Our Game Rooms
The games at PUZZLE ME stand out for being truly interactive, fully immersive experiences that aim to stimulate all of your senses, from sight and sound to touch, smell, and taste. Our games are like no others!
Puzzle Me is an escape game company offering a fully immersive, multi-sensory, live-action experience. Our first location, to open in summer of 2016 in Austin, Texas, will offer three uniquely-themed escape game rooms.
What is an Escape Game?
A real-life or live-action escape room, also called escape game, exit game, escape the room game, is a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit.
Why escape games?
Only a few years old, the escape room game industry is exploding, and that’s the best time to get involved. It seems practically everyone loves puzzle rooms once they try one and what better job is there than to make people have fun. Plus, there are even health benefits. Puzzles have been proven to strength brain capacity, problem-solving skills and can even delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Please support us through our crowdfunding campaign, to launch soon.
The PUZZLE ME project’s creator said this about her first live-action escape game experience:
“The first time I played an escape game I almost didn’t go. It was my friend’s birthday and she wanted to try an escape room, but I was on a tight budget. Thankfully, my friend finally talked me into it, because escape rooms are the most exciting games I’ve ever played in my life. One play and I was hooked. Now, I’m dying to share this experience with the world.”
In order to make the Puzzle Room a huge success, we’ve planned out every detail. But we won’t make you read all that. Here’s the abridged version instead. Let the countdown begin!
Step One – Raise Awareness
First, we need to introduce Puzzle Me to Austin and spread the word as far and as wide as possible.
Please, ask all your friends and family to vote on their favorite game room themes and sign up for our newsletter. Like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and subscribe on YouTube.
Step Two – Crowdfunding
A whole month is dedicated to raising remaining capital funds and we can’t do it without your help. We have a wide variety of top-notch perks to offer that you are going to love! Sign up for our newsletter to be notified when the campaign opens.
Step Three – Construction
Now it’s time to sign a lease on a space and setup our rooms. We’ll spend the next month building out the inside of our facility, adding walls, and decorating the game rooms. We have all the tools, but we will need a few helping hands. Volunteers will be rewarded handsomely!
Step Four – Grand Opening!
After setup has completed, we’ll throw an awesome Puzzle Me Launch Party for our team, investors and our most generous supporters. We hope you can come out and play with us. Get your Launch Party tickets with certain perks in our crowdfunding campaign. Our grand opening will be accompanied by an extensive promotional campaign.
Step Five – Add More Rooms
Puzzle Me Austin will open as soon as our first room as completed. But since we will be opening three different game rooms, the construction will continue until all the rooms have been completed.
