An immersive environment like none before it: built into a 40’ shipping container, this 3-room experience challenges players to enter an undersea laboratory off the coast of California in Monterey Bay where, for years, scientists have been researching Leapsinella Luminex.
Recreating the escape room experience at home can be fun not only for the players, but also for you while designing and building it. Obviously, friends and family will not expect you to build out a completely new room inside your house for a fun game. Though you really can create a extremely immersive experience for the players without breaking the bank (or the walls).
As part of a story on escape rooms, Alex Nelson from i News reached out to interview CEO Jeff Jang on how escape rooms are designed. There is no one way to do it, but it's something we've iterated on a lot with our background in video game design and we're proud of how robust it is.

Immersion is like air—constantly surrounding us and affecting our every move. We don’t notice when it’s there and when we do we just resign to just dealing with it or breathing a little harder to compensate. With escape rooms as an industry being so young, this is by far one of the biggest and most commonly neglected areas in escape rooms everywhere.
Escape rooms are meant to be an alternate reality where we can interact with them like we would in reality. We’re free to touch anything we want (well, I think a lot of them tell you to not touch certain things… but that’s for another day), and fully immerse ourselves in the world we find ourselves in. Unlike the real world however, escape rooms tend to have a narrative and goals for us to follow.
