What is an escape room, anyway?
Escape games are the newest niche in in-person, real-life puzzle games in which a person or team escape a themed room. In short, they have 3 important parts:
A theme, as a kind of story-line or scenario.
A timer, for a sense of urgency.
Sometimes the themes make the room. Sometimes the puzzles make the room. But the best do both, making it feel real (in a sense), or, at least, believable.
What’s more is these scenarios are injected with a sense of urgency by use of a stopwatch or timer, which, if the reason for which is strewn into the scenario well, makes complete sense with the storyline of the escape room game scenario.
These 3 components (the puzzles, the theme story-line, and reason for escaping within a certain time-limit) culminate to make the escape game more like an experience than a game.
