At Esxoss Manway, we use cutting-edge technology to make our escape rooms Calgary’s most immersive, heart-pounding experience. The lines between virtual and real become blurred as you and your team wrestle with various challenging logic games for victory over the room.
A Brief History Lesson
Escape rooms began as “escape-the-room” video games, games where you progress by escaping a room by solving puzzles and manipulating various aspects of your surroundings. This style of video game was then co-opted for the real world, and the escape room was born. That the first real-life escape room, “Origin”, was developed by Silicon Valley programmers is a testament to the intimate relation between the escape room and technology.
This move from the virtual world to reality allowed for immersion beyond the screen. An exciting chance to work together with friends, solve challenging puzzles, and escape a real, physical space as opposed to making virtual progress. However, in this move from digital to real life, part of the escape experience was lost in that the room needed to be made more mechanical, becoming more of a glorified scavenger hunt than anything.
The Evolution of the Escape Room
By integrating the most up to date technologies into our rooms, we are pushing the Escape Room into the future. Artificial Intelligence, and digital environments make your escape experience more realistic, so you can lose yourself in the excitement as you race against the clock. We bring back the best aspects of the old escape room video games to ensure that there is never a dull moment!
