We’re delighted to share that Tunnelling through Time, our online escape room adventure, has won Best Online Game at the 2021 Bullseye Awards.
Every year the Bullseye Awards, organized by Escape the Roomers, recognize the best games played by their reviewers throughout the year. In 2021, a team of 14 reviewers played over 12000 games across four categories: “In-Person Escape Rooms”, “Live-Hosted Games”, “Tabletop Games” and “Online Games”. The winners were announced at an online awards ceremony on 30th December.
The game has been designed and built by Deadlocked Escape Rooms, boutique live Escape Room company and one of the pioneers of virtual escape rooms. Their previous game ‘The Cyphstress’ won ‘Best Digital Escape Game’ at the International Bullseye Awards in 2020, and they have strived to make the most cinematic transmedia digital escape game in the world for The Brunel Museum.
Inspiration from the puzzles is drawn from real moments in the history of the Thames Tunnel. Escapees have to complete a number of tasks ranging from dinner party seating arrangements, a coconut shy, and some internet sleuthing.
Charlie Bond, one of the games creators said, “We’re thrilled” and went on to thank the Museum for bringing them in to create the game.
