hi-techoriginalgreat hostingquite difficult

This game isn't quite like any of the other remote games we've played (having done around 60).  It starts with a first set of puzzles that are played entirely through a webpage, and then moves through four different physical rooms, with a couple of puzzles in each.  There is also a puzzle played through the web interface that requires co-operation by the various members on the team.  So a real Swiss smorgasbord of different experiences!

I found the  first puzzle a bit frustrating (although one of my other team members really liked it), and we took way too much time on it.  But the rest of the game worked really well, and the GM (who was amazingly the only person running the game) did a wonderful job of keeping things flowing along and juggling all the different roles she had to play.

Overall a very imaginatively designed experience.  Recommended!

A 90 minute adventure that seamlessly blends a number of Trapgames exisiting rooms into one epic adventure where you travel the globe to retrieve a number of mythical rocks to defend the earth against an alien invasion.... the only problem is that your field agent is currently in prison and you cant get in contact with them!

The game starts with your team having to think on their feet and come up with the solution of getting in contact with your agent and then breaking them out of the cell they're in.  This gives you a great chance to get aquainted with the inventory system and get your team flexing their mental muscles.

From then on in its a more traditional avatar escape room, but with the extra bonus of some well done transitional moments and I've got to make special mention of one lovely co-operative puzzle which the whole team plays.

This may not be around for too much longer, as it uses so much of their venue that when they reopen it may ot be possible, so play it soon!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Its been almost a full year since we started our remote/avatar room adventures and in all that time we’ve never played a remote room in Switzerland. So we were excited to hear that Trapgame had produced a brand new adventure just for remote play called Agency 51, and what made us even more excited to play was that it’s a 90 minute game.
Between the digital platform, prerecorded videos and traveling through 4 different physical escape sets, you can tell there has been a lot of hard work that's been put into the design of this game. Our agent did a great job with how quickly she was able to transition from prerecorded to the physical spaces. She's also in character the entire time. We had great time traveling with her in her spaceship. She was such a good sport as we didn't really let her take a breather and just kept going one after another with the destinations. If you love more adventure and less puzzling, this is the game for you. You probably haven't experienced any online game like this one before.
