We booked a remote tour of the Crowley Manor (I'm kind of glad it was a remote experience as there were definitely jumpy moments). The tour guide informed us about the danger of staying in the manor for more than an hour. There were many strange happenings and disappearances. Since we're not physically there, we were happy to sent the tour guide and his camera crew in to do the exploration for us (JK! We totally cared about their safety...).
The tour guide did a great job showing us around with some intriguing back stories. We enjoyed his moments of being scared and his sarcastic humor. We definitely sensed something "evil" that was lurking in on us throughout the hour. The puzzles were really enjoyable, especially the ones with video integrations. There was a lot to do. As 4 experienced players, we had about only a few minutes left at the end.
This game was also the second remote game we've experienced that utilized two people as avatars (the tour guide and the camera man). They definitely had it down in terms of the whole production. The camera man was great at capturing the different angles to show up close ups on items and locks. We felt like we were on set filming a reality show. The footage was surprising stable for the entire time. There was no inventory list for this game but we felt like there was no need for it. We actually enjoyed it more since we didn't have to worry about missing any action on the main screen. The cliffhanger at the end was well played. Now we can't wait for the next chapter!
