At Room Escape Artist, we write about escape rooms 365 days a year. It’s a lot of content… so we’ve decided to help you out with a monthly column that highlights the strongest and most interesting content that we put out each month.

Escape Rooms

The Missing Season, Steal and Escape (San Diego, CA) – Steal and Escape is pushing the boundaries of story- and narration-driven escape room gameplay in The Missing Season. (Review by Theresa W)

The Weeping Witch, Cross Roads Escape Games (Anaheim, CA) – The Weeping Witch was truly terrifying… and we wholeheartedly recommend it. (Review by Theresa W)


The Past Within, Rusty Lake (point-and-click) – In this cooperative point-and-click game, we love the warped dream-like logic of the game world. (Review by the REA Hivemind)


REPOD S4E10: Digging for a Pony: David Spigner, CEO of Boda Borg, Sweden(ish) – We didn’t know much about Boda Borg, a reality gaming company that originated in Sweden, before we interviewed David Spigner, President/CEO. He’s a great storyteller and his journey is full of surprises. (Show notes by Peih-Gee Law)


Black Immersive Creators Grant 2023: Donations Open – Fundraising is now open for the 2023 season of The Black Immersive Creators Grant. If you have the means, please consider making a donation.
