Breakouts and Puzzles

Metaverse has all of the features to create augmented reality Breakouts, puzzles and Geocaches! The most basic is an Experience that gives a user a set of clues and then asks for a password. Watch the video below to learn how to build a basic puzzle.

Follow these steps to get started:

or clone this Experience

  1. Create a new Experience and give it a title
  2. Configure your Character Scene by adding dialogue, a character and a button. Typically this Scene sets up the story/riddle that a user will have to solve.
  3. Add a button to transition to the next Scene
  4. Add a new Scene with three buttons: Crack the code, Clues and Exit. Crack the code will transition to a text input Scene where a user can type the code. Clues will show the user a series of images using character scenes. Exit will end the Experience if a user gives up.
  5. Add a text input Scene and transition that Scene to a Text Block that will check if a user entered the right code.
  6. Add two Character Scenes for if a user entered the right code and if a they entered the wrong code.
  7. End the Experience on the correct code Scene by adding a button and choosing “End Experience” as the transition.
  8. Transition the incorrect response scene back to the main puzzle Scene (the Scene that presents three options: crack the code, clues and exit).
  9. Add three Character Scenes for clues. These Scenes will only have a character and buttons.
  10. Choose images to use as clues and import them into each of the Character Scenes.
  11. Transition the “Clues” button to the first transition Scene and transition subsequent clue Scenes together.
  12. Transition the last clue Scene back to the main puzzle Scene.

Remix this Experience by adding multiple codes, digital items, timers instead of buttons, placing it at a location, add video/photo clues, embed websites and SO much more!

Teachers consider turning physical Breakout boxes into digital ones, or add a AR Breakout to a physical Breakout box.
