We have 60 minutes to restore access to the planet's defense system. If we ran out of time, humankind will be annihilated by aliens!
"The Sapphire Project" is a multi-user interface digital escape game. The graphics gave us memories of 80s computer games. You can invite as many people as you like to join in the game with the same code after purchase. I would imagine getting too crazy with more than 6 people but maybe some people can just be spectators. We felt very comfortable playing with just the 2 of us. It wouldn't be wise to try this game on your own as there's a lot to do. It was also more fun to interact with each other as a team as that's what the interface was build to do.
This digital game really tried to mimic a real escape room with the way the rules and puzzles were setup. The 60 minute timer started right when we entered the main room. Each time you solved a puzzle, a new portal would open up releasing new clues. If you do not finish in time, you won't be able to see the ending. I would strongly advice using the build-in hint system to at least finish the game. Your end score would probably be in the negatives but the ending game is well worth giving up those stubborn "no hint" mindset for and remember, you mission is to save the entire humankind!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
