Professor Prank is about a guy who loves to play pranks on other people. However, this has been relatively unsuccessful. His jokes don’t go over very well, which explains his meagre fan following. To change that, he is now broadcasting his Pranks as a live stream event, hoping to increase his fan base. His next prank victim is his former science teacher, Dr. Baxter, and he is set to take out his revenge for the poor grades he received for his academic performance. To do this, he sneaks into Baxter’s private laboratory and has come up with a few fooleries for him. He also wants to find out what the professor’s mysterious plan omega is all about.
I like new ideas. This is a topic that we haven’t had before and that is very suitable for a live video escape room. Professor Prank is an example of how a remote game can be upgraded through a dedicated avatar performance, and that in this format you can do some things that are not possible in a live escape game. Solve Entertainment makes use of these possibilities in Professor Prank in several ways, which has contributed a lot to the amusement of the players. In addition, the Avatar gave everything for an hour. Sometimes a little over-motivated when it comes to the volume of his statements. But always entertaining and funny.
In terms of decoration, the game is certainly nothing special. A scientific laboratory with the usual equipment for escape rooms. What sets the game apart from other remote escape games, however, are the entertaining interactions with the avatar. His emotions and the euphoria with which he wants to play pranks on the professor. In addition, each of us got a mini-role from him, and thus had to perform special actions during the game.
The puzzles were ok so far and fit the topic. I especially liked a few nice gimmicks that were necessary to complete certain tasks, but which certainly only work in a remote game. We had fun with Professor Prank, who made it into our recommendation list! Pranksters forever! Solve Entertainment is working on another avatar game and we’re looking forward to it.
