Creepy but not jump scary, this room was just what we needed on a Friday evening after a long week. This room stands out to us - not for the puzzles which were pretty standard but for the story and how it was told. Creepy did also not rule out a bit of humour.

I wouldn't call the decor pretty but we did appreciate that this was not a room you shopped for in IKEA. The puzzles did not stand out as special, but what was special was the good signposting and ease of use. Also we liked that one puzzle did effect the 360 image of the room, so that you knew it was solved. 

In the beginning we had to get used to the many many videos that introduced the room to us, but it was worth it. Not only did we get a great introduction to the story, we felt very involved with the mission - almost too involved. A bit of sweat did appear on our forehead when we went over an hour. The production value of the videos was high - it was impressive.

If I should say anything against this room, we did not like the hint-system. It was audio only and while it fit the story, it did not help us. Probably because we are non-native English speakers we had a hard time understanding what was said in a short clip - sometimes we need a bit of context to appreciate the meaning or to see it in writing.

An excellent implementation that combines a flair of theatricality as well as some wonderful puzzles.  Unusually, this is all done in 3rd person as this room actually has a cameraman so you more engage with your Avatar and he was great.  Also, no inventory system so you have to remember the things you have found.  A thoroughly excellent experience.

Fabulous theming and great characters elevate this escape room to the outstanding score given. It really is a must play, preferably when its dark!

A nicely made demon-hunting game, with a unique approach to avatar filming and presentation that works well.

Extremely well done avatar led room that does a great job building a story and creating a vibe. It felt like we were watching and participating in a live ghost hunter show while we working through the game, and there were some great touches throughout the game that really made it stand. This is one of the rare cases where it feels like the online version of the game is probably significantly better than the in person version of the same game.

Recently converted from the remote avatar version, Exorcist’s point-and-click version utilises Telescape for a 360 view of the room and easy to follow inventory management system. I did go into the game apprehensive, I mean just how scary can a non-hosted game really be? It turns out, quite scary indeed!

Venues are still working out the best way to convert physical games to remote play. For an example of how to do it well, it’s worth looking at E-Exit’s games. Many good remote games still leave me with the impression of being an imperfect substitute for playing in person; Exorcist is one of the rare cases where I’d sooner play the avatar version.
The story is that you’re on a virtual tour of a mansion nicknamed Crowley Manor, and you’re in the narrative from the moment you connect, talking to a...
We loved everything about this game, and strangely lost all concept of time. We knew we had a time limit but we were so captivated by the game that time became a foreign concept. Exceptional hosting, great puzzles, and full on immersion.

Every time I think back to this room I smile. We have great memories of it, but I can't tell you why. It's a whole, the group, John, the riddles, the room, the choice of narrative. It all fits!

What makes The Virtual Exorcist by Emergency Exit Escape Rooms stand out is an incredibly likable avatar and the professionally staged cutscenes that make The Virtual Exorcist a great remote experience.

THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU! THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU… to play this game before it’s too late!

Thematically-speaking, the game goes for the "classical horror" vibe - no excessive gore, very few jumpscares (if any? I'm not telling ), just abandoned rooms with a gloomy vibe. The puzzles were fairly classic, and I'm guessing they must have taken out a few of them in this online version, because a typical group would surely find their way out in short time. Instead, thanks to our (pretty good) host, we were slowly exploring this spooky environment, learning lots of little details that made the setting even more believable. The game also makes good use of video recordings, and I can easily imagine a team getting properly unnerved by the adventure...

My first experience of an online escape room, and the bar has been set incredibly high.
