LogIQrooms - "System Overload"
Updated: Dec 11, 2020
📖 THE STORY
We were under attack and had to infiltrate the enemy headquarters’ computer to find out who the terrorists were and stop them within the hour!
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
This was probably the most clever way we’ve seen old computer parts being applied in an escape room to various puzzle.
The set design was limited due to the size of the room but there was no wasted space. Everything that could have be utilized was used. We were mostly focused on the centerpiece of the room than anything else since a lot of the puzzles revolved around it.
The puzzles were unique and closely tied with the mission. They were very logical, and all the items had to be used in the room. We liked how some clues were “subtle” but made perfect sense.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
We did get an alert in the form of light when something opened as we solved a puzzle, but it was still time consuming to find out what had opened. If a sound or a better “releaser” could be installed on the drawers it would help with the “notice”.
Some music could be added to the room for a more suspense atmosphere, especially towards the end.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
“LogIQrooms” is a local family operated business. The game we played is not for public booking yet as it's still going through the final stages of its beta-testing phase. I’m sure it’ll be available soon as we didn’t find much tweaking needed. Other than this room they have two others on site. This room is not really about the set design although we appreciated the design of the centerpiece (which ultimately became a game piece). But if you love puzzles and tech related subjects, you’ll enjoy this room. Our recommended size for the room is 2-3 people.
You may have a slight advantage if you are a “techie”, but no outside knowledge is needed.
