|Overview:||Real world immersive experiences, from theme parks, to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, to Sleep No More in NYC, are exploding in popularity. These experiences can range in scale from intimate, one-on-one theater performances to hundreds of people moving through sequential escape room games or haunted houses. A well-crafted immersive environment has complicated mechanics and design choices working to invisibly convey stories, bestow agency, and move people through narrative worlds.|
