Escape-room games are small adventures and usually start allways the same way. You are a character who finds himself stuck in a place where he must escape from. Whatever the reason is for you to be in there, in general it is quite futile. You have extended your visit, you made a joke or you were tired and felt asleep.
You need to look around you and ask you what objects may well be helpful. By collecting and combining items together, you might get some surprises.
All kinds of escape games exist, and most of them are point-and-click games, such as the famous "Must Escape" series, in which you must escape each time from a different place.
