📖 THE STORY

In January 1972, the New York Police Department began investigating two suspected kidnappings that occurred within 48 hours. A woman was abducted from Brookdale Hospital at night, and the next day, her three children were taken from their schoolyard in Park Slope. The community is concerned, and the police find disturbing clues at the crime scenes. A young NYPD detective, who is in a highly secure apartment, has uncovered some surprising results. Players must navigate the detective's security systems to access his secrets and discover the truth behind the kidnappings.

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Le Cube Secret boasts an awe-inspiring and formidable location unlike any other escape room venue we've encountered. Set within a massive, imposing metal cube, all of their rooms are housed within this extraordinary structure.

  • The ending of Le Cube Secret added a thrilling and unique element to the experience. It created the sensation that we had been ensnared by the cunning security system and were now racing against the clock to make our escape.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • Following the inventive and engaging first puzzle, our anticipation grew for more unconventional and extraordinary elements in the room's design. However, the subsequent puzzle flow turned out to be more conventional and aligned with what is commonly encountered in escape rooms. Although the puzzles were not lacking in quality, we couldn't help but desire more of the unique and innovative approach showcased in the initial puzzle

  • The game demonstrated a commendable attention to detail in crafting its story, setting the stage for an immersive experience. However, as we progressed through the game, we found that the opportunity to build upon the information provided and delve deeper into the narrative was lacking. While the initial story elements captivated our interest, we were left wanting more development and integration of the storyline as the game unfolded
