Every Game in This City

A podcast about playing well together

Every Game in This City is a podcast about playing well together. For Season 1, ten game designers, researchers, and curators who met up in Malaysia to try and play every escape room in Kuala Lumpur. Along the way we explored the city, made new friends, and recorded our daily discussions about playing over fifty escape rooms together. For Season 2, four familiar voices met up in China with four new designers, researchers, and curators to try and watch every game at the Dota 2 International Championships in Shanghai. Coming March 2020!

November 19, 2019 It’s the beginning of the end and we’re back to our regularly scheduled program after our surprise escape pod experience last episode! This time, Stephanie Boluk does a double take and finally gets a chance to debrief with the team and reflect a little bit on everything that has happened over the course of 7 days and 50 escape rooms (including new experiences we just had at the original Breakout in Avenue K and back at Lost in KL.) In our final interlude, Patrick, Amani, and Chad get tangled up in Mr. Oswald’s Greatest Show, a creepy marionette masterpiece where the players become the puppets and half the team tries out Exit: The Abandoned Cabin in a midnight escaping session. As the Kuala Lumpur trip comes to an end, we’re all starting to feel the Escape Room Effect.
