The Sands of Time
We’ve already met Anubis on several occasions, but as we shared with our hosts, one still has tag #thebottom on this site as and the other is Offline, which means it’s one of our all-time favourites.
I will not lie to you, the moment we entered the pyramid, everything is so cleverly hidden that it leaves the feeling of simplicity and lack of gameplay. As usual, I was wrong about this. Most of the puzzles in this room are mechanical, the kind of “push something here for something to happen there” or as I call them “traps”, which for any fan of the adventure genre will be more than fascinating. The room was created with a lot of skills and aimed for authenticity (my admiration for the courage), and the unique way of going out gives you the adrenaline rush.
Also, this room wins the competition for “most interesting and authentic hints mechanics” in the world. Even if the system itself is slow, it is absolutely impressive, congratulations! All is left to say is that we escaped for 30:00 minutes with one hint. Here is a little hint from me to all future teams who will visit “look on the walls for what has no place in the hot Egypt” (although this day in Plovdiv was like in Egypt, how the hell do you live in this city), it will not show you the way, but it will make you smile.
Our hosts also entertained us while we travelled to Plovdiv with a puzzle on their Facebook wall. We solved it and won a 20% discount, thanks for both – the puzzle and the opportunity.
