Hi Everyone, my name is Sam Tisdale! Let me tell you a story.
In the fall of 2016, I attended a bachelor party in celebration of my friend’s upcoming wedding. After a delightful brunch at Oddfellow’s Cafe on Capitol Hill, the lot of us walked over to an unusual business called only…Puzzle Break. Once there, we were informed that we would be locked in a room for an hour and would have to solve puzzles and brain teasers in order to escape from The Midnight Carnival. Oooooh….spooky!
Of course, I had never heard of anything so ridiculous in my entire life. Locked in a room? And we have to solve riddles and puzzles in order to find a way out? Come on. There is no way that anyone could ever find such a horrible idea enjoyable, much less actually spend their hard-earned dollars on such an ordeal.
I emerged from the room an hour later, transformed. The experience was absolutely mesmerizing. Furthermore, a single thought kept creeping into my brain over the course of the following days:
I’ll bet that I can create something just as special.
So I did. A month later, The Madness From the Sea was born. And to this day, the obsession with telling stories through puzzles and games continues.
Let’s see what we can build together.
