Meeting

A two player escape the room game. Winner of the Best Game Award from Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios and the Games Workshop. Created during the Global Game Jam 2015. Showcased at the curated show Now Play This at the Somerset House in the London Games Festival 2016.

Meeting is a game that challenges gaming practices, builds (or breaks) relationships and got pairs to laugh, shout and high-five each other. Put simply, it is a two player escape-the-room game with a twist. While most games grab people in different spaces around the world and connect them in virtual places, this game does the opposite. It grabs people in different virtual spaces and connects them in the physical. 

 

Reception

“I found Meeting beguiling and delightful. It uses a smart premise to explore the possibilities for collaborative game play. Its simple design creates a rich and enjoyable experience that has stayed with me.” - Matt Adams, Blast Theory

The game was exhibited at The Somerset House in what The Guardian called "a three-day extravaganza of 'outsider' games created by architects, poets and theatre folk." Meeting was showcased on Saturday where we had queues of players of all ages and I was interviewed on stage by The Guardian.
