Virtual escape rooms provide socially-distanced entertainment

Seattle, USA-based Hourglass Escapes has launched a virtual escape room that can be played from home during lockdown and coronavirus restrictions.

“We have taken our hit escape room and made it so you can play with your group from the safety of your homes,” a spokesperson explained.

Customers book the game online, then using streaming service Zoom’s meeting technology, they can control the game via their avatar in the game. 

The first-person virtual escape room game is designed for a three to six player group. Crucially, each player in the team can be in a different home anywhere in the world, as long as they have a good WiFi connection

Hourglass Escape commented that its product is the first remote live escape room added to the ‘Escape the Roomers’ Best of 2020 list.

Games available include ‘The Ghostly Gallean’ and user-favourite ‘Evil Dead 2’. The 60 minute adventures areo set to open on 10 July.
