Exit: Mysterious Museum

Room-in-a-box, May 2019

Rated 3 out of 5
In Exit’s ever-expanding range, Mysterious Museum is pitched to be less challenging, intentionally one of their easier games. Puzzle difficulty is a very subjective matter, but Museum is made more approachable by being much more linear than their nor… (more)

Exit: Sinister Mansion

Room-in-a-box, May 2019

Rated 3.5 out of 5
