For an online escape room, I have high expectations having done over 150 real escape rooms. This was a great experience, my partner and I loved the game, it had the genuine feel of an escape room and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend
Plays like a cross between an escape room and a point-and-click adventure videogame, yet somehow fails to capture the delight of either. Playing online via a webbrowser means your team all share the same synchronised view of the game and you can see where your teammates are clicking, but there's a delay in the response to every input making the game feels slow and laggy. Combined with the pre-rendered, static graphics leads to the feeling of playing a "Myst"-clone from the 1990s, yet without the charm or innovation.
The puzzle content itself is solid enough, but rather predictable - several "count the objects" puzzles, some ciphers etc. and the story is fine, but not really engaging.
So while the game is perfectly functional - we encountered no game-breaking bugs or mistakes - it simply failed to excite or delight.
We played this in multi-player mode and it worked really well. A classic point and click adventure with escape room-esque puzzles. Great value for money.
It is a great online game. Loved the story and riddles. Please make more!
So far amongst the best online games I've played during lockdown!
