Sherlock Holmes discovered some dirty secrets on a few of Her Majesty's closest acquaintances. He suspected that they were the ones that stole the Queen's jewelry a few years ago. We need to find these evidence and save Sherlock from his kidnappers!
Live Cam Escape had a very organized remote escape room setup. It felt like they have been doing this type of game for years. After our intro, our avatar Greg took us on a detailed tour of the room. He was accompanied by the lovely camera man Mark. Since our avatar had both hands, it was very easy for him to open locks and execute our commands. We really enjoyed the clarity and close up shots from Mark. Greg also did a great job interacting with us as the detective in the field.
The decor felt like we were in the 1800s. The office space had very high ceilings and contained a few "surprises". The lighting made it very easy to see all the puzzles. There was no inventory system but we didn't feel like it was necessary. When we needed a closer look on the puzzle, the avatar was able to put a PDF image directly into our Zoom screen. Since the puzzles were linear and not too difficult (we also had help from our friend Rich who's done over 900 rooms), we got out in 31 minutes including the 4 minutes of room touring time. Yay for breaking new record! Even though we crushed the room, we still had lot of fun. We much prefer a room that had puzzles that made sense versus one that was difficult because of "time filler" puzzles. Live Cam Escape will be coming out with an app soon that should make the remote experience even more seamless. We can't wait to check out what else they have up their sleeves!
