WHO SAID IT IS ONLY FOR E-LEARNING? ZOOM NOW INTRODUCES THE DIGITAL ESCAPE ROOM
Updated: May 26
The coronavirus lockdown has caused people to rely on digital entertainment like never
before. The puzzle Break, an escape room company created a virtual version of its challenge, the Grimm Escape, that can be played by remote teams during virus lockdowns.
The CEO, Nate Martin, said that it has been simultaneously necessary and heartbreaking to close their in-person experiences.
The new rules
Players will join a 90-minute video call on zoom and start the game with team buildings.
Problem-solving, and puzzles.
The games are aimed at both small groups and companies.
Customers do not need to have a Zoom account.
The goal is to escape the room by, in this case, breaking the witch's curse. True to Grimm fashion, you will need to find the clues by choosing between visiting a series of mysterious castles or speaking to a set of magical animals.
The players investigate the images and other files in a shared folder to explore the puzzles they need to solve. As they move along, Puzzle Break employees drop new challenges into the shared folder, much like unlocking a secret case in a physical escape room.
Online escape rooms are now the trend. And, many companies will seek opportunities through it.
There is now "Get Your Motor Running" by Paruzal Games, and " Cabin Fever" by Trapped in the Web.
The Lockdown has shown its bright side through the moments we share with our friends and beloved ones and, the technology seems to serve this noble cause perfectly.
