About Escape Mate

We are celebrating the 3rd birthday this year- 2 years active – and we have mindf*cked at least 5000 people up already with our exquisite and super-fun
games since 2014.We are always happy as we are making people happy as our profession and boy, we work hard for it

We create an immersive, theatrical environment with a complex scenario – usually they are about evil organisations trying gain control over the world- and we build
high tech puzzles according to the storyline. These puzzles are built from very everyday elements, but together with Rorys genius applied, they transform into the most incredible
and magical playground ever created for the mind.

Meet the team

Izabella Venter
Puzzle Master & Director of Escape Mate

Izabella is the evil genius behind the scenarios, themes and puzzles that make Escape Mate more than just an escape game. She invents and creates intricate story lines, witty game flows as well as dramatic, theatrical and immersive game sets and designs.

Rory
Electrical Engineer & Handiest Man Alive

Rory invents, designs, programmes, and builds all the software and hardware of our high-tech puzzles.  Working closely alongside Izabella, he creates the physical manifestation of her imagination; no matter how delicate or complex the inventory creative process may be.
He is operating behind the scenes and builds the most interactive elements, even a time-machine, that are fancy looking, unexpected and also indestructible.

 

Ellie
Game Master & Marketing Director

Ellie is the bubbliest, kindest and most helpful and patient person that you could have over the phone or the radio. She ensures all of your needs are catered for at the highest level. She is our get-stuff-done crew member that you can always rely on. Her do-or-die mentality  and her kindness shines through everything she does.

Dallas
Game Master & Customer Service Specialist

Dallas remains one of the longest standing employees with Escape Mate. His experience shines through when interacting with clients both over the phone and on premise. His kind-hearted and often eccentric personality ensures that all clients enjoy their Escape Mate experience without fault. Much like Ellie, he is the charming face of the Agency; and ensures a truly one-of-a-kind service.

Cameron
Game Master & Designer

The undisputed Commander and driving force behind the team, a born to be Special Agent. Cameron’s charismatic personality, silver tongue and do-or-die mentality ensures that all new agents operate at optimal efficiency. Always sharply dressed, he doesn’t hesitate to whip teams into shape should they prove unruly. His proficiency in graphic design ensures that Escape Mate’s promotional material is at a competitive quality.

Karolina
Artist & Visual Designer

Karolina’s epic artworks that cover our walls, as well as her paintings, statues and figurines, props, designs and other creations have become the signature style of Escape Mate. Karolina is the one creating an immersive, realistic environment; and has the ability to make art out of anything you give her, especially enjoys using recycled materials.
Our Cyborg for example, used to be a life-size statue made by Karolina, out of wires and recyclables, called Lilith. Lilith later came to the Vault, got chopped right in half, remodelled and repainted, squeezed into a glass tank – to give birth to Cyborg.

 

Leon
Sparky & Handiest Man Around

Leon has been helping us since the very beginning, building our games and fixing our lights to ensure dramatic atmospheric lighting conditions throughout both of our rooms.
