This week I had the pleasure of guest hosting the Room Escape Divas podcast. I interviewed six guests about the ups and downs and all sorts of whacky and bizarre things that happened during the Prexcyt Quest puzzle hunt.
Justin Nevins, creator of the Cryptex and sponsor of the hunt.
Darren Miller, puzzle designer.
Dan Egnor, puzzle designer.
David Lewis, developer, technical support, and accidental security officer.
Errol Elumir, puzzle designer, and actual Room Escape Divas podcaster.
Manda Whitney, mistress of hints, trolled by Errol, and actual Room Escape Divas podcaster.
If you participated in Prexcyt Quest, this will give you a behind the scenes listen into how this unusual hunt came about and all sorts of zany and unexpected things that happened throughout its run.
From discussions of unusual “features” like gold allergies and hyper-contagious Zombie Tourettes, to the technical meltdown and hacking that almost destroyed the game, I had a lot of fun hosting. I was pretty surprised to hear much of what went on myself.
