Agent Crimson and MrQ have destroyed the Alpha Brain System, but not before Professor BlackSheep managed to escape. But the Professor no longer needs that old piece of machinery. He’s now setting his sights on a new vision, Humanity 2.0, a world order where humans only have access to the intelligence they deserve.

Causing another exciting ripple in the play at home escape room industry, Cluequest’s final chapter in the Agent Crimson saga is here! If you’ve been following the story so far with Stolen IQ and Alpha Brain System, you’ll not be disappointed with Humanity 2.0.
There’s something so absolutely innately charming about Cluequest’s world. If you’ve played at least one of Cluequest’s real life games, you’ll know what I mean. In a world populated by scientist mice, evil sheep, and a hapless human population to save … The possibilities for adventure are endless. Once again you join Mr Q and go up against the nefarious Professor Blacksheep. This time, you’ll meet a surprising familiar face too.
In terms of puzzles, Humanity 2.0, just like it’s two predecessors really pushes the boundaries of what is possible. As a player, I don’t get the impression (like many other games out there) that a puzzle has been shoe-horned into the play at home format. No, each puzzle feels completely at home in the printed format. They’re effortlessly unique and creative. Assemble a laser maze? No problem. A 3-dimensional wire solving puzzle? Amazing. Creating and assembling a paper jacket? Flawless.
It’s really hard writing a review for a game I enjoyed SO MUCH. I just want to shout and rave about all the brilliant things … And there are so many of them! But equally, the game is full of “wow” moments, I don’t want to spoil a single second of it for any interested player out there!
So… I’ll just end this review by saying without a doubt in my mind, the ClueQuest series of play at home games are some of the best quality, most exciting and all rounder games on the market today.
Humanity 2.0 can be purchased for £12 on ClueQuest‘s website.
