The Accumulated Escape

2016: Chris Kerich

The Accumulated Escape is a project to explore what happens when the "reset" aspect is taken out of an Escape Room. Escape Rooms are games where a team of people has to discover clues and solve puzzles to escape a locked room. This was a small-scale, 2-3 person Escape Room that took around 30 minutes to complete. Testing took place in a converted space in the CMS corrdior of MIT. The results of the design and test of this Escape Room indicate that when the "reset" element is removed, Escape Rooms will be designed and redesigned by the participants until they are esoteric, possibly unsolvable hightened and strange spaces.
