What is the VIP Bundle?
The VIP Bundle is a new feature in Vanishing Act and Sweet Dreams. The VIP Bundle includes three major benefits for players.
* Please check the exact dates in the Adventure Escape Mysteries app. The iOS and Google Play games typically launch first and will be in Early Access for roughly 3 weeks before Open Access.
How much does the VIP Bundle cost?
The VIP Bundle costs $8.99 USD (this will adjust based on your local currency). The Keys and Stars you get with the bundle are worth $9.99, so you can get the bonus content and early access for less than the cost of the keys and stars purchased separately! All the hints and skips are free in the bonus chapter so you’ll never be stuck for long.
Do I get access to all VIP content if I purchase one VIP Bundle?
You do not. If you purchase the Sweet Dreams VIP Bundle, you'll get access to the Sweet Dreams VIP Content, 30 stars, and unlock all Sweet Dreams chapters. However, you won't get access to the Vanishing Act Bonus Chapter. Some players have asked for a different option that will give access to all VIP exclusive content, and we are considering that. Please let us know if that is something you are interested in so we can gauge interest!
I don't see the VIP Bundle. What's wrong?
First, make sure the VIP Bundle is available. We'll announce the launch date on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and send out an email. The iOS and Google Play versions will be available first. Amazon Kindle, Steam, Windows, and Facebook will come later.
If it is past the launch date and you do not see the VIP Bundle, the most common situation is that you need to update your Adventure Escape Mysteries app. The app might not automatically update, so you can manually update it on iOS or Google Play. If you have more problems, please email us.
I bought the VIP Bundle on the wrong account! What should I do?
Some players were logged into the wrong Haiku account, or not logged in when purchasing the VIP Bundle. We can transfer the VIP Bundle purchase to the correct account if you email support. The process is currently manual, so please give our Customer Support team a little time to make this happen.
Do I need to buy the VIP Bundle to finish the story in the main game?
No, you do not. You can complete the main story by playing for free. Bonus Content is meant to supplement the main story.
Will every future mystery have a VIP Bundle?
We don’t know yet. There is a VIP Bundle for Vanishing Act and Sweet Dreams. Whether or not we continue depends on how you, our players, react to them. Let us know what you think about the bundles and if we should keep doing them.
Will Bonus Content be the same for each game?
We are experimenting with different types of VIP exclusive bonus content. Stardust: A Puzzle Collection is a series of different puzzles that the players complete to learn more about the world of Revi in Sweet Dreams. Homecoming is a bonus chapter that explores Detective Kate in high school. Let us know which ones you prefer!
Is the Bonus Content available for everyone eventually?
At this time, Bonus Content is exclusively for players who purchase the VIP Bundle.
Can I buy the VIP Bundle after the Early Access period?
Yes, you can still purchase the VIP Bundle when the game is in Open Access.
Why are you offering VIP content?
Our goal is to keep making Adventure Escape for years to come. Imagine if we could release a high quality Adventure Escape update every month instead of every 3-4 months like we do now! This is something many players have asked for.
To do that, we have to keep bringing on amazingly talented people and manage the rising costs of creating Adventure Escape. Our standards have constantly been going up–if you look at some of the art in Vanishing Act versus our first game, Pyramids of Giza, you can see the increase in quality.
At the same time, we want to offer something that is valuable for players. We hope the combination of unique content, early access, and the included keys and stars will be exciting for our players.
If you choose to purchase the VIP Bundle, we’re thankful to you for supporting Haiku Games. You’re helping us update Adventure Escape with new, free mysteries for years to come. Hopefully this explains our decision to create the VIP bundle. As always, let us know your thoughts!
