Our love for games
We discovered the concept of escape rooms back in 2011 in Budapest, when it was barely known in Europe. We entered our first escape room as a group of friends, and 59 minutes and 40 seconds later, left it as to-be associates.
We debriefed and marveled at how we managed to connect information, sort out what was useful and what was not, find alternative solutions when we seemed stuck., etc. We felt so brilliant together, while we would definitely had given up had we been alone.
It was clear to us that escape rooms had the potential to tackle business challenges and appeal to professional audiences, while offering a bonding, interactive and entertaining experience.
Collock’s corporate escape rooms
For 3 years, we developed our gamification and HR expertises alongside the concept of corporate escape rooms. Collock is officialy created in 2015 to market our solutions and bring to life our vision of games.
IN OUR GAME DESIGN
We handpicked the characteristics of escape rooms that relate the most to the business world: communication, teamwork, time management, orientation, conflict resolution, priorization, etc. ; and leverage them to their full potential in our game design.
IN OUR GAME FORMATS
Traditional escape rooms require players to go to a fixed location, with a maxed capacity, to play scenarios that do not get renewed that often. We have at heart to offer a model relevant to companies’ needs :
- Physical escape rooms and games are transportable
- Extensive range of digital games for remote situations
- Can host several hundreds of players and are scalable
- Customizable content and hardware
- Available in French and English, more on request
- Animated by professional actors
- Backed up by field experts (cybersecurity, handicap, burnout, etc.)
