Now it's time for you to get with the times

    The long going pandemic forces entrepreneurs to search for innovative solutions. When the stationary escape rooms were closed, the internet came to the rescue with a live cam escape room.

    In short: this is a physical escape room moved to the virtual world. Thanks to this we can join from all over the world - all you need is a computer and access to the internet. The basic online escape rooms are extremely easy to organize. They can be expanded with additional solutions or improvements over time.

    Playing the game

    The gamemaster talks to the players and is visible to them on the screen throughout the game. That is why you should choose the right person for this role - communicative and speaking English. It would be helpful if such person has acting skills (it's worth considering dressing up in a room theme outfit).

    The basic tool for live cam escape is... a camera. In most cases, even a good smartphone is enough - it must have a high-end camera. It is also worth taking care of having the fastest internet available. Buffering will definitely not be welcome by your clients.

    Software

    Most of the online video escape rooms are currently using the Zoom app. It is relatively cheap and stable, allows you to stream the image from your phone and facilitate contact with players. You can also use Google Hangouts or Skype.
