An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit, or having completed a mission. The games are physical versions of “escape the room” video games. The first escape game (Real Escape Room) was invented in Japan in 2007 by Takao Kato. Typical elements of an “escape room” are : 1) Teamwork, the number of group is between two and 12. Working as a team is essential to escape the room. 2) A story – escape rooms are usually themed around some kind of storyline. It can be story created by the company itself or a story based on popular movies or books. 3) An atmosphere – the room is decorated in particular style matching the theme of the game. 4) Puzzles- you need to find and solve them. 5) Time limit – usually one hour to escape the room.
