So you think you’re a regular (or irregular) Sherlock? Fancy that you can solve just about any mystery and your wits are sharper than a Ginsu knife? Well put your skills to the test at Freeing SG and escape in 45mins.
Based on the popular “Freeing HK” model – the first reality room escape game in Hong Kong – Freeing SG gives players the experience of a lifetime as they rack their brains to escape a “real-life” situation. Inspired by virtual “Escape Room” video games and web-based browser games, Freeing SG takes the experience further by immersing players in a physical reality to solve puzzles first hand.
“Singaporeans find life too boring, too pressured, too dull, too monotonous. They need a bit of entertainment to escape this life. Freeing SG is like being inside of a movie or a video game – a great way to break out from boring old activities”
Mr. John Teng, GM of Freeing SG
I have to admit, my team did not complete within the time limit… and there were quite a few more puzzles to go as well. The puzzles are not impossible but not exactly plain to see as well. There’s a good mix of what you can take literally and what’s conceptual.
Freeing SG’s current line up of four rooms – The Unforseeable Pyramid, Slilent Blood, Mission Incredible and the Painter’s Murder – will be expanded gradually in batches to a total 10 rooms by the end of October. Players will get to choose themed environments like horror or others where they have to solve a mysterious crime. Freeing SG will also have a dedicated Research and Development team to constantly update its entertainment offerings.
All in all it’s a great way to pit your analytical skills and teamwork. If you do finish it in time… hats of to you. Well done… it’s no simple feat.
