Once booking is done, you'll be contacted from field operations and not just a normal game booking confirmation. We enjoy these little add-ons to spice up the atmosphere prior to the game. We really liked how the game started as it didn't feel like we were going to play a remote escape room. We were put in a real situation where we were sent to help a captured agent. This was the only remote room so far that made me feel like I was part of the avatar (like a voice inside his head). We appreciated the humor that the avatar added to his character (especially on the bonus puzzle) . The only suggestion I have for the avatar would be to know your players and perhaps move quicker when playing with an enthusiast group. You know they are all about escaping in time! It would've been helping if we had a 360 view of the room or an inventory camera/list as it was hard at times to work on multiple things together and this room had a lot to do. The puzzles that we had to think outside the box were my personal favorites. After the mission, we all received a cliffhanger video from Agent November, which left us itching for more!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
