Started in early 2019 as a concept, the project came together through the collaboration of multiple classes and departments at UT Austin. This escape room had participants take on the roles of weather scientists trying to warn the mainland of an incoming storm by sending vital data from a research station off the coast of Corpus Christie, TX. To accomplish this, participants would solve many traditional escape room puzzles alongside integrated media puzzles like an interactive map puzzle utilizing magnetic switches and interaction with the Unity Game Engine.
