Two Bit Circus Brings Immersive Social Gameplay to The Real World with Installation of Story Room at Dave & Busters

Experiential Entertainment Company Provides Multi-Player Interactive Game to National Chain

 November 3, 2015 (Los Angeles) Two Bit Circus, an experiential entertainment company announced it will bring its live-action, social immersion game, Story Room, to Dave & Buster’s, a leading owner and operator of dining and entertainment venues throughout North America, beginning with a test in that company’s Milpitas, California location early next year. Two Bit shared the news at the Intel Capital Summit shortly after announcing Intel’s involvement in the company’s $6.5 million Series A financing.

The three to six person, 30-minute experience is powered by Intel technology and immerses players in a series of narrative adventures solving puzzles and navigating a branching story. An evolution of the well-known “escape room” experience, the technology powering Story Room enables great flexibility in gameplay. Designed to help monetize under-utilized capacity, Story Room provides a new revenue stream for Dave & Buster’s and new entertainment solution for its customers.

“Story Room brings people together in social ways,” said Eric Gradman, Two Bit Circus co-founder and Mad Inventor. “We like escape rooms, but wanted more breadth in the experience.  What if the story demands more than just escaping a room?!  Our solution empowers a broad spectrum of stories.”

“We’re excited to continue our work with Two Bit Circus,” said Kevin Bachus, SVP Entertainment and Games Strategy for Dave & Buster’s. “Dave & Buster’s is committed to innovating in out-of-home entertainment and re-imagining the future of social games.”

With this project, Two Bit Circus expands its leadership in immersive storytelling on next-generation platforms. Story Room will be one of numerous public installations that turn passive entertainment into interactive experiences and bring people together in unexpected ways.
