Dear Guest,

Welcome to our Escape Room. We are so happy to see you here!

Below you will find the link ENTER to start the game.


  • Just like in a physical escape room, you do not need any search engines. If you do need something outside of this escape room, we will provide a link to it.

  • This escape room is meant to be a playful exercise; please don't break anything or use brute force to solve a puzzle.

  • This escape room can be completed in roughly 1 hour.

  • If you dare, feel free to invite others to enter the Data Horror Escape Room.


  • All clues to the puzzles can be found in the room or are linked in the room. Look everywhere!

  • We advise you to have a pen and paper or an empty document ready to take notes.

  • This website works best in Chrome or Firefox

Want to know more about research data management?

Research Data Management (RDM) refers to a set of practices to ensure responsible handling of data in scientific research. It is important before, during, and after your research. Part of good RDM is writing a Data Management Plan (DMP) to record decisions about how you are going to manage your data.

Most universities in the Netherlands have teams of experts to help researchers with various RDM-related questions. Depending on your affiliation, check out the RDM resources and support at VU Amsterdam, Eindhoven University of Technology and Leiden University.
