The production team dedicated 100 days to constructing 800 square meters of six immersive game scenes within the Cube Tower, setting the stage for an unparalleled visual experience. Leveraging cutting-edge AIGC technology, the show delivers cinematic effects reminiscent of a sci-fi blockbuster, enhancing the participants' journey through the challenges.

Each of the 18 players brings a unique blend of personalities and play styles to the table, with some excelling in logical reasoning, others in psychological gamesmanship, and some in eloquence. As they navigate through a mix of competition and cooperation, the show is poised to ignite moments of wonder and excitement.

With a primary focus on strategic games, the producer, Yan Ji, envisions this innovative genre as a fresh form of social entertainment tailored for Generation Z. Yan expressed optimism about the show's potential impact. "Offline murder mystery games or escape rooms have reshaped industries. Can strategic games catalyze new reactions? We eagerly anticipate the outcome."

Addressing potential viewership concerns, Yan confidently said: "We harbor no worries. While some viewers may find the format unfamiliar, we are certain it has the potential to evolve into a mainstream entertainment staple."

Emphasizing the lighthearted yet intellectually stimulating nature of strategic games, Yan expressed hopes of resonating with a broader young audience, sparking discussions, and fostering contemplation through the show's engaging content.
