Steampunk DLC Steam

Escape Simulator: Steampunk is now available via a new update. This DLC adds four new rooms to the game that players can explore. Those who want to create their custom rooms will be happy to know that Room Editor 2.0 is introduced in this patch.

In Escape Simulator: Steampunk, players will traverse the steampunk airship known as Valor. They will begin at the Crew Headquarters where they will be awakened by a sudden explosion. Players should then proceed to the Engine Room and the Greenhouse while solving puzzles along the way. The ultimate goal is to reach the Helm Room and regain control of the airship. 

Improved Room Editor

The developers also upgraded Escape Simulator’s Room Editor, which they call Room Editor 2.0. One of the most significant changes here is that players can now load custom models as props using the new model importer. This means they can either make their assets from scratch or import one from the .gltf file, essentially giving players lots of opportunities to create something special.

Other changes in the Steampunk DLC are:

Room Editor 2.0
