We time traveled back to 1932 to recover an invention by Santos Dumont. If we don't complete this mission within an hour, we'll be stuck in 1932 forever! The props used in this room looked like antiques from the 20th century. There were a few unique uses with these items that gave us "wow" moments. Like the name of the game, the entire room felt like a mystery. I liked how it slowly unraveled as we discovered clues and solved puzzles.
There were a few times we encountered some blurry images and it was hard to see due to the reflections. It would be great if a sturdier camera could be implemented to enhance the experience. The special interface that this escape room used was not seen anywhere by us yet. As we started the game, we were sent in a separate website link a layout of the room and you were able to see how many locks are in it. If you think you have the right answer to one of the locks, you could try it on your portal. If you got it right, your teammate's portals will also get updated with a green check on the lock. This saved a lot of time for us in terms of trying wrong codes but also took away some elements of self discovery. I would've loved to play this room in person as some tech reveals were quite unique but we are thankful to at least to have experienced this remotely as it was definitely a cool room!
