Process & guarantees

process

Before we start our cooperation:

  • You will secure the venue for your business, if you launch a start-up, or
  • You identify the room where you want your new game to be set up.
  • You will need a scaled floor plan, and some photos of the venue/room.
  • Contact us by e-mail to discuss details before you decide on a game.

We will discuss with you all the necessary details, either on Skype or FaceTime, of course free of any charges.

Once we agreed and signed the contract, you will let us have the floor plan and photos. We then progress according to the mechanics and content of the package you purchased from us.

  • we sell a game only once to a defined geography.
  • we keep agreed deadlines and honor our commitments in full.
  • we deliver exactly what we agreed we would.
  • you get full transparency of costs and charges, no hidden small prints.
  • we provide quality products and quality services.

Frequently asked questions

  1. What exactly am I buying?
  2. Can I amend my choice of package once we agreed on a deal?
  3. Do packages contain all costs and charges?
  4. Are there any deals if I buy 2 or more games from you?
  5. What is the price if I want to operate the same game in two or more rooms at the same location?
  6. Can I sell the game once I finished operating it?
  7. What happens when we move location?
  8. Are there any discounts for returning customers?
  9. Do you offer cooperation or services other than those on your website?
  10. What to do if a game I bought from you fails to attract customers, or does not generate sales up to my expectations?
  11. What advice can you give about finding the right venue for my business?
1. What exactly am I buying?

You buy the right to run a game in one defined location. This means that you are not allowed to resell, or run it in a different location. So if you have two venues in two different cities, then you need to buy the right to run the game at multiple locations. Second location fees are discounted, exact details are to be discussed.
2. Can I amend my choice of package once we agreed on a deal?

You can always upgrade, however then we might need to amend timings as well. There is no option to downgrade.
3. Do packages contain all costs and charges?

Basic and Medium packages contain all costs and charges. Should you go for the Premium package, certain charges come on top of agreed ones, i.e. travel and accommodation of our crew, etc. The type of costs however are all indicated in the package descriptions.
4. Are there any deals if I buy 2 or more games from you?

We may offer a promotional price in case of a multiple purchase, depending on the content of the deal. As a principle, buying two or more Basic packages would not qualify for a discount. When buying two or more games where on-site works are included, there is definitely a cost advantage, as you would incur certain costs only once.
5. What is the price if I want to operate the same game in two or more rooms at the same location?

For one defined location you only pay for the game once, i.e. one package. Then you may install the same game in as many rooms as you want, provided these are all in the same geography, or even venue.
6. Can I sell the game once I finished operating it?

No, you may not sell it to any third parties, unless you sell your whole business which includes the game. In that case the new owner of your business will be bound by the same terms and conditions of our original agreement. Right to sell our games stays with us.
7. What happens when we move location?

We guarantee geographic exclusivity of our games to protect our partners’ interest. So if you relocate your business within the originally contracted geography, you may do it without any restrictions. Should you wish to move to a different geography, you need to advise us to discuss options. If at your new geography our game is already run, you will not be permitted to relocate the game there. If there is no such game sold to your new geography, we will amend our agreement to incorporate the change, against an amendment fee (33% of original transaction price in case of Basic and Medium Packages, and 25% in case of Premium Package).
8. Are there any discounts for returning customers?

There may well be, however it is subject to discussion, based on purchase history.
9. Do you offer cooperation or services other than those on your website?

Get in contact with us and let us know what you need. We are ready to consider specific cooperation and delivery against your needs.
10. What to do if a game I bought from you fails to attract customers, or does not generate sales up to my expectations?

After purchase there is no refund or replacement available. A few useful hints to make your investment worthwhile: It is important to understand your target customers before you purchase or design a game for them. There is always a risk in trying to sell excellent products to customers who do not need them, or want something different. A game can be very highly successful in one geography, and only moderately successful somewhere else. However, with games having a good flow, smart and entertaining puzzles and challenges and a universally interesting storyline, the risk is minimal. Our games satisfy all these criteria, and you may also buy testing and adaptation to your specific conditions, including training of your moderators. Also, often success is not primarily dependent on the product (i.e. the game) but on its marketing, which is entirely your scope of influence and authority.
11. What advice can you give about finding the right venue for my business?

On request we can send you a list of hints and tips for selecting the location and property for venue. However, this list is only the summary of our experience, not the absolute truth.

Reviews

tripadvisor   We received a lovely welcome. The room (Identity) is well set out and there is a lot of clues and puzzles to solve. Brilliant to be up against the clock in order to try and solve the case. It's a great way of working together as a team and chuffed that we managed to solve it with minutes to spare. There is a fantastic twist at the end! Fun time to be had by all and I would thoroughly recommend doing it.
tripadvisor   Our group have tried many different escape rooms and I can say this was one of the best ones. We completed the Mystery Room. The mix of technology and old school code breaking was a welcome change from other rooms we have done. The member of staff that dealt with us was also excellent and very welcoming. Would 100% use again.
tripadvisor   Three of us - my husband, teenage son and myself - spent an hour in the Spy Room, solved the mystery and made it out with seconds to spare!! Did we need a hint? Well maybe one or two...but the challenges were well pitched and the activity was pacy and lots of fun. The setting was atmospheric and staff member Scott enhanced that with his briefing and characterful support. We've never done this sort of activity before, but all really enjoyed it, and have already recommended it to friends. We are planning another visit, to another room!
