In celebration of the "Truth Seeker" show that will be premiering on October 30th on Amazon Prime Video, The Escape Game created this 45 minute remote escape game that you can play from the comfort of your homes for free (for a limited time). We are big fans of Simon Pegg and a series with a paranormal story line was just icing on the cake.
We were excited to be invited to attend the VIP preview event for press only. As we've done many games by "The Escape Game" (both at their physical location and remotely), we are very familiar with the format of their game design and operations.
This one was no different than the others. We were given an intro video by Elton and Gus informing us that we must help them to restore 6G signal at a museum in Meymouth and recover the artifact (Praecepta Mortuorum book) that's causing the disruption. A separate inventory portal was given to us to be used alongside the Zoom video feed. Our game host Kyle was in charge of keeping the inventory portal in order for us. Any item that needed a closer look was put into the inventory and anything we've used already or was no longer needed were removed immediately. There was also a game guide that acted as our agent in the field. We are able to inform him/her on what was needed to be examined, opened, closed, etc...You can even hear some of the characters from the series talking to you throughout the game!
After successfully gaining access to Dr. Peter Toynbee’s office, we were given a 360 view of the room. This 360 view was also able to be accessed in the inventory system. This allowed players to be able to search and solve different puzzles at the same time. The puzzles were not too difficult and we had a nice flow throughout the game. Our team proudly finished in 26 minutes and 23 seconds. Normally we like to keep remote play to 4 people as it could get confusing with people talking over one another but since this is a free event, The Escape Game is allowing booking for up to 8 people per game. In this case, it might help to designate a team leader to shoutout the codes.
If anyone has played "The Heist" remotely before at The Escape Game, you might be at a slight advantage with solving puzzles in this game. The set design and puzzles were redesigned with different props to fit the story line but you'll definitely recognize the secret doors and areas that would have unlocked in "The Heist" game. Regardless you should still take advantage of another well orchestrated adventure by The Escape Game, especially when its FREE! Since we haven't watch the series yet, we're unsure of the Easter Eggs that were put into the game but I'm sure we'll be on the lookout when we watch the show on Oct 30th!
(If you do decide to try this game, give us a shoutout or tag us on social media so we know you heard it from "ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
