Investigate a killing spree and watch the case unfold.

Room theme: Murder Mystery

You and your digital team must investigate the murder of the great Sheffield crime investigator, Hugh Dunnitt. You must discover out why he was killed and who killed him.

Unlock all of the clues, find the motive for the murder, and help stop the next person being a victim. But be careful! There is something else afoot.

Investigate what’s happening on West Street in Sheffield from your PC, and you may become embroiled in a struggle for more than just the truth!


It was a refreshing game, and very entertaining. The puzzles are an the easier side but it was an interesting story, presentation, and implementation.


Is this game the same as the real, physical Escape Room?

It was our intention to replace the real-life game as much as possible. There are some tweaks we will have made to the game, but if you have played the real game, the content is largely the same. The reverse is also true, if you play this Digital Game much of the surprises of the real Escape Room will be in this game too.

How does this work?

Once you have paid for the game you will be sent a link to your email. You can send this link to up to 5 other players all on different devices so you can all play together. Once you have started the game you have 72 hours to complete it.

How many players?

For all of our Digital Games, we are recommending 2-6 players. We have tried to enable multi-player puzzles as much as possible, but it may be solvable on your own. With 6 mouse pointers on-screen, and we recommend you have a video call amongst yourselves, you may find it a bit hectic! We wouldn't recommend you go over 6 devices for the best enjoyment of the game.

Can I play on my mobile?

The short answer is yes. However, the game is really designed for a laptop or PC. It works via a web browser and works on PC, Mac, or Linux.

What if I get stuck?

You should be able to complete this unassisted. If you need some extra nudges or help, there is a built-in clue system.
