CREATE THE GAME

Your goal is to create a 20 minutes escape game around a given physical object. The theme can be anything. You will be in charge of the puzzles, riddles and storyline. You do not need to design the space around you or to physically build the game. You can use any accessible elements or laws of physics, but you can’t invent non-existing or hard to access technology (Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence or Space-X technology) or use any dangerous materials (like fire).

PRESENT YOUR IDEA

The presentation will take place at the same spot on September 30th. It will start at 12:00 PM, but depending on the number of participants, you might be given a different presentation time. The final pitch should last between 5 and 10 minutes and can be in any given format. The final decision will be made by 4 judges based on: the story, the puzzle complexity, the originality and the game flow.

WIN THE TOURNAMENT

All participants will get a special prize by A/Maze, but the team with the best game design will win a grand prize of $1,000 and their design will be taken as the base for a new escape game. At A/Maze, we are always coming up with new ideas for adventures, but we know you all have some too. So this is your chance to share them with us and maybe see them in a future game!
