Discover something that will change the course of history, but how?

Room theme: Sci-Fi

You have been tasked to find out what has happened to a stranded Tayson Research Vessel ship just off Mars.

You soon realise that what you have discovered will change the course of history, but in which way?

You must choose your path and the path of all humanity for better… or worse!


…the room was superb. The decor was brilliant, it really helped with the immersion. A lot of work has gone into this room! The puzzles were challenging, but logical and again perfect for the theme. The story itself is very well put together. Some great sci-fi touches!

The difficulty of this game says 5 Stars, how hard is this?

There is no universal difficulty rating, but out of all of Cryptology Nottingham, Barnsley and Sheffield games, this is certainly the most taxing. There is no complicated maths or anything, but there is a LOT to do, and because this is a futuristic spaceship, there’s many new things to see and do.

What is the time limit for this game?

You have an hour (sixty minutes) to complete this challenge.

Is this suitable for children?

We have not designed this to be scary, nor age-restrictive. Children accompanied wth adults are very welcome.

I’ve not watched a lot of sci fi, will this make it difficult for me?

No prior knowledge is required, we have included some shout-outs to many of the big sci-fi shows/films, but if the references are lost on you it does not inerfere with the gameflow.
