The briefing included considerably more instructions and overview of the mission structure than normal, and arguably that shouldn't be necessary - a good game should allow players to discover the structure as they play. But here it seemed to me that it fit the story and...
A review of Can You Escape? Edinburgh's Operation Odyssey room, a game that was amazingly well designed with clear progress, parallel, logical puzzles, a pretty set and a fun ending.
You know that feeling when you're hurtling through space in a malfunctioning escape pod, you have to repair it before the meteor shower hits, and you can't stop humming David Bowie's Space Oddity? We're lost in space, in Edinburgh.
