In June 2021, the Eventzee team created and launched a special scavenger hunt for CrimeCon, a true crime convention in Austin, Texas. Utilizing Eventzee technology, Oxygen’s CrimeCon Challenge: The Hunt is On offered both in-person conference participants and virtual attendees the opportunity to test their knowledge of true crime, interacting with convention vendor booths or virtual spaces, and solving mysteries to win prizes!
There were two CrimeCon hunts attendees could join — the Austin hunt and the Virtual hunt. The former was for attendees at the in-person event in Austin, TX from June 4-6, while the latter was for those who had signed up for Virtual Access Badges.
“We were excited to be part of an event as highly anticipated as CrimeCon,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “As fellow fans, our team enjoyed working with CrimeCon staff to create an event designed to engage true crime followers.”
Both hunts featured photo, video, text, and quiz challenges. They also featured QR Code challenges tailored to each event. Through text and quiz challenges, players were tested on shows in Oxygen’s roster, such as Cold Justice and Snapped, and also on more general facts relating to true crime. Many of these challenges also included clips from the popular shows using Eventzee’s video hosting feature.
Meanwhile, through photo and video challenges, players were invited to step into the role of detective, socialize with other attendees, and more. These challenges encouraged players to get creative and offered CrimeCon great content for sharing the convention’s experiences.
For those who love solving murder mystery puzzles, a special QR code game was created. Attendees were tasked with tracking down hidden QR code “fingerprints” hidden throughout the event space, or in digital spaces, in order to solve a fictional crime. As each code was scanned players were awarded “letters” in the My Badges section of the app. Each QR code revealed a new letter and players had to solve for the name of the culprit by unscrambling all of the letters.
