We are renowned scientists that have been kidnapped by a villain. He's forcing us to make the vaccine to cure the world from the pandemic and to make him rich for life. We need to escape from his evil plan but first we have to get out of this dungeon!

This game is a point-n-click game that can be played with a single player/team or multiple players. It's very easy to operate and if you get stuck, there's a self guided hint system. You'll be able to use the same login after purchase and play over audio/video conferencing. We chose to play it over "PubHub" since it was more efficient to search various areas and double check each other's work. The game will not sync each player's actions so if you opened a lock, the other player will also have to use the same code to open that lock.

The fact that there's no inventory list in the game and there's a good amount of space to explore made it feel like we were playing in a real escape room. We needed to remember where we saw something and what we haven't used. This was when having two people became beneficial since we were able to remind each other of different clues we saw in different locations. There were a good mixture of logic and math puzzles. Some of them didn't feel like they coordinated to the story. We were able to complete the game in about 40 minutes or so but for beginners it might take longer especially if you don't use any of the hints. It's nice to know that they have two new games in the works! We can't wait to see what "Astronomical Oxygen Disaster" and Games Night Bust Up" is all about!
