This week we’re joined by Nick Moran, creative director and Co-founder of Time Run; the ground breaking escape room specialists. Nick talks us through their newest project, a collaboration with Hartswood Films and Sherlock writers Mark Gattiss and Steven Moffat.
“Sherlock: The Game Is Now” has taken escape rooms to the next level with ingenious game play, unparalleled narrative, and digital appearances from the stars of the show themselves. Nick tells us how it all came together for him and his business partners, after a series of less successful ventures.
