As with the other Remote Avatar games that we've done with The Escape Game company, this was a very well orchestrated experience.  We had the full attention of both the avatar, and a GM, and there was an excellent inventory system.  These rooms are expensive, but you can see why in light of the staffing and infrastructure involved.  I really wish I could have played this room in person, because the set was extraordinarily immersive, and some of the puzzles involved physical elements that didn't translate that well.  The puzzles were on the easier side, but the integration with the story was strong.  All in all a pleasant experience.

Crashing into the Amazon Jungle you have to enter the temple, get the treasure before the curse claims you.  A very high tech room with some clever puzzles throughout.

This is a great room (with the usual superb quality and excellent game mastering of The Escape Game) with by seamless automatic inventory management which I liked very much.

Reviews by escape room review sites

This room stands out above the rest on set design, but strong puzzles and a good inventory system make it pretty close to perfect. If you canโ€™t get to Nashville, get online now!

So, yeah, first things first, the room looked great. It's no wonder that some of my friends told me "I'd rather not play it remotely if I have a chance of playing it live some time". And yet... I don't think I feel any serious disappointment from my online session.

The lockdown was the opportunity to play the latest room at The Escape Game remotely. As many of you know by now, there has been quite a few of those remote-games opening lately. A gamemaster acts on your behalf in the room, while youโ€™re connected using some videoconference device. Here, an additional gamemaster will guide you and provide hints if necessary. On top of the video view, you have access to a dashboard containing a few important elements: a fish eye picture of the room youโ€™re in, and photos of all important elements you have found and not used so far.
