Great little game. Didn't have anything chasing me, so that's always a plus.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Boolean Escape is inspired by the Room-Escape Flash games of the early 2000's.
Everyone who plays will lock their key into a combination safe. Who's key you find is entirely down to you guessing a correct combination. It might take you a while but eventually you'll discover a key. If you don't have the patience you can play Boolean Escape without a key.
A boolean can be true or false. A button can be on or off. A lever can be up or down. A key can lead to safety or can lock you away forever.
This is a short game (probably about 10 minutes) where the aim of the game is to escape the strange world you find yourself in.
Your fate lies in the hands of a previous player.
- Given the nature of this game, it's important that you have an internet connection when playing.
- Don't pick combination 1234 to lock away your key. It's the most obvious and most likely to be over written by someone else!
- Despite testing I may have missed some bugs. If this is the case I'll most likely discover them while watching videos of other players.
- Crazy secure firewalls might interfere with submitting keys. It works for me :)
Disclaimer: I have no control over the names people have submitted with their keys. That said I'll monitor what is being submitted and anything racist, sexist, homophobic or offensive will be removed.

Love the idea of this game, and the looks, and the sound, and everything. I really love what you have done. The sad part for me is that I cannot find the combination for the first key, but I feel as if that is part of the game. You can either get out or be stuck forever. I really feel like i learned a life lesson from this game in some way. Hopefully someone else will find it out and hopefully it is not a bad key.
Hoping to make a video on it soon, thank you for this experience!
Thanks for your kind words. It’s an odd game which is entirely based on how many people have played it. For every key (combination) that is used is then deleted. But it’s not deleted until that person makes a key of their own, so in theory there should the same amount or more of combinations. That being said, I might’ve got my code wrong. It might be frustrating but if you spend long enough spamming diff we ent combos you’ll eventually find a key. Try 1234 first. I get an email every time someone adds a new key and you wouldn’t believe how many people use 1234. Think like a human and you’ll find a key. Thanks for playing and be sure to leave someone a key.
Dan, 1234 isn't the key to unlock safe. I did try all four digits 1111, 2222, 3333, 4444, 5555 until 9999. I would like recording a video about your game. It would be cool if the last person who done last password left the the own game algorithm could engrave it somewhere randomly or makes some hint to uncover and we need seek the code to access to safe. It would be interesting, because just trying discover without searching or combine elements or looking details to discovery is too hard and almost impossible. Thanks dude. But in the general is great. Just it would be more fair and less stressful if we may uncover these codes looking up details in scenario.
Thanks for your key, Saft! :)
Hey Dan, this is awesome and I adore it. It's so cool and unique and refreshing. I don't have much to donate, but I hope it helps.
I don't understand the point of this. It seems to be 99% the same experience no matter what you do and the only thing to really do in the experiene is try and guess a 4 digit password someone else made and to create your own 4 digit code for some one else to try and guess?
I can't understand why everyone else seems to think this is amazing when it seems to me anything but.
I can only imagine the other posters have never played a puzzle or a computer game as if you have experiened either this is utterly forgettable.
I can’t figure out the password for the last key!!! Someone please help!
this was such a cool game! I love how it depends on other players for you to escape. thanks $$$CAH|SH|$$$, whoever you are. I found your key and escaped
This Is amazing! even word's can't describe how! it is rather scary and very cool at the same time. but i LOVE that! the coding on other players (wether different place or network) it is very amazing! the art style, the music, all of that! wow! applause to you, good sir! i am currently editing a video i made about this. you'd love the reactions XD i have played a couple of times already! can't wait for new stuff you make!
Thanks man! I noticed your codes 😉
Hey how are you doing such games? I love them! could you make a tutorial or something ? :)
I'm usually not one for escape room type games but this on was pretty cool. The art style for sure had me drawn to the game. I'm a little late on a video but here is mine.
Where can I download the music that plays in the background? Fantastic little game by the way :)
Hey thanks. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I have not made the soundtrack publicly available at this time.
Awesome. Love a good escape the room/layers of fear type game. Hopefully whoever finds my key has fun guessing the code. Good job on this... :)
This game was super enjoyable! I love the basic concept of everything is based off of if something is true or false. Haveing to figure out keys that someone had left as well is a really awesome idea! Amazing job! Can anyone get my key?
Great video man. Really enjoyed it! Don’t worry, you’re not the only person who read “Can you find a key” as a signal to look for a key to open the combination lock. Bit of a wording error on my part I think. Appreciate you taking the time to make a video about it.
If you had even an inkling of interest in Moirai then this game is for you!! If you have no idea what Moirai is then this is the game for you!! If you have never played a video game in your life then this is the game for you!! Basically what I am saying is play this game... What are you wating for, get playing!!
Great video man. Thanks for taking the time to play it and the kind recommendations. Feel free to rate the game on itch! Every little helps.
This was a fantastic experience! I really liked the concept that other players influence you, and that whether you live or die is based on the kindness (or lack thereof) of another player. I would love to see more of this.
Really loved the concept of this game! I really like that your fate is completely decided by the person before you; gives you a reason to want to play it again for the other ending. Great game!

This is a really cool idea and another great game! Of course, 1234 worked.
Thanks for the game, it was very fun and interesting. I managed to guess the password of the player before me. Wonder if the next player guessed mine? If only there was a way to know... :P
I really like this but how the heck am I supposed to know the combination another person set up?
I was able to use my own key
Hey Loueehsah. I'm glad you got out eventually. There are a lot of combinations out there, so it might take you a while to find someone else's key but eventually you will. The human brain isn't too good at coming up with truly random numbers so try some obvious combinations and you'll get one sooner or later. Or don't and stay in the room forever :)
Awesome game Dan! I need to play it again to see the other ending :p
I've got your key Albi!
Thanks for the video dude. Entertaining as always and well done for finding a key!
Really good. Freaky and weird, but never terrifying (I don't like frightening games). The main gameplay is good enough with some interesting keys so as to create some tense situations. The retro aesthetic and mood are great, but I noticed some clipping with walls because the character is too big (regarding walls and roof). Set camera's clipping planes value to 0.1f - so it could be more efficient. It's not really annoying, but I gues that you could improve your project fixing these minor bugs. Overall, I liked the experience - and I finally escaped. Thank you ++
PS : have a drink :)
Hey Geckoo1337 thanks for the advice on the clipping. I'll definitely give that a shot, hopefully that'll fix the issue. I'm glad you enjoyed the game. Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment.
hi, big thx for the great experience :) very good my friend :) greetings from germany 5/5
Thanks for the video Rosiger. Perhaps try starting the game with less graphic settings because it looks like you're getting some slow FPS, but maybe that's just the video encoding?
So, it's like Moirai but not?
Thanks Mary key 1111 for your kindness! :)

i have not played a game like this yet! very well done! nice graphics, nice sounds, awesome gameplay! i loved it! good job Dan! :D
Thanks Jay. You found me a bug too :) Fixed it now. You shouldn't be able to lock the first combination safe. You should only be able to lock your key away in the final combo safe.
2017 Key :)
the screen is all pink??
Really liked the concept, wonder who here got my key?
really enjoyed this game i got far too here is my playthrough
Cheers 2purpleswitch. It's always terrifying watching the first video unless I left a major obvious bug in there!
Nice work, I'm fan of your stuff!
