Probably a super duper cool room to do in person, with an extremely immersive set.  In the live avatar version we struggled with the lighting--one puzzle was rendered nearly impossible because it was just too dark.  The telescape elements were very helpful, and we particularly appreciated that there were puzzles that team members could break off and do while the rest of the team were exploring.  A very pleasant host who definitely helped to make the game fun.  And with amazing green nails 😉

My team and I had such a blast playing the live avatar version of this digital escape room!  It did take a little adjustment to familiarize ourselves with the telescape platform, but each clue we discovered was neatly categorized and accessible.  The puzzles were varied and allowed great collaboration as we worked together to decipher answers.  I loved the creativeness of the premise - time traveling to a pirate ship to restore the timeline.  Please don't miss this gem of a game!

We felt the digital presentation could use some work.  It was not clear how everything worked in the digital format and so quite a bit of energy was spent just trying to figure out how to do things and what was what.  Could be much better with a bit more tweaking on that side of things.

Pirates with a supernatural twist!

A nice game with many rooms. Physical rooms with digital elements somewhat embedded. We weren't fans of the decor, but mostly happy with the puzzles. 

At some point there was a word riddle where you have to make a bit of a leap. That gave us trouble. Most people will probably not have a problem with this leap. 

The game was built on telescape with inventory and at some point you had to input two words in a text box, but most of the time you could interact with more naturally with the surroundings.
