Playing as one half of a team of two I really enjoyed this room, its a classical escape game but has a solid narration with enough embellisment ito the story n the room to enhance the plot without interferring with the game play. Whilst not the biggest of escape rooms the entire game is well themed and has an inventive range of puzzles, signposting is well done for the virtual games and anything that requires reading is of a decent size to be seen and read through the camera.

It was also very nice that the GM didn’t lead us with the camera, which is difficult for the GM to avoid doing in smaller rooms with less moving around as often when the avatar stays still they inadvertently focus on the thing they want you to look at next and subconsiously lead you to the next clue. Nicely done classic room which is ideal for a team or two or three.
