A real-time online escape room

Mayday is a fully self-guided and challenging online escape room.

Help captain Roger
A cyclone is about to hit an island and captain Roger needs your help to land the plane, find the botanist and his work and get back to safety.

Real-time action
Mayday is a real-time game, which means any action one player makes is directly seen by others. So first discuss your next action with your team.

Reach the leaderboard
Is your team competitive? There's a built-in leaderboard in our online portal that shows the teams with the best results. Do you think your team has what it takes?
