Alien Encounter is the only game that I played at Clue Chase, but I have played many other escape games before. This room was one of the largest I've ever been in. The hint system is really unique and the puzzles are definitely imaginative and tech forward. My biggest problem with the room was that the clues were sometimes really vague and the game flow was almost all linear. So while the room can physically fit 12 people, there aren't enough simultaneous activities to keep that many people engaged. It's probably best with a total of 4-6 players.RP
It is July, 2053. We are being watched.
A powerful race of aliens from a distant galaxy has been observing mankind for untold centuries. They have now chosen to make their presence known. Are they an intergalactic ally and force of good, or a dangerous threat to our species and planet? Now, at the apparent instruction of these aliens, your core team of volunteers will be teleported to a final testing facility in space. You will have exactly one hour of earth time to pass their tests and prove that humanity deserves its place among the stars. The stakes couldn’t be higher. If you pass, their technology may offer unimaginable technological advances, but if you fail, it may mean the end of the human race.
