Description: “Tales of Escape” is a series of 6 person multiplayer escape room adventures for virtual reality or desktop pc! Gather your friends and choose a story to play! Fight against the clock to solve the puzzles and get out of the room as fast as possible or take your time to experience a unique story each time.
Review: I have to start this review by giving credit to ‘Tales of Escape’ for bringing something truly unique to the escape game genre and that is a multiplayer option for up to 6 people to play at once! That might sound crazy and believe me it is, but it also makes the tired escape room genre a little more exciting. It also looks pretty good in fact, with a dark horror element from start to finish.
Sadly when it comes to the puzzles themselves they are a little boring mostly consisting of the same old style. Then there are the extra costs for all the DLC which should have been a fraction of the cost they currently are, then throw in the fact that there is next to no other people playing this and you have yourself a great idea that is sadly long been forgotten. But if you can get some friends together to play it, this is well worth a look.
