First SGCafe giveaway in the Year of the Dragon! We’ve got 10 tickets for the January 29 (Sunday) 1.30PM slot up for grabs!
What’s the Real Escape Game?
Ever wondered what Crimson Room (or any of the other web-based flash adventure games where you wake up in some mysterious location and have to find a way out) would be like in real-life? Well, Takao Kato from Japanese events company Scrap did. Actually it was the girl sitting next to him who did. Kato happened to be looking for ideas for a new type of event, so he ran with it.
And thus, the Real Dasshutsu Game (literally, Real Escape Game) was born.
Scrap has since organised a long line of Real Dasshutsu Games, eventually doing tie-ups with Evangelion, and most recently, Nobunaga no Yabou (Nobunaga’s Ambition from Koei… yes, the same one as “Pokemon X Nobunaga’s Ambition”).
Their next one, a collaboration with manga and upcoming movie Space Brothers, will be held in April and May at Zepp Sapporo, Sendai, Fukuoka, Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka.
But you won’t have to travel so far to see what the fuss’s all about. Nope, the Real Escape Game is coming to you; it’ll be held in Singapore for the first time this weekend, in conjunction with local events company Vivid Creations.
Will you be able to solve the mystery and escape? At each REG event less than one-fifth of the participants are able to – will you be one of them?
Note: The solution to all puzzles will be is given at the end of each Real Escape Game. So no worries if you don’t solve all of them in time.
When is it happening, and how do I buy tickets?
The Real Escape Game takes place this Friday through Sunday (27, 28, 29 January), with multiple time slots throughout the day. Head over to Gatecrash to see which ones are still available.
