Rise of the Mad Pharaoh is the latest game by Seattle’s Hourglass Escapes to be converted for avatar play. They’re perhaps best known for their Evil Dead 2 game, and as you might guess from the title this one shares a certain B-movie tone to its story, gleefully hamming it up with tongue firmly in cheek.

This game was definitely one of our favorite remote escape rooms so far. The puzzles translated well in terms online play and Hourglass was able to use Telescape too create a brand new experience in the remote escape room realm that we've never experienced before. We really enjoyed the role playing idea and the interactive team effort within Telescape. It's great to see that Hourglass was able to utilize their creativity to formulate these entertaining ideas for the online play to make up for the fact that we can't play it in person. If you think you have what it takes to save the doctor from the evil mummy, round up your team now!

This game was a lot of fun and the few issues I had have likely been resolved. (They have since moved to a larger space, and have multiple versions of the game depending on your team size.) I would definitely recommend it, if for no other reason than to check out that amazing sarcophagus centerpiece. They are also offering a remote version of the game, so now might be a great time to try it, especially if you’re not in the Seattle area.
