Professor Harrison Atlanta has gone missing. His assistant Abigail contacted you to help find his whereabouts. The last thing she heard him talk about was "Project: Atlantis". Could this be the cause of his disappearance?

Our avatar met us on Zoom inside the professor's office. This game is paired with the Telescape inventory system. Our avatar gave us an overview of the room prior to the start the game. The camera did become in and out of the focus a few times so we definitely suggest the use of a harness.
The room may look normal at first but there were definitely a few hidden surprises waiting for us in the latter parts of the game. This is mostly a gen 1 room but we also enjoy our basic lock and key type of games from time to time.
The puzzles were quite easy for enthusiasts in this game. Most of our time was spend on "search and find". If you're an enthusiast, you probably want to inform your game master on how you would like to play the game at the start of the clock. There were definitely some hidden items that we couldn't see just based on the camera angle and that wasted a lot of game time. It would be great if the avatar could be more intuitive in those situations to point us to the right direction. We finish the game with 2 minutes left but would much prefer a better game flow and finish the game with 20-30 minutes left.
The puzzles were designed to make us feel like we're tracking down professor's whereabouts and it did just that. We were following clues that he left behind on postcards, maps, and other prized possessions. There was one physical puzzle we would love to play in person but it's great that it didn't take too long for our avatar to operate. It was still fun to watch as she skillfully completed the task.
It's always fun to do a traditional type escape room with puzzles we are quite familiar with. There was one tricky one that even trapped us for a second. We enjoyed sleuthing around the professors office and eventually finding what we came for but we're still unsure of the professors whereabouts...Hopefully he'll turn up one day? Or we can just keep what we found? Finders keepers!
I had a great time with the P.I. team solving the mystery of Project Atlantis! The puzzles were on the easy side which was nice since there was also a lot of searching and looking around to do. The main camera had some focus issues, but we were given photos of the most important parts of the room so it affected the immersion more than our puzzle solving abilities. If you’ve played any rooms before you will recognize a few puzzles and mechanics, but there are also a nice twist to some of them!
The room had a very good storyline and was easy to follow. The puzzles were not overly hard but got me thinking and they were some that surprised me after we solved them. The chat master was excellent, she was clear when explaining things. Would recommend giving this room a go.
