'Framed' is a new type of escape room experience that makes the puzzle genre a collaborative online experience. Escape rooms have risen in popularity over the past several years, with different real-life rooms popping up in response to the popular video game genre. The Framed experience takes escape rooms back online, but in a different way, with online viewers using a chat section to guide the main character and make decisions for him.

In the Framed narrative, a security guard at an art gallery finds himself trapped in one of the exhibition rooms with a dead body. He needs to escape within 30 minutes, or else the murder will be pinned on him.

The actual actor himself will be wearing a head-mounted camera and live streaming his point of view, and the most productive submissions from online users will guide his decisions.
