Daedalus

The Problem:

Understanding how people coalesce and adapt to problems is incredibly important for organizations that need to build teams. Currently there is no way to measure how teams adapt outside of a laboratory setting.

The solution:

This week-long game pits small teams of players against each other in a race to solve puzzles over Slack and in the real world. In essence this is a very difficult text based “escape the room.” The game uses text, images, and video to tell the story of Daedalus, a problem-solving AI that the players must train by solving puzzles. Each puzzle was designed based on foundational research and human-centered design to maximize uncertainty and provide real, measurable results.
