We solved the murder mystery with a perfect score of 100! Go team! The storyline was very well written and we liked the various characters that played into the game. There were alibis we had to go through and different character paths we had to take. The puzzles were non linear but because the avatar has to be at a certain location to discover clues, it was difficult to have him/her run back and forth to solve puzzles in an non linear way. I would suggest just sticking together as a team. This is what you'll experience when you play the real life experience at the Museum of Intrigue. We were glad to be able to enjoy an online translation of their experiences. If the inventory system could be improved to sync better with real time removal of items used and the camera quality and control could be clearer, this would a really solid game. We would probably categorize this more towards immersive theater or murder mystery than an escape game. It would be fun to see if they would be able to implement live actors or prerecorded videos to make this experience even more immersive. But for now, I wish you the best of luck with your team on solving this murder mystery!
