Hello, everyone!

My wife Sarah and I are the creators of Escape Team. We'd be thrilled to get your feedback on it!

Don't forget scissors, colorful pens and some tape. It works best with a team of 2-4 people.

Now this is an interesting take on gameplay.
I always did like innovative stuff like that adventure time metroidvania game where you could create your lvls on a piece of paper and "scan" it.
Will try this later on

Thanks! Let me know how you liked it! :-) (*Scanning* solved paper puzzles would be actually a very interesting idea!)
