Having tried and really liked Lab 33 on our last trip to Russia we had sky-high expectations on Koma, and absolutely loved it! I can't say which of the rooms I like more, as they are very different, but I really like the interior those guys have created in Koma. Once again we had an awesome game where every little detail was an integrated part of the story. I also love how well the guy who met us both times stays in character.
There was no English version of Koma yet so we had to do it in Russian (we were warned about this when booking the game), which worked surprisingly well seeing as my boyfriend doesn't speak a word of Russian. Simply put, Koma is not at all as language dependent as Lab 33, but you would of course need at least one person on the team who understands and can translate spoken Russian unless you want to wait for the English version.
For the (very) easily spooked like me: Be warned, while Lab 33 could feel a bit spooky at times, Koma is right out scary. Still fun and worth it, but I'm glad you don't play those games alone as I would so have run out of there in panic had I been there by myself.
And two final notes for future visitors:
- Have enough time to find the place and call them if you get lost, the place IS tricky to find. We managed to find the house but could not find the entrance although we were here just a few months earlier (we felt a bit stupid having to call about this, but better once we got out of the room in 40 minutes :P ).
- Do trust the staff when they tell you that there are a lot of things to trip over here, or you'll soon notice they weren't kidding.
To sum up, thank's for a great experience! I keep a rating of escape games and similar things we play on my website, and am still waiting to find a another company with as well worked-through games as Lab 33 : http://katja.klarre.se/adventuregames.html
