You are invited to spend an hour with the famous Dr. Becker at Boleskine Lodge Practice.

He is currently with another patient and will be with you shortly. In the meantime make yourself at home and enjoy his hospitality and his study - a beautiful place decorated with his bizarre collection of strange and wonderful things.

But do not dig too deeply as things are not always as they seem in this place, after all it is well known that some of his previous guests are still there after volunteering to help with his studies.

Dr. Becker has a past which is questionable at best and not everyone agrees with his methods.

The Horrors of Crowley Manor is now a trilogy (or as we like to call it ... the #JusticeForLiam venue) and let me tell you was it worth the wait.

The story continues and both Ronnie and Liam return for more spooky shenanigans. As with the other remote games from Emergency Exit they excel with their hosting and the banter was just wonderful throughout. 

Add to this great sound and camera work and top it off with a seamless merging of realities and you've got a worthy successor of both Exorcist and the Beast.  The puzzles are well-themed to the narrative and are engaging and inventive.

If you've played the first two remote rooms then you'll appreciate the nods to the previous games. But don't worry if you haven't played the previous ones, as the narrative and gameplay of this room works as a standalone.

This is a MUST play avatar room. I loved this game so much that I'm going to come back in a few weeks' time (with a different team) to enjoy it again.

The best at Emergency Exit IMO, one of the creepiest rooms we’ve done and good puzzles. The finale was particularly stressful/scary!

great hosting😨creepy
Definitely not for the screamish!  This game is another dealing with potentially uncomfortable themes.  Medical experiments gone awry is another popular theme and this is very much a game of two halves.  It does feature live actors and also a degree of theatricality that I’ve not seen before.  Puzzles are mostly linear with a combination of searching, placement and deduction.

Host did a great job with immersion and the story. We found it creepy and very realistic! Some puzzles were very clever but some were broken as the host had to come into the room to fix it which broke the immersion. Would have preferred a more range of puzzles too.

Among the best remote avatar games we've played.  The integration of cut scenes was absolutely seamless, and really elevated this into a cinematic experience.  The set was wonderfully spooky, and there was a good assortment of puzzles, with few traditional locks.  The usual mix of light-hearted and bloody-minded hosting that we experienced with these folks' other games.  Absolutely a "must do" for fans of online escape rooms.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The year 2022 started with the eagerly awaited news, that the award winning company „Emergency Exit Escape Games“ came up with a new chapter: „The Studies of Dr Becker“ is their third online available Escape Game after „Exorcist“ and „The Beast“. And with them both still being No. 1 and No. 4 on our Top-List (since 20 month and after many more games played) …the expectations were high! And we weren’t disappointed!

The Studies of Dr. Becker was a fantastic game overall which had so many high points from the interactions of Charlie and Liam to the high-quality videos that integrated seamless into the story. The characters of Charlie and Liam also played off each other and us which brought some humor and fun as an added bonus. This game reminds me a lot of Simon Pegg’s “Shawn of the Dead” movie with the style of horror and dark humor. This game is offered in person at their location, which you should play if you ever get the chance. Otherwise, this is a great game to play as an online experience (plus you might only be able to enjoy a "nice view" of Liam through the remote version).

We would really recommend playing The Studies of Dr Becker (and its predecessors if you haven’t yet). We are sure that an in-person visit would be equally fun but we can’t stop raving about the online hosted experience. At £20pp (for a four player team), this is a great way to spend your Friday night.
