Turning an in-real-life game into an online escape room

Changing a game from in-real-life play to online play is a lot of work. It takes us over a month with an entire team to effectively change the game!

It doesn’t matter whether you’re into live music, art, or the simplistic splendour of great outdoors, there is no shortage of things to see, do, taste and enjoy as we embrace the season of cosy sweaters, golden colours, and of course, the ubiquitous pumpkin spice latte.
