The best immersive experience
It was after a trip to the United States that three friends decided in 2015 to import an activity discovered across the Atlantic. At the time, they were among the pioneers of Escape Games in France, founding John Doe in Lille. Misleadingly described as a geek activity, the founders’ aim is to create entertainment accessible to all. That’s why they naturally chose the theme of Secret Agents.
Buoyed by its rapid success, the network is expanding throughout France until 2019 with the opening of 4 further branches, with the ambition of opening one every year!
An ever-expanding network of secret agents throughout France!
A strong universe, the Secret Agents
With the John Doe spy agency, players become real Secret Agents on missions all over the world. From Las Vegas to the heart of Tibet, from Texas to the Prague region, the headquarters offers a truly immersive adventure anywhere on the planet.
Indeed, the agency has been infiltrated and the identities of our agents in the field have been compromised. So we’re calling on anonymous people to follow in their footsteps. They’ll have to infiltrate their last known positions, find out what’s happened to them and then escape to bring us back this valuable information.
Watch out, though, as members of Eclipse, a malevolent organization and lifelong enemy, will do everything they can to get in your way!
Events, the key to our success
Since its creation, John Doe has never ceased to take part in large-scale projects with partners from all horizons. In 2016 and 2020, it was on a moving TGV between Paris and Lille, then Paris and Barcelona, that our company had the chance to run a real Escape Game. Whether it’s in a soccer stadium in Lille, on a military ship in Nantes, during Série Mania, the international series festival, since 2017 during Heritage Days, on a barge, in castles, our team has no shortage of creativity to bring the passion for gaming to life and share it in all kinds of unusual places.
Whether the initiative comes from John Doe or one of our partners, we’re always ready to give our players a great adventure, no matter how crazy or difficult the project!
100,000 agents on assignment by 2021
