Escape Room Puzzle Ideas from Game Design Improv

Game Design Improv

Ideas for escape rooms can be hard to think of. Sometimes it’s hard to¬†know where to start (of course you can always read my book)! I’ve got just the thing for people struggling to think of escape room puzzle ideas: Game Design Improv!

Some brave George Brown game design students joined me on the Wero Creative Twitch channel to stream a recent brainstorming session. We set out to create escape room puzzle ideas using Game Design Improv and I must say the results are pretty entertaining. After a rocky start we got the swing of things. I think our best idea was generated in the second video embedded below.
This first video includes me describing the game and some ways to use it to come up with escape room puzzle ideas.

After you come up with your escape room puzzles you can use the Room Escape Company Name Generator by the ever-amazing Room Escape Artists.

You can get the game now on iOS and Android!

Here’s the trailer for the game about game ideas:
