Obsidem Games offers unique and interactive live-action adventure games in which players become active participants in our stories and must work as a team to solve intriguing problems, escape from precarious situations, and unravel the plot before time runs out!
Inspired by video games, TV shows and movies, our goal is to bring these experiences to life and challenge you in a thrilling way, all while giving you a sense of total immersion, using only the most realistic environments we could build.
How does it all work? Before participating in one of our scenarios, your team will be briefed on the story, your roles and objectives, but once you’re inside the game - you’re on your own! You’ll need to explore your surroundings, make use of logic and be relentlessly resourceful if you want to succeed.
If you’re ready for a challenge and looking for something to do in Montreal that's out of the ordinary, then this is for you! Bring your friends, family or co-workers and strengthen relationships through teamwork by trying out one of our 4 uniquely challenging scenarios. It's the ultimate attraction! Great for adults and teens alike.
In a few words: realism and logic.
If you were kidnapped in real life, would you have puzzles to solve in order to escape? No, you'd use your wits, ingenuity and objects around you. If you were in a Space Station, would you have to solve a Sudoku to open a locked door? Of course not.
When creating our games, we keep this logic in mind and strive to integrate puzzles, tasks and objectives that actually make sense within the context of the scenario. This allows us to create immersive adventures that play out more like a movie or a video game, rather then an escape room.

However, we ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your reserved slot so that we can explain the rules of the game to you, and that you reserve another 15 minutes after the game is over for a debrief.
Q. I noticed cameras in the rooms. Are you recording us?
A. The cameras in the room are only used to supervise the game and for safety purposes. We do not record the games, nor do we sell videos to participants.

Q. Will I be paired with people I do not know?
A. If your group counts for less than the maximum number of players allowed in a room, there's always a chance that other players will join your team. To make sure you have a game all to yourself, you must reserve & pay for the maximum number of players allowed in the scenario.
