Taking place in the gorgeous, hexagonal kingdom of Fahrul, players must strategically explore and battle their way through the fairytale, stylized landscape in a bid to discover and survive, lest they succumb to death.

The full list of updates can be found via the game's Steam page.

Along with these new realms comes two vast new dungeons, a brand-new playable character to unlock and plenty of fiendish traps. Plus over 20 new enemies and encounters, two new Scourges and a wealth of new weapons, armour and loot. For completionists, 10 new steam achievements are up for grabs.

Bewilder Box who host the UK's No.1 Escape Room experience, you can see some Trip Advisors reviews here, are back with a supercomputer voiced by Red Dwarf star Norman Lovett.

Red Dwarf star Norman Lovett to voice evil supercomputer in new immersive escape room, Judgement DAVE, opening in Brighton 3rd April, 2018

BRIGHTON, UK – 27th March, 2018: Bewilder Box Escape Rooms are delighted to announce that Red Dwarf’s Norman Lovett will star in its newest adventure, 'Judgement DAVE', opening in Brighton 3rd April, 2018.

Lovett, best known as Red Dwarf's senile computer Holly – a role to which he returned to late last year for the show’s twelfth season – will voice a mischievous and dry-witted supercomputer called The Masternet 9000 against which players will pit their wits to solve puzzles and complete challenges in a tongue-in-cheek science fiction story quite unlike anything else on the market.

Lovett, commented “The idea of combining puzzle solving and immersive theatre is an interesting concept and I really enjoyed working on the project! It was fun playing a more morally ambiguous artificial intelligence, The Masternet 9000 is full of himself – witty and bad!”

“From the moment we sat down to design the new experience, Lovett was the obvious choice to voice The Masternet 9000, we were delighted when he agreed to take part,” commented Dave Middleton co-founder of Bewilder Box Escape Rooms, “Holly from Red Dwarf is such an iconic character and Lovett’s dry, witty delivery is key to that. He’s the perfect person to add some humour to our newest game and we are sure players will find it an exciting, engaging and entertaining experience.”

Judgement DAVE is the second game from Bewilder Box Escape Rooms since it launched its first, called The Bewilder Box Initiative, in 2016 which has proved a huge hit.

Featuring Knightmare's Tregard, aka Hugo Myatt, the game is the number one rated experience for Fun and Games on Tripadvisor for Brighton and has a five-star average from 300+ reviews. Furthermore, since it opened over 4,000 people have completed the challenge, including celebrity visitors such as Olympic medallist Gail Emms, TV's Jonathan Ross and screenwriter Jane Goldman.

Dave Middleton, and co-founder of Bewilder Box Escape Rooms, Dave Staffell, are leading experts on the UK’s escape room culture, having appeared in What Britain Buys with Mary Portas, explaining the growing appeal of this form of entertainment. The pair also recently spoke at the inaugural UK Escape Room Industry Conference which was widely attended by over 150 Escape Room owners.
