Welcome to Do Not Open! A disturbing survival horror, inspired by escape room mechanics that is inspired by masters of horror from video games, literature and cinema. Do Not Open is a tragic story about one man’s battle to retain sanity and fight to shut out the voices in his head. Escape the manor whilst dealing with a mysterious paranormal threat, stalking you. The pressure is intense as a clock ticks down to zero. The clock stops. Hurry! Solve, Hide or Die!
Procedurally designed, for replayability as each new game will have a different house layout, key objects will be in different locations, also puzzle codes and with over 2,193,360 different combinations, each playthrough will be a complete experience from beginning to end, even the plot will be a puzzle in itself. Will you be able to tie up all the loose ends to uncover the terrible truth behind the Judith manor?


Stage 1 – Play the Story.


There are 5 areas to escape from: the Basement, Dance Room, Guest Room, Kitchen, and Laboratory. In each area, you will need to find various clues and solve puzzles in order to escape the area. The Dance Room, Guest Room, and Kitchen each have a time limit of 10 minutes once you have entered them to solve everything before the monster appears. Once the monster is in a level, you will need to move quietly and hide under tables or in closets as needed. You will always have to exit each area through the door that you entered the area initially. This door will have a pink glow around it showing that it is the exit. During this playthrough you will want to become familiar with finding what the clues are and how to solve the puzzles as these will be similar to each new playthrough, however, the game is procedurally designed. Do not worry about dying in this playthrough as there is a trophy needed for the number of deaths.


Stage 2 – Play the Story again as a New Game.


To decrease the number of playthroughs needed to earn all trophies, it is highly recommended to disable the automatic Cloud Saves of the game. You will be uploading or downloading depending on your success in solving the puzzles, hiding without being seen, and escaping the area without dying. If you are successful, then do a manual upload of the game and save to the Cloud. However, if you cannot solve a puzzle, get seen by the monster, or are caught by the monster, then immediately close the game and download the Cloud save to keep the not seen, never caught, and always solve all puzzle streaks in tack.

The game will automatically save after you escape an area and the cut scene plays through. At the point when you are back inside the main area of the house, feel free to pause the game and select to quit the game. This will save the game at this point. Upload this successful area cleared to the Cloud and then open the game and continue. If done correctly you will earn all the other trophies that you did not earn in the first playthrough.

Below is a walkthrough of the game as mentioned in Stage 2: not seen, never caught, and always solve all puzzles. Note: Your playthroughs of areas may not be in the same order and the layout of the areas will more than likely different. All the codes, puzzles, values, etc. will be different. However, this video shows what you can generally expect to have to do to complete this stage.
