Each of the games were developed by the Novus team (Breakout) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia who are currently has worldwide outlets in Canada, United States, South Korea and Kazakhstan.

If you are up for an adventure, you can be part of the Nuevo Union as you play your part in salvaging the arts in The War for Rembrandt or be part of the scientists who try to recollect your memory for a mass destruction mission in Project Fallout. Or be the spiteful mischief who wants to find out secret ingredient of a famous physician’s miraculous medicine in Materia Medica.  Fans of magic and mystery would be thrilled with the magical elements in Chamber of Hocus while the Horror’s fans can explore the mystery of the puppeteer in Mr Oswald’s Greatest Show.

How it works is customers who are interested to play can book online or walk-in. All rooms are private. Safety briefing and characters briefing will done prior to the game play. Once inside, the game master will describes the scenario and the tasks to be completed.
