“Well, it looks like our time travelling days might be coming to an end; we’re down to the last crystal that powers our time engine! We’re usually in touch with some space age time travelers from the future that will send a couple of crystals back now and then (nice of them right?), but we’ve not heard from them in a while… Luckily we have just enough power left to send you to the future to find out what’s going on for us and hopefully snag a couple of crystals on the way!”

Mary looked great, from the moment we entered the room the immersion was thrown at us 100%, from the set decoration to the sounds the room was decorated with the utmost attention to detail.
The space was large and the lighting is excellent throughout. There is an element of crawling within the game.

Game Play:
A linear game, with observation, skill, physical, word, searching, communication, & logic puzzles. There was no stone left unturned when it came to puzzles in this game!
MARY hits the nail on the head with its balance of narrative, puzzles, fun, games and (for want of a better word) banter. The puzzles are not the main focus, yet serve to drive the game forward and steer us closer to our end goal.
This game was really one of those rare games that was just a combination of excellent segments coming together to create something that was even better than the sum of its parts.
The puzzles were all sublime and clear in their logic, with absoloutely no ambiguity
The interactivity within the puzzles and tasks through the game ranged from clever to silly and everything inbetween. There was a humour within the room that gave the whole game a distinctive tongue in cheek feel, which just added to the sheer joy in this room.
The signposting was excellent, with it being clear and always steering the game in the right direction.
Flow was fast paced, fun and frolicing. There was never a dull moment in this game.
Most of all this game is FUN. A game which we came out of with the biggest smiles on our faces, thoroughly entertained and we laughed all the way through. This is a MUST play game!

Clue System:
Russell… I’m saying no more about Russell… well, I will say he is SASSY, hilarious and not what you would expect!

Game Host:
Steve was our gamehost, delivering a great brief with an incredibly dry sense of humour. He delivered excellent clues throughout the game.

Did we escape?
Yes, in about 45 minutes
