What is an online escape game?
You experience a browser-based point and click game with audio and video sequences and an exciting story with many puzzles and secrets to unravel. Our Online Escape Games are virtual Escape Rooms that you can play independently at any time. All you need is good internet and a PC. Various clues and puzzles will guide you through an extraordinary movie-length experience. The game is playable until you finish it. You organize the communication via an external program like WhatsApp, Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet.
How do I book an online escape game?
Click on the online game in the appropriate language and put the game in the shopping cart, click on ``checkout`` and pay conveniently online. Afterwards you will receive two emails with an access code for you and your team. The game code is valid for 6 months. With some email providers the delivery can take up to one hour. With the link you can start the game directly.
DO I HAVE TO PLAY IMMEDIATELY AFTER BOOKING?
The link is valid for 6 months, so you can start and play at any time during this period. This expires only when you have played through the game once completely - so you can take breaks or even divide the game into different days.
ARE THERE ANY TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS TO PLAY AN ONLINE ESCAPE GAME?
Everyone needs internet access to participate in the game and communication. At least one of the PCs you use needs a stable and good internet connection. If not all of you can guarantee this, you have the possibility to play the game anyway via screensharing with audio transmission. The sound is absolutely necessary, because our game contains sound and video sequences - but don't worry, you don't have to download anything for that.
HOW TO PLAY IN MULTIPLAYER WITH SEVERAL PEOPLE?
Playing in multiplayer mode means that you can all click and enter solutions in the game and the score will adjust accordingly. You are digitally linked together through our browser-based game. Once you receive the link, you share it with your team members. A web page opens, you click Start Game and you are now all in the same Online Escape Game. We recommend that only one click for everyone at a time. If all players click at the same time, there will be chaos in the game. You organize your communication via an external program like WhatsApp, Zoom, Teams or Google Meet.
CAN THE GAME BE PLAYED WITH MORE THAN 6 PEOPLE?
Yes. Theoretically, the multiplayer also allows more than 6 accesses, but this option is not recommended! All players in the multiplayer mode can click live. This means that if the number of players exceeds a certain limit, technical problems, delays and especially chaos in the game may occur. If you want to play with a larger group, we recommend to play in several smaller groups in parallel, or only one person plays and shares his screen and sound with all other players via a video call that ``remote control`` the one player.
IS THERE A TUTORIAL BEFORE THE GAME?
Yes, the functions and the correct preparation are explained in a short tutorial video before the game starts. Before you start the game, you should have a quick look at the technical basics.
IS THE GAME MODERATED AND HOW CAN WE GET CLUES?
The game format has a built-in hint system for each scene and puzzle. So if you need help, you use the hint menu. This is explained again briefly in the tutorial.
DOES THE GAME HAVE A TIME LIMIT?
No. The 90-120 minutes given are only an approximate time orientation based on our experience without pausing the game. Of course, this time period also varies from group to group.
DOES THE GAME HAVE INTEGRATED COMMUNICATION?
No, communication between players is external via platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, Discord, etc., or via cell phone via Whatsapp or Facetime, for example.
CAN AN ONLINE ESCAPE GAME BE PLAYED ON A TABLET OR CELL PHONE?
No. The format is optimized for PC/laptop and does not work on mobile devices.
Yes, your progress is saved via your access link and you can pause the game at any time and continue playing at another time.
OUR GAME BRIEFLY GOES BLACK AFTER SOLVING PUZZLES, WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
There are a few seconds of intentional delay in each of the scene transitions. On the one hand, the browser preloads scene assets because the game is not stored on the device, on the other hand, this is a delay intended by us. This is mainly to allow for qualitatively different internet connections of the players in the loading time.
