Do you need a new online escape game to play? I’ll share my experience with The Panic Room Clue Kingdom: The Enchanted Forest. It is the first chapter in a six-part series.
How To Play
Getting started is super easy. One person will need to purchase a copy of the game for the entire team. After paying, you’ll get emailed a website and password for the team to use.
The Panic Room lists this game as for up to six players, but there is no limit on how many people can join. But a team of two to six would be best.
If everyone isn’t in the same room, you’ll also need to use a voice chat program like Zoom or Discord so the team can communicate. If separated, each person will also need access to a computer and the internet.
Clue Kingdom: The Enchanted Forest (Spoiler Free Review)
Clue Kingdrom: The Enchanted Forest is perfect for people who love the fantasy genre. The story is you enter a forgotten fantasy land and need to save it from the evil wizard Avibarin.
In each chapter of the game, you’ll travel to a different location, such as a fairy village, a hidden temple, dwarven mines, and a towering spire.
I found the game very refreshing; as compared to so many other online escape rooms, you aren’t dealing with a spine-tingling theme of a serial killer. I hate the horror genre and would love to see more escape rooms instead of using a magical fantasy theme.
The story in this game is straightforward and easy to follow. As it progresses, you’ll get to watch videos with handy captions underneath. I also appreciated you’ll always know what you are supposed to solve next, even if you can’t determine the answer right away.
Each step, you’ll have one puzzle and will need to enter the password at the bottom of the page to progress to the next step. But if you are ever stuck, you can click on the hint button. If you are still unable to solve the puzzle after the hint, you can also click to get the answer so you can continue playing.
Overall I found the puzzles relatively easy in difficulty, and it took our team of 4 nearly an hour to complete everything.
Once done, there is also a cute video to celebrate your victory and remind you to head on to chapter two.
Priced at £15 (approximately CAD 26) per team, it only costs a few dollars per person. I found the price remarkably affordable for an hour of entertainment for a group of people.
While some elements felt slightly repetitive, the happy and beautiful world you explore in the game is what I crave in online escape rooms. Our team enjoyed the experience so much; we’ve already paid for the second chapter.
