Taiwan escape room organisers apologise after outcry over game based on Hong Kong police protest ‘siege’ of PolyU campus

by admin

The organisers of an escape room game in Taiwan which is based on the Hong Kong Polytechnic siege – one of the most brutal episodes of last year’s protests – have apologised and closed it down after sparking an online outcry for “re-traumatising” Hongkongers.

The activity was part of an exhibition about the unrest and was organised by VictoriTakao, a group of pro-democracy Hongkongers based in the southern city of Kaohsiung.

The group collaborated with the 831 Studio, which sells artwork by Hong Kong protesters living in exile, to present a room escape game based on the two-week police siege of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) a year ago.
