Escape & Educate literally merged the ideas of learning and puzzling together. Our mission was to help our friend Winglebert, who's stuck in the British Museum, to find a bomb that's been hidden inside the museum. "Help Winglebert Save the City" is a digital game designed by using the Facebook messenger platform. Once you start the game, you'll be given options of either to read the story or to listen to the story. You'll be using the British museum's virtual tour website as a resource for the game as well. It's a fun website to explore just on its own. You'll able to learn about various artifacts from all over the world through the years AD 2000 all the way to 2 Million BC!
The puzzles will be presented to you via photos, audios or video clips. There were quite a few objectives that you must answer correctly before you can proceed onto the next part of the journey. Some answers were quite specific, so for the intermediate game (they also have a beginner version of this game which is easier since the answers were given as multiple choices) we had to play around with how to answer certain questions in order to get the one they would accept. If you got stuck, there will be a self guided hint system that you could use. Since we are avid travelers and love to learn about the history of the places we visit, this was a lovely alternative for us to enjoy "traveling" from the comfort of our home.
