Bonus Episode: Hypotheticast Plays The Speakeasy

Back in 2018 the lovely people over at Hypotheticast got in contact with us to see if they could play one of our escape games as an episode of their show. We of course said yes, and they released a fantastic playthrough of our second episode: Saving Razorface.

And now it's 2019, so please enjoy this strange, layered, podception episode in which we host an episode of another podcast's version of one of our podcasts...

Descent of the Cullodens - Chapter 8 - I want to go on the yard work simulator! ft. The Infinite Escape Room

Groundskeeper Willie? No, I'm his cousin, Gravedigger Billy.

With the revelation of last chapter, Bill the historian is eager to find out the last secrets these "ghosts" are hiding. With renewed zeal and two new Cullodens, it's time to enter the manor and get to the bottom of this.

Our Cullodens enter the manor, only to quickly exit again and find themselves in the garden outside. With a gravelly ghost, some hated apples, and some rather dangerous plant life, these puzzle solvers will have their hands full.
