signal Are you struggling with sales? It is hard to sell your games when people are afraid of leaving their homes - being locked up in a room with 6 other people and touching everything around them, it just feels wrong in the time of social distancing. The online escape game is not only a pledge of survival for your business, but it is the new generation of escape rooms. While you are hosting traditional escape games, you can monetize your empty slots by hosting online games. Added bonus of the online games is that it has no geographical borders, your game can be played from all over the world that brings a new scale to your sales.

Remote Escape Room

If the players won't come to the escape rooms, then the rooms must go to the players. Is this possible? Yes! And it's more simple than you'd think!
Let's see
See the table below why Remote Escape Room’s Software is already far better than any other solution on the market! Not to mention that we are continuously developing this solution while other platforms will stay the same as they are non personalizable for escape rooms!!!

Read now the interview with one of the most successful users of Remote Escape Room Software:

Interview with Gottfried Amtmann, Owner and CEO of ETR Betriebsmanagement & Personalservices GmbH

Hello Gottfried, how did you get across this solution?
„Franchise owner offered it to me.”
I am a Franchisee of Exit The Room, running 6 different escape room locations in Austria. I was contacted by the Owner of the company, Gabor Retfalvi, he told me that they have developed a brand new solution for live online escape games. With this solution I would be able to reopen my venues, and asked if I am interested. I instantly fell in love with the idea, and said yes!

How do you set up such a game?
„Purchase hardware for video streaming, and change a few puzzles”
It does need some development if you want to make a good escape room experience for your customers. First of all you need to have the ideal harware solution at your location so that you are able to video stream with good quality. Secondly there are some puzzles which can not be solved with one person, or can not be seen nicely through a camera. We usually needed to change 2-3 puzzles per escape room game, and the guys in Budapest developed a feature into the software so that we can share pictures of the room, and puzzles, controlled by the game master throughout the game, this way solved majority of the occuring problems.

Were there any other problems?
„Tech problems on players side, but solved”
We had some problems at the begginig, as all developments do, but we were able to solve majority of them, and we had not one unsatisfied customer asking for refund. There were 2-3 teams who weren’t able to play, and we rebooked them. As it turned out, it is usually the players mistake and lack of hardware from their side, but by now the software has a pretesting solution, which is required for all participants before the game. We had no problems with those teams who used this solution.

And how is the business side?
„We are fully booked with full price tickets”
Unexpectedly good! Gabor told me, that we will be able to sell normal full price tickets based on what he experienced in Hungary. I didn’t bellieve at first, but as I had no other possibilities becausue of the goverment regulation that forced us to close all of our venues and remain withoit revenue, we gave it a try, and it was a hit! On the first week we had 90%+ occupancy rate with pull price tickets! I instantly decided to open other rooms in my system. On the weekend of the first week of opening, I already opened my second online escape game, and 2 others on the week after. It has been 2 weeks since we opened and all the games that we make avaiable are booked full price. We still run with 90%+ booking rate. I tell you a secret: We haven’t spent 1 EURO on marketing yet, we receive this traffic organically. It seems, that people really can’t do anything from home, and they really love if they run across a new experience possibility. And not to forget my favorite part is that now I sell games to all German speaking territories. Even to those where we or other branches Exit The Room, has never opened any escape room game. From Graz instead of the 300k population, my potential market now is 88million users, all Austria and Germany!!!

How much does it cost?
„Only 3 EUR per game”
The Remote Escape Room software, as far as I know, is free for everybody since Everyescaperoom.com purchased the rights of licensing this software. They are probably using it to generate B2B database and partners for themselves with whom they can cooperate with the aggregator site in different fields after the crisis. The only cost occuring is the cost of the live video streaming that is used by the software. It is on avarage around 3 EUR/game. In the last 2 weeks I have generated almost 10k EUR income and I can see that I have 428 EUR cost regarding the software use. And testing was also involved in this cost!

