    About Escape Team

    Escape Team is an innovative approach to mobile multiplayer gaming: Rather than isolating players from each other, it brings them together in the real world. Players cut, fold and draw their way through the game's paper-based puzzles. They require creative and logical thinking, collaboration and communication.

    Escape Team is a print-and-play, interactive pen-and-paper escape game: players collaboratively solve puzzles through logical and creative thinking, as well as by cutting, folding and drawing on real paper.

    Entering their solutions in the Escape Team app, players unfold a thrilling audio narrative while racing against a merciless, ticking countdown.

    What makes my game unique?

    Escape Team is an action-packed, digital-physical escape game on iOS and Android. Download the app, print your mission. After that, the phone steps aside: it acts as the 'game master' (checking the puzzles' solutions) and creates the game's atmosphere through an immersive soundtrack and audio narrative. The real action, however, happens between the players themselves: Cleverly designed, paper-based puzzles have to be solved in order to finish Escape Team's missions.

    Why could my game win an award?

    Mobile games tend to isolate us from our friends: Escape Team changes that. It is a game about collaborative creativity.
