Just in time for the 40th anniversary of The Shining, The Op has announced a new at-home escape room style game called The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel.
According to The Op’s official press release, The Shining-inspired game will be released this fall and allows fans to “Check into this immersive, real-time activity for adrenaline junkies and mystery solvers alike and experience what it’s like to flee for your life! The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel puts one or more players in the roles of the unhinged writer’s wife and son, Wendy and Danny, who must work together and find a way out of the mysterious resort!”
The game uses a play system called Coded Chronicles “…which requires you to unlock clues and solve puzzles for unique storytelling codes, the game allows you to use psychic abilities like “the shining” to get through more than two challenging hours of escaping the threat of homicidal Jack and the paranormal hotel itself! Since every Coded Chronicles™ game is enriched with thematic details and objectives, escaping captivity makes this edition’s difficulty level as hard as a dizzying hedge maze (minus the time limit)!”
And just in case you prefer traditional puzzles, The Op is also releasing a “Come Play with Us” 1000 piece puzzle featuring the tragic Grady twins.
