Children of Maesaris - Chapter 7 - School’s Out ft. The Wild Optimists

May 2, 2018

The town of Peters Point is teeming with cultists, sacrifices, and a population ensorcelled into inaction. Bill tracks down the next victim of the Children of Maesaris, but will he be able to save them, solve the puzzles, and escape? This episode features a bomb, a robot, a classroom, some hooks, and a two-headed health worker.


Our guests this episode are The Wild Optimists, and creators of Escape Room in a Box, Ariel Ruben and Juliana Patel. Make sure to follow them on twitter and check out their spectacular games, and bespoke escape rooms!


We'll be performing a live show at the Up the Game conference in the Netherlands. If you are attending the conference, make sure to check it out, and say hi afterwards. The episode will also be recorded and uploaded.... at some time in the future.


If you want to play the room yourself, or see the supplementary puzzles as you listen, the links are below:
