Are These Escape Games?
It’s a loose definition, sure, but our answer is yes.
These games all make use of escape room style solving in different ways:
- aha-moments combined with process puzzles
- an element of discovery
- collaborative solves requiring teamwork
- mission-based adventures
Plus, many of these games are created by escape room companies, some even as extensions of the world of their real-life escape games.
