Lost Games - "Chapter 2: Playtime"
Updated: Nov 11, 2020
📖 THE STORY
This is a continuation of Chapter One. Being stuck in the asylum and poisoned by Dr. Kieling, we finally found the cure at the end. Now we need to escape out of this place!
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
From the lobby ambience to the daunting intro performance by the game master to being led to the room, it felt like we were at a physical asylum living through the real experience.
Great concept of the confinement segment as it made the experience special yet added to the suspense.
We really enjoyed a few unique physical puzzles that we haven’t seen anywhere before, yet it’s so cleverly intertwined with the story line.
We always enjoy a room that can incorporate the clue system into the story line. It definitely made the room more immersive.
Props were well made and fit the storyline seamlessly.
Puzzles were all enjoyable and had a great flow.
Love the design of the ending component. It’s refreshing to see a reasonable yet enjoyable strong finish.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
A puzzle in the latter part of the game had an insertion component. When I tried to put it inside, it got stuck. Eventually, I was able to push it in and make it work.
The beginning felt a lot more puzzle heavy than the latter room even though it was equal in size. It would be great if a few more puzzles could be incorporated since we really like the set design for that room and would love to see it being utilized more.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
After playing with so many horror themed escape rooms, this one can definitely be added to our top room list. The set design, lighting, and sound had the complete package. Even with no live actors, you’ll feel chills down your spine from time to time. We were able to escape with 2 people, but the room is spacious enough for more. Our recommended size is 4. We hope you make some “friends” in there, so you’ll be able to escape alive!
