Escape Academy asks you to complete escape rooms and each will be filled with puzzles and challenges you must overcome. Each mission will offer unique riddles and clues to help you escape, but they can still be challenging. Below you can find a guide on how to complete the first mission, Introduction, in Escape Academy.
Step One – Chest and Goblets
When you begin, immediately go to the podium on your left. This gives you your first clue to look at the clock. A note from management will hint at 12:30. Use this on the chest to the left of the clock and input 1230 as the code. Inside, you will find a blue goblet with the letter F on it and a piece of paper with colors on it—this is your next clue.
Step Two – The Safe and Key of Truth
You need to find the yellow and red goblet. One is in the trash bin, and the other in the cardboard box. With both of these goblets, you can match the letters on them with the colors on the sheet to spell FREE. Input this into the safe combination to get the Key of Truth. This key opens the door and lets you return to the lobby.
Step Three – Television and Letters
Your next puzzle involves the television and the remote. You need to input a code, which can be found on the t-shirts to the left of the TV. Input Up, Right, Down, Up, and Right on the remote to display a series of letters—these will come into play shortly. Grab the business cards off the bulletin board and enter the door labeled Restricted.
Step Four – Scanners and the Key of Lies
Upon entering the room, note the poster on the right wall. This is your cipher for the letters on the TV. These letters can be translated to match the business cards. Next, you must figure out the order of letters and cards and place them on the scanners at the back wall. Here is the order of cards you need to place.
- WRO – Jeb's Card – Scanner 1
- NYYVR – Allie's Card – Scanner 2
- RRY – E.E.L.'s Card – Scanner 3
Step Five – Bathroom Break for Victory
Once you do this, the fish above the scanners opens and reveals the Key of Lies. Use this to unlock the bathroom door. Head inside and open the door labeled Out of Order. Descend into the rooms below to meet the Headmaster of Escape Academy and complete Introductions, the first mission.
