10 tries before they die!

Your favorite 90s pop star lies dead in their apartment. Stuck behind a window across the street, you and your friends helplessly witness the scene. But before the shock sets in, time suddenly rewinds to mere minutes before their death!

You try desperately to save them, but every attempt ends in failure, causing the time loop to reset. With just 10 loops left before the future is set in stone, can you find a way to save the pop star’s life? It’s time to change their fate and escape the time loop!


What is a Real Time Loop Game?

A Real Time Loop Game is a challenge against time itself. Players relive a series of events that result in a “bad ending” over and over until they can discover the chain of actions that will change the future to get the “good ending.”

Comment from Kotaro Uchikoshi (Scenario Writer)

I had always wished for this game to be brought to the US, so it’s great to see that it’s finally happening. Concerns about the cultural differences between Japan and the US were voiced, but I am confident that the fun will translate into any language! Everyone in the world will enjoy this game.

Please play the game to see if my words are true! I’m looking forward to “The Pop Star’s Room of Doom” bringing you a new kind of excitement you’ve never experienced before.

1. This is a game event that requires you to use your detective’s mind and your powers of deduction to complete the game.
2. Gather items, find codes, and solve puzzles to find the key and escape the timeloop.
3. You must team up with other players. Strategize and cooperate – more heads are definitely better than one.
4. The amount of time you have to complete the game might be too short. However, failure to do so is nothing to be embarrassed about. The mysteries are quite tough.
5. Do not worry if you are unable to finish within the time limit. We will still allow you to leave, as leaving you in an endless time-loop is against the law.
6. Detective style clothes might help to sharpen your mind. Wear comfortable clothes but refrain from wearing heels or anything else that will slow you down.
7. Please do not spoil the fun for other participants by telling them the answers to the puzzles. That's so not cool.
8. The prize is the priceless moment when you finally find the solution and everything falls into place.
9. Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and those under 6 years of age play for free! All players under 18 will need a parent/guardian’s signature on the safety waiver in order to play. Click here to download a waiver!
