Discover this Escape Game

With a low-poly effect, the graphics are perfectly suited to the game. The narration remains simplistic, and is above all a pretext to solve puzzles in pairs. This is clearly the strong point of the game, its collaborative aspect with its directly integrated voice chat. The fact that one must constantly be aware of what the other is doing, often without being able to see it. We can only base ourselves on what he explains to us. And sometimes it’s complicated to clearly describe objects or actions. So, faced with many logic puzzles, it is better to be armed with patience with your partner.

Info:

  • Price: € 12.99
  • Duration: 3 hours (In practice, we should not be very effective, because we already have 5 hours of play, and we are only at the 3rd table)
