Everyone has secrets. In a time loop, they all have a chance to come out.
​Steep yourself in a web of lies and blackmail as you and your closest friends are cordially invited to open the enigmatic Lord Inkwell's lost time machine. When the machine goes rogue, you must work together to stop it, with only your failed past selves' clues to guide you. But as sordid truths emerge, a darker fact comes to light - one of you is responsible for breaking the machine. With your very futures on the line, will you discover the traitor? Or will your friends discover it was you?
​Murder History is a pop-up escape game with a murder mystery twist. With one of the Inkwell Family as a guide (a live actor), your team of 3-8 friends, companions or rivals (ages 7+!) must work together to escape a doomed time loop while also using Cluedo-like sleuthing to discover which team member is responsible for the whole fiasco! A portable game, it can be played both outdoors and in, or even taken to offices or events.

A well structured game with some fun puzzles and plenty of theatre. Think of it as a boutique puzzle-themed immersive murder mystery experience.
