Out of this world good set design and production, and a few absolutely brilliant moments of trickery by the GM.

This room had elements of game that we've never seen before. A lot of different areas and surprises along the way. We were a bit anxious at the beginning as the first puzzle is a dexterity puzzle that only involved two players so we were a bit concerned to be stuck there for too long but once that puzzle was solved, the game allowed all players to contribute to the game, even when we were all watching something happening, we never felt left out or not involved. The way the game is designed makes you always feel included and you do follow the story told by Ernie Hudson very smoothly. So many great surprises along the way as well, a treat! A couple of things seemed a bit out of theme but could be explained with a stretch. The flow of the puzzles were misleading at times, as the same element was used twice which is unusual and, even though it would make sense, it tricked us and surprised us. We also received a paper asking us to call Ernie Hudson on the phone as soon as we can. The phone was there, we tried to call several times, but no ringtone could be heard and noone ever answered, which seemed (or at least was perceived) like a bug. The final is also very inclusive as all the members of our crew were present to admire the escape. We had an absolute blast. We had a lot of questions after our game but unfortunately we didn't get the time to debrief with the game master as a group was waiting to play that same room and chaos was present in the area as Skurrilum was taken hostage of a fetish party. Haha. Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend!

Fantastic, immersive game from start to finish with some great touches and an engaged GM. Worthy of all its previous accolades. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

Home to the two best games I’ve played – the Ernie Hudson mysteries. They’re the real deal: immersion, exploration, theatre, puzzles, decoration, audio, flow and narrative. In every way I can image, they deliver. And the other games aren’t bad either. If you’re ever in Hamburg go and play these games. And if you ever have the chance to go to Hamburg, seize it!

With Ghost Hunter Ernie Hudson, Skurrilum has once again managed to positively surprise us and create a truly immersive experience that will not only be fun for audio drama fans.

Der Spielverlauf wurde immer wieder von kleinen Highlights unterstützt und sorgte so für ein rundum positives Erlebnis.
