Tokyo Mystery Circus

Tokyo Mystery Circus is a venue that offers a wide range of games. The focus is on the puzzles, with only a few being escape rooms in the traditional sense.

Their newest attraction is a projection mapping game called The Magic Library’s Bizarre Encyclopedia, where up to five players sit around a table and solve puzzles to seal away escaped magical creatures. The premise is simple, but the integration of technology and funky visuals make it somewhat unique in the genre. The English language version of The Magic Library opens on December the 4th.

A far more orthodox game involves escaping from a prison cell with nothing but the handful of objects given to you. ‘Escape from the Prison’ is self-explanatory, with the entire escape game philosophy boiled down into a single ten-minute game. If you have never tried an escape game before, this is a great place to start.

The other English language game is based on Metal Gear Solid, replete with characters and technology from the series. Much like the video game, the objective is to sneak around and avert global catastrophe by finding keys and codes. Players are encouraged to interact with actors in order to complete their goals, adding a fun twist to the genre.

If you can speak Japanese there are many more games you can play, just make sure your Japanese is really good. Tokyo Mystery Circus is always updating their games so be sure to check online for availability.
