By - | Views: 17,476

Escape Simulator from Pine Studio (SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell, Faraway: Director's Cut) is a next-generation escape room puzzler with both solo and co-op modes. Planned to release sometime in 2021, Pine Studio confirmed to GamingOnLinux that it will support Linux and they are already testing the early Alpha builds on Linux too.

"ESCAPE SIMULATOR is a platform for immersive escape rooms. You can pick up and examine every object, drag furniture, smash vases and glass, burn things, melt locks - all of this in the interest of solving challenging (and fun!) puzzles. You can play solo or join up with a friend. New room is coming out every week and community gets to decide the next theme!"

Can we please have this in VR? I think it would be a perfect match.

The name makes it sound like it supports community-made rooms, but that doesn't seem to be the case. A pity, I would love to see a whole community of escape rooms!

Looks great, would love if they include puzzles that require co-op like We Were Here

This looks fine and all, but what exactly does "next gen" mean in this case?
