|What is Escape Key?|
|Other than the top left key on your computer keyboard, it is a real-life room escape game.|
|So what is a real-life room escape game?|
|Room escape games originated as a type of point-and-click adventure game where players must escape imprisonment and use clues from their surroundings to escape. Real-life room escape games are based on this concept, but players are locked in a real room with physical clues they must explore to escape the room within a set timeframe.|
|Why Escape Key?|
|Escape Key's puzzles have a focus on technology, incorporating new and unique locking mechanisms not available in the public market. The puzzles have been carefully designed and selected by the creator and players of the Tim Tang Test, a popular 250-level online puzzle game launched in 2007, with over 4 million visitors to date.|
|Do I need to book all the available tickets?|
|No, you can book as few as one. However, you are not guaranteed a private game, and given that the room is designed for twelve people, bringing more friends will give you a higher chance to escape. We do offer the option of a private game at a one-person surcharge, waived for groups of ten or more.|
