The Shadow Initiation

Love escape rooms and adventure games? We've turned the South Australian Museum into an escape room without walls!

The Shadow Initiation is an adventure game that is facilitated by a tablet, and can be played by up to 4 people per tablet. It is appropriate for anyone 7 to 107 years.

The game takes just over 1 hour and there are more than 40 tasks to attempt. It is IMPOSSIBLE to complete them all in one game. Choose wisely, be strategic, and attempt to earn as many points as you can.

Covering the majority of the Museum’s permanent displays, The Shadow Initiation is a digital adventure game that will encourage you to see your favourite Museum galleries and objects in a new light.
