We were staying in a ShareBnB for the last 14 days and finally got notice that we were able to return back to the world to start our jobs again. Bad news was that, the host of the ShareBnB was very paranoid and decided to lock us in!
"Lockdown Breakout" was a very unique digital escape game experience. Once you purchase the game, you'll be sent a link to the game immediately. The entire game was build on google form. It's integrated with videos to show you rooms and locks (similar feeling to an avatar showing you a remote escape room). Every time you solved a puzzle, a video would show the unlocking of the lock and what items were now available to be used. It would great to integrate a inventory list as we were unsure what we've used and what was still available to us. There was one area that contained a lot of the items we needed to solve several puzzles with but it was a bit hard to get to on the google form since you'll have repeat the previous steps in order to get back to that area. The good thing was that when a lock was opened, it will stay open. So even if we decided to go back to a certain area, we wouldn't need to enter the code again. It would be great to add some music for ambiance as it does get pretty quiet throughout the game, especially when the videos were playing.
This was a great way to enjoy a remote escape room experience without spending the big bucks. Since there's no time limit on the game, you can use it to practice your "lock opening" skills and play the game in "leisure mode".
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
