Google Built An Escape Room That Requires Apps To Get Out

Be honest, does stuff like this appeal to any of you? They make it look all exciting but I can't see paying good money to be locked in a room with my friends. Well, unless there is alcohol involved, but then no one would be trying to escape. wink

Created by We Are Social, Premiأ¨re Piأ¨ce will open at an undisclosed location in the heart of Paris. The campaign builds on the escape room trend, in which you and a bunch of friends pay to get locked in a room for an hour or two, left to solve puzzles and work in collaboration to find a way out. Last month, the Toronto Film Festival built an escape room that lives on Instagram. (Google's is a physical room, but uses virtual tools as a central conceit.)
