Escape Simulator puzzle simulator hits Alpha with support in Linux gaming, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to the progressive efforts of Pine Studio. Slated for a release on Steam this year.
Escape Simulator is a next-gen escape room game. Also a whole new take on the genre. Where simulation takes the spotlight as players pick up and examine everything. You can even move furniture, smash pots and melt locks. The game is playable in both solo or co-op multiplayer online mode. While taking inspiration from real-life escape rooms. Which certainly plays well on Linux, even for an Alpha.
Escape Simulator – Alpha Gameplay
- 15 Rooms
Talented designers from real-world escape room venues. “ExitGames” and “Enigmariumu®” designed rooms and puzzles. Escape Simulator will first ship with 15 rooms set in 3 distinct settings. Such as “Adrift in Space”, “Labyrinth of Egypt” and “Edgewood Mansion”.
- Simulation-Based Gameplay
What also makes Escape Simulator unique is the attention to the simulation. So unlike typical adventure games, players can do things the designer didn’t intend. Items have weight and depending on how heavy they are, they can be picked up. Such as smaller items or dragged around like furniture. As a result, each smaller item can be held, examined and even thrown.
- Co-op Multiplayer
The game features an easy to get into co-op online multiplayer mode. Puzzles design each have a way that players can choose to solve their own problems. Or actively work together on a puzzle.
- Secret Tokens
For those seeking an extra challenge. Each room has eight devilishly hidden collectible tokens. Tokens expand on the gameplay in the room offering rewards for solving harder versions of puzzles. As well as using keen observational skills.
Escape Simulator is designed around future growth. So that new rooms will be released every week. The community will also vote on the theme of the next room pack.
