…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 The Escape Roomer
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!

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 sometimes sent with the expectation I review them on completion. I take great care to ensure that this does not affect the content of my review in any way. Gifted games are tagged with ‘Gifted‘ for full transparency.
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.
It goes without saying that everything on the blog belongs to me, the blogger. If I take photographs of your game, you may use them for your marketing with credit / permission. Please do not use my content or photographs for any other reason!
