When looking at the trip schedule, it’s usually easy to predict which games will be the highlights, the memorable and great rooms that will stand out.
I must admit, neither of us expected Bites Motel to be one of those. However, we realized our mistake instantly, as we entered the venue.
First of all, the lobby is mind blowingly awesome, and perfect for the room.
The room is definitely impressive. Its size is great, and its puzzles are simply fantastic, a few of them are some of my favourite ones I’ve seen in a short while. The horror aspect of Psycho, on which the room is based, isn’t really there, allowing non-horror fans to enjoy the game too. Which reminds me, kudos to the game master, whose role in the game is great, and falls on the perfect spot between entertaining and slightly disturbing.
I will say that we felt like the flow of the game sometimes felt a bit broken, and found ourselves quite a few times not sure how to progress or what our next goal is, which in the size of the room, is quite challenging.
That said, the room was definitely a great one, that we’ll definitely be one of my main highlights of the Madrid part of our trip.
