Virtual Escape Room Apps
This virtual experience begins when your team of “spies” awake in a hotel room only to find out that their “cover” has been blown. Messages from Mission Central direct teams as they each view the clues in the hotel room, train station, and airport on their own devices. These clues are meant to covertly get them, and only them, to their new credentials and plane ticket which are safely stored in a locker at the airport. Clues involve recorded voice mail messages, “bugged” plants, song clips, ciphers, and more. The team that earns the most points by gathering information and solving clues is the winner.
Escape The Artic
On a hiking expedition in the Artic, your team becomes lost in a snowstorm. Luckily, as nightfall approaches, you find a small hut and regain hope that you will find a way to call for help. Inside the hut, an abandoned explorer’s bag sits on the floor. Using the items in the bag and objects around the hut, your job is to crack the code for the generator cupboard to get it up and running to power the radio, find the correct frequency for the Emergency Channel, and finally, to work out your location so that the Rescue Team can send help. Your group will collaborate in Zoom or your preferred online meeting platform while they view the virtual escape game on their own mobile devices. Teams will have 60 minutes before the hut is unreachable due to the heavy snowfall and high winds. Do they have what it takes to Escape the Arctic in time?
Escape The Castle
In this game, remote teams find themselves in the dungeon of an old run-down castle and must work together to make their way through the various locked rooms to the roof where they can escape. Each room features a different clue that relates to that space. Clues are solved in a variety of ways including listening to audio clues, solving logic puzzles, finding hidden numbers, etc. As teams advance through the castle, they earn points based on how many attempts it takes them to solve each clue. Hints are available, but will come at a cost. The team that escapes with the most points wins!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an ideal team size?
We can accommodate any size group. The group is then broken down into teams. Recommended team size is 5 people to maximize engagement and for ease of communication, but team size can be larger if desired.
How much time is needed?
We have 30, 60, 90 and 120-minute long games. Unless your schedule is limited, we find that games lasting at least one hour get the highest reviews.
Where do we play?
These virtual escape rooms are designed to be played wherever in the world you are located using an app downloaded onto players’ own phones or tablets. Players will also “meet” virtually to collaborate using Zoom OR your organization’s approved web or phone conferencing platform such as WebEx, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, or similar.
How do we know what to do?
- All of our virtual escape rooms must be booked in advance by contacting us. Once you have selected which virtual escape room you’d like to do, your event organizer will be e-introduced to their Wildly Different Game Master. The Game Master will set-up the experience for your group and provide your event organizer an electronic document that can be shared with each participant so they will know what to expect during the experience and can be prepared ahead of the game.
- Your participants use their own phone or tablet (iOS or Android), with Wi-Fi or cellular data capabilities, to download our app and play the game. Teams will meet over the web or via phone conferencing (preferably on a different device such as a laptop), and the access code to join your private game in the app on your mobile device will be provided during the event kick-off. Teammates will collaborate and solve the clues and puzzles they see on their own devices.
- We highly recommend a live kick-off and ending with a Wildly Different Game Master. Your Game Master will also be available for support throughout the game via a Messaging feature in the app and Help phone line and/or on the main room of the meeting platform to answer questions and assist players during the game if needed.
