More details

Project brief

A Wall Opens is a counterpoint to the traditional Escape Room genre, replacing the feeling of time pressure with one of contemplative exploration, and emphasizing positive change in its puzzle solving. Rather than focus on a rapid escape from a space, it instead invites the player to understand its space and characters, and through that understanding transform and move past a given puzzle.

A Wall Opens also explores through its puzzles and themes illusion and perspective in new ways only possible in a Virtual environment.
