“Artephius is the most powerful alchemist of the kingdom of Occitany. Some say he is 200 years old… Could he have discovered the elixir of eternal life ? Join a brotherhood of adventurers and prepare to face the mysteries of time. Will you manage to reveal the secret of the alchemist ?”
|Game experience: GOOD|
|This is a classical room, but a solid one, with good quality materials and cool mechanisms. Most puzzles are classical (with one very cool exception in the second room), so I would not necessarily recommend the room to highly experienced gamers; but for people who have played less than 10-15 rooms (which is still a huge majority of the public out there), there should be enough novelties. It should also delight all those who enjoy a challenging searching process!|
Nice decors, with good quality materials
An immersive situation at the end of the adventure
A simple scenario and classical theme
A quite challenging searching process
The communication challenge at the start of the game
A very fun manipulation in the second half of the game
Most puzzles were relatively classical
A very enthusiastic team
The gamemaster gave us hints at the right time, making it challenging while avoiding it to become frustrating
Difficulty: The puzzles are not so hard, but the searching process is, so bring your hawk eyes!
Performance: Because of our poor searching performance, we barely escaped from the room, with only 1 minutes 37 seconds left on the counter, having used 3-4 hints.
Elsewhere in the Escape Galaxy: The theme reminded me of the now defunct Alchemist’s Challenge at Gamescape; but the room at L’Escaperie belongs to a newer generation and has therefore more elaborated mechanisms.
In French: Find the test of this room on the new platform Experience Immersive here.
