Have you thought about playing an escape room game but cannot decide which is the right one for you? These are many kinds of interactive games to choose from. If you are weighing up the options, you can consider the most popular types of escape room available.

There is the linear escape room. It is one of the most common types of adventure game. It involves having players solve one puzzle at a time, before progressing to the next. The clues flow in a cohesive, linear structure. Hence the name. It is the ideal escape room game for beginners.

Players can also choose the non-linear escape room. It generally consists of a series of puzzles which a group of participants solve at the same time. However, they will all team up to decipher a huge climactic puzzle at the end. The escape room is perfect for experienced players and large groups.

People who play escape rooms often choose a mixed linear and non-linear game. It is basically one large puzzle which lead to a series of smaller puzzles. They all must be solved to solve the main one. The cycle will then begin again and carry on until the game is over.

There is also what is known as the red herring room. They can be a linear, non-linear escape game, or a combination of the two. But the defining aspect of the escape room game is that it is indeed riddled with red herrings. It is filled with a mix of both false and actual clues. They can either be legitimate clues or a piece of misdirection, to confuse and baffle the players. It is up to the players to figure it out.
