Escape.exe - "Site 117"
Updated: Dec 11, 2020
📖 THE STORY
It’s approximately the year 2100 C.E. (relative to Earth). Our team was being deployed to "Site 117" as we had lost contact with 4 of our most elite test subjects. TS 101 was recovered but unresponsive. We needed to find out what was going on...
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
There were some innovative puzzles that we haven’t seen before.
We enjoyed the choices that we had to make for various endings.
One prop in particular felt really genuine and was fun to see it in action.
A.I. “Gavin” was a great add on to the immersion factor.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
Lighting was a bit too bright for the starting point. It would've been great if it was dimmer with some fog for some added effects especially when you are led into the room blindfolded.
It would be great if the additional hints can be spoke with A.I. "Gavin" as well to keep the consistency. Update: Owner has informed that additional voice interactions have been added to "Gavin" since our visit.
The hint for one of the puzzles was kind of confusing as it could be read in various ways. It would be great it could be clarified. Update: Owner has informed that additional hints have been added since our visit.
A bit more music integration and lights at various “revealing” moments when a puzzle is complete would add more intensity to the game play.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
The puzzles were pretty challenging for just the two of us. There was a lot to do and some puzzles were two or three step puzzles. For beginners, we would recommend a bigger group so you can divide and conquer. Let us know which choice you made after trying out the room!
Copy and do.
