“Live Video Escape Rooms are a new way to play Escape Rooms with your friends from the comfort and safety of your own home. Guide a host via live video to explore, solve puzzles and uncover mysteries. Gather a team as your friends join via video link from their homes.”

“We have taken our hit escape room and made it so people can play with their group from the safety of their homes.” said Wolfson. “People will book the game online, then using streaming meeting technology to be able to control the game facilitator as their avatar in the game.” He explained. “It is like a first person video game but with live people, and it is designed for a 3 to 6 player group. The best part is the players can be in 6 different homes anywhere in the world as long as they have a good WiFi connection.”

When players enter that all-to-familiar cabin in the woods, they will have until dawn (or 70 minutes, whichever comes first) to find the Kandarian dagger and destroy the book of the dead before the evil dead swallows their souls.

“We are designing it to emulate the already existing escape room game but as an event.” Wolfson explained “We will have cinematic elements, drink ideas, snack recommendations and even a drinking game option. We want players to forget about the world and its issues for a while and enjoy a night with their friends and family.”
