Hello there!

I discovered what an escape room was in February 2014 after seeing an ad on a Singapore train.

It sounded like a real life adventure.

But I didn’t get a chance to try an escape room until December 2015 when I finally convinced some friends to try one out.

I fell in love with escape rooms and most weeks I write about the escape room industry here on my blog Intervirals.

Sometimes I also write about alternate reality games (ARGs) or viral advertising stunts.

What are real life room escape games you say?
It’s usually played in a room where you need to find clues and solve puzzles in order to find the final key that will let you unlock the door of the room. There’s a catch though – you only have 60 minutes to solve all of the puzzles in the room and it involves a group of other participants on your team who are locked in the room with you.

There’s also usually a theme associated with a real life room escape game. In the past year, there’s been a lot of zombies, werewolves, titans (or giants), haunted ships, lost gardens, a escape igloo, the island conspiracy, crime investigations and even escaping from a normal looking room (… which turns out to be a room that isn’t really normal in the first place).


Want to see how room escape is played out in real life?

Here’s a Youtube video by SCRAP Entertainment which started the first room escape game in Japan.

      Hey Mhay, are you part of the escape room slack group? I’m sure there will be plenty of people who are interested in reviewing Lock Paper Scissors! 😀
      Thanks, Essa
