Going in as cold as possible to what “For Queen & Country” is about is probably the best way to experience it. Mind blowing immersion, incredible set design, super polished gameplay, flawless flow, fun and very engaging story (very funny too), puzzles that all connected and made sense (AND NO ENDLESS LOCKBOXES EITHER!). And it can be played in Japanese or English (and the game is offered in 100% perfect English).
All the elements worked together so seamlessly that we were kind of in complete disbelief by the end. What makes the entire experience work is how you truly did not know what was going to happen next when you progressed. Each space was always a new set of skills, puzzles and experiences you hadn’t done or seen yet. And this game has many that we haven’t seen in any escape room ANYWHERE in the world too.
And best of all, it’s not too hard either, which is great because it keeps things breezy, entertaining, and most importantly fun. Newbies and experienced vets alike won’t even care that it’s not the hardest escape room they’ve ever done. The writing, dialogue, immersion, sets, everything is so freaking top notch. I can’t stress enough just how cool and creative this experience is. I wish I could play it for the first time again. If you’re ever in Osaka, Japan, you owe it to yourself to check out For Queen & Country.
