As people look back on those carefree times where they could plan their activities with friends and go to public places without holding back a sneeze, they can’t help but notice how much times have changed, and how much the pandemic has affected the way they work, socialize and unwind.
In some states in the USA and some provinces in Canada, strict social distancing rules and even shut downs remain in place for the majority of non-essential small businesses, which includes gaming facilities and escape rooms. Having been forced to keep their doors closed to the public, many of these small businesses have been exploring different ways to move their operations online.
The digital world has shown people that there are many ways they can stay connected, even during strict lockdowns – it’s just a matter of how creative they are. With this in mind, the creative folks at Gaggle Studios developed a fully integrated video chat gaming platform. “A place to play games and have adventures with friends,” as the company describes it. Party games, card games and online escape rooms, these guys have taken gaming to a whole new level.
So what is this novelty?
Basically, all people need to do is to sign up, download the game they want to play, and set up the account. The games work with a webcam and a microphone and have been designed as a group activity. Once people download the game, launch it and create an account, simply enter the key sent in the purchase email and it is set to play! Remember, the gaming platform has video chat built in, which means people won’t have to download any additional software!
For those who are not that interested in escape rooms and solving mysteries, there are also plenty of online party games they can play. The number of players depends on the individual game, but the range is from 2 players all the way up to 16. The games are currently desktop oriented, but certain games can be played via tablet and mobile phones. People can play them with members of their household too.
So whether people are looking for some Saturday night fun with friends or simply love mysteries and escape rooms, this is what they have been waiting for. Have fun solving clues and puzzles and exercise their brain muscles in this one-of-a-kind platform. It’s an awesome way to connect with friends and family, and they’re great team building activities too!
