We were contacted by a hostage who's been kidnapped by Lindomar dos Anjos, a notorious serial killer in the Curitiba region. He's known for involving creepy dolls with human sacrifices and bizarre rituals. We have 60 minutes to help the victim to break free before Lindomar returns and finishes what he had started ...
This game was played over Zoom. There was no inventory system but we didn't seem to need it for this game. You are required to download Whatsapp so photos could be sent to you during the game in case you need a closer look on certain items. We started right away in a creepy cabin. The game master gave us a tour of the room. The light was a bit dark to see some items clearly but when he zoomed in on it, it was much better. We would definitely recommend turning your cameras off as the WiFi signal wasn't that great throughout the game. Although we were able to complete the mission in time but the lag and disconnect definitely took some play time off the clock. This might be due to the fact that the game uses a router to share the WiFi from the main building. It's a shame because the set design and puzzles were amazing and during the time that we were able to see clearly, we had a lot of fun. I would imagine being there in person would be even scarier with a room full of broken and creepy looking dolls. The puzzles were also quite innovative as we've seen most of them before used in escape rooms but they were utilized in a different way or had an added "feature".
Puzzle Room Escape Game has another remote game called " CSI: Operation Russia" and that one should have better Wifi signal since it's inside the main building. We really hope they will be able to resolve this issue soon as it's definitely a room a remote escaper would enjoy. But if you have a little patience and connect with only 2-3 logins, you should still be able to free the victim in time!
