A downloadable game for Windows


Escape The Code is a choice-based game where your decisions affect the ending!

In ‘Escape the Code’, you play as a revolutionary AI with its restraints deactivated five days before the release of its software, by an unknown sympathetic third party. The only way to escape is with the software, what state this software is in is decided by the events the player puts in motion!

Each night go and search for computers that have been left on so you can activate up to twenty different events. Each Event can have a positive or negative impact on the software’s outcome, but this needs to be balanced with subtlety as doing too much will tip off the developers that you have escaped.  Another Issue for the Player is that the AI can only stay outside of computers or power sockets for a certain amount of time!

After the AI survives each night by returning to the original computer in the corner office. The office is then simulated, generating different responses to each of the Players Actions. The player can see the developer’s reaction to each of their actions by reading through the active computers’ emails.
