How to start work an escape game? As in any creative business, the escape room basis, its main guarantee of vitality and profitability is the scenario. But why is it so important?

Scenario for a escape room is necessary to:

  • Plan approximate construction cost.

Based on the scenario, you can get first detailed idea of what materials are required for repairs, furniture, decorations, and props;

  • Find premises and make repair is it.

Scenario allows understand what premises size you need, what design you need. Also, scenario describes where and how will be located riddles. Often assembling puzzles requires demolition or construction of walls, installation or dismantling of doors, work with electrical wiring. If to start repairs without a script, there is a considerable risk that you will have to remake somethings;

  • It is logical to arrange riddles, making walkthrough of the game as interesting as possible;

  • Tell the story as it was planned, without surprises and ridiculous situations.

Thus, correctly written scenario makes possible to calculate the complexity of creation, project approximate cost, and unite in a single, logical system puzzles, plot and room, where the game is planned to be created.

And what should escape room script include?

The qualitative scenario necessarily contains:

  • A brief synopsis of the story on which escape game will be created;

  • The plan with interior arrangement and puzzles;

  • Sketches describing the escape room design, props, riddles;

  • A step-by-step logical puzzles algorithm and plot twists, forming a fascinating story;

  • Riddles description, their meaning, the principle of work.

Focusing on the scenario, you can plan all necessary works to create an escape room, as well as their orderly and targeted execution. That's why a literate, consistent script that takes into account any little things is not an easy, but extremely important task for creating a successful escape room.
