Take a break, and visit the relaxed seaside town of Little Sodaburg.

Bring up to 5 of your friends, and experience a time like no other.

You’ll marvel at our collection of fish statues, visit our castle ruins and tour the factory of the universe's most popular soda.

Just don’t swim in the river, if you know what’s good for you!

In the unlikely event your tour goes awry, you'll probably be embroiled in a comedy conspiracy across the town and its websites, cooperating with your group in live games, puzzles, and challenges, and maybe even saving the world.

Really unique and a game where you have to work together. Your screen is different than your colleagues throughout certain parts of the tour, so its a very collaborative effort. Loved this very much, and after you play you will remember ROOMBY for some  time!

Reviews by escape room review sites

What begins as a perfectly normal trip to a coastal town takes a completely unexpected turn. Nothing is as it seems in tranquil Little Sodaburg. Our tourist group has to prove itself as amateur detectives. We suspect a solid conspiracy. In order to uncover it, we have to do thorough research and go in search of clues on the town’s websites.

It’s o-fish-al, we had a blast playing this game! The ridiculousness of the storyline, the density of puns, the variety of the puzzles, the necessity of teamwork ensuring everyone had their moment, and the creativity of the interface all contributed to making the overall experience absolutely unique and a joy to play. I think 4 would be the perfect number for this game, though anywhere from 2-6 works. It’s family-friendly in its theming, though some of the puzzles might be tougher for younger kids, but they could definitely enjoy sitting with you as you play. If perch-ance you like dad jokes, quirkiness, and cooperative puzzles, you should absolutely give this one a go! If you end up playing, let minnow what you think!

If you only play one more at home game ever again in your whole life, make sure it’s The Traveller’s Guide to Little Sodaburg. It’s hard to still be impressed this far into lockdown, hundreds of ‘at home escape games’ later… And yet every single element of Little Sodaburg was delightful and innovative. It’s funny, it’s light-hearted, and it’s packed with hidden details.
