Please refer to our “The Murder Case at the Detective's Office” review for an intro of ClockedIn’s location.
“The Mystery of the Secret Storage Room” is the second room we are attempting here. We were debriefed on the disappearance of a famous archaeologist and in this warehouse that we are entering, we needed to find five mythical rune stones which will give the owner true wisdom and eternal life. We may need these stones to find the missing archaeologist. Finding things is one of Watson’s (Brandon) strengths so I let him lead the way this time.
The décor for this room definitely felt much more immersive than the previous. You automatically feel like you've entered a real warehouse with lots of crates in a dim-lit setting. The puzzles also felt more creative in here. As the story line develops, we found more and more “surprises”. There’s a good mixture of traditional key locks and technology in here. We were a little stumped at the end on one of the puzzles as it did sort of need a little outside history knowledge or some lucky guessing. Either way, we were able to figure it out and escape with two people with time to spare. For adventurers out there who’s looking for an Indiana Jones-type experience, give this a try! I did feel a little physical agility was utilized in the room. And for those of you who’s thinking of doing back to back rooms, I have to say we have actual records proving that as you warm up, your score does get better. We thought that we’ll be super tired after the second one but we’re super wired to start on our third game, “The Cocktail party of Vlad D. Hanson ”. Let the fun begin!
