Really enjoyed playing this room, its not the most challenging on an intellectual/puzzle level, however, its seriously good fun to play. A somewhat humble and understated beginning leads on to a beautifully designed main set full of surprises!

quite difficult

Played this on the same game as Mutiny and equally as challenging to complete as a 2, very happy to have done so as apparently more puzzles in this room than in Mutiny. As with the other room, great design and staging, a huge space in which to complete all the challenges.

quite difficult

Great room, loads to do, but is tough to finish as a 2. We didn't really waste much time making errors or getting stuck but didn't quite make it. It did get a bit frustrating at times, as we didn't get the same kind of nudge from the GM as I've been used to in the past, especially on a couple of occasions where we'd essentially figured out all the component parts of a puzzle but hadn't located where to input the solution. I would still recommend it, but given our experience level, mid-30s in terms of number of games completed, wish I had done the room with more players.

Really fun game, hard work to complete as a 2, but not unachievable, just need to make sure the logical part of your brain is on top form, some of the puzzles take a bit of working out. As others have said, interacting with the AI makes for a unique and very different experience!

Really well designed game, and despite our unexpectedly quick time (Venus took us a lot longer earlier that same day), we didn't feel we hadn't had value for money, great fun and very satisfying game to play. Puzzles tie in well to the theme and the narrative flows well through the game.

Solid if unspectacular game, overall good fun and well themed room, however, somewhat of an overuse of padlocks we felt which at times felt like we were solving puzzles for the sake of solving puzzles at times rather than to achieve the objective of the game.

Another beautifully designed and immensely fun and unique game to play with some delightful humour, slightly curious final puzzle that I wasn't quite convinced about, but that is such a small detail in an otherwise great room.

This is a beautifully designed game, with quite unique elements I've never seen in an escape room before, puzzles and narrative generally fit well together, thoroughly recommend!

Fun game which is generally well designed and logical. Interesting concept where your mission is not necessarily to escape as quickly as possible but to collect as many  of a certain type of object as you could before your time limit is up.
