“The Wexell Corporation has sent you and your team to investigate their ex-employee, Dr Rhyar Lafayette, who has been using company funds for research into the occult. Your mission is to investigate his Voodoo Emporium and report back to Wexell, but beware, there is more to Dr Lafayette than meets the eye, and if he captures you, it may be impossible to escape.”

Themeing was nice, immersive and finished to a good standard, there were plenty of wonderful touches and “easter eggs” hidden within the room which we didn’t notice on first sight but really appreciated them when told about them at the end.
The use of space was excellent, with a large area to play in and roam about. The room was immersive and had good ambient sound to compliment the theme.
Lighting was excellent and there was no problems.
A few creative Disney inspired moments in this room really put the cherry ontop of the cake.

Game Play:
A linear game that compromised of communication, observation, logic, searching, & physical puzzles. All puzzles were wonderfully on theme, exceuted with precision and elegance.
The puzzles were all sound in their logic, with excellent ah-ha moments and no ambiguitey.
Signposting was excellent, and it was clear where we needed to go and what was needed from us.
Flow was excellent, a perfect combintaiton of elegant puzzles and  excellent signposting.
A really enjoyable and creative, yet clear game.
