Kanyu Escape – Follow in my Footsteps. Game Date – 28/12/2017. Team: Amy & Ian
“You will be transported in time and across continents in search of the Secrets of South Lodge, with just one hour to follow the trail of clues to the amazing discovery of Sir Henry Cunningham.”
Another beautiful room from Kanyu, plush, regal and fitted out wonderfully. With more movie quality sets and complete immersiveness. A novel take on the “study” as this is more of a “private collection room” where the many lockers contain treats that will sometimes be seen, and more often remain hidden. Plush and decorated well, but this does not interfere with the game and nothing could be considered a red herring.
A large room, with good lighting. Which does become a little smaller in the latter parts of the game.
A game which weaves between open and linear, becoming more so as the game progresses. Puzzles were more standard escape room fayre; observation, logic, searching, & decoding were the mainstays, with a touch of physicality thrown in.
Lovely logical puzzles with seamless tech integrated into the story. All the puzzles were wonderfully solvable and had magical ah-ha moments that came swiftly.
The flow was wonderful, with every puzzle leading perfectly to the next and never feeling like we were wading through or getting stuck.
There was a definite sense of discovery throughout the game, but the most impressive part was how the story was woven through the puzzles, without ever feeling like we were just reading for no reason, the story and character development served to push the game, and plot along. Incredibly clever design, which served to created a brilliant foundation for the mythos of Sir Henry!
Enthusiasts will be fine in their normal team size. Newbies take 4-5 and enjoy the ride!
Clues were delivered via a screen
Bob was our host and was very warm & welcoming, he ran our game really well – he really helped us along with nudges and hints throughout the game. We absolutely can’t wait for room 3 and will be straight up to visit!
Did we escape?
