Escape the conference
Escape the conference was part of the first Escape the Conference game during APIDAYS Paris conference, in December 2018.
Attendees of the conference were invited to solve some riddles that were hidden in the venue.
To help them find the riddles, we created this Hypermedia Maze. The API gives them instructions of what to look for and some of the maze's cells contain clues of where the riddles are hidden. The concatenation of the riddles solutions forms a token that could be validated with the API.
