Our team of 3 were sent in as CIA spies to infiltrate a secret KGB hideout. The game started right away into our avatar being locked up in a jail cell and we had to get her out to safety ASAP!
The dim lighting, usage of flash light and the avatar's ability to move in stealth mode all contributed to the immersive experience of this game. Good thing the game designer didn't add much searching to the room as it would've been difficult with the lighting situation. There was a separate portal for the inventory list and that also helped with items you couldn't see well. The table in the room served as a great area to put items that were already used or not in play. We did find one puzzle where we felt that outside knowledge was needed but good thing my teammates have experienced this before. If your team does not have the knowledge to solve this, a clue paper would be provided (Update 5/29/20: The owners have came up with an alternative solution to this puzzle so this issue should be resolved now). The game did contain some fun physical puzzles that fits well with the story line. It was a puzzle heavy game so definitely get in with a strong team if you want to save the agent, as we barely made it out with 1 min 28 sec left on the clock! But that is the exact adrenaline pump that we, "escape-junkies", look for !
