"M.A.R.V.O. Archives Phase One" is an online game adventure designed to be the prequel to one of Marvo Mysteries' future games. It felt like a hybrid of a digital escape game and a video game. The use of AI to "solve" obstacles on a "real life" heist mission made the experience truly unique.
This was not your typical escape game where you had to use logic to solve puzzles and open combinations locks. You'll have to think outside of the box and utilize the "tools" given to you. There were a lot of cool gadgets presented in the game but we weren't able to utilize all of them. I would think in Part 2 (coming soon) they would be made available to us. Since we had a little glitch in the game (had to use self guided hint to bypass it), we finished in around 40 minutes. As a puzzle lover, I would love to see some more "puzzle" usage in the next game as it was such a cool concept but just felt like the play time felt too short especially for experienced players.
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
