Live escape games have been played around by people for over a decade now, but it has achieved its required fame in recent times.

The conception of escape games sprang from a point-and-click adventure computer game in the 1980s. There the players of the game were expected to escape captivity with the use of hints, puzzles and critical reasoning. The term ‘escape room’ came into effect in the early 2000’s.

Crimson room game became hugely popular and was spread across the internet. The aspect of these online games, which led them to be played live for people was – though these games did not have a time limit, they became harder and harder after crossing each level.

The Live Escape Games were developed by Takao Kato, the founder of SCRAP Co, in 2008 in Japan. Takao Kato got this idea about the game when he saw one of his female classmates playing an online game, where the player could click anywhere around the room to find clues and hints that would aid in unlatching the door of the room. Hence, he created the ‘real escape games’.
