In an escape room game, you need not only smart minds to solve the ingeniously designed puzzles, but also agile athletes to break through the many structures, and more need to be bold and dedicated “tanks” to walk in front of the team. To give courage to the companions, the guests in the team have their own strengths and help each other, and there are often scenes of “group soul burning”. But in the reasoning reality show like “Celestial Detective”, it is another situation. Because the “murderer” is hidden around, the guests do not trust each other and suspect each other. Everyone has to go through the process of searching for evidence and reasoning. The cocoon draws silk to find out the “true culprit”.
