We played this escape room over Zoom with a live avatar and an inventory system on Telescape. We started the game with the avatar giving us an overview of the interrogation room. The set design really portrayed the theme pretty well since there's not much in the first room other than a table and some chairs. Although this is one of their older rooms, the set design was still pretty well maintained. We liked the progression of the game as more were revealed at a later stage. Telescape was great for keeping objects we found in line and really helped us to be able to visualize the clues more clearly. One thing the avatar did really well was his subtle hints at items that we would be able to see really easily in person but hard to discover on camera. You have two free hints to use that won't cost you on your final score so do take advantage of those. If you have time left definitely attempt the Easter Egg puzzle!
This room had a lot of unexpected "tools" that were utilized with the puzzle elements. We had fun discovering them throughout the game play. It was great that the avatar was able to set the camera down on a stand while he was solving a physical puzzle for us as it really helped us envision how it should've been done if we were playing there in person. There was a good amount of reading clues in this room but since they were in the inventory portal, one teammate could be assign to that (of course it's me) while the other continued to solve other puzzles. We did feel that the clue items we found in the inventory system could be more interactive for players rather than just jpgs. There was one clue we missed which if the items were enlarged into single clue photos, it could possibly be avoided.
District 3 Escape Rooms did a great job with bringing in that intensity of an interrogation room through the set design, sound effects and puzzle design. From starting off in an fairly empty room to discovering it's secrets along the way, we're able to come up with a successful escape plan. If you want to experience the "scare factor" on a full scale level, you'll have to visit them in person!
