‘Tis the season for our annual Room Escape Divas appearance.
Announcing Nick Moran at RECON
If you listen to the episode, or scan the timestamps below, you’ll learn that Nick Moran will be speaking at RECON.
The brilliant, funny, and talented Nick Moran (please, nobody tell him we said that) was Creative Director of Time Run and Game Director of Sherlock: The Game Is Now, in collaboration with Hartswood Films. Don’t miss out on hearing him speak!

It’s kind of amazing to me how far we and the Divas have come over the past half decade. They are truly putting out their best content these days. It’s delightful to listen to (and occasionally participate in.)
Finally, my favorite quote of the episode is Errol saying, “Oh… coming to me is not a safe place.”
