REA Weekly Roundup – September 24, 2017

We spent the day at World Maker Faire in Queens, NY. We love this annual excursion to see both practical and ridiculous things people create.

Announcements

Ticket sales have closed for Escape Immerse Explore: NYC 2017, a tailored tour through many of New York City’s best escape rooms. We are looking forward to meeting everyone in November!

Featured escape rooms

This week we reviewed IRL Escape’s WW2 Bunker. In the review, we discuss IRL’s partially successful attempt to address a politically sensitive topic, through the medium of escape room.

Something different

Puzzle Out’s Downtown Countdown merged a puzzle game with a walking tour through Jersey City, NJ.

Featured products

ClueKeeper is an iOS & Android app for building and playing puzzle hunts, such as Downtown Countdown. We recommend that both players and designers check it out.

If you run an escape room, you should keep a key extractor on hand.
