Clue Chase has just revealed their latest breakthrough escape room product, “The Scarab’s Curse”.
The Scarab’s Curse is the latest offering from the Manhattan-based game company. Having specialized in in-person entertainment for the last five years, Covid presented Clue Chase with a unique challenge. How can the fun and excitement of an escape room be translated into a game that can be played remotely, while in isolation?
Clue Chase’s in-house team of game designers have spent the last eight months dedicated to solving this puzzle, and they are very pleased with what they’ve come up with. The transition to an online-only environment for this game has allowed them to present information to players in entirely new ways – utilizing the Unity engine to present video game elements, and a myriad of webpages, real and fake, for the players to delve into in order to solve the mystery.
The game takes place on the set of 1939 Hollywood’s latest blockbuster, “The Scarab’s Curse”. The lead actress has just been found murdered, and the producers believe a member of the crew may be to blame. In order to prevent public panic and a possible PR disaster, the producers have locked down the studio and hired a P.I. firm, which is where you come in. You and your team will take on the role of these private investigators,dig through the studio lot for clues, learn everything you can about the cast and crew, and apply that knowledge to solving the murder.
“The Scarab’s Curse” can be played with a team of up to four players, the total cost of the game is $40 (just $10 per player)! The game can be played remotely, using a client such as Zoom, or in person, with your pod or family. It should take roughly one hour to complete, and a system of clues is available to help players who may feel stuck. Only one person in your group needs to purchase access to the game, as that player will receive a set of codes to share with the other members of their team, enabling them to play. Access to a laptop or desktop, preferably with the Chrome browser, is also required.
