Passwords, puzzles, hidden clues… In true Bunker fashion there is one goal in an escape room – get out.

We’re thrilled to announce the Frictional Mod Jam 2024: Escape Room Edition, where creativity meets strategy, and innovation intertwines with mystery. 

This is your chance to showcase your ingenuity, puzzle-solving prowess, and narrative flair by designing an escape room experience that captivates and thrills players.

Join us over the summer for an event focused on HPL modding! You’re welcome to participate alone or in a small team (up to 4 people). For peer support, head on over to our Discord server.


The jam will start on May 28th and run until August 28th 

You have until midnight on the 28th to submit your work and the winners will be checked and throughout the remainder of the month.


This Frictional Fan Jam is specifically for HPL modding. You are free to use HPL2 and HPL3, or even HPL1 if you’re brave enough.

Aside from the game assets, you are also welcome to utilize other assets you can legally use, or have permission to use from the creators.

Submitting your work

Upload your mod on a platform like ModDB or Steam Workshop.

For entering the event, please submit a link to your work through the following form:

Frictional Mod Jam 2024: Escape Room event submissions

All works will be showcased on the #2024_Mod_Jam_showcase on Discord.

Note: You are more than welcome to partake in the jam without competing if you just wish to be creative – this jam is for everyone, so just let us know.

The winner(s) will receive A3-sized posters and a secret prize and sent to their home address

The winners will also receive Steam-keys to any Frictional game of their choice.
