It is a game where you find clues and solve puzzles placed in one or more rooms by using perception skills. Unlike the examples played on computer the adventure takes place in a real room with real puzzles designed with real materials and so you have to solve these puzzles with physical interaction in given time that’s why it is called “Real” Life Escape Game.
When did the Real Life Escape Games come up ?
Various sources suggest that the first examples came up in year 2006 both in America and Hong Kong.
Those escape games were usually activities designed to amuse junior students in summer camps. They were mostly rooms filled with loads of puzzles and it was not about escaping from the room. In real terms, first escape game emerges in 2008 at Kyoto, Japan. This new type of entertainment rapidly spread around the world and in 2014 it showed up in Turkey.
