Escape rooms are one of our favorite activities that we love to do here at Nerd Reactor. One of the games by Hatch Escapes had us feeling like a labrat by actually building a giant set and props. However, once quarantine hit, it put a damper on the hobby. There are escape room creators who have turned to online escape rooms to immerse us. As for Hatch Escapes, the team has partnered up with Arvind Ethan David (Broadway’s Jagged Little Pill, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) to create Mother of Frankenstein, an immersive gaming experience at home.
