Escape Game is the name commonly given for a type of physical adventure game in which the participants are locked inside a room, having to use the elements they find in that room to get out. Also known as Room Escape, this sort of entertainment presents the players with a fictional scenario with a mystery that needs solving.
The first Escape Game was created in the U.S. in 2006 by a group of programmers in Silicon Valley. Shortly after, other countries started adopting this form of entertainment, like Japan, where Takao Kato invented the Real Escape Game.
