Puzzle Break, a company that creates escape rooms, is now offering a virtual escape room experience for groups on video conferencing platform Zoom. As ever, The Grimm Escape is an experience that requires collaboration and problem-solving, as people will need to put their heads together to escape. While physical escape rooms often rely on puzzles and hidden objects, the digital scenes offer a different experience and the aid of a "fairy godparent" guide.
Charged by the popularity of escape rooms at their peak, tons of apps and online games have been created to simulate the pressure of the in-person team-building experience and now. While many escape room games can be experienced as a solo player, virtual escape rooms are emerging at a time when teams are separated and rely on effective video chat communication.