Where to go now, what are your plans?
„Expand, expand, expand…”
First of all I would like to open as many games possible. I plan to have 12 games on my 6 locations operational in the next 2 weeks. For now I only open 2 escape games / venue, because we haven’t tested if internet can take more than 2 games running paralell, 2 games are okay technically. I am also planning to have native english speaking game masters from University, and with them, I would be able to go to all english speaking markets, UK, USA, Canada, Australia… That is half a billion potential customers, so that is something I am really interested about, but only focus on when I reached my potentials here on the german speking markets. I am also looking at the possibility for reopening the normal escpape room games too, and we are working on how to slove running 2 different products, online escape rooms and normal escape rooms, from one place, and how we can solve that on our home page, because I expect these online escape rooms to stay with us on longer tem.

Worst thing?
„No good enough wireless solution”
It is definetly that the game master can’t use a mobilephone for the game, and has to have a cable connection with a laptop. As we tested basically everything possible, this was the best quality and most stable solution for far, so in 2020 the world is still working through cables…

Best thing?
„The advantage of unique software for escape rooms”
The creativity of the idea, and that the guys at the back office of Exit The Room have developed a special software for this. Otherwise we would have to use ZOOM or Skype like other companies, which are very far from a good escape room game experience, and they have very limited possibilities, which we all were able to develope a solution for. Players enjoy the game and are keen on returning online and in real life too.

How long do you think this will stay with us, and what will be after the Covid crisis?
„Definetly long term, I expect this to become a new product on the market”
In my opinion this Covid crisis will stay with us for a quite long time, I expect it to be around a year or so. Sadly escape rooms will be the hardest hit by regulations, because these places are where different teams go into a game place after each other and touch everything… Just not something that sounds promising now days, even if we are allowed to open, who knows when we have to close again, or customers would come at all. Afterwards I think popularity will have a fallback, but I am also pretty sure by seeing the games played so far, that this solution will be a new product on the escape room market, and there are plenty of opportunities for development too, but I would like to keep those in secret for now. I also plan to have my not so well going venue, hosting the online games, while my nicely running venues will be reopened when possible, and only unsold slots will be sold as online games, to places where I am not even present phisically. I heard that Gabor himself has a venue that they are having problem with regulations of the given city, so they plan to transform that place to hosting only online escape rooms.

What would you reccommend for other escape room owners?
„Start ASAP and become the biggest!”
To do it asap, but be sure to have enough testing, otherwise they can easily loose their belief after a few bad games. We had some problems at the beggining, but with enough work and energy invested anybody can be amongs the first and the best in this newly developing part of the esape room industry. There will be companies, who will be first and become big and can grow faster than others, while others who miss the fast possibility of start, will be late comers and that will need much more work and investment. On long term I expect this to be also an extra product for escape room operator companies, but with way more possibilities than mobile escape rooms, or outside escape games…

Remote escape rooms provide the players an opportunity to experience a real-world escape room experience without leaving their home. The Remote Escape Room gives gamers the real experience of escape games and opens a whole new, unprecedented perspective for escape room operators. Players connect online and find themselves in a real escape room, where the game master will be their eyes and ears and follow the instructions they receive from the team members. They discover the escape room through the game master's webcam, and following the instructions, it is their job to find the hidden clues, objects and figure out the relationships between them. The tasks have to be solved just as they are in the escape room, except that the game has no physical limitations. It does not matter whether they are far from the escape room or from the other team members.

How does it work?

Remote Escape Room is the next generation of escape games. Players connect with each other and with the game master online, and discover a real-world escape room through the webcam. Meanwhile, they are communicating with each other as if they were physically in the escape room and the game master keeps following the instructions received from the team members. The technology is now available, just waiting for you to start using it among the first ones. All you need is a webcam and an internet connection in the escape room. The connection between the players and the game master is provided by the Remote Escape Room software, which is now available free of charge to all escape room operators.

What do you gain with Remote Escape Room?

The Remote Escape Room provides an online connection between the members the playing team and the escape room. Practically it works like a video conference call where one of the participants, the game master, is the only one in the escape room and players can join her/him from their home anywhere in the world.

This solution ensures that the escape rooms continue to operate during the epidemic and allows players to fully enjoy the escape games while their safety is not at risk.

  • Receive a new source of revenue
  • Connect players who are far away
