During these challenging times, when we are on the brink of losing our sanity, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for finding a fun activity during COVID-19.
While it may be easy to overlook escape games, we cannot simply ignore their benefits. Compared to other fun activities in COVID-19, quarantine games are safer and more entertaining. We have a choice of in person, private escape room games in our store when we never mix you with other players, or virtual escape room games, you and your freinds log in via zoom, and our game master runs around the game for you, while you are all playing remotely.
Enter Virtual Escape Games.
Escape games are used to offer players a live-action experience, in which the player would immerse themselves in the dynamics of the game. They must work together to solve clues and find their way out of a precarious situation. However, virtual escape games are just that, with a little innovation.
How Does It Work?
Now, you can enjoy an online escape room from the comforts of your home without even the slightest chance of catching the novel coronavirus. Online escape rooms connect participants with the game server through the website and a zoom call over the internet. The players have 2 active connections, and both play an integral part in this quarantine game.
The zoom video call will be streamed between you, your invitees, a representative from the online escape room, and your agent. While the physical escape game had you and your friends in a room, online escape rooms have you sitting behind the desk and your agent on the field.
The agent is like your physical body on the field who will respond to your command. You can ask the agent to look up, down, left, right, or even request them to pick up objects and move things. Don't worry about your agent's safety. Every nook and corner of the escape room is thoroughly sanitized to prevent contact with COVID-19.
