Together with the escape room professionals from Coin Crew Games, iam8bit Presents and Skybound Games have created their masterpiece Escape Academy and are now looking forward to the worldwide release of the game. Escape Academy tells a compelling story full of mysteries and numerous puzzles with many colorful and unique characters.

With the same atmosphere as escape rooms with friends, this game is perfect for experienced escape room players, fans of the puzzle genre and gamers who just want to unravel a complex mystery. Escape Academy is available via Xbox Game Pass and digitally on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Steam and the Epic Games Store for €19,99.

Puzzles under time pressure

Exploration under immense time pressure and tricky puzzles, but also teamwork make real escape rooms. Escape Academy is one of the first video games to capture these aspects and turn them into an authentic digital escape experience. In intense scenarios full of epic puzzles, players can prove their puzzle skills either alone or with friends in cooperative multiplayer mode. Whether it's online, dual-screen multiplayer, or local, everyone must work together to escape the rooms of Escape Academy. In the heart of their own living room, players immerse themselves in the world of the highly regarded Escape Academy, which is characterized by unrelenting rivalries and a multitude of puzzles.

"We wanted to create a game based on the well-known escape room genre - and quickly realized that we could build practically anything in the digital space," said Wyatt Bushnell, co-founder of Coin Crew Games. “Creating a digital escape room removes all the physical constraints - you don't have to worry about the safety of the players or that they might tear a painting off the wall. We could just focus on building something fun: Let's have the player climb a water tower that slowly fills with water! The crew loved this freedom in developing Escape Academy.”

"Working on Escape Academy allowed us to combine our accumulated experience building physical attractions with our video gaming skills and the result was truly unique," said Mike Mohammed Salyh, co-founder of Coin Crew Games. “We've spent a lot of time watching players solve our escape rooms, both digitally and in real life, and studying how they think. I'm really proud that Escape Academy stays true to the genre as it was a lot of fun bringing the classic concept into a huge format.”

After completing the base game, fans can continue their escape streak with the Escape Academy Season Pass. This Season Pass will include two major DLC expansions for the game after release: Escape from Anti-Escape Island and Escape from the Past. Both expansions take players on a wild adventure filled with familiar faces, new allies, and ruthless villains. Both DLCs each contain five brand new escape rooms with a total of ten lovingly designed rooms. Additionally, with the Escape Academy Deluxe Edition, which includes the base game and Season Pass, players can enjoy an enhanced Escape Academy experience thanks to over 20 masterfully designed Escape Rooms.
