Escape the Office - a Storyline2 game

May 08, 2017

Hi All

Not so long ago I went on a hen weekend and did an Escape the Room game – it was loads of fun, but it got me thinking – could I not build something like this in Storyline?

I wanted to look at compiling a load of different elements in to one course to show the world what we here at Willow DNA are capable of with tools like Storyline2. I think that sometimes people get stuck on what they have seen in the past and the same old elearning routines.

We decided to make something totally fun and not focused on compliance or health and safety but on what is possible within Storyline so that we can show clients something totally different – and then talk to them about how the different elements could be applied to their learning.

For the next three weeks we have a competition running for Learning At Work Week (15th – 19th May) in which you can win a £50 Amazon voucher for completing the fastest time – Ts and Cs apply and only UK residents over 18 can enter – but anyone can have a go at playing the game.

Elearning heroes is a great resource and I certainly couldn’t have built it without you guys. I have used some great downloads and tutorials from here: Exporting values – Kate Robertson, Javascript Timer – Christopher Krieger and used Dave Mozealous’ Better Calculator as a guide to building the phone.

Here is the link to see the game:

Thanks for the screen shot Wendy

Was it like that after you clicked the lights? or like that to start?

The lights should just turn on and off - that is the only states they have - but in your image it looks like the box boarder is still there - as in it is trying to show the state but the image with in the box is missing...

We did lots of testing on this - mostly on Windows and Chrome and had no problems so I cant think what might be making it do this behaviour!
