Pursuit of Assassin Artist has a very funny and new, well thought out game concept (we didn’t have one like this before) for a live video escape game. It reminded me a bit of the board game T.I.M.E. Stories. Our mission contains two points that must be fulfilled to bring the mission to a successful conclusion. But what I also found to be a pretty cool idea, beyond that there is the possibility to gain certain achievements during the game.
This was definitely easily one of our favorite remote escape experiences we've played so far. The story line, set design, avatars and entertainment level were everything we would want to experience sitting at the comfort of our homes. After playing so many remote escape rooms, we realized that we would still rather play at a physical location if the rooms were heavily concentrated on locks, visual effects, and physical puzzles. It's rooms like these that keep us engaged the entire 90 minutes since it incorporates not only puzzles but also immersive theater. This makes connecting with us emotionally much easier since we are being secretly pulled into playing that character without even knowing it. We hope to see more of these types of remote escape experiences come to market! Oh and if you have extra time definitely find all the achievement awards you can unlock in the room! They were like Easter eggs. We had a lot fun "hunting" them.
Now, here's something a bit odd about this game: it's got a special "gimmick", and apparently reviewers don't actually agree as to whether or not the gimmick should be a spoiler or not! [...] Here's the deal I propose: go and book this game. It's been my no-contest, hands-down favorite remote game thus far, in part thanks to the gimmick, but also because it's a decent game overall. If that statement isn't enough [...]
