iam8bit, Skybound Games, and developer Coin Crew Games has today launched Escape Academy, an escape room puzzler in which you and a colourful cast of characters are tasked with unravelling a series of mysteries and conundrums, in a bid to make it out of the game's various “mind-bending" chambers.
Placing an onus on teamwork, exploration, and scenarios that aim to replicate a similar intensity to an IRL escape room, Escape Academy can be experienced in single-player or with friends via co-op multiplayer, locally or online, via a dual-screen multiplayer mode. Expect arguments to ensue, probably.
Escape Academy is out now for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, available via Xbox Game Pass, as well as PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC, priced $19.99/£14.99. An Escape Academy Season Pass is also available for $14.99/£12.49, granting access to the ‘Escape from Anti-Escape Island’ (due fall 2022) and ‘Escape from the Past’ (coming in spring 2023) DLCs, for a total of ten additional handcrafted escape rooms, as they release.
