Adventure Escape™ is the flagship series that Haiku Games creates. Adventure Escape games combine the devious puzzles of “escape the room” style games with interesting characters and a thrilling story. The puzzles may seem challenging at first, but there’s a logical solution to each one!
We made Adventure Escape since we love adventure games and escape rooms (my wife and I have done over 50 real life escape rooms). In our humble opinion, we believe Adventure Escape is the best escape room series out there on the app store.
We started Adventure Escape because we wanted to elevate the graphics and level of polish of escape games on the app store. For example, many other escape games constantly have advertisements running while you play, which we think takes away the experience. We strive to make our games great looking, fun, and intuitive to play.
We also thought that many escape games lacked an interesting story. We drew inspiration from classic point and click adventure games, which feature a rich story that immerses the reader. Instead of escaping door after door for no reason, we want to transport you to be a secret agent like in Allied Spies, an archaeologist like in Hidden Ruins, or homicide detective.
The heart of an Adventure Escape game are fair puzzles. We have a design principle called “satisfying challenge.” We think puzzles should be tough but solvable. We spend a lot of time creating unique puzzles that we do not think have been seen before.
Of course, there’s still a lot of work that we can do, and we are constantly trying to improve. We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what an escape game is. In our newest game Haunted Hunt, you can shapeshift into different animals in order to find new clues. Shapeshift into a cat to gain supernatural vision and the ability to see traps!
