About

…And the award goes to the least creatively named blog goes to me! 👏

I created The Escape Roomer in Feb 2020 as a way of documenting (and getting all excited about) all the escape rooms I’ve played! Yes, yes, I know! Yet ANOTHER escape room blog. But why not? The world needs a little more fun in it. I now also review board games, video games, books and more. If it’s puzzle based and a bit escape room vibey, I’ll give it a go!

About Me

A little about me? I’m 24, living in London, UK and I identify as female (she/her pronouns). I have blue hair, drink way too much tea, and adore 80s music. My favourite genre(s) of escape games are: Sci-Fi, 80s, Magic, Spooky, and anything that doesn’t take itself too seriously. I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat, so no horror for me please!

Full Disclosure ▼

Employment: In 2019-20 I was employed and freelanced in the escape room industry as a game designer / marketing professional. I (obviously) do not review games I have been involved in the design with (in any capacity), but I MAY, post-employment, objectively review a game by a company I was involved in the marketing of! For full transparency, you can see my escape room design portfolio here. I currently (post 2020) work in the videogame industry, same rules apply. In any case, all opinions my own, and my involvement does not consciously affect a review in any way.

Sourcing Games: Free games are often sent in exchange for writing a review on this website. This does not affect the content of my review in any way. Gifted games are tagged with ‘Gifted’ for full transparency.

Review Policy ▼

I created this blog as a hobby project to support the escape room industry. As such, I do not write negative reviews. This is not because I’m afraid to write a negative opinion – it’s because there are many other review sites out there that you can go to for critique. I prefer to focus on the positives and celebrate whatever aspect of the creator’s work I enjoyed. If I didn’t like a game, I choose not to review it and instead will always send my feedback to the creators so they may improve their game.

Copyright ▼

It goes without saying that everything on the blog belongs to me, the blogger. Please, please do not use any of my photographs, copy or assets without permission. The only exception is if I have written a review of your game, you may use my work e.g. quotes or photographs in your marketing with credit.
