We designed this Escape Room to contribute to the Kingston Library Review. This review was asking the question ‘what does your ideal library service look like?’
It was an interesting challenge for us – could we create an escape room that not only entertained but also informed and consulted with the players?
We created a backstory about a job interview at a library operated entirely by Artificial
Intelligence. The challenges of the escape room were all connected to services that a library can offer and contained open ended questions inviting the players to imagine potential new services and define the essence of a library.
Many people who played the game had not heard about the library review and so the Escape Room enabled us to extend the reach of the review while providing our brand
of immersive storytelling.
There is a standalone version of the game which you can play here.
