Your team of fellow scientists have been working tirelessly to create a vaccine for the fatal CYE disease. Everyone believes that you are on the cusp of defeating it. Unfortunately your work has taken a turn for the worse and you have all managed to contract the virus.
There are two options:
Either sit around and let it take you or redouble your efforts and create a vaccine.
This is not your only problem. After creating the vaccine you must find a way to defeat the lock down on the laboratory. The quarantine timer is set to 60 minutes, after which the room and all traces of your work will be incinerated. You must do this if the rest of humanity is to benefit from your work.
Get your white coat and your safety goggles on as you prepare for Contagion....
Our first themed game for Glasgow, Contagion is also our first multi-room live escape game. It will demand outside the box thinking with an interesting array of problem solving, code-breaking and other various puzzles.
