While the ASF heatedly debates the most important items on the agenda in a video meeting, unforeseen incidents occur. All of a sudden, Elvira's kitchen puts all other important issues in the background. Actually, only the ransom that Elvira swindled on the ASF should be recaptured there. However, there are indications in the kitchen that point to really weird hanky-panky...

The list of avatar games that have actually been created for that format, rather than built for physical play then converted through necessity, is exceedingly short; but the release of Showdown extends that list by one. And like some of the others on that list, it’s an exceptional game that experiments with the genre format to make a highly distinctive experience.
The mission involves infiltrating a suspect’s apartment, a premise that’s somewhat similar to that of two other well-known and highl...

Vorgeschichte: Was ist die Anti-Schlabbeck-Force (ASF)?Im August 1988 wurde die 16-jährige Madita im Neuwieder Einkaufzentrum Schlemmerkuppel tot aufgefunden. Maditas Bruder Anton war sich damals schon sicher, dass deren eigener Bruder, Schlachter Franz-Josef Schlabbeck, die Schwester auf dem Gewissen hat. Seit damals gibt es an jedem 8. August ein Todesopfer. Mit seinen besten Freunden gründete Anton die Anti-Schlabbeck-Force. Ziel der ASF war und ist es, Schlabbeck als Mörder von Madita und allen weiteren Opfern zu überführen.

Every now and then a game appears out of nowhere and destroys all of the benchmarks for what I consider to be a truly exceptional online game. Showdown from 66 Minuten was one such game.
This avatar game was quite different than your ordinary remote escape game. It was more like a theater production. The game master in the backend was controlling when to play the prerecorded videos, muting zoom for players, bringing the camera back to the avatar, playing music when entering into the next scene and more! It's hard to imagine that there's only one person behind all of this but he was able successfully put on a great show. Agent Avaford was also great at acting as a timid and amateur agent. There were a lot of funny moments but I think it would've been even funnier in German!

66 Minutes - Theater Adventures unleashes a true multimedia fireworks display for their 99-minute Remote Escape Room adventure. Showdown is a high-quality production that is bursting with whimsical humor and innovative ideas.
