Scrap Zelda said:
Real Escape Game, created by SCRAP Entertainment, is a unique and interactive live puzzle event where teams solve mysteries and clues within a time limit.

You and your fellow players are heroes actually inside the story who must escape from a scenario filled with challenging puzzles and other brainteasers.

There will be multiple teams during each game, all trying to escape. Players are encouraged to communicate frequently and divide tasks efficiently in order to solve all the puzzles before time runs out.

If you are a person who likes answering riddles, solving complex puzzles, or are just looking for a good mental challenge, this event is for you!

This is NOT a maze or traditional escape room! It is a fully hosted, story-based escape event designed for puzzle fans and fans of the Zelda franchise.

This Zelda event looks to be scheduled for various dates in 2017 in a few select US cities. After tickets are purchased, teams are assembled at the venue, and the fun begins!

lol. My first thought was why is there this troll thread about scrapping Zelda? Abdoo, you madman!

Man, this sounds cool. Lucky Americans.

@Shadowlink

Hey, I thought the same thing when I saw NoA tweet about it. I was VERY confused for a whole 23 seconds.

Escape rooms are fun! Plus, I'm only about an hour and a half north of Seattle, so I'm down!

Is it just me or is the series feeling kind of cluttered? Almost disposable? To me Zelda games used to be grand adventures that would come out once (or twice) a generation. Now original games are buried among remakes and spin-offs. But this something like the fourth Zelda game (I think) that I am passing on in a row. Breath of the Wild looks good but I can't help but feel that games like this cheapen the series as a whole.

EDIT: I see that it's more of an event then a game so I guess my post doesn't apply to this particular topic. I still think the series as a whole could do with some reigning in.

I love me some escape rooms, and I love the Zelda series!

Maybe not enough to drive across the country for, though.

@GameDadGrant

I tweeted them to see if any other cities were going to be added to the list. No response so far.

@Abdooooo

Nintendo hasn't seemed too keen on coming to Detroit. The closest we got was the Zelda Symphony thing in Chicago.

Obviously, Chicago isn't Detroit. lulz.

@Stephen

Saying Zelda is being oversaturated because of HD remakes is like saying Star Wars is being oversaturated because of BluRay re-releases. Ignore them and enjoy Episode VII/Breath of the Wilds!

...however, saying Zelda is being oversaturated because of spin-offs is like saying Star Wars is being oversaturated because of... spin-offs. I agree, it's lame, and we better not get to the point where we get another Hyrule Warriors every year. (Tri Force Heroes wasn't a spin-off but was still strangely underwhelming. Hopefully that was a one-off thing too.)

Regardless, this is something that has already proven to be a really fun social activity. Bringing people together to have fun with a Zelda theme and endorsed by Nintendo? Sign me up!

I thought this was about Paper Zelda.

Man, do I want a cel-shaded Metroid...

Coming to Chicago, hmm.

Looks like it sells out FAST though. Would have to be there right when it goes on sale.
