Escape the Night: Season Two on Youtube

One night to escape.

Escape the Night is back for Season Two on Youtube. Last season, the evil house was contained but the evil found its way back to Joey.

Another ten Youtubers are transported to a new era (Victorian style) and to a new house of evil.

As the party starts, we’re introduced to Allison who warns people to leave. Her father Dorian is up to something.

The guests soon realise they have walked into a trap – a dinner for vampires. To save their friend Joey, they’ll have to destroy Dorian with three things – purified salt, a sun stone and a stake from Van Helsing.

This season looks to be even better – more explosions and the actors engage in amazing fight scenes. There are even animations on the video to help viewers see how puzzles are being solved.

The first episode is available for free on Youtube now, while the rest of season two is on Youtube Red.

Framed, the world’s first escape room murder mystery streamed on Facebook Live

On the night shift, the security guard takes a quick break before commencing his nightly patrol of the art gallery. A normal and quiet night on the job at first – then he finds a dead body on the floor. The door to exit the room is stuck. The guard is trapped in the room – what will the audience decide?

Framed was an interactive mystery streamed on Facebook in early October. In 30 minutes, people tuned into the live stream could help the guard figure out what happened before he would become the main murder suspect.

Moderators asked the audience to vote for one of two actions that the guard could perform in the room and watch what happened in real-time. This was due to the camera that the guard wore on his head – giving a first hand perspective of what was going on in the room.

The producers of this interactive mystery were inspired by the feeling you get, when you’re at home and you try to solve the detective mystery on the television before the detective on the show can. There were also hints the live stream contained some hidden easter eggs too.

Even though the event was back in October, the whole live stream is still up on Facebook and is re-watchable at the link below. The comments section also updates as if the video is real time which is a neat feature.

 

Of interest, Framed was written by David Varela – who turns out to have contributed to some very cool projects including – Perplex City (ARG) and the mobile games – Zombies, Run! and Sherlock: The Network.

Escape the Night! When a bunch of Youtubers get caught up in a murder mystery game created by Joey Graceffa

The house doesn’t allow its current owner to sleep. As a result Joey Graceffa invites over his friends for a 1920s dinner party but an evil is brewing within the house. Escape the Night is a new Youtube series created by Graceffa and involves a group of Youtubers being caught up in a murder mystery game over the course of a night.

When the guests start dinner, one of them becomes ill as a result of poisoning and receives a message – “There is an ANTIDOTE hidden on the first floor of the house. If your friends are wise enough they’ll be able to solve the clues and save you. It all begins with the last dish of the night” – Youtube.

The dish reveals a series of clues that lead to a storage box and locked inside are three antidote vials with a message. The guests split into smaller groups to search for three keys hidden within the study, the library and the foyer of the house.

Each location needs to bring back their key to the storage box and unlock a vial, as the poisoned Youtuber needs all three antidote vials to recover. The Youtubers don’t work well together and the unfortunate guest gets “poisoned” in the game.

The guest’s jacket is searched for clues and his notes reveal the house is possessed by an ancient evil trapped in the 1920s. The Society Against Evil has been trying to destroy this evil by finding four hidden artifacts. These artifacts then need to be joined together in a ritual to lock away the evil forever.

For every journey, there’s a cost involved. For the final test of each artifact, the group must get two guests to undertake the challenge and in turn one of them will “die” from the Youtube series.

All the guests have until sunrise to beat the ancient evil otherwise they will be trapped in the 1920s forever. The first episode of Escape the Night is free on Youtube and definitely worth a watch here. There’s six episodes out now with a new episode coming out this Thursday but to watch the whole series you’ll need a Youtube Red subscription.

Bonus Part – Since this blog was posted up late, I decided to scribe the library riddle that gave three of the Youtubers a headache and which they couldn’t solve in time. Can you solve it? I’ll post the answer in the comments section below.

Two devils: Wormwood and Asmodeus cross paths in the lower levels of Hell. Asmodeus implores Wormwood as to how many souls he has perverted this week. Wormwood replies, “three young ones”. Asmodeus is furious with the lesser devils failure to bring in more souls and asks their ages. Wormwood realizes this is his chance to confound the King of Devils and avoid his fiery wrath and gives him a riddle instead of a straight answer.

“If you multiple their ages you will get the number 36”

Asmodeus seethes for a moment trying to solve the riddle and then bellows, “It is not enough to determine their ages I need more information.” Wormwood replies without hesitation for the telling of riddles is his best skill.

“If you add all 3 ages together you will get the number of devils on the grand council” A/N: There are 13 devils on the grand council – it was on the book’s cover.

Asmodeus stews on the new information as the fires burn around him but he cannot derive the answer and remarks so Workwood replies, 36 is enough.

{The rest of the riddle is too blurry to read from the video but there should be a mention about an eldest child.}

Determine the ages of the 3 corrupt children.
