I’ll be speaking at the Transworld Room Escape Conference later this week! The event starts on Friday and runs through the weekend. If you’re not far from Chicago where it’s happening you should come and check it out!
The nation’s largest dedicated conference for the emerging room escape industry features interactive exhibits & vendors, on-site demos, networking opportunities and dozens of targeted educational seminars presented by escape game industry leaders from both the United States and Canada.
My talk is titled Designing Puzzles for Player Flow and this is what it’s about:
Are your players getting stuck and frustrated? Find out ways to rethink your puzzles as part of a greater system and how to retool them in case they aren’t working how you envisioned. Learn how video game design techniques can be applied to physical rooms, how to troubleshoot design issues, and a template to approach your puzzles in isolation through a holistic lens.
If you cannot make it to Chicago for the conference you can always get my book. With the popularity of escape games of all sorts growing it is likely a matter of time until a conference pops up in your area!
Say hello if you see me there.
