An extremely challenging mod which forces players to think outside of the box... in order to get out of the box. Each room is a unique puzzle, and is always full of surprises. Not for players who aren't up for an intense, claustrophobic experience.

As July brings an end to school, August brings the end of development.
It is with great pleasure I announce the official release date for Escape The Room - Friday the 13th
ERmod has become much more than initially intended. It is now truly the intense and claustrophobic experience I have advertised. It's been a good long time in development, I know you will all be pleased with the results.

Some highlights to look forward to:

-A plot!
-Voice acting!
-Many more challenges!

Attached is a screen shot of the opening scene.

Thank you all for playing!

I guess it's not for everyone, most people complain about how EASY it is

Such a dumbhead, you said it was hard, he just said how people complain about how easy it is. So you just said what you just said for nothing.

Glad its finally released. I'm going to download it right now and play. I LOVED the demo! Now I get to play the Full Version! Yippy!

No I said it because I personally found it too hard to play, mostly cuz I didn't get what I needed to do, apparently it's because I'm an incompetent idiot but that's fine, still makes my complaint valid since incompetent idiots play games too and therefore are part of the demographic.

Well I finished it.
I had a ton of fun, and enjoyed the mod quite a bit, except on the train level as I went through the portal I encountered a CTD. I get on every time I go through the portal, so I can't continue. :(
But overall a pretty fun game.

What's a CTD?
The train map is the last map, so if you just want to see the ending scene, type map er_cyclicrebirth into the console.

It was okay, but I got stuck on the kitchen level and just couldn't figure it out, if someone could help that would be great.

What I noticed was that there needed to be more to tell what was useful and what wasn't. There should have been much less physics props as that would have made it a lot easier. They kept getting in the way and I had to suicide a few times.

I had actually written out a really long review but chrome crashed and I can't get it back, so I can't be bothered writing it all out again. But my main point is listed in the comment.

Grab the meat cleaver and use it on the rope, make sure the tin basket lands upright and grab the red button in the tin basket and bring it to the oven, it should now leak gas if placed on the oven, unplug the electric cord from the wall and bring it over to the gas, now stand back, the explosion is powerful enough to send the tables flying :D
