Are you up to the challenge??

Mission Brief

After a sneaky attack from an unknown assailant, Mr Q is trapped in a coma. With time running short it’s up to Mrs Q and Lord Hammerschmidt to dive into Mr Q’s mind and find a way to wake him up. But they can’t do it without your help!

A small step for a mouse, but a giant leap forward for Print+Cut+Escape, "Prison of Memories" has a number of advances and stylistic differences from the earlier games.

For a start - it's definitely our most challenging game yet. It also features our most digitally advanced puzzles yet - with new interfaces and new ways to interact with the online system. On top of that, we've made it more environmentally friendly, by reducing the number of printed pages that aren't used for puzzles (without skimping on our customary gorgeous artwork).


The story of "Prison of Memories" takes you on a deep dive into the history of clueQuest and the story of how our main characters became the people they are today. So if you're new to the world of clueQuest, you might want to consider starting out with our earlier missions (such as "Stolen IQ"). Knowing who the characters are won't help solve the puzzles, but you'll probably get a bit more out of the story - and that's always nice!

Truly fabulous puzzle heaven!

I am obsessed with these 'print-cut-escape' games. I started with the first one back in the thick of the pandemic - which was brilliant - and they're just getting better and better. This one was just phenomenal - the creativity and ingenuity that goes into making them is gobsmacking. Keep making them, and I'll keep buying them...!

Great puzzling fun

Managed to solve it without any clues! Some great mechanisms involved. We're pretty veteran escape roomers and keep on coming back for more ClueQuest puzzles!

great fun at home

fun game, again, but found chapter 1 very tricky. Challenging puzzles and fun elements for anyone to give it a go.

Good game until the last!

The zooming and control of the last puzzle was much to sensitive it was virtually impossible to use as it moved and zoomed much too fast. Other than that it was good!

Great idea but not the same standard as previous puzzles

I've enjoyed all the previous challenges but found this one rather difficult.Too many "let's find the symbol" type puzzles


**gnash gnash** Needs more seals. Delicious, delicious seals. **chomp**
I would also accept fish. Or swimmers...


Great fun but quite hard, but we got there in the end. Thanks to everyone at ClueQuest for coming up with a fun game.

Unique play at home puzzle game

This is a great game for detail oriented puzzle enthusiasts. It's a unique type of online play at home game. I've never seen anything quite like it.
