Self-driving escape games

We help escape game owners ensure a consistent, high-quality service delivery by eliminating the need for game masters. We also provide an operational support system that reduces time spent on repetitive tasks and raises quality of re-setting challenges, taking of team photos and upselling.

This is done through an extensive network of digital sensors and actuators mounted inside the challenges and staff-friendly web-apps for smart phones. Our game control software supports complex game flows, and ensures that hints and other actions are triggered in the right situation and at the correct time, based on player performance.

Our technology can be retrofitted into existing challenges, or be delivered together with tested challenge concepts developed by us.

Thanks to self-resetting problem modules and digital check lists connected to mounted sensors and actuators the room for human error is greatly reduced. This reduces the training requirements for new employees, offering business owners more flexibility when it comes to staffing.

We provide value for sites with four or more challenges and we look for long-term serious business owners that prioritise high-standard service delivery but currently face high staff costs.

A prime industry player with five challenges often employs up to six members of staff at full operation. One game master for each game, plus one for manning the waiting area. Relying on part-time employees can easily grow the number of staff on payroll to 20 or more people. Recruiting and managing such a large workforce is a tough management challenge and incurs substantial costs. By automating game surveillance, we can reduce the number of on-site staff to two persons, even at full operation without sacrificing player experience.
