Games Institute LogoDon't miss Emma Vossen's talk at the Games Institute (EC1) this Thursday, July 30th from 12:00pm to 1:00pm!

Her presentation, titled “'What’s the most immersive thing you’ve ever done?': The Escape Room Genre and Physical Game Play Experiences," is part of the Games Institute's "Brown Bag Seminars." Here's a snippet from her abstract:

"What is an escape room? Is it larping? Is it role playing? Is it a haunted house with puzzles? Is it a game? In this talk I will look at the escape room as a genre and compare it to everything from puzzle room video games to haunted houses, extreme horror experiences and murder mystery dinners."
