TLDR: gameplay was good but it’s the atmosphere and effects that made this a truly memorable room and one of the best experiences I’ve had.
My group was lucky enough to have the owner and builder of the rooms be our game master for the night. I got to talk to him about why he created this, and he said it was his passion project. After doing this room, I could tell.
Gameplay: I did this escape room with a group of five people. It ranged from people who have never done an escape room, to people who have done about 20 escape rooms. It was good to see clues that everyone was able to get. I also have never seen this before, but the first clue scales, depending on how many people are in your group, which was a really cool idea and is executed well. Overall the clues were good. While nothing about the clues really stood out, it’s the atmosphere that makes this truly memorable.
Atmosphere: you could tell the game builder spent a lot of time, making sure this was an adventure, rather than just a couple puzzles thrown into a room to solve. From the props, to the special effects, to the immersive story, it was awesome. This was my first escape room, where there was actually a decent story, where you discovered more about the story as you solved the clues. We also appreciated how the clues were realistic and logical to the story.
