We loved the Miss Jezebel remote escape room so when the owner informed us about this game, we had to beta test it right away even if it meant to stay up till 2AM! This review is based on the beta test we did prior to the actual release. You might experience some components of the game differently since the owner has changed some items based on our feedbacks and other feedbacks he's gotten from the beta testing.
Although the game is free, you'll still have to book a slot for your group because it'll be monitored by a game master online over Zoom. Hints could be asked through the Zoom chat. The game is played over a program called Telescape and Zoom is merely served as the group's communication tool.
In this digital version of Miss Jezebel, you'll see some familiar characters like Miss Jezebel, her sock puppet and the star of the show, Orion the cat. Orion is very protective of his owner and he definitely sensed some danger coming from Miss Jezebel's newest suitor. Together, we should be able stop new this new suitor from his evil plans.
The videos were all filmed from the perspective of Orion. It's quite brilliant the way they presented this digital game from beginning to end. We felt like we're watching a reality TV show where by solving puzzles, new episodes were revealed. You should definitely assign a team leader and he/she will be the designated "password submitter". Headphones are recommended so that when videos are playing your teammates won't hear an echo in the background. Since there's no going back after the password gets entered, everyone should agree before moving forward.
This was definitely one of our favorite digital games. The puzzles were a lot of fun but not too difficult. They are what we would characterize as "entertaining". We couldn't stop laughing the entire time. Everyone will definitely have their moments to "shine". It was a great bonding experience. We highly recommend you trying out this game!
Oh yea...And will happen in one way or another....
