We were sent in by Ms. Maryweather, a world renowned archaeologist to find her most valued possession. Our avatar had a great "storyteller" voice. It actually made the experience felt magical like we were on a Disney adventure.
The set design had a mansion type of feel with beautiful antique props. The lighting had a nice balance of keeping the ambiance but not losing the visibility. The minor issue we had during the game was the camera device that was used. Since our avatar was holding a GoPro stick in one hand, she only one hand free to perform the tasks. This caused some shakiness during the game and also made lock opening quite difficult. It would be great if a harness type of camera could be introduced.
The puzzles weren't extremely difficult but they were fun and often came with surprising elements. We were satisfied with the amount of puzzles that were introduced in this room. For people who haven't tried a remote escape game yet, this is a great one to start with. You'll definitely feel hooked afterwards!
