My name is Dr. D. Fimblewood, and I am a researcher in European History and Religion. Rather recently, while working on an article regarding funeral practices in the Netherlands, I came across the strange case of the catacombs beneath the Posthoornkerk in Amsterdam. These catacombs have been sealed up for nearly a century, but no reason was ever given. When I asked the church for more information, I was told to leave the situation alone. I’m afraid, I simply cannot do that.
I have found many strange documents that describe a horrible series of “accidents” that eventually led to the catacombs and the church being closed down. I’m not sure what to believe anymore. I need to see the place for myself to see if there is any truth to what I have read. I will need a team of bright, focused minds to help guide me as I explore the catacombs in detail. I will go alone, but we will make contact online. You will receive more information once you have agreed to help. Do you have what it takes to help me solve the mystery behind the horrible events that took place there? Will you join online and guide me in the Amsterdam Catacombs?

Logic Locks' Catacombs is - in its original physical form - a masterpiece of a game, a slice of gothic horror that succeeds on multiple levels as immersive theatre, an escape room and a haunt maze. And of course it takes place in a genuine underground crypt, an instantly memorable location very much enhanced by elaborate decorations and subtle effects. Translating such a game into a remote experience was always going to be a huge challenge, and I bought a ticket without hesitation even though I'...

Once again, our avatar spoke and acted like a real person might, sometimes to frustrating effect. (Afterwards, my wife asked if I had gotten angry at one of my teammates. I explained I actually got upset at a character.) I had been warned about potential internet problems, but we only experienced a few glitches. Overall, not only did we have a great time, but we also reached all the winning conditions.

If you’re going to build a horror game, doing so in an ancient crypt beneath a church is a pretty good start. Catacombs invites you to its location with an in-character email, where (after arriving on the dot, not before or after your designated time) you’re led down into the unsettling underground.
Few games have such an exquisite selection of fascinating antiquities. A genuine underground crypt is already atmospheric way beyond what most venues can hope to achieve, but they’ve taken that extr...
An immersive experience with fantastic theatre and the core puzzles are pretty good too. If you think you can cope with a scary escape room, then it comes highly recommended!
The catacombs are located under a real church in Amsterdam. To enter them you don’t just ring the bell, you have to know the right slogan. A very serious looking long-haired man opens the heavy door for us to enter. He gives the impression that he has no great hopes for a successful outcome of our expedition.
This is not a tourist attraction like the catacombs of Paris, but an escape game.To get you started, the confimation mail is sent with a small extract from the newspaper that makes your mouth water.We are investigators who discovered a newspaper article that immediately caught our attention... So we meet this Sunday evening at 10 pm in front of a church: YES! A CHURCH! Too good isn't it?We ring the bell and a voice asks us to push the gate and to go into the courtyard in front of the church,...
