It has been a while since our last escape game. This time, we were quite determined to save nature, and in turn, save humanity.
This Escape Game was a little different. Unlike the usual locked-room escape games we were used to, this was held at the Gardens by the Bay, and we had to run around to gather the needed clues. At the same time, there was no designated slot (unless you signed up for Time Attack!), you just came when the game opened, during any time you want.
I cannot divulge anything with regards to the clues given because it just takes the fun out of everything. It’s a bit like a fun exam – if you don’t know how to get about to solving it, try another angle. “Cheating” just puts a damper on everything.
That being said, I enjoyed this version through and through. While the puzzles were still enjoyable, the action of running around in a bigger area adds to the excitement. Therefore, it felt like escaping was not just a game, it was imperative.
For those who were curious about our results, I think this picture says it all:
One of the volunteers gave us a snippet, telling us that this setting was just a test-run for something bigger. I’m not going to say much, but watch out for what REG in Singapore have in June 2015!
Note: LAST GARDEN will be running until the 22nd of February.
