How did Online Escape Games began?

The basic idea of Escape Games goes back to 1988, where John Wilson created the adventure of “Behind closed doors”.

Then this kind of game became more popular after ” Crimson Room ” a Japanese online game by Toshimitsu Takagi, which spread in 2004 at great speed, all over the internet. The tremendous success of these online games is also the main reason for creating Real Life Escape Games.

Escape Games Tips


  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes so you can easily pass the obstacles in some of the rooms.
  • Have good communication with all your teammates. For the smooth outcome of the game, you must inform the rest of the team whenever you discover something, solve a puzzle, or just need help.
  • It is very important that there is someone in the group who will coordinate your actions and play the role of the leader.
  • Also, a very useful tip is to gather all the items and objects you find in a particular place, so that the whole group can see them.
  • Check every inch of the room. The clues may be hidden anywhere.
  • Finally, think creatively and work in harmony with your team.
