Mission Brief

New to Print+Cut+Escape, and a first for any play at home escape game, hide a personalised message into the game to remind your friends or significant others how much they mean to you, and teach MM7 about the heart in the process! Mechanics of the Heart shows love to our planet with the fewest printed pages, while not compromising on the volume of puzzles. The timing of this new mission aligns perfectly with Valentine's Day, but its story and how it brings you closer to those you love will stand the test of time.


Mr. and Mrs. Q's helpful and reliable reconnaissance droid, MM7, is starting to ask questions all robots inevitably ask, “What is Love?” and “How do you know you're loved?” You'll be tasked to help MM7 decipher the complex and puzzling ways of love in our world in order to help focus him on our daily mission to save the world from the villainous network of the Evil Professor.

Great fun coding game. My partner loved deciphering the clues. The knock knock was hard but good to have some help when needed.

Great home time experience

Challenging and fun! Great to play with bg music to set up some ambience. Glad no one was watching us as we took a while. XD

extremely fun!!!!!!!!!!

Mechanics of the Heart is extremely recommended. We had such a fun "ride" at the last puzzle! Although I have some help from my mum -_- Good job developers


Great fun and a full evening of brain-strain! It's the right level of challenge without making it impossible

Love wins!

Perfect amount of time given, some parts were challenging and it was great that working with our other half we could work them out. We had a lot of fun and would recommend to others.

Fun valentines experience

Very nice valentines gift. It took us about 1 hour to get through the first part and the rest of the game took us another hour. We didn't need to use clues. Overall good game.

Lie Down Now ...

Up to their usual standard. Mind-bending, funny puzzles. Didn't beat the 1-hour goal, but who cares??

Fun and enjoyable but a bit inconsistent

As with all of the ClueQuest puzzles my 8 year old daughter and I have played so far, we had a great time. The mechanics are fun, interesting, and require generally just the right amount of head-scratching to get through. This one was a little inco... more

Perfect personalized puzzles

Puzzles were creative, not as difficult than in others, but given that most will be playing this over wine, that's probably good. They were fun. The level of personalization was higher than it has been in past CQ puzzles, which was lovely. Also there... more

Valentines Fun - something different

Lovely valentines present. It was fun spending the evening working out clues together. Great way to spend the evening

family fun

over the Christmas holidays we spent a lovley rainy afternoon with Clue Quest, as always .... such a fun family activity


Lots of fun, the whole family got involved. We've played a few of these and loved this one. We finished it in 1 and a half hours

A fun thing to do at home, but a bit limited by home-printing

A fun and different set of puzzles, we enjoyed spending a couple of hours working through them.
However, it relies on quality/accuracy of home printing (and cutting!) a little more than is ideal - some puzzles we understood but couldn't see the deta... more

Really a fun experience!

Best online escape game I played! Love that you can add personalized messages and the variety of methods and interactivity!

Great fun for a couple

Inventive puzzles with quite a few nice options to customize the outputs for couples. Good hints as well.

good fun

Really great fun for the whole family! Everyone enjoyed themselves, and the variety of puzzles meant that you had to think in lots of ways. Very enjoyable for the family. Would recommend. We love you ClueQuest xxxxxxxxxxx
