Four special gemstones were stolen from Malta’s National Museum in the late 1800s.
The prime suspect is the Degabriele family.
Plenty of explorers have tried researching the Degabriele’s abandoned castle before but nobody ever emerged alive.
It appears that the soul of Mr. Degabriele still surveilles the castle.
Rumour has it that there is no way to escape unless the 4 gems are retrieved.
You only have 60 minutes. Otherwise, you might end up like the previous explorers…

Good set. Lots of exploration and puzzles to solve. All the puzzles are logical and make sense. There are some physical tasks which make me wish that I was there in person.

A very cool and imaginatively designed set that we're sorry we didn't get to experience in person!  I have ranked this one "quite difficult" even though we had lots of time left because it was one of those rooms that had more elements than you are expecting.  Make sure you watch your time and take good notes!  A very friendly and pleasant GM.  All in all, it made us wish we could go to Malta!

Fun room with good puzzles.  Lots of physical activity required, but our avatar kept up with all while keeping in character.

This is a wonderful space for an escape room, lots to explore and discover, its one of those rooms that you really want to play in person, as theres a decent amount of physicality to the game and lots to explore. The camerawork is great, we had no problems with focus or seasickness, and the details can be seen and text can be read. Theres also a telescape inventory for some puzzles, but it is minimally used (no playing the inventory here!) as you really don't want to move away from searching solving in the room.

Our Avatar was great, he was engaging and funny and kept us on track with some subtle camerawork . The gameplay is very good, with a couple of nice straightforward puzzles to get to into the game and then it builds from there.
Fabulous room to play an well worth booking, it you liked the pub in Malta, then you're going to love this one!!!   

Reviews by escape room review sites

We receive a video call from our friend who is in Malta and has set his mind on finding the four gems that were stolen from the national museum there at the end of the 19th century. Now he finds himself in front of the abandoned castle of the Degabriele family, who are considered the main suspects, and asks us to support him in this daring mission, in which many amateur detectives and curious people have already lost their lives.
