Stanno spopolando in tutto il mondo: dalla Silicon Valley al Nord America,  dall’Australia all’Asia, fino alle nostre città, le escape room o real-life room escape sono il teatro di un gioco che conquista gli amanti degli indovinelli e non solo.
Chi non si ricorda quel brividino sulla schiena che ci accompagnava quando, incollati allo schermo, ci immedesimavamo in quel poveretto che doveva sfuggire dalle grinfie del maniaco di turno –nella saga di Saw l’enigmista per dirne una-  percorrendo corridoi bui di edifici abbandonati, labirinti, case infestate?  I nerdoni più attenti si ricorderanno sicuramente dei freeware browser game per Adobe Flash: Behind Cloosed doors di John Wilson del lontano 1988, oppure MOTAS (The Mistery of Time and Space, del 2001) o di Crimsom Room di Toshumitsu Takagi del 2004. Tutti giochi in cui si presuppone che il giocatore si trovi imprigionato in un ambiente chiuso e che per liberarsi debba esplorarlo, reperire indizi, risolvere indovinelli e tranelli di ogni genere.
Sempre i nostri amici nerdoni si saranno certamente alterati perché non ho ancora nominato capolavori come Myst999 o Nine Doors, per PC e console, che basavano il tutto su una felice combinazione di acume e spirito investigativo.

Appurato che i presupposti di un’idea del genere c’erano già e, anzi, nell’era del virtualismo generale l’escape room risponde con una vera e propria iniezione di realtà, spieghiamo esattamente di cosa si tratta: chiusi in una stanza senza finestre e arredata a tema, in un minimo di due massimo di sei giocatori- almeno così è in Italia-  i partecipanti avranno sessanta minuti per uscire decifrando codici, aprendo lucchetti, dirimendo indovinelli. Di solito i giocatori ricevono istruzioni introduttive, poche indicazioni sulla storia e vengono seguiti a distanza da un “narratore”, ma l’unico comune denominatore è il tempo limitato, la necessità di attivare lo spirito di squadra e una serie di enigmi spremimeningi.

Ad oggi, nel mondo, sono state aperte circa 3000 escape room ma il numero è destinato a crescere visto il successo riscontrato. L’Italia è stata conquistata prima al Nord, tra Lombardia, Piemonte, Friuli Venezia Giulia e Trentino, ma ormai si può giocare anche in tutta l’Emilia Romagna e a Roma e a Napoli. Io controllerei dov’è l’escape room più vicina a casa mia, e voi?
