Phobos-17 has landed – Mostly Harmless Games

Mostly Harmless Games returns with a new game Phobos-17 which is the sequel to their The Lifeboat escape room.

Phobos-17 is an abandoned Russian vessel which can be found hidden within the Artworks in Elephant & Castle.

The rumour has it that there is some high grade uranium on board Phobos-17 but the shipping container is full of radiation so brave hunters will only have 60 minutes to retrieve it or risk getting radiation sickness.

Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless was created by a bunch of actors, designers and games nerds who met at Crystal Maze experience.

Their first project was The Lifeboat which set sail earlier on this year at the Vaults Festival with it being a sell out towards the end of it’s run and bagging an award for Innovation along the way.

Phobos-17 is a continuation of that journey all packed with thrills in a twelve metre long shipping container! Continue reading
