Themes of Escape Rooms
Escape rooms basically have some or the other theme and storyline. The ‘rooms’ are of course fictional like prison cells, space stations and dungeons. For example, in our above-mentioned Dutch friends’ website, they offer Van Gough code theme to honor the legendary artist in which you have to solve puzzles that are hidden in various paintings to escape from the room. There are more such amazing themes that take you to you another world and let you enjoy the thrill.
How Many People can Play?
The beauty of the escape rooms is the games can be played by any number of people. And if the group is large, it offers more fun. However, there are even games which only 2 people can play. For example, another theme on our friends’ escape rooms is ‘Escape from the Dark’ which can be played by only 2 people.
Physical Version of Video Games
Escape rooms are actually a physical version of a genre of video games named ‘escape the room’. The video game is a point-and-click adventure game which needs the player to escape from prison by making use of her/his surrounding.
Popularity of Games of Social and Physical Participation
Video games are making players social by allowing talking to other players while playing. Games like Wii made playing entirely physical. Players, although are to play some games alone, they like to post their results on social media, to show them to others. Now Escape Rooms, emerged from a video game genre, are entirely about social and physical participation in the game, while offering intellectual inspiration too. According to sociologists, when we are under emotions like fear, anxiety, stress and fun, we perform better. In escape rooms the same principle is used as you have to escape from the room within a particular time.
