Escape from the Office (and e-Discovery) This Holiday Season [Game]

Brendan Ryan

This holiday season, we break our Relativity Blog tradition of a post with advice for talking about e-discovery with family around the dinner table. Instead, we offer a diversion.

It’s ‘Escape from the Office,’ a quick 8-bit online game we created to simulate the thrill of using Relativity to simplify and accelerate e-discovery—so much so that you’re not stuck in the office on a holiday dealing with work when you could be at home enlightening your family on what exactly e-discovery even is.


  • We didn’t task our growing team of talented engineers to help develop this game. This is what happens when a few marketers reach the end of a two-week sprint and approach a few days off for Thanksgiving. If we distracted developers from the constant innovation of the platform, the game would be way cooler.
  • We didn’t get it to work on mobile devices (see point above).
  • There are sound effects, so mute your speakers now if you don’t want your boss, your assistant, or your meeting mates to know what you’re really doing.
