Immerse your employees in your company culture by tailoring your puzzles and surroundings to your business in our custom virtual adventures.
What is a Virtual Escape Room?
In a conventional escape room, you and your teammates are locked in a room and given one hour to escape by solving puzzles and riddles that encourage you to use the space granted and work interactively with the room and each other.
The rooms are usually themed around a particular concept with puzzles to match. You could be asked to put something in the correct order or hunt for a specific item or code to unlock pieces of furniture or reveal new areas.
These immersive experiences usually are for groups under 12 and can be fun to do with friends, colleagues or even strangers. Virtual escape rooms simply take this concept and put it online.
Rather than being locked in a room you’re in front of a computer screen, talking to your teammates via an app like Zoom. You can point and click your way around the room in 360 degrees, taking your time to solve the puzzles and escape!

How Does It Work?
Making Teams custom builds don’t have to be like the traditional escape room. We offer the ability to tailor your room to your business. Choose the location and theme that suits you. Are you a cybernetics company? Maybe your build could involve catching a hacker bent on destroying the worlds’ internet! Or maybe you’re a pharmaceutical company who wants to test your employee’s procedural knowledge. The possibilities are endless – and fun!
Choose how hard you want to make your room. A challenge is fun, but success is more fun! Choose a difficulty that works for you. Think about the puzzles and how many people per team and remember, your virtual assistant will always be there to help if you get too stuck.
Most escape rooms or other team building activities last an hour. With a custom build you can choose how long to play for, and can even build an entire team day around it if you choose.
Think about what features and assets you want included in your game. Maybe your puzzles are quite complex and require you to keep hold of items you found earlier; in which case you can request an inventory. Or maybe you want to include real life locations from your business? Give us the pictures and we can create a 360-degree effect so you can fully immerse yourself in trying to escape the room and feel like you’re really there.
The best part of custom-built escape rooms is that they’re tailored to you. If you supply us with your logo, branding colours and other marketing pieces before we build, your custom escape room will be completely branded to your business
Is there a specific type of puzzle you want to include? Maybe you’re a coding company who wants a puzzle deciphering a sequence, or a shipping country that wants a navigational puzzle. We love a challenge! Give us a theme and we’ll build puzzles specifically tailored to you.
Leave it with us and you’ll have your online escape room ready for your next virtual team building day.
Our Happy Customers
Existing Escape Rooms
We’ve made custom builds for hundreds of companies just like yours….
Case Study: Shipping Company
In 20xx a shipping company approached us to create a virtual pirate themed escape room set in one of their shipping containers. Participants had to escape a cabin, then make their way through the ship to send a distress call and reach safety using a combination of company knowledge and creativity to complete the challenges.
We tailored the puzzles to their requirements, crafting a digital learning experience that incorporated company training, testing employee skills on morse code, navigation and mechanical know-how.
Case Study: Republic Polytechnic University, Singapore
When Republic Polytechnic contacted us looking to build a custom escape room, they already had their premise in mind – stop the hacker.
They asked us to build an escape room around the concept that a hacker had taken over the city and was slowly shutting everything down, causing havoc by spreading fake news as they did.
Our challenge was to take this idea and build puzzles around it that related to the University’s areas of study. Using 360-degree images, and real-life maps of Singapore’s subway station, we asked the players to determine fact from fiction and use logic to break through the hacker’s defences and save the city.
Our challenge was to make this an immersive experience that centred around the themes of hacking, coding and technology to broaden critical thinking skills and teamwork.
Existing AR Adventures
Case Study: A South African Interior Design & Architectural Company (SAOTA)
For this Amazing Race, we created a fully immersive 360-degree adventure. We used real world office locations and buildings designed by the company, sending their employees all over the world from their computer screens.
Using a combination of local cultural challenges and company specific challenges related to interior design and architecture, we incorporated their 360 virtual reality photographs, CEO speeches and projects into an Amazing Race virtual adventure.
Our challenge was to foster cohesiveness between employees and allow them to see their company’s achievements worldwide in a truly unique team-building experience.
Case Study: Home Team Science and Technology Agency (HTX), Singapore
HTX are a subsidiary of Singapore’s government agency that contacted us to create an exciting AR adventure across Singapore.
The goal? To stop the terrorist organization threatening the country!
By winning puzzles, picking up important files and speaking with informants, they were expected to figure out who the terrorist was, and stop them before it was too late.
For this adventure, we used real Singapore locations like Changhi aiport, and Chinatown as well as birds’ eye views of all the major Singaporean landmarks. Our challenge was to challenge HTX employees to use their critical thinking and logic skills to determine who, out of the people they meet at each location, is telling the truth.
