About Our Secret Below

An escape room thriller-horror from solo game developer Brian Clarke (creator of The Mortuary Assistant and The Subject). Our Secret Below is a story about a woman who has been abducted and must break out of her cell, learn about her captor’s past, and use that knowledge to escape.


Nia Davis, has been taken to the basement of an unfamiliar house. Waking up in a haze, Nia does not remember anything before this moment. In her weakened state, she overhears her captor and learns she does not have much time left to live. He is obsessed, and no one else can have her. She isn’t the first woman he’s brought down here and there has to be some way out.


Our Secret Below is a story-driven escape room that goes deeper than things appear. Search through the belongings of your captor, learn all you can, and find out why this man is so obsessed. Find keys, codes, and other items to unlock personal belongings and make your escape without being caught. But strange things start to happen the more you find. Your captivity may be more than it seems.
