Games of Foods

Games of Foods

Games of Food is increasing public awareness around balanced nutrition and a healthy lifestyle through the use of Escape games. During Escape games, groups of 2 to 8 players are locked in a room while they search for clues and solve a series of puzzles in order to escape the room within a time limit. Currently, there are thousands of Escape games worldwide, and due to their increasing popularity, they provide an opportunity to share educational, social, and environmental messages in an enjoyable way.  

The games being developed are communicating information about smart food choices, exposing participants to new and interesting information in a way that will increase overall knowledge and reduce common misconceptions related to food. Members of the public will take part in co-creating scenarios and puzzles by playing the games, then providing feedback and suggestions to refine the games for future players.
