We received a series of emails from 1-OMEGA-1 a few days prior. This was a very different experience from other companies as most will sent you a confirmation with the zoom link and basically materials you'll need for game day. We enjoyed having some interaction with the character we're about to meet and the build up of the story. This also cut out the intro time the game master usually would need.
The intro video was very cinematic and made us feel like we were right there with Alice, our avatar for the game. Alice stood in the center of a well designed casino lobby and our game began. We enjoyed the high tech and special effects that were build into the game. At the same time, we also loved that we're able to use some basic deductive reasoning like a detective on a murder case. My favorite part was the twist at the end. We really felt the urgency of trying to help out avatar out of the "situation". It would've been great if she was able to interact a little more with us.
There was no inventory link for this game, instead you'll need to have a QR scanner in order to receive larger images of the inventory found. It was a bit inconvenient for us as some players as it didn't work for them. It was also hard to find previously scanned images on the phone tabs. We think with an added inventory list on the PC it would make the game flow much better. However this did not affect us from successfully completing the mission. The experience as a whole was quite enjoyable for all of us. The cinematic videos intermingled with the avatar's live actions really made this game felt REAL!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
