📖 THE STORY

You've been tracking a group of time bandits for a while now and today is going to be the day for you to travel back to 1889 to the Wild West and meet up with Butch Cassidy so you can catch them once and for all! Your mission is to bring back the objects that they left behind to attempt to change history. Time is of the essence and you only have one hour...

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • This is a unique "time travel" storyline that we haven't seen anywhere yet. The concept of time bandits leaving items in the past to try to alter the current world sounds like it can be made into a movie.

  • We love the little humorous introduction the GM made at the beginning before we were sent off into the time machine.

  • The items that they left behind also have some interesting history. If you are interested, ask the GM after the game.

  • Although this is a single room and smaller in size in comparison to some of their other rooms, there are quite a few surprising reveals that we discovered throughout the game.

  • The room has a good amount of puzzles that involve some tech but also traditional locks.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • One of the puzzles involves some outside knowledge of a game. The ordering also wasn't as clear. Perhaps either adding the rules of the game in the room or simplifying the prop used for that puzzle would clear up the confusion.

  • One of the clues given to inform a prop's location could be a bit more explicit.

  • The finale could have had a more conclusive ending. Perhaps we can put the three items somewhere and send them back to headquarters for confirmation?

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

I'm sure with more budget and space, this game could incorporate a bit more elements of "time travel" in it but we are still impressed by the current condition considering everything was built in-house. The puzzles might be on the easier side for enthusiasts but for most players, you'll still be faced with some obstacles. Instead of a typical Western saloon escape room, I much preferred the "Time Agent". The twist in the story made the game more mysterious and amusing for the players.
