Last winter, many escape room players were wowed by The Enigmatist, David Kwong’s one-man show that artfully combined magic, puzzles, cryptography, crosswords, and storytelling. The show sold out a year-long run in New York City.
This week, the Reality Escape Convention (RECON) announced David Kwong as a speaker at this year’s digital global RECON.
David will be speaking about blending magic into puzzles, and making these accessible for every skill level.
The true magic of The Engimatist was that on a surface level none of these things should have fit together. Yet, Kwong wove them into a beautifully cohesive experience that wowed and impressed at the same time.
The other magic of The Enigmatist, was, of course, the magic… which was also fantastic.
We’re so excited to have this magician reveal some of his tricks… of accessible puzzle design.
With his expertise in puzzles and illusions, David Kwong delights and challenges audiences around the world with his intellectual brand of magic.
Escape room players and creators were captivated by his sold-out one-man show, The Enigmatist and now we’re bringing his unique perspectives on puzzle-based immersive entertainment to the RECON stage.
He has experienced many stages – as a veteran “cruciverbalist” (crossword puzzle constructor) for multiple publications, and a consultant for films such as Ant-Man and Now You See Me. Read his full bio on the RECON website.
We’re thrilled to have Kwong share his unique insights on the art of blending magic into puzzles.
