About the event

We needed to create a game that surpasses any other Real Escape Game.
Initially, we were going to create an event for when the lockdown settled down, yet a week later this project became one of our biggest games to date. It changed the direction that Real Escape Games were headed.

The main director Yamamoto's outcry was heard, "The game as it is won't become a legend. Let's take 2 hours and come up with a legendary idea."
I don't recall if the idea came to us within those 2 hours... I think it came to us during an online call we had that night. We knew that if we followed this road, the game can become legendary.
Speaking to the villagers through a video call.
Who is the werewolf.
A village in lockdown, villagers stating their frustrations through video calls, and hunting for the werewolf.
The players would study the villagers closely while solving puzzles left in the past.
We felt a connection.
This is a game that was created because of the current situation.
A game that needed to be created.
Something that can reignite the flames in everyone's heart like the event we discovered 13 years ago.
While we were stuck in our homes in the spring of 2020, we spoke passionately every night about this game.
Every time anyone said they came up with a new idea, our engines were roaring.
We were in the middle of a blue ocean with no island in sight.
What was born as a result was a new style of Real Escape Game, online.
We wanted to bring you a new event as soon as possible, and this was our answer.
