Escape Simulator takes the classic escape room formula and turns it into a solid solo or co-op first-person video game. Created by the developers of Pine Studios, the same team behind the mysterious Academy: The First Riddle game, Escape Simulator gives players a wide range of clever puzzles to solve and small collectible items to search for.
Escape Simulator offers three themed adventures: The Labyrinth of Egypt, Adrift in Space and Edgewood Manor. Each of these adventures consists of a total of five rooms that slowly become more difficult as players progress. Players are allowed to choose any room in each theme at any time, which facilitates progress and less frustration if the puzzle becomes too difficult.
Once the room is selected, Escape Simulator gives players 15 minutes to clear the exit and open the locked door. Players are still allowed to continue researching even after the timer expires, so doing things on time becomes more of an achievement and less of a necessity. There are also small hidden chips scattered around the rooms that can be collected, and although they are of no use, it is a nice little addition to draw more games of 4-5 hours as long as it takes to complete the game.
As with most real-life escape rooms, the main goal of any room is to get out of it. Using a multitude of puzzles, Escape Simulator does a good job of keeping things fresh with each topic. From multi-level logic puzzles to simple “key goes to the lock” scenarios, nothing ever seems unfair. There are very rare moments of guessing, but the answer to any puzzle is always around, and there are many “a-ha!” Moments during the game.
If some of the puzzles end up being too difficult, Escape Simulator has a two-player online collaboration mode. Select the desired room and the game will generate a code for the lobby server that the other player will join. Some rooms tend to be a little small for multiple players, but moving around each one doesn’t cause too much of a headache. Unfortunately, Escape Simulator does not provide voice chat, so third-party software, such as Discord, will be required to communicate.
In addition to the 15 levels included in Escape Simulator is also a custom room editor, which allows players to create their own puzzles and upload them to the Steam Workshop. The system is quite deep and uses logical chains in a simple and understandable way. Setting up and placing items can be cumbersome, but with a little practice and patience, the systems are easy enough to understand. Downloading custom maps is easy with Steam Workshop and will further extend the game itself.
All in all, Escape Simulator is a great way to experience an escape room without leaving home. Smooth gameplay and realistically solvable puzzles make for a pleasant experience. The rooms created by the players will undoubtedly just add value and make Escape Simulator an easy purchase for puzzle fans.
