Westmount, 1920.
One of your contacts in the police force has called you to ask you to solve the murder of Mr Cadavera. The rich british lord was found dead in his library and the initial investigation brought to light a short list of potential suspects and murder weapons.
Due to certain political influences, the mayor has decided to silence the matter and the police now have their hands tied. In one hour a specialised team will be coming to clean up the scene of the crime.
Will you be able to figure out who did it and with which weapon before the β€œcleaners” arrive?

this is a room usually played in French and they've recently translated it into English.

Cluedo-esque game with good use of the theme to give an interesting set of puzzles with a variety of challenges. On puzzles and the room alone I'd have been tempted to give it an excellent, but getting thrown out of the game after 35 mins (as did one other player) and the complete nightmare of getting the system to work at the beginning took the shine off the game alittle. Worth waiting a week or teo for the inventory teething to be over, then go and play.

When I played, Ezkapaz had only just started offering remote games, and were struggling with serious tech issues in their online interface. It's tricky to judge how much to take problems like that into account in a review - I imagine they'll find ways to avoid or minimise problems, and in a couple of weeks probably most teams will have a smoother experience.
