A "Lost Pyramid" was unearthed after four thousand years. It belong to the first Pharaoh of Egypt. Our team of 3 was sent on a mission to uncover its secrets.
The game started with a nice introductory video of the back story. Shortly after, Keith, our avatar, gave us a detailed overview of the room. Our timer started after the tour was over. Keith was very quick at implementing our commands. This room did not have an inventory system, but most of the time we didn't feel like it was necessary. The puzzles were quite linear and there weren't too many items that needed to be found through searching. We appreciated that since the room was a bit dark due to having to stick with its theme.
There was one puzzle we thought could've definitely used an interactive interface on a separate portal. It would've been great if we could play along with the avatar as it was hard to visualize from the camera and didn't translate well for a remote game. For that reason, it took a lot of time for us to solve this puzzle. However, the set design, special effects and the "secrets" we were able to discover in the game definitely gave us a lot of "wow" moments. One particular physical "puzzle" was my favorite. As Keith was operating it, I was watching him with my "huge jealous puppy" eyes. This was definitely a room we would've loved to play in person!
