Review: Dystopia and Utopia - Make Your Escape, Derby

Introduction

This is the first time I’ve written a combined review for two rooms.

Not to mention a terrifying creature that pursued you around the room leaving you in perpetual fear. Aside from being constantly scared, I really enjoyed Edith and was looking forwa…
