What Is An Escape Room?
Never played an escape room game before? Here’s what you need to know…
It’s A Real-Life Adventure
An escape room is a real-life adventure in which players seek to fulfil a mission inside a themed space. Players have to solve puzzles and accomplish tasks to find clues on how to proceed.
As players move forward, the backstory will gradually reveal itself, culminating in a climax at the end of the game.
The challenge is to fulfil the mission before time (60 minutes) runs out.
Can you do it?
It’s An Immersive Experience
Immersion is a key facet of an escape room experience.
Through room design, special effects, puzzle and task design and having the narrative slowly unfold, an escape room seeks to completely immerse players in the game environment.
Think of it as a movie or a video game, but you’re actually in the middle of the action, not passively viewing from the sidelines or maneuvering a controller.
It’s A Team Thing
Escape rooms are always designed to be team activities.
To win an escape room challenge, players will have to work cohesively as a single unit, dividing responsibilites and collaborating on puzzles and tasks as needed.

A Few Tips (Important For First Timers)
Enter the room and fan out in all directions. Look for anything that’s out of place or inconsistent – it could be a clue or a puzzle.
Be vocal – keep everyone updated about what you’re finding and doing.
Remember, not everything in the room is a clue.
