Escape First is an escape room video game featuring three rooms with varying themes and difficulty. You are given a generous amount of time to complete each room, complete with clues and hints to discover, as you solve puzzles and tasks to hopefully find your way to freedom.
The game has solo and co-op play (online partners are needed for two achievements). The game offers intriguing and detailed puzzles that will challenge the sharpest of minds, but if you are following the guide, nothing needs to be figured out. Each of the story-related escape room solutions below details the bare minimum of what needs to be done to complete it without finding any clues for yourself. You are free to explore as much as you want, but make sure you don’t run out of time or use a hint. Pausing the game stops the clock so you can use that to your advantage if you get stuck.
Thanks to Cheetah’s Guides for the 100% video walkthrough.
In Escape First, there are three rooms to solve, with solutions to all three in the guide below. Feel free to try and solve them without using the guide. If you decide to do this, note that there is a 45 minute time limit for each room.
Two of the three escape rooms have one room-specific achievement for each, but if you are following the solutions below, they will unlock naturally while you are playing through the rooms.
Aside from escaping each room, there are achievements for completing a room solo and one for doing it in multiplayer but alone. For solo, select ‘Solo’ from the board, choose a room and complete it to unlock Solo Ride (100G). To play multiplayer alone, select ‘Multiplayer’ from the board but keep the party ‘private’. Choose a room and complete it for Server Overloader (100G). If one of these is your first time completing a room and you did not use any hints (you shouldn’t have if following the solutions below), you will also unlock Didn’t get the hint (100G).
Note: This game has an unconventional input system. To interact with or pick up an item, you press (instead of or ). Also, to back out of a screen (such as a close up of a keypad) or to drop an item, you press (instead of ). It’s a bit awkward and curious as to why the developers chose to use these buttons instead of the more traditional ones.
There are two achievements that require other players. For each of them, the room ‘The Red Button’ is by far the quickest room to solve, but feel free to choose any room you wish.
For Duo Partner (100G), you can only have two players in the party, so invite one friend or boosting partner or have the host invite you. For Brought some Friends (100G), at least three players are required, so invite two or more friends or boosting partners or have the host invite you.
Refer to each achievement for more information. If you need help finding boosting partners, you can post in the Official XBA Boosting Session Information & Discussion thread.
Congratulations! Escape First is a fun game if playing without a guide. You will need some thought and puzzle-solving skills if you choose not use this guide, but all-in-all it isn’t really too difficult. If you really want to challenge yourself and test your mind, try playing “blind” without solutions to see how far you get. Of course, if you do choose to use this guide, it will be a relatively quick 1000.
