What is a real life escape game?

‘Real life’, or ‘Live’, escape games have become increasingly popular around the world. These games are based on online escape games like the crimson room. The idea is to escape a room by finding hidden objects and clues, and solving puzzles.

Real life escape games get you thinking out of the box as there is no googling the answer! This game is built for team work, cooperation and for people who are up for a fun challenge.


How does the game at Ctrl.Shift.Esc work?

Players will be trapped in a room that will appear ordinary at first glance. But as you look closely, it will unveil its mysteries. You will have 60 minutes inside this room to uncover hidden objects, hunt for clues, crack codes, solve puzzles and find the key to escape the room. A CSE Game-Master will assign you with a mission before the game starts – fulfilling this mission will help you escape the room. The Game-Master will also monitor you during the length of the game and provide hints just in case you’re stuck and need help – hopefully you won’t need any!


Who can play?

The game is suited for all ages however, it is best suited for ages 13 and up. Children below 10 can only play with adult supervision. You don’t need any special skills or knowledge. Note: Please make note of the age limits mentioned where applicable.


How many people can play one game?

2 to 10 people can play one game. We recommend at least four – it’s more fun in a larger group.


Am I actually locked in a room?

YES… sounds scary? Don’t worry… we can open the room if you need to be let out, but it will be more fun if you find your way out.


How long does it take?

The game is for 60 minutes, but do come 15 minutes earlier for some important instructions or you’ll have next to no chance of escaping. Please be prepared to stay there for a total of 90 minutes from start to finish.


Why can’t I just play this type of game online?

Because it’s not nearly as much fun.


What about video games?

Definitely not as much fun.


Fine, I’ll come.

That’s not a question. But, you made the right decision!


Do I need to bring anything with me?

Nope… just your curiosity and creativity. But make sure you come 15 minutes before your start time!
