Escape from St. Margaret’s Island in our exclusive online escape game…
It has been a long and difficult year, and you’re feeling pretty exhausted. What you really want is some peace, quiet and a chance to recharge your emotional batteries.
So, when you are offered the chance of a week’s holiday on a remote Scottish island, you find yourself saying yes without hesitation.
But things don’t quite work out… when you arrive at your destination, the island is flooded. And even worse: you’re stranded, with no way to get home. In a few hours, the whole island will be underwater, and so will you!
Get together with a group of friends and see if you can escape from the Island before the tide comes in…

HOW TO PLAY
Once you have made your donation, you will receive an email containing a code. The code is the password to enter the game.
Recommended team size is 2-6 players. If you have a larger group, you might want to divide it into smaller teams. Feel free to challenge the groups to see who can escape the fastest.
Play with your team at home or virtually via Zoom or any other video conferencing software. We suggest something with screen-sharing ability.
Work together to decipher the clues and solve the puzzles to escape from the Island. There is no time limit on the game (although the estimated time to complete it is around 90 minutes).
When you are playing, and you find a locked door that you do not know the password for, DO NOT click on your back browser button as this will re-set the game! Instead, click on the small X at the top right-hand corner of the lock mechanism, which will take you back to the puzzle page.
Have a pen and paper handy, and make LOTS of notes: you never know when something is going to be useful!
The game is online and will need internet access to run. Use the internet to help you! You can look up answers to questions.
Turn your audio ON. If you use a password manager, you might wish to turn it off for the duration of the game, as it can interfere with the passwords in the puzzles.
The game works best on a laptop or PC – it is not suitable for mobile and tablet devices.
If you have any gameplay issues please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Find the clues. Solve the puzzles. Escape from the island – before it sinks!
