We were hired to continue an unsolved case by private investigator Rick Murphy. The case dated back to the year 1951 and while Rick was on the case, he suddenly went missing. Our only hope was his office. Maybe he left some trails for us to follow...

Like Mystery Mansion Regina's other remote escape rooms, this one also had an inventory portal. All the online games use "Telescape" as the portal (You can read in detail how it works on our "Cut Throat" review). The avatar, Mitch, had always been an entertainer throughout all our games. This time was no exception. He was very much in character as a rookie detective in the field. He made a serious detective game into a hilarious "Rated R" room through his puns. If you are curious on how that happened, just let him run the game. There were a few times during the game where we thought the puzzle design would be more fun to play in person but was hard to enjoy in the remote version. They felt too long to operate by the avatar and we could only watch. We did give some feedback on how this could be improved so hopefully you'll get the smoother version when you play the game. There were many puzzles to go through and due to the previous mentioned parts, it was necessary to have a 75 minute game. We completed the game as a team of 4 with 8 minute and 25 seconds left. The room was pretty Gen-1 in terms of tech but we didn't mind that since the puzzles were creative and stuck with the story line.

The ending was a nice touch leaving us with a cliffhanger. The Detective's office is the first of a three part escape room story based on the stolen necklace. We are very excited to see what the next two rooms will be. From the sneak peek we got from the owner, we can tell it's definitely going to be something refreshing and different from a normal "room" concept. When they finish the other two rooms, you'll be able to play all three back to back. Who doesn't love an escape marathon?
