Our story

Tom Davies


We are two friends with a huge passion for Escape Rooms and Murder Mysteries. After the global pandemic started in March of 2020, we wanted to find an online alternative to traditional escape rooms, but couldn't find anything that offered the same teamwork-based experience. So we set out to do it ourselves.

Teamwork was the #1 consideration throughout our ideation process. We wanted to make sure that the players were required to communicate in order to solve puzzles. This is where our role-based system came in. Each player would have access to different information, creating really cool 'aha!' moments for players as they discuss what they are seeing on their screens. From there, we designed unique puzzles and a captivating plot, which eventually became our first virtual escape game: Cyber Crime Unit.
