This Online Escape Game Lets You Play With Your Friends Without Leaving Home

Montrealers are stuck at home and dreaming of their eventual escape. But they might not need to wait to experience that sweet, sweet sense of release. A locally-produced online escape game allows you to virtually test your skills and challenge your friends from the comfort and safety of your own apartment. 

"For the last 10 days, Défi-Évasion has not quarantined its creativity," the Quebec City-based company says in a Facebook post.

"Active for five years on the escape game scene, we want to continue to transmit our passion to you" and "distract you by creating Défi-Évasion Chez Soi." 

The online game is like a big virtual maze of riddles in which you can take several different paths. The goal is simply to find the answers to the challenges in order to win.

You'll have more than an hour and a half to keep yourself and your team busy, depending on how quickly you can solve the puzzles.

All you need to participate is a Wi-Fi connection. Once you have that, all you have to do is sign up online with friends who want to participate.

There is a fee of $14 before taxes per person to access the game and you can connect up to six participants.

There is no precise order to complete the various tests, but the Défi-Évasion team has described the plot as "difficult." 

On March 28, the team behind the project announced the arrival of a second version for fans who wish to continue their adventure.

This initiative was already in the works when the closure of non-essential businesses in Quebec brought the company's usual activities to a halt.

But, fortunately, the situation became an opportunity to accelerate its production.

Get all the details below.
