Centralized Room Editor

“Room Editor” allows game-masters and owners to easily organize escape room parameters in a centralized manner. Incorporate in one file the room details (such as available time, number of clues, number of puzzles, and brief description) together with the required sound files. Use one PC to design all the rooms and transmit the files to your game masters.

Moreover, the room editor supports the organization of the clues in different languages.

Additionally, the one-click backup utility makes it simple to protect your important work. Save everything in one file: Room Parameters, Theme, Sounds, Scheduled Events, Scoreboard, Automation Settings, and More!!!


Fully Customizable

The in-room screen is fully customizable through the settings menu. Change colors, font family, background images and videos, icons, as well the number and the type of the displayed blocks. Always keep in mind that the customization procedure requires minimal training and support. Use your imagination and make your in-room screen part of the atmosphere.

Game Master has also the ability to create a fully customizable leader-board for each room, accessible from any device connected to the same network. Use this feature to display game statistics in your lobby.

Enhance the atmosphere of your room by visualizing the remaining available time using alternative ways such as percentage representations, analog clocks, and animation effects!
