The Truth About Edith
The Truth About Edith is an hour-long, cooperative, timed adventure sprinkled with interactive theater and a good dose of humor! This game is an eccentric mix of a video game, an escape room, and a great who-done-it story.
This is a 4 player game
Tickets are $25 per player
Multiple people can share 1 computer and count as 1 player, as long as there are 4 computers total connected to the game!
Each player needs a computer/laptop with either Chrome or Firefox
For kids age 13 and under, we recommend there be at least one adult playing with the group! This game is family friendly, but complex! We find it can be hard for kids to navigate on their own.
You may recognize Edith Humphreys, your sweet neighbor with 24 cats. You may have even helped her out, snooped around her apartment. But there's something about Edith that doesn't quite add up... she looks way younger than she is, she says she was born in 1902 but that she's 97 years young... and she lives at a business called Mad Genius Escapes?! What is going on here...

But one night, someone took a bite out of their universe and sent them flying onto the ground! The road home has many obstacles, but if the Boobanos work together they just might make it home!

$20/player for the hour-long game

Frequently asked questions about our Virtual Games
What technology will I need for the virtual games?
We have more than 4 players, can we still play The Truth About Edith?
The Truth About Edith was designed for 4 players, and at many points each player controls one piece of the puzzle and all four are needed. This is why there have to be exactly 4 computers connected. However, multiple people are welcome to share one computer and count as one player. If you have a larger group, we recommend playing Boobano Farm! We can also run multiple games of Truth About Edith simultaneously -- up to 12 players can play in one hour, depending on the time/date. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Are Cat Lady and The Truth About Edith different?
In addition to being different formats (physical escape room vs virtual game), Cat Lady and The Truth About Edith are completely different games with completely different puzzles. If you have played our physical Cat Lady game, there will be a couple of little inside jokes for you in The Truth About Edith. You do not need to have played Cat Lady to understand or fully enjoy The Truth About Edith.
Is Boobano Farm like Truth About Edith?
Boobano Farm is a very different experience from Edith - think more collaboration, more communication, more teamwork towards clearer goals. In Boobano Farm, you often know what you have to do - it's all about figuring out how to work together to complete your journey in the least amount of time!
Can you host large groups and team buildings? Do you make custom games?
Yes and yes! We have recently updated our capability and are able to host groups of up to 200 players per hour! Players can be split into group sizes of your choosing and the games are still interactive and collaborative.
