Remote Escape Rooms 

CLOSEST FORM TO PHYSICAL ROOMS

This is, by far, the most authentic imitation to being in an actual escape room. When done right, it is absolutely fantastic.

Essentially, it works like this:

First, everyone needs the capability to participate in a web conference call meeting, most popularly via an app called Zoom. (Some may use Google Meet.) Then, all players, a game master referred as the "avatar", and other game hosting staff enter the same web meeting. Everyone will then communicate through real time live video feed and audio chat.

The aforementioned "avatar" will broadcast, most often by a camera strapped to a body harness, what they see inside an actual escape room location to the participants. The patrons see what the avatar see. The players then command this avatar to act on their behalf, to explore, to search, and to investigate the set. And of course, to solve puzzles.

While this is the basic idea, the actual execution has been fine tuned by numerous companies with various and different approaches, so no one remote escape experience is exactly the same as another.

If you would like to read more on this phenomenon, I did a feature series on all things remote escape rooms, chronicling my first impressions. Have a read. Also, if you want to browse available remote escape rooms across the globe, I recommend this well made directory website at Live Video Escape Rooms Directory.
