So things have been moving forward for The Enigma Room, albeit not as quickly as we would like, but we are making progress towards an opening date.
Matt’s trip to PAX was a success with a great turn out for his panel and it was there that he piqued the interest of writers for Gizmodo. In fact, they were so interested in what he had to say, he was recently featured in an article!
That article led to us being featured in Geek In Sydney. As the article says we're going to be aiming to have a focus on Science and Technology based puzzles, but we are also looking to add more of a theatrical element as well to make sure that players get have a unique and fun experience when visiting us. Remember, our goal is to take the genre in a new direction.
If you have been checking the website regularly, you may have also noticed some other changes as well. First off, we have an address! When we do open, you will be able to find us at 262 Pitt St Sydney. As for the opening date, if things go well with our installation and testing phase, we will be opening in December (somewhere around the middle).
The next big reveal was the first of our two themes… “Dr Disaster” will be a Bond-esque comedy escape room featuring a bunch of science based puzzles mixed in with loads of references to supervillains, real life rogue-states and maybe a few other pop-culture surprises. We hope this room will be thrilling and hilarious at the same time.
Our second theme is still yet to be released (we have to keep some things mysterious!) but should be announced within the next week. Keep an eye on the blog to be the first to find out when this happens.
What do you think of Dr Disaster? Does he have the potential to be the greatest villain of all time? Who is your favourite movie / video game villain? Let us know in the comments?
