‘Escape Simulator’ surpasses one million sales mark

Pine Studio has announced that Escape Simulator has sold over 1,000,000 copies since the release of the game in October last year. To celebrate this amazing milestone, the developers have released a free new escape room with a theme that might be familiar to the Pine fans.

The free escape room is a homage to Cats in Time, a previous escape game from Pine Studio. It arrives alongside a series of updates and improvements to the room editor to make things even easier for the dedicated room builders who have produced more than 2,500 rooms to date! To get an impression of the new room, check out the new trailer:

Since its release, Escape Simulator has now been played by over 1,000,000 puzzle and escape room fans from all over the world. This is a huge milestone celebrated by Pine Studio with the release of a new escape room for their fans. This escape room is inspired by an earlier game developed by the studio: Cats in TimeCats in Time is a puzzle game on PC and mobile, where you have to find all 300+ hidden cats that have gone missing while they were playing with a time machine made by Professor Tim Edger.

In Escape Simulator you must figure out how to time travel to meet up with Professor Edger in 1921, but the time machine isn’t quite ready to go – and when it is working, you might need to unravel some twists in time to reach your final destination!

CTO and co-owner Tomislav Podhraški is very happy with this milestone: “We’d like to thank every single one of you for joining us on this journey! When we started, we placed bets with each other on how many units we’d sell, and needless to say those expectations have been exceeded by more than we could have ever hoped for. With all your support we can keep expanding Escape Simulator and we already have many plans to do so, starting with more free rooms and updates to the room editor. And later this summer, we’ll reveal some exciting new DLCs that we’re currently working on. So stay tuned for more news!”

This week, Escape Simulator and Cats in Time will be discounted by 20 per cent on Steam! Pine Studio holds regular room creation competitions to stimulate the Escape Simulator builder community, and some  rooms came out of the recent Build-A-Room #2 contest. All the rooms are made using the in-game editor, and the variety on display shows just how powerful a tool it is – with today’s update making it even more handy to use!

To go with the new free room there is a new builder challenge that calls for players to create a room themed around time travel!
