About This Game
Barcelona 1920s: The city is a hotbed of political activism, artistic revolution, and the smog of modernization. Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Ernest Hemmingway sit in the smokey, crowded bars. In this online escape room, competing teams take on the role of a detective, tasked with cleaning up the streets for the upcoming World Expo. You and your co-workers have been called out to investigate a strange crime… but there’s something different about this case. Who will figure it out first?
On the day of the online holiday party, you will be split into teams of 1-6 players. By sharing screens and discussing over video chat, each team will work together to explore the city, solve puzzles, and crack the case. With over 30 locations to explore, the whole city is at their fingertips. There are multiple ways to solve each escape room like puzzle and many pathways through the story. Each group will have a unique experience and there will be plenty to discuss after this virtual escape game!
Teams will learn the real history of Barcelona in the 1920s as they chase down excentric artists, investigate crimes, and question suspects. A Christmas jazz soundtrack, lights and snow, and some hints from the Game Master add a fun element to this online Christmas party. The competitive tension and demanding puzzles make this the perfect after-work activity, remote team event, or company conference entertainment.
At the beginning of the event, the Game Master will set the scene, tell the story and guide the teams through the game. Snow and lights set a cozy holiday mood. Teams can ask the Game Master for hints with the escape game puzzles, but too many hints will count against their final time. The entire holiday event is available in 60 or 90 minute formats.
If 1920s Barcelona isn’t your scene, no worries – check out our other online escape games The Monuments Mission and A Death In The Red Light.
