Course Overview

Explore the power of Creative Mode in Epic Games’ Fortnite by learning to build a digital Escape Room. Escape Rooms are some of the most fun you can have using your brain. Typically, in an Escape Room, teams of like-minded adventure-seekers solve puzzles and fiendish tasks under a strict time limit, all trying to “escape the room”, “avoid the zombies” or “discover the treasure”. And sometimes all of the above!

Now Fortnite’s Creative Mode engine allows us to make our own environments, game scenarios and rules of play, and we can try our hand at learning how to build an Escape Room.

Led by our Fortnite-loving, escape-room-building genius, tutors, you’ll think of different ways to set tests and trials for your Fortnite friends. We’ll explore how to set up logic puzzles, mazes and clues, and make your creation available to others. If we’re clever about it, you’ll practice some problem solving and computational skills thinking too.

This could be the future of entertainment. If you ever manage to escape this awesome Experience first!

FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar-style, using Zoom, with the main expert tutor showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning. Apart from Zoom, no other downloads are required.
