Finally, we’ve scraped together enough money to purchase a submarine for our expedition. No longer will we be desk biologists, but get to dive deep into the ocean. We take the plunge! All is going swimmingly until that somewhat necessary air filter stops working. It’s too late to hire a mechanic now, maybe we can restart the sub. Anybody remember how to do that?
A lot of escape room back stories feel contrived, or out-of-place, yet somehow this one feels real. Struggling marine biologists trying to find purpose buying a cut-rate submarine that breaks down. The 60 minute time limit is tied to something real as well: running out of breathable air.
While the room definitely doesn’t feel like a submarine, I find the layout suitable. There are some portal windows, piping, and ancient equipment to use.
