Mother once had a priceless ring of pearls that went missing after her death. Uncle Reginald has instructed you to return to her house and room to uncover the clues likely left by mother and uncover the heirloom. The catch…you only have one hour until liquidators arrive to process the house. Let us return to Appleyard estate and solve this mystery!

After clicking the link provided, you are brought over the Know Escape’s chosen online platform for their games, Jitsi. Your Gamemaster will explain the instructions of the game and also show a well introduction video that explores the backstory of the game, which I loved. This game is essentially an audio escape game with the GM performing some elements of a point-n-click and an audio escape game. Your group informs the GM which items you want to inspect and which rooms you want to explore and they will click them as well as provide prompted details that are revealed when you explore. It’s essentially an interactive narrative which means you can easily immerse yourself by engaging with the GM. There is also an inventory that the GM will keep track of for you at the bottom of the screen.
There are hints available - the GM can provide up to three hints during your adventure.

The puzzles within Mother’s Room are mainly logic based. By observing your surroundings and deducing connections between your inventory and what your task is, you problem solve your way through. I found the puzzles light and a relaxing experience that allowed our group to explore and engage with the GM. It was fun when we put the connections together as it often created a domino effect of what we must do. I would say towards the end it felt more like a video game experience where we just needed to put everything together but I liked that. Overall, the puzzles are quite light but this game does a great job pushing your exploration and observing your surroundings.
"Mother’s Room" is a playful audio experience that allows groups to engage and explore with an escape room in a refreshing way that physical escape rooms are unable to do. Our GM, Mia, was amazing in her banter and guidance in our exploration. I love the cheekiness and tone that her attitude had on our game. This is the kind of game for newer players or those looking for something to relax and just connect with. I look forward to seeing more of their games.
