The online escape rooms are getting more and more popular, and since we are the ones who opened the very first one in Hungary, we have gained plenty of experience about the gameplay. Now we would like to share this know-how with you.

 

These remote escape rooms are not so different from the traditional ones fundamentally, they just take advantage of the technical opportunities. Due to this fact it has a lot of benefits. For instance you can play with your friends who live far away from you – without travelling, from your comfortable bedroom.

As with any novelties, playing in a remote escape room has a few minor things that you should be aware of to successfully overcome all the obstacles.

 

How do these remote escape rooms work?

 

They offer you the opportunity to try this new generation of escape rooms – without leaving your home. Players can join via internet and they find themselves in the chosen room.

In this virtual room the gamemaster will pretend to be the eyes and ears of them, and he/she will follow the instructions of the players about which way to go. Through his/her webcam the players are able to see exactly the same things that the gamemaster sees.

Beyond these steps mentioned above there are no significant differences. Players have to search for clues and they need to discover the connection between them.

 

What should you pay attention to during gameplay?

 

The main difference between traditional and remote escape rooms is the way of the communication, so the first couple of tips apply to this.

 

First of all, you will need to have a properly quick internet access in order not having lagging issues during streaming. There’s no need to overcomplicate it: if the chat programs you use run smoothly, you won’t have problems with remote escape rooms either. We have worked a lot on this project, and we could find the optimal solution so you don’t have to worry about it.

 

Just like at video conferencing, while playing remote escape room game it’s a good idea to use headset so that the conversation between you and your teammates doesn’t echo. It’s also a great idea not to cut into other’s word and only one of you should talk at one time. At first glance it may not seem like this instruction makes any difference, but trust me, it makes the communication much faster and smoother.

 

When you give instructions to the game master, it is worth striving for accurate and standard orders. For example: Look around in the room! Try all the keys in the lock! Open all the drawers! etc. - obviously within reason: don’t ask him to try 1000 combinations on a number lock.

 

We hope that with the help of our suggestions you can spend some quality time in the remote escape rooms! If you feel like trying out, you can choose a room here!
