Secret Escape Game

Entire set of clues:




- Don’t mind the dots for now. 'Cell Blocks that are always lit': Check the squares that you didn’t mark.

- The unmarked squares form familiar shapes. Each one of them has a letter. In the nonogram, go in a specific direction to get the right order.



- You might believe at first that the three sentences in the image are relevant for this part (“What...Where…Will…?”), but something else should draw your attention.

Did you see the two dots in 1a?

Separate the nonogram’s squares in a specific manner.

- You’ll find the answer in darkened places. You can count on it.

Don’t forget to read the game’s basic instructions on the website.




- There are 5 sets of 3 words each. Every set is missing the same letters (in the same order).

- First set starts with: C. The second: T. The third: L. The fourth: C. The fifth: L. 

All these sets combined create a phrase.




- Search outside for the underground room. 

- It turns out you can assemble a jigsaw puzzle from the squares (though some pieces are missing). A long message will appear once you’re done. Pay attention to the three dots on the bottom. They link to another message.



- 1=A, 26=Z.

- For example: 18135 ---> 18-1-3-5


- In this puzzle, you need to turn all 15 question marks into digits.

Assisted by the cover photo, find the relevant prison cell and look for the 15 faces.

- When you open 2b, you’ll see a little note on a brown table. This helps you adjust the digits (or faces) in the right order.

The last page of the booklet shows you another prison cell. Find that cell and look for something in that map. Do you have it? Well, go there.



- Have a dictionary at your side and check out every possible combination that might give you a legitimate 4-lettered English word. The existence of some words might surprise you.

- Each grid has 5 central parts. Organize them in the order in which the pentagram’s corners appear.



- A year is written on the bottom of each column.

(The image seems blurry, so look for a clever way to find a clearer image on the web)

Arrange the columns in descending order, or to be fully accurate: reorganize the years.

- After merging the properly arranged years into one set, divide the set into groups of 3 digits each, moving from left to right.



- Gaps aren’t as important as you think. You can understand the true words behind a phrase, even if the spacing between them is wrong. Try to eliminate some spacing. Maybe new words will appear.

- Try to look for a hidden mathematical instruction inside the text.



- At the starting point, you can see that each gate has a number. Go through the main gates and look for each image.

- The three white dots also appear in another riddle.



- One row contains a full 6-lettered word. Start from finding out what row it might be. You can search the web for ‘Word Unscramble’ sites.

- In the game’s instructions, there is a link to the American Cryptogram Association website. After finding out what the phrase is, look for it on the website.



- Something is drawn on the wall.

- An older version of the character you know.

Last clue for the end:

The solutions: 1B gives you the coordinates of the prison. 2B guides you to stare at something. 3B wants you to focus on a certain area and to actually go there. 4B-5B lead you to another place. 6B will help you once you're there. Hopefully...

Really last clue for the end: (double-click on the space between the apostrophes to see the hidden text)

'Think of a place you'd rather be in. There is no other like it...'
