somebody’s watching you!

Overall, Plymouth Point had us on the edge of our seats throughout the 75 minute experience. Thankfully managing to complete the goal which was to find Ivy, with 10 minutes to spare! This meaning it took us around 65 minutes, solving some fantastic puzzles in genius ways. The highlight of Plymouth Point is the story, it has you gripped in from the very beginning to the last moment of the experience, which is very impressive virtually.
