The "Emergency Procedure" trilogy

We all love our stories sliced into three digestable parts, don't we? So we decided to make a trilogy too, in order to have more time and space for story and puzzles. In this series of puzzle games we will be following a mysterious science journalist. She is taking on a criminal consortium, trying to unveil and stop their dangerous 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!

Available episodes

    The first part,
    "Emergency Procedure",
    revolves around uncovering what has happened to Sascha's Boss, Anne. Where has she gone, and what is that mysterious emergency procedure?

    This episode, just like the others, contains a great variety of puzzles and tasks. Some classical escape room puzzles, some we would rather call digital puzzles, and others... well, you'll see!

    Again, this game contains a great variety of puzzles and tasks for you and your team. We put great effort in making the puzzles thematic and tie them into the story, so you can immerse yourself into the story - if you like.

About the english translation

Yes, you can play this online escape room game in english! Our games are originally produced and published in german. A big thank you goes out to all those who helped in the process of translating!

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

How do escape online games work?

an image like it could appear within the game

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

Our games fall into the categorie of point and click style games. That means you won't be commanding our poor game masters with headcams. Rather you will move the mouse, pointing and clicking from time to time.

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. These games have been optimized for the medium, that means, the screen.

Our first game's title image

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.

Of course we have a detailed game description for you, if you need any help to get started. And to round things up and make our online game even more user-friendly, there's a nice little hint system right inside the game.

Play together

Ideal team size is around two or three players. You can play with less or more - it's just a matter of communication!

No time limit

Play as long as you want, and whenever you want.
