Just because we're socially distanced doesn't mean we can't have fun together.
We're just past Thanksgiving and though vaccines have been announced, they're not here yet and meanwhile the number of new cases is shooting through the roof. So, we're staying home.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't still play an escape room with our friends and family! In fact now it's easier than ever!
Live Remote Bunker
Fox in a Box - Chicago is delighted to announce our new Live Remote Bunker. In the LRB, your group has the opportunity to save the world by experiencing the Bunker through your live actor/agent and helping them step by step stop a nuclear launch. The game is played over Zoom with up to 8 players who can be located anywhere in the world including the next room.
We are still working out the kinks in this experience, and that means that we can offer a substantial discount. Players who book using the code virtualbunker save 50% on their bookings. But this discount is only available for bookings through December 3, 2020.
Fox in a Box - Chicago also wants to draw your eye to our digital games. We have created two standalone games that can be played multiple people in different places.
A Perfect Day to Save the World
Now you can experience a Fox in a Box game in the comfort and safety of your own home. A Perfect Day to Save the World is an online 2D point-and-click adventure game you can play alone or with your friends. The game is reminiscent of the 90s style of point-and-click games, with simple graphics focusing on the puzzles that give you the feeling of playing our live escape rooms.
The number of players is not limited, but we recommend up to 4 players. After you purchase the game you can share the link with your friends. Read more about A Perfect Day to Save the World.
