What are Digital Breakouts?
Digital breakouts are like escape rooms. Your players need to find clues, solve a series of problems, or play games to gather the clues necessary to unlock digital locks and “Breakout” of the game.
Step One: Write your story
Want to engage your players? Start with a catchy story. Your story should entice them to play and work to finish your game. Possible story ideas:
Create Your Own Breakout!
Step Two: Gather/create your clues
Your clues can be visual, based on a riddle, a problem with a definite solution, or the answer/solution to a game.
Step Three: Create your locks
There are different types of locks you can use in a breakout.
Examples of Breakouts
Step Four: Create your Google Form
This is where your breakout happens! You will need to decide if you want your breakout to live in a Google Form or if you want the Form to be embedded in a website. If your breakout lives in your Form, you will include your clues as part of the questions. If you put your breakout on a website, then your Form will only house the locks.
Step Five: Build your breakout in Google Sites
If you want your breakout in a Google site, you can create one right from your Drive.
