This week The Games Institute Director Neil Randall sat down with the CBC Radio broadcast Spark for the segment 'Room escape games’ are putting a new spin on immersive gaming.'
The program originally aired this Sunday afternoon and is scheduled to air again on Wednesday at 2:05 PM. Full broadcast and podcast details are also on the CBC website.
You are working with your friends and playing on them as human beings, rather than working with or against some kind of system that appears only on your computer, so it is very much a social kind of movement.
Neil discusses the social and collaborative aspect of room escape games and the recent movement towards collective gaming. This segment hosted by Spark looks into why games are crashing through the screen and into our physical world.
