We’re excited to let you know that David, Lisa, and Peih-Gee will be on stage together at the Immersive Industry Homecoming Summit hosted at AREA15 in Las Vegas. We’ll be talking about trends in immersive gaming and agency, and what immersive creators of all stripes can learn from the art and commerce of escape games.
It’s almost time for the 2022 Golden Lock Awards. Together with the help of the entire REA team of writers, we’re excited to honor incredible escape games that you can play in real life, virtually, and tabletop.
Saturday, April 30
This will be a livestream. We’ll share the link to tune in here, and on REA social media, later this month.
Many of you noticed that we didn’t announce any Golden Lock Award winners back at the start of the year… We didn’t forget, we weren’t being lazy, and we didn’t abandon our award. We were low-key moving it for a whole bunch of reasons.
So let’s start with the details on the 2022 Golden Lock Awards… and then we can chat about why we moved it.
2022 Golden Lock Awards
The 2022 Golden Lock Awards livestream will happen on Saturday, April 30.
We’re hosting a live gathering of the REA Hivemind: a swarm. We’ll all be together to share our favorite games of 2021 and Q1 2022. Moving forward, we will be hosting the Golden Lock Awards in April.
So, yes, the Hivemind and our active reviewers will be a big part of this year’s awards and their presentation.
The last big change we’re making this year is the addition of a Tabletop Escape Game category. Plus, special for this year only, we will be adding retrospective awards for Tabletop Escape Games we played in the past that really defined this medium.
