About these games

image taken from the game

Our online escape games are specifically designed to be played on your home computer or laptop. They are a mixture of escape rooms with their great variety of puzzles and tasks, and classic adventure games with their audio storytelling and detailed handpainted scenes.

The trilogy

Our first game, "Emergency Procedure", is the first part of a trilogy. Because we love trilogies, don't we? In this series players will follow in the footsteps of a famous science journalist. She is taking on a criminal consortium, trying to unveil and stop their dangerous environmental crimes.

Your team will play the role of her rather unhurried assistant, called Sascha. He is a lover of puzzles and challenges - just like you, probably - but he will soon have to prove that there's more to him than just pointing and clicking. That said... he needs your help!

  1. The first part (July 2020, "Emergency Procedure") revolves around uncovering what has happened to Sascha's Boss, Anne. Where has she gone, and what is that mysterious emergency procedure?
  2. The second part (autumn 2020) takes us deeper into the story. While we are trying to follow and rescue Anne, we also learn that there might be a way to stop the consortium.
  3. In the third and final part (scheduled for winter 2020) we are going to take a big trip to save lots of lives.

English translation

Our games are originally produced and published in german. There is lots of spoken text, and some written text, involved. This takes extra time and effort to translate properly, and to avoid errors. Thank you for your understanding.

And in case you are wondering: we deliberately chose not to hire native english speakers as narrators. We wanted to keep the vibe and the feeling of the place, and we believe a gentle german accent serves that purpose well.

How do online escape rooms work?

Our first game's title image

Online escape games are not a lackluster escape game surrogate for times of Covid19 self isolation. They are an exciting game format of their own, and a great alternative to real life escape games.

Basically, there are two types of online escapes:

If you have read the text above, you might have guessed already: our trilogy is of type 1. That means you won't be commanding our poor game masters with headcams.

Play them at home on your own laptop or computer, play them alone or with your team of friends or family. Gather around the screen, or get together with your friends around the globe via video chat to join the game in real time.

The most important thing is: we offer a unique blend of thematic puzzles in a beautiful, handpainted environment, lots of details, and an exciting and charming little story. All combined should give you about 80 minutes of playtime - although time is not limited, so you can just play at your own pace.

Features

  • Number of players: ideally 1-3
  • Playtime: not timed, but estimated 80 mins.
  • automatic savegames
  • play on multiple screens, play from around the world
