Red House Mysteries are an Interactive Game Design company based in the South West of England. For the past few years we have been running treasure hunts and theme events around the local area and recently our scope has broadened due to the massive success of our collaboration with Realm Pictures on the 'First Person Shooter (Chatroulette Version)' video that now has 7 million views and is still spreading. We are now in the process of moving our office to Exeter and as part of that we want to bring a high quality, immersive Escape the Room experience to the city.
For those who aren't familiar with the concept, Escape Games are a rapidly growing industry in the UK. An interactive, adrenaline soaked race to escape a locked room full of mysteries and puzzles, all set to an engaging narrative. Players must beat the ticking clock by using a variety of skills to literally escape the room and solve the mystery in time.
Red House Mysteries pride themselves on their ability to immerse players in environments and interactive stories and we would want our escape game to be no different. We want to elevate the experience to the high standard we always attempt to deliver. This includes such things as high quality furnishings and props, a wide variety of puzzles that stimulate all your senses and technical equipment to provide the best lighting, visuals and audio to the room.
We will be opening our first room for Halloween this year. Once you and your team come to experience it, you will be able to see the difference. Not just a bare shell of a room with a few puzzles and a lot of padlocks, but a fully believable environment where the mystery will unfold as you attempt to tie together all the clues and multi-sensory puzzles, leading you to the dramatic conclusion and the final escape back to real life. Anything less than this, to us, is not worth doing!
Those who back us will receive the very first tickets with up to a third off the face value price, and for those who are wiling to invest in us that bit extra, we have more personalised rewards, including a limited amount of completely custom theme events we can run just for you. Your support means a great deal to us and we want to repay you with the most exciting and immersive live game we can create.
Risks and challenges
We are planning to open our office for business in October and the first of several Escape Rooms by Halloween. Our biggest challenge will be the building of the rooms to that deadline, we have all the stories and puzzles designed but we have to build interior walls and do a lot of decorating to get the rooms up to the standard we will be happy with to officially open for business.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
