Professor Curtis Lockwood, adventurer extraordinaire, that was how he used to introduce himself to everyone. You remember stories he would tell of his adventures around the world, all the treasure he brought back, the damsels he saved. He was a hero to you.
It had been months since you last heard from him which is why it surprised you when his butler called you and told you to meet him at the mansion.
You arrive to find the place empty, no sign or Curtis or the butler. As you look around you remember about the secret gallery he used to take you as a kid. Quickly you head inside and find a letter addressed to you.
What secrets could this letter contain? What happened to Professor Curtis Lockwood?

Played alone and tbh it was too easy. Far too much stuff you don't need lying about too.

This room is ok if you like complexed puzzles, but there isnt a lot of actual interaction with the room. and it is just the one room. Plus a couple of the puzzles were a bit too hard!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Much improved on the first version of the Invitation but still not as good as most of the games in the surrounding area. Beginners will have fun but I think enthusiasts will leave feeling shortchanged.
A game with a unique element we’ve never seen before and some fun puzzles.
