About Escape Academy

About this game

You've just arrived at Escape Academy, a school where promising students train to become the ultimate Escapist.

Play over a dozen masterfully hand-crafted rooms, designed by experienced experts in the field of REAL LIFE escape rooms.

Experience the entirety of Escape Academy alone in single-player OR through two-player co-operative play. Available in local or online split-screen.

Explore the campus of Escape Academy and get to know the faculty, a colorful cast of characters, each an expert in the art of Escape. And some with secrets yet to be uncovered...

Featuring Music and Sound Design by the one and only does one (Gang Beasts, SLUDGE LIFE, Disc Room, Enter the Gungeon).

Escape Academy’s Respected Curriculum:

  • Attend a Tea 'N Tea Party - Can you defuse the bomb before your tranquil cup of tea gets cold? Your grade (and physical well-being) depend on it!
  • Hack the Professor - Solve a quantifiably feverish series of challenges to prove to the Academy’s super A.I. that you’ve got the skills to become an Escapist.
  • Go for the Gold - Represent your class in everyone’s favorite sporting event, The Rival Room. Go toe-to-toe against your nemesis in a puzzle race to prove who’s top of the class.
  • Do Not Drown! - Being at the bottom of a puzzle tower that’s rapidly filling with water is NOT ideal. Scramble to the top for that sweet, sweet oxygen.
  • Spray Paint the Monument - Art class is no Easy-A at the Academy. Leave your mark on the historic Monument of Escape but uh… hurry up! The Headmaster didn’t exactly approve of the lesson plan.

And this is just a portion of the wacky (and often lethal) curriculum!

Would love to have more story, but really great for what it has!

It is definitely an icon in the genre of escape room games. With great graphics, a well-done built-in hint system, and just enough story to keep you captivated, without being overwhelming. The puzzles are great and can really wrack your brain. It doesn't just feel like a simple "obtain key to get item to unlock next part and so on..." type of escape game. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because, if you are well-versed at escape games and fairly good at them, then it is over quickly. I would love to see more free story added someday. I'm hoping I can check out the DLC's soon!

Heads up THIS GAME MAY GIVE YOU MOTION SICKNESS. If you’re prone to motion sickness (and even some who aren’t) you may have real difficulty with this game. Which is a shame, cause the puzzles are solid.

Very fun game to play with a friend, its challenging but not too hard. We did finish it pretty quickly which was sad but it was fun to try and get all the achievements afterwards!
