Time has passed since the cataclysm brought about by Project X. The reconstruction is almost complete and the world is fast returning to normal. The dark days of quarantine are over! People have returned to the streets, the parks have reopened, and children are once again back in the playgrounds.
Some scars remain, however. We are the victims of the attendant economic crisis. No-one has any money left for good, honest criminals like us to steal! Do you remember our first mission together? Back then we wanted to get our hands on Simon Dickson’s fortune, but we failed. It’s time to try again, and finally complete the mission. The Operator is waiting for you!

For an online escape room, I have high expectations having done over 150 real escape rooms.  This was a great experience, my partner and I loved the game, it had the genuine feel of an escape room and very reasonably priced.  Would highly recommend

Reviews by escape room review sites

Not having (yet) played Crime Runners' physical escape rooms, I don't know the details of the story of which this online game is a continuation. That wasn't a barrier to playing this, though it did make me quite curious to go and discover what the earlier chapters involved.
Back To The Congressman is in theory a heist story, though since this game only covers the first chapters of the story it's more an 'infiltrate a mansion' story. Your game screen shows a picture of your location, and you can...

We very much enjoyed this game and came away with the same type of buzz that we get when we complete a physical escape room. We were truly immersed in the story and were saddened when we reached the end. For now, we’ll just have to wait for the sequel

This digital game was the closest we felt to an onsite escape room so far. The graphics were beautiful with details of tree twigs to cracks on walls. The storytelling and sound system felt like we were watching a mystery movie the entire time. Our most enjoyable moments were the creepy walks in the forest and the creaking sounds of the old stairs in the manor.
