Everyone's an astronaut at Escape Velocity. The game takes place on the Starliner Exodus, a spaceship bound for Argus IV—a planet that's all white sand beaches, all the time. It's an idyllic journey to an idyllic planet, until something goes wrong with the ship. Teams must figure out how to reach escape velocity, or run the risk of getting lost in space and having to ask a stranger for directions.
That's the story of the game, at least. Really, teams solve the immersive puzzle at the Artisan's Asylum, housed in an elaborate 30'x30' set. It's littered with futuristic props and clues that make it feel like a starship, and a veteran storyteller guides the team from behind the scenes.
