I can just hear the game audio, but cannot hear Jess and Jeff. The YouTube version has their voices.

EDIT: Voices are back now! Thanks Jess!

This looks cool, but after Jess explained that the puzzle solutions don't change, I stopped watching -- I'm going to play this and don't want to know all the solutions. I'll play it on Game Pass tomorrow! Maybe I'll come back to this video after I've finished the game, or at least gotten more than 30 minutes into it.

@mrlogical: This Quick Look only covers the first two escape rooms (the tutorial and the office), so you can come back after that.

You can brute force any lock with enough time :D Or a hammer :D but the escape room people don't like the hammer technique.

Nice quicklook y'all, looking forward to it on XBGP

No issues here using Chrome from the site. Also, this is on Gamepass (tomorrow as of this post).

This seems more like a adventuregame to me, the puzzles in this reminds me more of A normal adventuregame with puzzle, which Also is not a bad thing :)

I’d been looking forward to this game, but it’s a little unfortunate that it seems lackluster. I’ll still give it a shot because Game Pass.

I absolutely hate irl escape rooms that pride themselves on their difficulty. That and zombie-themed ones.

Turns out most of us don't actually know what gargoyles are. We usually get them confused with grotesques. One of my favourite childhood cartoons ruined!
