Civilians are going missing. Rumour has it that they are being experimented on at an abandoned soviet facility. Anyone who points the blame on the higher ups vanishes the next day, now you’re next up to disappear from society. Lucky for you though, your captor has other plans. Go along with it, and help them expose the authorities before you become just another disappearance.

Lovely set of puzzles and a great in theme host. Really enjoyed the use of colour within the sets to change the mood and how everything flowed so nicely

A really detailed briefing from our "kidnapper" and a very clever use of space. Brilliant puzzles all well in keeping, great styling and overall an amazing venue!

Right from the moment you open the front door Hounds shows just how serious an operation it is.  An amazing waiting room and check in area, great characterisation from the GM and a great room with lots of new puzzles and a brilliant variety of things to get your head around.  Found it a bit harder than Southern Discomfort but both were great.

This is a very good game, fun to play, some really good puzzles and excellent theme, the GM stays in character for the whole experience and are great fun too, chatting to them after they are really enthusiastic about escaping in general and that enthusiasm shows through in the quality of their games.

Preferred this room due to the puzzles and non linear nature. Great team work needed. Some funny moments too!

I like rooms like this, the ones where you enter and think "is this it?" and after a few minutes of gameplay you realise that no... its only just the start. I love that moment when you realise you're already well down that adventure rabbit hole.
Inventive puzzles and some nice theatrical moments, and this room has one of my fave puzzles of the year (which I can't tell you... cause , you know... spoilers!). 
I look forward to returning to play what else Hounds dream up.

As with their other room, theming and puzzles are on point and provides a really good flow from beginning to end.
