Computer games as a model

Escape rooms are inherently based on computer games, where the player is locked in a room and must explore their surroundings and figure out how to escape.

Inspiration for the themes of the games can also come from various adventure movies, books, etc. Consideration is given to the specifics of the location where the game is created. Sometimes you escape from a prison cell, other times from a space station, or return to the Middle Ages.

Within a limited time limit, you can become James Bond or Indiana Jones. Everything in the game is complemented by theme-based sounds, lighting and other multimedia effects for an even greater player experience.

Atmosphere is Key

Escape rooms can have the best theme in the world, but if it's not properly executed and the story is not well-crafted, it can be a flop. That's why game creators invest so much time and money into creating perfect and realistic sets for their escape rooms.

Rooms are constantly being improved and the latest technologies are used. People love to be scared, so many escape rooms take place in prison cells, psychiatric clinics, scary laboratories, and haunted houses.

You can also venture into ancient Egypt, follow the Templars, or trace the footsteps of inventors.

It's lucky that there are so many options and themes for escape rooms. At least people have a lot to choose from. However, some are more popular than others.

Prisons, wars, and agents
