If you’re looking for an event on a day out in the centre of Bristol, I really must talk to you about Bristol’s own escape room experience, Locked in a Room. This weekend, Joel came down from Shrewsbury to join us for the weekend. Meanwhile Kim and Pete from Later Levels travelled from even further afield, so when they joined us as well, we had a team of genuinely excellent people. We may not have been the fastest in the building, but we certainly had fun. Whilst I won’t be spoiling what the story or puzzles were, I’ll share what I learned with you about the what, why and where.
Point & Click adventure games have been around for a very long time; indeed, some of the earliest big titles were of this genre. We’ve had the Monkey Island franchise, Grim Fandango, Broken Sword – And then we had the Mystery of Time & Space (MOTAS). Recently on our Discord channel, I got into a conversation with Jason from VidyaSauce, who was live streaming himself playing Elea – A new game that identifies itself as an Indie Adventure game. When I saw the sci-fi theme of the game, I was immediately brought back to MOTAS – A game that I and my family loved to bits.
