Pressure Point – Murder on the Dance Floor
Game Date: 19/07/2019
Team: Amy & Ian
“Its 1978 and your evening at the 2P’s nightclub has ended in disaster! You hear rumours that the ‘King of Groove’ has been murdered!
With all your belongings inside, there is no way for you and your friends to get home. You find another way in and you can’t help but have a snoop around. Your curiosity gets the better of you.
What you are about to find inside is not groovy…”
MOTDF was in a word, groovy! Starting off in an unexpected back ally, the set was finished to a high standard with a charming feel, you can tell that the owners really put their heart and soul into bulding their rooms.
Once in to the main disco area of the room is where the game really got going and it looked GREAT. With a real dancefloor, bar and even a cloakroom! There was nothing in the room that could have been miscontrued as a red herring and this gave a clean look to the room, yet there was still enough detail and decoration to create a wonderfully immersive atmosphere.
The room was large, definetely large enough for the max team size, and well lit.
Pressure point put a lot of detail into the story of MOTDF and it really pays within the game to take note and pay attention to this story.
A fairly open game with plenty of variety and interest in the puzzles. Puzzles consisted of (light) physical, logic, observation, searching, deduction. Logic and observation were the mainstays of this room and this fitted the theme perfectly.
All puzzles were highly on theme and intrinsic to the theme, this aided in story delivery and immersion within the room.
The logic was perfect, and from the get go there was an excellent feeling of security in the excecution of the puzzles and the delivery of the answers.
This clarity can be rare and it is incredibly rewarding for the player when it is there in spades.
Each and every puzzle had lovely ah-ha moments and most of all they were fun, and in theme to the room.
There was a great sense of discovery through the puzzles and at one point there are some wonderful easter eggs that seasoned escapees will REALLY appreciate!
The flow was wonderful, smooth and fuss free, with each puzzle effortlessly leading to the next creating a pacey, yet never rushed game.
Signposting was perfect, some of it was subtle, and some a bit more noticable but each was placed for good reason, and it never failed to steer our game without ever feeling like our hands were being held.
Pressure Point create excellent, family friendly games that are perfect for beginners, and experienced alike. With heavy empahsis on story and ambience, MOTDF will not fail to entertain you, amuse you and give you an excellent, quality hour of escaping, puzzle solving fun.
