Can your team beat this escape room in under 30 minutes?
"This is really fun. I enjoyed this type of exercise. You don't really get to practice this type of thing unless you are really in an actual incident"— Sahal Ansari, Sr Operations Engineer
"It was a lot closer to a real actual incident than Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. We have played [Keep Talking] as well... we have done it in Ops in years past and this was just much more realistic."
"I would love to play it again, right now, and just have other people take a turn being incident manager. You are managing the process by which we are coming to a solution, rather than actually finding the solution yourself and delegation is the key there."— Jason Zinschlag, engineering manager of feature team at a large travel company
Do I need to "schedule a room"?
No, you do not need to book a room at a specific time. This is virtual. Use it anytime at your own pace. You do need to create the room and share the room invite link.
What is the ideal size of a party for this experience?
Three or more players. Three to five is ideal.
Do I need to prepare a scenario?
No, the incident response escape room contains everything you need. All you need to do is use your normal calendar software and setup a meeting.
I'm not technical, can I join the escape room?
Absolutely. You can join the Zoom, Meet, or whatever virtual meeting your team has setup. We've found that having leadership join to observe can be really useful during these sessions. It helps them understand what engineers are actually doing during an incident in a non-threatening environment.
Can I customize this to my companies needs?
Eventually, yes. Currently, no. What customizations do you expect?
Please and let's discuss.
That was awesome, why is this free?
We want to build the best online practice simulator for incidents and outages. We're making the first scenario free to get feedback from you and the rest of the community.
How much will you charge in the future?
Good question. We would love your input. Please and give us feedback on how you would like pricing to work. We're still figuring this out 😅
