Can You Escape In 60 Minutes?
Real-life escape room games are a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. Some games include sub-plots. The games are based on “escape the room” video games in which the player is locked inside a room and must explore their surroundings in order to escape. Players must be observant and use their critical thinking skills to escape the room. Other inspirations include adventure board games and movies.
In recent months, a deranged serial killer who identifies himself as ‘Helter Skelter’ committed a number of ghastly murders around the United States. In 60 minutes, Helter Skelter will return to commit another gruesome crime. You must uncover clues, decipher riddles, discover the keys and Escape his lair!
