Escape Simulator Patch Notes – July 7, 2023


  • Fixed Puzzle prop not saving properly
  • Time scale of the water prop can now also be transitioned

Important note for builders!

Last night’s update broke the Puzzle prop save. If you’ve updated your room (saved over the previous save) after the props update (13 hours ago) you need to check you puzzle props!

How to fix your room if your puzzle props are empty:
  • Just update the puzzles in the room editor by hand. Easiest to do if you remember your settings.
  • Revert to a room backup from the Backups folder. This will revert any changes you’ve made to the room since last night.
    Go to your UGC room folder and find the Backups folder inside. Choose one of the backup files that was made before the update. Copy and paste it to your room folder and rename it to “”. This will override you file and delete any changes you made, so you might want to make a backup of that old file as well (just to be safe).
  • Copy some settings from the backup. This will revert only the puzzle props but it’s harder to do.
    Find the same backup file as mentioned in 2. Open it and the original file with some text reader. Find all puzzle components you want to revert and paste their settings into the file on the exact same position (you’ll need to do some detective work to figure out which puzzle props match).

Escape Simulator is a first-person puzzle game where you can play solo or in an online co-op. Explore a set of highly interactive escape rooms, solve puzzles, deduce riddles, and if everything fails, break stuff. The game includes 20+ rooms filled with puzzles designed by real-life escape room operators. You can also create your own escape rooms with the room editor.
