I would love to open my own escape room in Northampton, which will be the first live horror game of it's kind around here.

"Little Anna Clayhorn has gone missing. She was last seen gathering herbs on the edge of the woods out by the abandoned Tattershall house.  Nobody has been anywhere near that place since the Tattershall's butchered bodies were found there on Halloween eve over 50 years ago.  Although the local police won't admit it, they suspect demonic forces had something to do with the mass murder.

Anna's parents have called the local vicar and as he approaches the area she was last spotted, he can't help but feel a wave of dread sweep over him.  Is that voices he can hear whispering, taunting him from the house, or have the ghost stories just got him spooked?

As the newest occult investigators that the church has employed, it is up to you to enter the house, find young Anna Clayhorn and put an end to this evil.  The witching hour of Halloween approaches though and you will have to be quick in order to prevent a repeat of that fateful evening 50 years ago..."

I have been an escape room enthusiast for some time now.  The first game I ever played was in Romania whilst I was on holiday and it was AMAZING!  It really got me hooked and as soon as I got home, I was Googling for escape rooms in Northampton.  Whilst there are a few here, I was severely disappointed with the quality of the game compared to what I had experienced abroad.

For the last year or so, I have been working on my story, room setup and puzzles.  I don't want to reveal too much here as surely you will want to play the game, right?!  All I will say is that it will be an absolutely fantastic game but I need your support to get it off the ground!  I have identified a suitable location close to the town centre to house the game, I just need to realise the funds to get it built and open!  Although escape rooms have been around for over a decade now, with no decline in their popularity, the banks still seem reticent to loan to new operators as they see it as a "flash in the pan".  Over 10 years is a very long flash!

For £5000 I can get the basics of the room set up and I have some savings of my own for the lease and associated costs etc.  Not only would you be supporting a small local business, you would also be helping me make my dreams come true and escape the corporate rat race!
