What’s Mission: Unlock Enoch?
A real-world challenge, that puts the smartest masterminds out there to the ultimate test. The game was invented at an „Escape Room Game Jam“ at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, organized by the MIT Game Lab and Dr. Konstantin Mitgutsch, Affiliate Researcher at the MIT Game Lab and Founder of Playful Solutions, Vienna, and is inspired by ‘MindGamers’ The Movie by Terra Mater. It is a unique and interactive event in 3 stages, where players solve challenges within a time limit. The challenge takes you from proving your skills online, to competing in teams at local Qualifier Events, to the World Finals: an ultimate mixed-reality Escape Room, in Budapest March 2017.
