Digital Escape Room Design And Planning

In spite of the health crisis due to Covid-19, life must go on. And that includes the working life. For many people, social distancing will mean having to spend long hours at home.

In spite of the health crisis due to Covid-19, life must go on. And that includes the working life. For many people, social distancing will mean having to spend long hours at home. Yet all the regular work activities, be they meetings, training, recruitment and communication, will still be going on as they were before lock-down. And then there's the social context in that employees can't meet and spend time together. It's hard to overestimate the importance of this last factor. Spending too much time alone is not conducive to good mental health. Therefore, it very important that businesses and their managers find ways to bring their people together for some important interactive time. And this brings us to online digital games.

Welcome to The World of Online Interactive Games

And that's where remote interactive games come into the equation. These are games that can be played online, normally via a conferencing app like Zoom, so many people can take part in the same gaming activity together. Thanks to the medium being digital it means that these games can be played on your PC, smartphone, or tablet, and providing that you have the server power, up to 100,000 people at the same time. interactive digital escape room games are one of many activities being offered by companies that specialise in producing gaming activities for businesses. These are the ideal tool for many work-related activities, including:

Remote recruitment
Remote greetings
Remote team building
Remote training
Remote onboarding
Remote kick-offs
Remote end-of-year seminar
Remote product launches
Remote workplace safety awareness

At ExitTheRoom we have been making digital escape room games for a number of years with everything done in house. So whatever ideas you might have for a gaming experience, we're able to bring them to life without a problem. We have hosted seamless events with over 30,000 participants from all corners of the world. Another important factor when choosing a company to make your custom game is that they are able to integrate key and performance data from each participant via a personalized backend.

Build Your Own Design

If you've ever played in real bricks and mortar escape room, then you'll know that most of the work is finding and solving clues and puzzles. These might be hidden in plain sight or need a great deal of thought in order to process the clues to their inevitable conclusion of opening the lock on a door. With our in-house game developers, we are able to simulate the exact same activities or build something completely new and more in fitting with your business according to your specifications.  

Make Use of 3D Environments

Whatever your specifications that come to us, whether by description, photos or drawings, our team has no trouble creating them in ultra-realistic 3D. Just as in the real world, you'll be able to explore the 3D space as if it was real. Like a real escape room game, you'll be able to play in exactly the same manner as you would in a regular location, except you'd be sitting at home on your sofa directing a games master, who'll be doing all the heavy lifting. Another part of the online experience can come from short descriptive digital videos. As the players are immersed in the action, a short video of around 30 seconds will explain to them what the next part of the game entails and will often give them the option of a number of different endings that will depend on their gameplay actions. 

The Escape Room Online

With this type of game design, it's possible to create an online gaming experience along with getting any message across to your workers. Because the employee is actually interacting with the medium of your message, it'll result in a much higher engagement rate. In many ways, these games are a great training exercise as well as encouraging all-round involvement, which might not have been so inviting if it were a regular company event. Whatever your business needs, we can write and design a game based on your parameters and in order to fulfil your business objectives. 

Multi-Player Mode

The whole point of bringing all the members of your work team together is to help with motivation. As we've previously mentioned, their well being is also of paramount importance. As a result, we are able to offer any number of custom build scenarios in order to help create and maintain team cohesion. No matter how many players are participating, everyone will have a voice and play their vital part in the gameplay and purpose of the game itself. We can build the clues, puzzles and solutions according to your specifications.


The Details

All the factors that go to make up a complete remote gaming platform for the internet, including a tutorial, introduction video, registration and a waiting room are all provided as a given and all can be customised according to the client's needs and wants. Company branding is also an important element of any game, and our designers are on hand to ensure that your business brand is visible at all times. 

Data Protection

Obviously, in this age of fraud and data theft, we take your data security and protection very seriously indeed. You'll find a privacy policy as well as network security, along with backup processes and there's a dedicated team of people whose job it is to ensure that our systems are being constantly monitored and revised. The general idea is to stay ahead of the game as far as high IT standards are maintained and keep up with the constant demands of our customers.

Designers

AtExitTheRoom, there's a team of dedicated and talented digital escape room games designers and among their skills, you'll find Ux/UI devs, technical architects, senior devs, illustrators and game designers, who work as a collective, overseeing and bringing in projects within completion dates, and over and beyond the client expectations. if you or your business are thinking about taking an adventure into the world of live avatar online escape room games, then we're here to help out with every aspect, from initial designs to implementation of individual employee data analytics. 

Simply tell us your company goals, give us some guidelines and concepts, and then we'll do the rest. We can also set about installing branding across the game and include anything that you feel is important to show during the game, more especially so, if the game is being played for the benefit of customers, as opposed to employees. Not only does ExitTheRoom have over a decade's worth of escape room game experience, but we were one of the very first to pioneer remote escape room games being played over the internet.

How Companies Are Doing Virtual Team Building
A few years ago, if you’d asked virtually anyone working in an office environment if they’d like to work from home, then the answer would have been a resounding “yes.” but fast forward to today, after many have been home bound for almost a year and you’d get a very different answer.
