The escape room is making a comeback! We know that not everyone enjoyed last one, so that is why we have listened to your feedback to improve it!
Hold up, what is an escape room?
An escape room is as the name suggests. You get locked in a room and you need to escape. The first one to do this wins. Sounds simple right? Well, in order to escape you need to be smart, solve puzzles and overcome other obstacles that might get in your way.
What changes did you make to the escape room?
The first and biggest change we made is that we now have multiplayer. Two players shall be locked in each room, so you better start finding yourself a friend . While voice communication between the two players is not required, it is strongly recommended.
The second big change we made, is putting more thinking puzzles into the escape room. Last edition's room had puzzles that could easily be solved with luck, and the hide-and-seek at the end was too difficult. While we have not removed the hide-and-seek completely, it has been made significantly easier. The luck-based puzzles have been removed and replaced by actual puzzles.
Another change that we made is the addition of command blocks. Last time we relied completely on pure redstone, which led to some problems. This time, about 90% of all magic is done using command blocks so there is nothing that can go wrong.
A last thing we did is preparing all the rooms we will use weeks in front and instead of testing one and copying it, we walked trough every single version and made sure that everything works.
We apologize for the mistakes we made last time, and we thank you for your feedback. Thanks to you, we were able to improve the escape room and all the events in general!
Sounds great! Is there anything else I need to know?
You don't need, to know more, but an escape room is much more fun when it gets put in a certain setting and context. That's why I have prepared some lore.
The Year is 2058. Scientists have discovered a new particle, the so called "Geospherical-Particale", or "Gee-particle" for short. They originally found this particle while looking for a source of green energy, but just as humans always are, they eventually tried to weaponise it. While initially they had great succes, creating many weapons of mass destruction, one day one of their experiments failed and they created a ticking time bomb. The government had tried everything they could, but as the deadline came closer and the bomb became more unstable, they decided to dust off some old plans. Back in the day, there used to be a plan called "Project Baba". The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if they could be something more. To see if they could do the things that nobody else could and save the world when we needed them to. Because right now, we need them to save it. We need you to save it.
So there you have it, a short summary of our escape room. If you still can't get enough, be sure to check the teaser out!
