I just saw WEMs video and as an escape room fan (real ones and boardgames) i would love to know more about Unlock.

Will Unlock really only have cards and finding numbers + combining them or are there other objects to interact with like small puzzles etc?

Are they replayable by others or only once and never again as something will be folded or cut out?

W Eric martin. It is on the bgg (board game geek) front page and their youtube account.

I love these types of games. The ones from Kosmos are my favorite so far, but I cannot wait to try these out as well.

Christian,

I'm not seeing the video. I went to find it on YouTube, but no luck.

I found a W. Eric Martin, whose page has game videos, but only five, and none were about "Unlock!".

1) Is that the right name? "W. Eric Martin"?
2) Did you mean this video is on the BGG front page, or a link to WEM is?
3) Did you actually mean the BGG front page, or the main page for this game?

Basically: Where's this video?!



Cheers,
MJ

Hey all, we played a demo of this back at GenCon and I confirm (as of what we played) it's just cards and an app.

The deck is 60 or so cards, the backs of them are numbered (not 1-60, but numbered from 1-100 or so).

The app has a feature to "enter a code" that allows you to do some puzzle-type things. I don't want to give anything away from the demo in case it makes it into the training scenario, but the puzzles were not dissimilar to some of the lighter TIME Stories puzzles. The puzzles take place entirely on the cards; you have to figure out what the correct result would be and then enter it into the "enter a code" input on the app. Correct code gives you a good result, and an incorrect code likely gives you a penalty!

We talked about our demo playthrough on our podcast (under the working title "59:59 Project") in this episode:

#26: Gen Con 2016 wrap-up and Interviews with Jamey Stegmaier & Sun King Brewing

...if you're interested in more details!

Anyway, it's awesome and I'm so glad this thing is coming out next year!

Well i'll give it a try. But so far nothing has beaten the kosmos exit rooms for me. Not Stargaze Manor nor noris escape the room the game.
So hopefully there will be more meat on the next ones.

Agreed! Kosmos were the most enjoyable for us but I have some faith in Unlock!

Have the Kosmos Exit Room not been printed in English yet? This is the first I've heard of them and after a quick search it seems as if they are only in German?

The EXIT titles from KOSMOS will be released in English in 2017 by Thames & Kosmos, the North American branch of the company.

This one was way too easy (probably more for kids), took us only 30 minutes and we probably could have been a lot faster

The Kosmos ones where really cool, because they had some unorthodox ways to solve stuff.

What I like about Unlock (only read through the tutorial) is that it tells you which cards to discard, like in Adventures where you loose used items, to keep things clean, so you always know what you still be needing. I'm looking forward to this. As it is not destroying, getting used games, should also be possible.

Can you be a little more specific which game? I'm not sure you guys are talking about the same one here?
