Real Escape Game"Escape from the Despair Toilet" THE ONLY WAY TO ESCAPE IS TO WORK TOGETHER!

STORY

You are a 5th grade student at an elementary school.
On one faithful day during class, you experience a sharp pain in your stomach.
It was just a while more until break time,
but unable to hold it in any longer...

"T-Teacher... May I go to the restroom?"

Through the embarrassment, I mustered the courage to say.

All eyes turned to me, and it felt like the entire class was laughing at me through their eyes.
I might be overthinking, but it's better than leaking in the classroom!
It was that moment when another hand shot into the air.

"Teacher, may I go too?"

It was the plain kid at the window seat.
The kid who is barely noticed in class... Or that might actually be me.
Was he having a stomach ache too?

"At this time?! Fine, go quickly both of you. And make sure you're back before the school bell goes off!"

I stood up and walked out of the classroom as calmly as I could.

"Let's hurry. The class will make fun of us if we're not back before the school bell!"

"W-Which toilet is the closest?"

"The one at the back of the staff room! We can sneak in at this time."

"But isn't that one off limits?"

"....It's fine! Let's go!"

Neither of us knew that this would lead us to the start of an unfortunate event.
That those toilets had such an outrageous trick to them.....!

About this Game

Japanese Comedian
Shigeo Takahashi, Savanna

I have a bad memory of leaking myself when I was in elementary school.
I was made to wear the school’s backup trousers, and cried myself all the way home.
Looking back, if only I had the courage to say “Teacher, may I use the restroom?”,
I wouldn’t have had to endure such an embarrassing incident!
But… what if something worse happened, like getting stuck in the school toilet?! That’s true despair right there!!
That’s where the idea of “Escape from the Despair Toilet” came about.
What kind of puzzles can be found in the toilet? How can one escape from there?
What is a 2-player only system?
Being a huge fan of SCRAP and their Real Escape Games,
I put in my all and worked hand-in-hand with SCRAP to create a piece that I can be proud of.
I believe that this is the best 15-minute game there is!
The trust, friendship, and bond that is born between two people after challenging a Real Escape Game together…
I believe this game can achieve that at the highest level.

Please play this 2-player game with your close friend,
your lover, or your best buddy!!
