Alright. This post is coming after the Game Garage on the 14th of January.

How do you create an Escape Room with BLUERABBIT?

Well, first of all, what is an escape room?

An escape room is an activity where the players have to find clues in order to solve a riddle. The consequence of solving the riddle is “escaping the room” where you were locked (not really locked, this isn’t a terror movie).

So within BLUERABBIT you can create all the elements that are needed for an escape room to exist and you can use the software to provide feedback to the players against the clues they find in the process.


20 Achievements that will provide clues to get the 10 digit code.

Blog Entries

20 Blog Posts, each providing media to figure out 20 keywords.


1 Mission with instructions.

What you will make


An escape room with a goal to find a 10 digit code.


  1. The Goal: The secret code, the last key, the name, the contract, the combination of the safe, etc…
  2. Clues: The parts of the puzzle, numbers to the combination, the key to the safe, etc…



  1. A new Adventure: The place where the players will play.
  2. Blog Posts, Achievements and Items: The mechanics where you put the clues.
  3. Adventure Intro & Mission for instructions:  A place to put the goal and include the instructions on how to solve the escape room.



Open up this spreadsheet. It has all clues, keywords and the 10 digit code. It also has tips on good practices.

  1. Go to the hamburger menu on the top left.
  2. Click on the last button (the + sign)
  3. Add new Post

Step 2: Post Settings

  1. The headline should not give away any information. I always just put a generic “Found Something” label.
  2. You can use the image that will provide the clue as the Post Image.
  3. Choose a color. It’s important for readability
  4. Level -> 1
  5. Display style: Choose whatever you like, there are four styles, makes no difference but helps visually when looking for clues to add some variation.
  6. Secondary headline > Leave empty
  7. Content > Add the Image that is the clue. You may add some phrase that will help with a bit of context as long as it doesn’t give away the theme or something else.

Step 3: Save the Post

Rinse and repeat for every clue


4. Create a new Achievement for every clue

Step 1: Create the achievement

  1. Go to the hamburger menu on the top left.
  2. Click on the last button (the + sign)
  3. Add new Achievement

Step 2: General Settings

  1. The achievement name should be just CLUE. Don’t number them it makes things stressful for the players.
  2. Use the image of the clue for reference. That way players can keep track of what they have solved.
  3. Choose color
  4. Achievement type: Badge
  5. Available for All Paths
  6. Max Players : Empty or Zero to have no limit
  7. XP: 500
  8. BLOO / Coins: 50
  9. Deadline: Empty
  10. Content: The part of the clue that will solve the 10 digit code. From the spreadsheet, the content of the column “clue”

Step 3: Achievement Codes

Switch tabs on the upper left.

In the Magic Code field, add the KEYWORD for this clue. You can add phrases (keywords with spaces) just make sure that there isn’t a space at the end or the players will never solve that clue.

Step 4: Add one extra achievement for the final code

Add one more achievement so that the players can solve the escape room. Just make another one but the with the 10 digit number as the magic code.

Add a cool image for those who manage to solve it.

And that’s it. You just created a complete escape room in BLUERABBIT!
