An escape room, also known as an escape game. Is a mental and physical adventure based game in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles. Using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives. Escape rooms may consist of a large, single room, or span multiple rooms. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. Escape rooms are inspired by “escape-the-room”–style video games. This is also the likely source of their name. Games are set in a variety of fictional locations, such as prison cells, dungeons, and space stations, and usually the various puzzles and riddles themselves follow the theme of the room. Sometimes, the backstory of the room is told by Game Hosts, or alternatively, a television. Escape rooms became popular in North America, Europe and East Asia in the 2010s.
