Escape Room Top 10
Meet the Team!
Alex - Founder, Creator and Games Host
Alex is the face of Co-Decode as well as the brains behind it. He plans the games and thinks up all our puzzles and props, building and programming them from scratch.
Originally a real-life archaeologist with a PhD in zooarchaeology, he has always had a passion for strategy games and a knack for craft-work. After playing his first escape room he instantly knew what he wanted to do next – add a unique live experience to his home town, Swindon!
Alex’s favourite escape games:
At Co-Decode: Sub Terra
In Wiltshire: SPECTRE @ Live Escape Salisbury
Elsewhere: Station X @ Time Trap Reading
Sofie - Creative Assistant and Games Host
Sofie creates our top-notch sets and illustrates our play-at-home Oldervik Online series. She also looks after our social media channels and hosts our Sub Terra room.
An archaeologist by training – in her case with a doctoral focus on Mediterranean cultures – she has a talent for painting and design. Addicted to books and whodunits, she loves a good mystery!
Sofie’s favourite escape games:
At Co-Decode: Professor Dunstan
In Wiltshire: Victoria’s Last Challenge @ 11th Hour, Chippenham
Elsewhere: SpellCraft @ Tulleys Escape Rooms
Tom - Games Host
Tom is the newest face of the Co-Decode team and hosts our experiences whilst Alex and Sofie work on new projects.
Outside of the escape room, Tom is currently studying for his A-Levels in Computer Science, Graphic Design, and Mathematics, with the aspiration to go into Game Development and Design at university.
Tom’s top tips to master escape rooms:
– Make sure you thoroughly read any instructions, not just the first section!
– Investigate everything you can, even if it looks like it may be locked at first.
– Communicate with your teammates and don’t solve in silence!
