Smart Room – Other World – 7.5/10
The world as we know it has changed. We don’t talk to each other like we should. We are only online now and more and more often can only be found on the web.
From now on you are offline.
Also, we’re not that active with each other anymore. We pay far too little attention to what is happening around us. There are so many people who need our attention and help and we don’t act. Do you know how hard it is to live with a handicap? Today you will have the opportunity to understand and think about it. You have 90 minutes to do this.
Played January 2023
We all had pretty conflicting views about this room. Some of the other members of the team weren’t sure what this game was trying to do. Personally, I think it achieved exactly what it sets out to do, to give you a brief experience of a handicap, be that blind or deaf.
You start together, split up in the middle, and come back together at the end. I thought it was pretty cool. We used our new and improved split of AE v DRK. There were some great, very logical puzzles in this room, there were some games that other people might find fun but just really frustrated us, and there were some puzzles that were just difficult because of a handicap. It was a real mixed bag, but there were an awful lot of puzzles to do. It’s a 90 min room and it’s full on.
Personally, I enjoyed it, and it can easily accommodate 6 people.
