Puss-In-Boots: The Retail Romp



The Black Cat Detectives are on the case again!

Marcus Carabas, the heir apparent of I.T. company Castle Corp. has vanished while on his way to a dinner date, and you've been approached by his distraught partner to uncover his whereabouts!
Your only clues are pages from his notebook, and eyewitness accounts that he was last seen in the company of several mysterious individuals.

The clock is ticking. Can you track down Marcus and help give this story the happy ending it deserves? Or will this night end in tears?

Taking place at orchardgateway, this Escape Game turns the venue into a multi-level playground where you, as investigators from the Black Cat Detective Agency, have to follow the clues in your dossier, explore all of the mall, solve the puzzles, and track down Marcus Carabas's whereabouts.

But just finding his location may not be enough. You'll need all your wits to also figure out how to help him get to his date in one piece and to achieve a happy ending!

The TWO (2) FASTEST TEAMS to solve all the puzzles and clock the fastest times on our event leaderboard will win 2D1N hotel staycation at Hotel Jen orchardgateway.

All participants will also receive limited edition goodie bags (while stocks last) from orchardgateway and be entered into a raffle with prizes from our gracious sponsors:

1. Who are the organizers of The Retail Romp?

This escape game is created by Neo Tokyo Project, a pop culture marketing guild specializing in bespoke campaigns, events and experiences. The company has organized conventions like International Cosplay Day Singapore and Doujin Market, serviced large-scale gaming events like Licence2Play, GE3, and GameStart Asia, and curated community activities for geeks, gamers and fans of pop culture.

The Retail Romp is graciously supported by orchardgateway, with goodie bags and prizes sponsored by tenants of the mall.

2. What are the benefits of escape games?

The game helps foster cooperation and teamwork, creativity and lateral thinking as you use your wits, the tools in the dossier, and your innate talents to crack the clues.

It's also great fun, and a new, exciting way for you to bond with your family, friends or colleagues.

3. How is a typical game session like?

The Retail Romp is a large-scale, immersive puzzle game and scavenger hunt. Unlike escape games that trap you in a room, the entire mall is your playground and your team may wander about freely. Work together with your fellow Black Cat Detectives to solve the puzzles in your dossier and overcome the challenges within the stipulated time.

4. Do I need to enter any stores or buy anything while playing the game?

Unless instructed specifically by a puzzle, you do not need to enter any stores at the mall while playing the game.

In all cases, you do not need to make any purchases from any stores as part of the game.

5. How many players can there be at a table?

The recommended number of players is four (4) per table. This is the optimal number to ensure that your table has a fair chance of solving the puzzles within the allotted time.

Do purchase tickets for a full table of four players if you wish to play the game together with your friends.

Individual players and players in groups of less than four may be merged to make a full table in the event that we are oversubscribed.

6. What time should I arrive at

You should be present 15-minutes before the start of your chosen session.

Do report to The Tube (Level 3) and look out for our organizing team!

7. How long does each game last?

Each session is about 90-minutes long (15-minutes briefing, 60-minutes game time, 15-minutes debrief). Be the fastest team each day and you'll stand a chance to win a hotel stay at Hotel Jen!

Your table leader will receive an SMS with instructions when the allocated time is up.

Will the game be affected by the weather?

This game takes place indoors, and as such, will continue whether it's rain or shine.

9. Who can I contact for more information?

For additional queries, email info [at] neotokyoproject.com and we will endeavor to get back to you within three (3) working days.
