As you progress through the steps in this online escape room series, there are a few things you can do to ensure the best experience.
#1 Use the same email address throughout the escape room series.
We may send you hints or reminders to keep you on track, and it could be confusing if you start getting these messages in more than one email box.
If you ever need to switch to a new email address, before using a new address in an escape room form, use the “Update your profile” link available at the bottom of every email we’ve sent you.
#2 Move through all the web pages in the pre-set order.
The story is unlikely to make sense if you skip ahead, plus, you’ll likely miss an item for your Inventory or a clue for a future step.
NOTE: Skipping ahead would require brute force guessing of web page addresses and passwords, so you don’t have to worry about doing it accidentally. 😉
#3 Press the big buttons at the bottom of popup windows when available.
These buttons will often refresh the page to give you a new start at entering passwords into a form.
Lastly, to progress in the escape room, you’ll need to enter several pre-defined passwords calling for characters from a US English keyboard. If this is not the type of keyboard you normally use, be sure to set your keyboard to US English under configurations before attempting to enter a password. Check out these instructions for Mac or instructions for PC if you aren’t familiar with how to do this.
