Can't meet up with your friends face to face? Need a good icebreaker activity for a work social? Sitting at home, twiddling your thumbs? Try out our Dungeon Escape! Navigate through three levels, interacting with objects and people in our escape room to solve puzzles and find freedom.
Note: Each level takes 20-30 minutes to complete, so plan for this to take about an hour. This activity is best played with others and will show you some of the best features of Gather.
Make Your Dungeon Map
First, head to gather.town/app. Click Create a new space. In the Template picker, under Experience, select Dungeon Escape. Enter a custom Space name, let us know why you're building this Space, and click Create space.
Select your character, set your A/V options, and click Join the Gathering. The Space opens, and you're in the entrance of the map. There are a few basic instructions on movement and interaction. If you're exploring on your own, go ahead and get started. If you're playing with other participants, you'll need to share the link.
Click the Gather icon in your Left Nav Menu. Select Invite people. Email the invite or copy the link and send it on! (Need help? Read more about inviting guests to your Space.)
Throughout the space, notes and interactive objects will give you tips and tricks to move forward. Press the x key to view and close the notes. If you stay close to your team members, you'll be able to video stream and talk your way through the map together.
Reviewed the notes in the tavern? Looks like you're ready to get started. Good luck!
