Escape From immerses players in an hour-long, themed event centered on solving word puzzles. Recently, they pitted New Yorkers against the Monstrous Titans, in an Attack on Titan-themed event. Yo and Peter Tatara reflect on the logistics, pros and cons of a physical and mental event that challenged and engaged weeaboos in a full, interactive, outdoor setting. Where could they improve? What is the future for Escape From now that they are opening a new event in Brooklyn? The man who shaped the New York Anime Festival and New York Comic Con has some thoughts on immersive promotional events. Also, Yo talks about conserving water as America faces its next resource crisis: staying moist.
