Hello, Escaper! From
time to time, escape room experts play and review our rooms. One of the newest
games in our catalog is Curse on the Emerald Seas. It’s a haunted pirate ship
room, and a fan favorite here at Puzzle Effect. 🏴‍☠️

Behind the Scenes

Ever wonder how our escape
rooms come to life? It all starts with an idea. 💡 Game designer Alex Elder shares his views on
Curse on the Emerald Seas:

What is your
favorite part about the room?

“The narrative
it builds. It’s a really cool story if you explore it.”

What are you most
looking forward to players experiencing?

“There’s a few
puzzles that are really fun to interact with. I’m excited to see how they’re
received. Also the theme of the room. It’s a fun spin on a common theme.”

What influenced or
inspired you as you created the puzzles?

“I wanted to
experience the more mythic side of the pirate theme. If you think about the theme
just right, it might give you a little edge in the room.”

Recently, the team at
Escape Room Artist released their analysis of the room. We absolutely love their
analysis of the game! ✍️

Curse on the Emerald Seas was a challenging escape room with some complex, layered puzzles. These were well-clued, and especially satisfying solves with multiple “aha” moments.”

A less recent, but
still fantastic review of this room by Escape Room Addicts: 📝

“Everything in the room was of high quality and very sturdily built, including props and puzzles, as well as structural elements like floor boards, tables and poles. We especially loved the use of heavy chains and shackle locks, which felt highly relevant and on-theme for the room.”
