We twinkle below

Tonight! @1930 GMT+2!

On Twitter, YouTube, and Twitch! (Sorry, Facebook!)

UNLOCK! Escape Room Adventure Game!

Around the World in 80 Minutes!

I don’t know what the song has to do with this, but I feel like I’m going outside for the first time in a long time, rejoicing at the brilliant sun.

Cancelled Due To a Migraine

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Seventy Three]

Totally planned on doing UNLOCK!’s Around The World in 80 Minutes escape room tonight, but a migraine showed up and punched me in the brain meat instead.

I’d rather be gaming.

But first the news:

I finally started streaming again this week – this past Wednesday – which was a bit of a trigger because immediately after streaming two weeks ago, I was laid off.

Also, I’ve been cut off from the Equinix Metal Streamyard account, so I streamed as myself.

With minimal branding.

It was very weird.

But also very good – because now streaming isn’t a trigger anymore.

Actually, I really liked it.

Tonight I was supposed to do live stream Escape Room: UNLOCK! Around the World in 80 Minutes, but it’s $TITLE

There’s a filter.

A process.

Adventurers in Oz, it finally did! is officially MINE!


Thank yooooooou!! !

But first the news:

When I got to 87 subscribers, I put out messages on Twitter, Facebook, and my blog asking for those last thirteen subscribers and within twenty-four hours had those plus another thirty two!

And, while normally, I’d post this before the stream, but I’m posting it after and …


We got out!

Or, in the case of UNLOCK! Star Wars Imperial Agents, we got the crystals.

But first the news:

We streamed at 1930 GMT+1 Central European Time on YouTube, Twitter / Periscope, Twitch, and Facebook and totally stopped the clock at ONE SECOND over the time limit.

Which would’ve been on time except I entered a code wrong and got a minute taken away from the timer.


Wanna see?
