Immercity: Dead Quiet

Immercity latest murder mystery Dead Quiet is about a murder which took place back in 1962 after a lecturer at a Library.  It is up to guests to put the ghosts of the past to rest.

The question is who was killed, why and who done it?

Immercity Dead Quiet

“After we watched all the events unfold, we were given an opportunity to get back together in our groups and brief each other on what we had witnessed, to prepare for a chance to speak to the ghosts of the past to hopefully unravel this mystery and find out what actually happened and why.”

Escape London Wizards and Wiazrdary

If you love escape rooms and anything to do with Witches and Wizards then you’ll love this magical room.  Will you though magically be able to conjure your way out of the room before the mad wizardary professor returns?

“With us being new students and not having learnt any spells or witchcraft as yet we could not magically conjure up any spells to unlock the door to escape and we certainly did not want to be turned into a frog that’s for sure as otherwise our blogs would just have the word ribbit, ribbit, ribbit. So the hunt for clues to escape was on.”
