I played Curse of the Dark Raven in a group of five, and we had a lot of fun! I communicated with John over email prior to booking the game, and he answered all of my group's questions. We asked about enabling/disabling Zoom features and whether they had any impact on the games. He replied back with suggestions in case we wanted to turn off our video. Just so you know, chat is enabled so you can use that to take notes if you wish.Amy
Our host was friendly and patient throughout the experience. (If you're excitable like I am, you might want to mute yourself when the host is speaking. ) As another reviewer stated, the host is basically a live narrator who describes the setting and the consequences of your actions.
The graphics were pretty simple, but they got the job done! If you are a millennial, you might find them nostalgic. The puzzles were solvable, but it is highly recommended that you have something you can write on or with. Honestly, I wouldn't have been able to solve them on my own within the time limit, but that's par for the course for me in escape rooms. We actually made it in with a couple of minutes to spare, so it was time well spent. Most of the group wasn't paying attention to the time because they were having fun.
I would recommend trying out their virtual escape rooms if you are looking for a good time.
