At the beginning of 2019, a new TeamCrack location opened in Bielefeld with the Cabinet of Secrets. Every film adaptation always carries the risk of not living up to the specific ideas of the players. The newest room, The Walking Z, also makes use of a famous role model from the film world. We were therefore curious to see how TeamCrack managed to adapt The Walking Dead.
The new year started with a real bang. Dutch operator DarkPark announced on New Year’s Day that a “terrifying new experience” would be coming in the spring. After the pandemic-related postponement and various teasers via social media, we booked our ticket directly for the second weekend after the opening. The key data of the game already sounded promising in advance. With a playing time of 2.5 hours and a 4,000 square meters playing area, it was clear that great things were in store for us.
