An hour inside a Project Escape room may feel like one of the fastest of your life, for a few reasons. Primarily that's because you'll be racing against the clock, trying to solve puzzles and find clues so you can make your way out before your 60 minutes expire. But it's also because you just may find yourself absorbed by the intricate plot, conveyed with the help of professional voice actors.
Project Escape's first scenario, The Heist of the Century, casts players as highly skilled thieves recruited to steal one of the most famous gems in the world for their employer, the Shrouded Hand. Unfortunately, the diamond's owner is the Viper, one of bosses of the Syndicate, a rival theft ring with a reputation for ruthlessness. Teammates are tasked with breaking in, stealing the diamond, and finding their way out before the Viper and his henchmen return in a bad mood because they had trouble parking.
