One of the things I regret the most is not having played the old rooms of The Great Escape. “The Experiment” was for a long time among the top rooms of the country, but unfortunately it closed its doors, before I got the chance to play it.

In my experience when a company produces top-notch games, it is a rarity to be disappointed by their further games and therefore expectations were high.

The Mission is as the name says a “mission room” rather than a classical escape room. These adventures including role playing elements are not so common in the Netherlands and therefore provide for an enrichment of the escape room scene in the country.

It is true that not every escaper is necessarily into role playing and actor interaction, but those who are should definitely pay a visit to this company. The Mission provides for a large well-designed set that includes really nice transitions and many interesting original props. As an experienced group we made it with not much time left on the clock, partly due to our own mishaps, but nevertheless this is quite nice, as sometimes these experiences are a little bit thin on the puzzle/activities side, but this was clearly not the case here and kept us busy throughout the duration of the game.
