Locked In Glasgow: Christmas Dream

Few games have filled me with such unbridled joy as Christmas Dream. The structure of puzzles gives you confidence in searching the room, the bonus elements are a fun addition, and the room is absolutely gorgeous throughout. This may be a pop-up experience lasting just a few weeks, but it felt like a permanent game, and it’s a travesty that they built it for such a short period.
