The growing popularity of escape room games is due to the excitement these games unleash in participants and of all ages. They allow you to break away from reality and experience a few moments in a completely different world as characters of amazing stories. Here you get into the middle of extraordinary events, and your only weapon is perceptiveness.
The origins of escape room games
It all started in the 1980s with computer text games, in which players influenced further gameplay by typing in text commands. In this way they solved puzzles, decided the fate of the characters, gave the gameplay a proper course. At the same time, games greatly developed the imagination and aroused the desire for adventure.
(R)evolution of games
From this genre evolved over time a new type of games commonly called “escape room” with a very characteristic “point and click” solution – it consisted of clicking the mouse on objects in the room. Participants thus collected equipment that could help solve puzzles and ultimately free themselves from the locked room. As a rule, they were “trapped” in a room, a house, a factory or a castle. A huge role was played at this stage by appearance. The graphics were developed and given an interesting atmosphere – often resembling an old, abandoned factory, etc.
The participant, in order to get out, had to collect clues and solve successive puzzles that led him to find the code or key to the main exit. Recipients loved this type of gameplay, where the main thing that mattered was cleverness, the ability to combine facts, and… there’s no denying patience. Searching all potential hiding places was highly engaging, but sometimes also annoying – because there were situations when clues appeared in places where there were none before only after finding an item or unlocking a particular level.
Escape room games in reality
The immense popularity of computer escape room games made people wonder whether to move such entertainment to the real world. In this way the experience would be even greater, while the preparation of a puzzle room was possible for almost everyone. Initially, the fashion for such real escape rooms appeared in Asia and became popular there, to penetrate over time to Europe. Here it settled for good and now you can enjoy this unusual entertainment in our Warsaw escape room in one of several themed puzzle rooms.

Initially there was an engaging storyline, then interesting graphics were added – computer escape room games provided strong impressions at the peak of their development and met the high expectations of players.
