Every now and then, an escape room excites or astonishes me - however, it has been a while since a room has made me genuinely happy while playing through it.
Cannot recommend enough, excellent puzzles/story/design throughout - of personal note was the fantastic music throughout the experience which I would happily listen to again.
Absolutely loved this room.
The premise - you are in a time machine that will reset in 60 seconds - is new to me (which is always nice). The flow of the puzzles is excellent and while the room is clearly handmade (everything is made in house) it does not detract from the experience. I don't want to give anything away but when you see the last section it was a "wow, how did they do that?" moment for us.
The room only takes four people (which shows Deadlocked's commitment to art vs money). The size of the room also means that you know pretty much everything that happens - for me I like to understand the whole thread of the story and puzzles so this was a big plus for me.
We would love to have taken Wexie home with us! One of the most adorable game guides I have seen!
Some nice puzzle moments as well, but nothing overly exciting. This is made up for with excellent theme/storyline, and interesting twist. Some really humorous moments via audio, which was very enjoyable.
Solid room, solid puzzles - interesting storyline that doesn't get lost in the background., including good use of immersive storytelling techniques (live videos etc, updating you on mission progress, pinches of humour thrown in for good measure)
Furthermore an excellent & friendly host & owner who seems to be pushing some interesting themes, i look forward to trying out Deadlocked's further rooms!
Max out a team at 4, I feel any more would be overcrowded. Long time enthusiasts should ask for the extended edition.
