Had a blast playing this room! Great team of people behind the scenes putting it all together! Would play another of their games in the future!
This game has all the makings of a wonderful experience. The narrative is novel, the set is immersive, and there is a good assortment of puzzles. Through particularly clever integration of cut scenes, it seemed like there was a whole cast of actors involved. Like the Pursuit of the Assassin Artist and Miss Jezebel this game incorporated some neat "out of Zoom/Telescape" elements. I am confident that most fans of those games will really like this one.
Unfortunately it also included my very least favourite online escape room trope--the naive or idiot avatar. Or, in this case, the cowardly avatar. Everything we asked the avatar to do was questioned and pushed back against because of the character that he was playing. It was tremendously frustrating! I simply do not have the patience to have the "no really go through the freaking door" conversation that many times. I don't know if the actor was playing it up in particular because we were moving through the game quickly. But I would personally have preferred to spend less time on the experience, but not be super frustrated!
So if you are a more patient person than I, and like the theatrical style of escape rooms, you'll probably think this room is amazing. But if you don't enjoy wanting to kick your avatar in the bum 20 times in an hour, perhaps this one is not for you!
Joyful, silly, ridiculous. A few moments where it was difficult to understand the dialogue, but overall strong.
Really fun with great actors!
Absolutely brilliant, and a real must play. 66minuten have seamlessly blended immersive theatre and roleplay into the escape room setting and added a few of their own unique flourishes, and some very German humour, to bring you a wild and wacky adventure. You're adventure is with an ASF agent who really, really needs all the help they can get, and you're inducted into the taskforce to help.
I loved that the game throws you straight into the action, and then just when you think you know where you're heading you're thrown a quirky curveball and you're left grinning and laughing. The attention to detail enhances gameplay too, as each item is added to the inventory then listen, you'll be rewarded with some audio gems!
Theres a great mix of puzzles with the realy unique humour of 66minutes running right through them, we didn't experience and logic leaps and everything was signposted well and fitted the plot well.
Our whole team had a ball playing Showdown, its one of those games where I found myself clapping with delight at more than one point in the game and giving a round of applause to the entire cast at the end. In over 400 virtual rooms this one has gone straight into my top 3.
Go... GO PLAY IT NOW!!!
Phenomenal combination of story, theming, avatar interaction with excellent video and audio throughout. Highly recommended.

Vorgeschichte: Was ist die Anti-Schlabbeck-Force (ASF)?Im August 1988 wurde die 16-jährige Madita im Neuwieder Einkaufzentrum Schlemmerkuppel tot aufgefunden. Maditas Bruder Anton war sich damals schon sicher, dass deren eigener Bruder, Schlachter Franz-Josef Schlabbeck, die Schwester auf dem Gewissen hat. Seit damals gibt es an jedem 8. August ein Todesopfer. Mit seinen besten Freunden gründete Anton die Anti-Schlabbeck-Force. Ziel der ASF war und ist es, Schlabbeck als Mörder von Madita und allen weiteren Opfern zu überführen.
