ESCAPE GAME REVIEW:
The Heist by The Escape Game: Unlocked – Game Subscription
Volume 1: Chasing Hahn
We were contacted by The Escape Game: Unlocked and asked if we’d be interested in playing their new game. Of course we said yes.
So, this is essentially our reaction video after playing the game, but we’ll be doing a comprehensive review post with ratings based on our new escape game rubric. Stay tuned!
Here is how the game plays: Your mission: as a team of detectives, you need to stop international art collector (and thief!), Vincent Hahn. He’s been stealing from museums over the years, and has always eluded capture. Now, you have a break in the case and need to piece together clues, gather evidence, and try and stop him before he strikes again.
Overall, this was a pretty fun game. It took us just over an hour with a small group of friends (we had 6 total in our group). The website that you needed to use to play the game was well designed (but – HINT – make sure you sign in with a user name and password that you’re willing to give the rest of your team so you can all be in the website at the same time… otherwise, there will be a lot of waiting around by some of you).
There were lots of things to look at, but the game is pretty linear, so you’ll need to be good at sharing and working together as a team as you progress.
We’re looking forward to Volume 2.
