Oh no, we’ve gotten lost in the forest in the basement of a house. It’s getting dark and we have this foreboding feeling that we need to get out by midnight.

Despite a confused story, the room layout is spectacular. It takes full advantage of elevation changes, blending to create a fantasy excursion. From apartment to forest, to more that I don’t want to spoil. I appreciate the amount of effort put into the construction. It’s one of those rooms that feels complete.

There were a good assortment of puzzles well integrated into the environment. Many of them were difficult to solve, and the four of us failed the room — taking 3 minutes over the 90 limit. There’s a lot of novelty here, with some puzzles not even being related to ones I’ve seen before.

There were relatively few aspects I didn’t like, such as it being needlessly dark. I stood idle a few times, but was mostly active. Somehow, something felt missing overall, like it should have been more fun than it was. Nonetheless, the forest is a solid gaming experience.

A nice room with a good assortment of things to do and wonderful decor.
