What is an escape room?

Real-life escape rooms are a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a themed room with others and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. 

Why are they so popular?

The combination of logic puzzles, teamwork, and mystery has made the escape room experience explode in popularity. Escape rooms can be found all around, with over 3,500 rooms world-wide.  We've made a game based on the growing trend and in doing so, learned about these awesome rooms.  Here is our  list of the top 5 escape rooms in the world. If you don't have a chance to visit any of these locations you can try it at home with our brand new game, Escape the Room: Mystery at the Stargazer's Manor

You and your friends have been kidnapped by Edward Tandy --a cannibalistic serial killer with a fine taste for unique electronics, taxidermy, and of course human flesh. He has created a sick and twisted game of sorts in his deceased mother's home. He hopes to weed out the unintelligent and find those who are "worthy of escaping" by his late mother's standards.

Everyone’s worst nightmare in real life – you’re stuck at work and can’t leave. You have one hour before the boss returns or you’ll be there forever.
