Background story:

I've been here for...I don't know how long it's been. There are no clocks and no windows in my small room. Every time I wake up, I leave a mark on the wall.

There are 206 marks.

I'm alone in my cell, but not the only captive here. We speak to each other through the walls. None of us knows why we're here, but our last memories before waking up here are the same: we were interviewing for a job, gas filled the room we were waiting in, and then...we woke up here. Wherever here is.

I'm the only one with some hazy memories: I was strapped to an operating table surrounded by masked people quietly talking over me.

All I know is they've been testing something on us. I have needle punctures and suture scars all over my body. So far, no one has felt much difference except for occasional vomiting and dizziness.

I'm ready to give up. There is no way out, no way to get help from outside. We don't have any control over our lives; we can't keep ourselves awake, we can't even kill ourselves.

Everything has changed. We woke in alarm from Steven's shouting. I don't know what happened to him, but he lost his mind. Security ran in as Steven escaped from his cell. The guard opened fire but Steven was an unleashed beast and smashed the guard's head against the wall and fled. I heard a lot of noise outside and a lot of yelling, then dead silence.

I was shocked trying to figure out what happened. How did Steven get out of his cell? How did he survive the point blank gunshot?

Not did I have any clue, the alarm went off. "Code red, code red, all personel evacuate from your labs immediately, the research center will self-destruct in 75 minutes."

After calming down, I now realise this is it: our only chance of getting out of here. Or die.

PLAYERS REVIEWS

Quite a realistic experience!
I’ve been to a fair amount of escape rooms and the storyline, puzzles, codes of this place made the most sense to me. I tried the one where we were locked up for human experiments. The settings and props made me feel that we are indeed trapped in a lab and we had to find clues to get out. Even prison clothing was provided! The clues are just like an actual lab where there are security passcodes, access badges, fingerprints etc. It’s logical and practical. I’ve been in escape rooms with puzzles that I have no idea why I’m solving for, and this place is not one of them.
It was a challenging and fun experience. Kudos to the designers! I’ll come back for the other themes they offer at this place.

I’ve been to quite a few escape games in GTA. This is the most special one. It tests your teamwork and creative thinking. Highly recommended to players who are looking for some real challenges instead of just scaring scenes.

I've been to 3 Room Escape games in the GTA area so far, and this one was the best and really impressive!!! It combined physical and intellectual challenges and at the end of the game, we're exhausted but still excited! It was so much fun! It required real teamwork and I strongly suggest there be some physically strong members in the group otherwise it'll be really difficult. But don't get scared! Not everyone of the team needs to face the physical tasks and that's what I meant-- Teamwork!! I strongly recommend this place!!
