This experiential alternate reality adventure requires players book a time to undergo each chapter in this three-part adventure series. The puppet masters at Swamp Motel will oversee your team’s progress in real-time, ensuring that each episode is an organic, live event with a ticking clock.
“I’ve always been intrigued by Alternate Reality Games because they blur the line between reality and fantasy in a way that makes the real world seem more magical and full of possibilities,” said Swamp Motel co-founder Ollie Jones. “By staging Isklander as an online experience, we were able to create an investigation that requires a heavy dose of outside the box thinking, where it’s not clear where the game ends and reality begins. Imagine an escape room where it’s not even clear where the boundaries of the room are! That’s an experience unlike any other.”
