Our friend Anne phoned us from an asylum asking for our help. She seemed to have been trapped by someone there. We have to get her out before the doctors comes back and start to do experiments on her!
Anne stood in the center of what appears to be an office and the game began. Even though the room appeared small in size, there were a lot of puzzles hidden within. We really liked the drastic set design change from the office to the asylum room. The white walls were full of crazy writings that made you feel like your head is spinning and don't know what was actually useful for this game. We enjoyed the challenge and was able to get out with 7 minutes left on the clock. There was one puzzle we felt that we didn't really get to participate in and was given the answer. This room would be enjoyed by puzzle lovers for sure. We liked the organized inventory list as it helped the team with working on different puzzles simultaneously. Oh, and for people who are scaredy-cats like me, don't worry there were no jump scares. Ok, I lied, maybe just one tiny one, but it was worth it!
